Summary: I am abosutley in love with this camera . Came packaged amazingly . Great resolution and very user friendly . You will need to buy a charger or additional batteries. Update 11.16.15 I still love this camera but today after not using for about 3 weeks went to turn it on and its says lens not attached...
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.
Great camera! Takes good photos and handles my abuse

Summary: Great camera! Takes good photos and handles my abuse. Image quality is competitive with entry level DSLRs. Lenses are a bit more expensive than with the more common types, especially cannon. Only complaint is that without a viewfinder shooting in the sun can be problematic.
Summary: I love this camera! As a novice photographer I wanted a camera that had a great auto feature and some "extra" features that I could play around with. This fits the bill. Pros: The auto shoot mode takes fabulous pictures both indoors and out.
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 was very happy with my camera until one of my lenses went bad and the camera refused taking pictures saying "Cannot recognize lens. Attach it properly". I was in Europe for couple months and I quickly found the Sony does not have international warranty and I could not get the lens repaired.
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.

Summary: A really solid camera. I debated between this and the Nex 5 and 6 as well as some other for a while. I opted for the least expensive model because I know from experience that I won't use a camera that doesn't fit in my pocket very often.
Summary: I really like this camera; I am interested in learn about photography for hobby purposes, so this was a great investment without breaking the bank. I really love the fact that you can use a SD card instead of just the proprietary Sony memory card.
