Summary: Bought it for video, along with an adapter for my nicer Nikon lenses. Sony has the best sensors and it shows, this camera takes excellent video. The sound is not great, but is sufficient for syncing up whatever sound you record off-camera.
Summary: Good mirror-less camera. Auto-focus is OK but could be faster. Good low light images. No viewfinder. Large image sensor for small size camera. Sony lenses available for NEX cameras in good but not great.
Summary: I bought this but I noticed that the serial number on the camera and the lens were covered with black marker. It makes me wonder if this was stolen or if there is any other reason. This is a good camera, but at this price with the other add-ons, one wonders the reason behind this.
Take some pretty amazing pictures for such a tiny camera.

Summary: Awesome camera to take hiking and just everywhere you don't want to lug your big dslr. Takes amazing photos, although you do have to double check the focus at times. Not really an action camera although I have achieved some great shots at a local baseball game.
Summary: Great camera! I just upgraded from a Canon digital Elph camera because I wanted to have the option of changing lenses. I'm still learning to use it, but at this price, it makes a great camera and takes wonderful pictures.
I sold my T3i and bought a Sony NEX -- no regrets!

Summary: I sold my T3i in search of a compact camera that takes crisp pictures in RAW while also capable of shooting HD video-- without the weight, bulk, and "Hey, I'm a tourist!" look of the dSLR. I thought I was going to go Olympus PM-2, but wanted a tilted screen. The PL-5 felt awkward and cheap.
Summary: Perfect for traveling and take selfies; I buy it specially for a long travel I will make with my GF and the camera really worked perfect, we took such awesome pictures, and the battery is great, the charge last for days; I use different lens and they fit well, even with adapter non from the same...
Summary: Camera was exactly as advertised. Wanted something smaller than DSLR but with room to add lens. Nice feel in hand. Removed the neck strap after one session and added a single wrist strap. Has all the controls you might want, while retaining several auto modes that make it as easy as a point & shoot.
Summary: I've been using Canon equipment so far as an amateur photographer. This is my 1st Sony and we are in a good relationship so far. Quality and compatibility are just great, being able to save RAW and interchangeable lens are killer features.
