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: This camera goes everywhere with me, its cheap enough, small enough, and works well enough to get the shots I dont plan for. I have 3 other cameras I will purposely take before this one, but this one has given me the chance at some wonderful pics just because it is there, also the shots I can manage...
Summary: Camera is small and light-weight, good for hiking & nature photography. Excellent macro. Stabilization is excellent even when zooming in movie mode. However in movie mode the zoom mechanism is very loud and can be heard on the video.
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: This is a great camera for new photographers looking to get more serious about their hobby. I love the size and look of the camera; It's light and slim enough to take hiking (I have even carried biking and skiing) but takes amazing pictures.
Summary: The price for this camera with the 16-50 was just too good to pass up. 300.00 was such a deal. I use this for concerts as usually can take it in as a point and shoot. The large sensor is perfect for no flash pictures. The build is great but no magnesium or metal body but still super solid.
Summary: This camera has a ton of features, it does take some time to learn all the functions. One thing I really liked is that the description is on view screen for each function that you scroll to so you don't have to get the manual out to look everything up.
Summary: First, I highly recommend this camera for someone who likes Auto, I-Auto, or Superior Auto, or any of those automatic modes. Sony does a good job in those modes. Sony's stitch panorama is the best of any maker. Fuji is a close second.
