Summary: I, like a number of NEX users, find that many Sony E-mount lenses are really not up to snuff, and buying E-mount CZ lenses that cost several times more than the NEX5 body doesn't seem like a cost effective solution.
Excerpt: I recently had to buy a camera as a gift for somebody who had very good artistic ability, but who didn’t want a typical DSLR camera. I got the Sony Alpha NEX 5, and so far it seems like it was a very good choice.
Excerpt: I am back with a review of Sony NEX-5. I had this camera with me during the winter holidays, and I thought that it would be a good idea to share my opinion about it for the people who are interested in buying one.
Summary: I've been using this camera a while and my opinion regarding its quality looks like this: Its design is very interesting. IT feels very handy. But that's about all with the pros. The cons are as follows: it has no flash and this is a big disadvantage.
Summary: Item was delivered without original packaging and with no paperwork. The product was advertised as New but without original packaging and paperwork it leads me to believe that it isn't new. With that being said the product functions fine and haven't any other discrepancies.
Excerpt: I really enjoy the tilt feature on the viewfinder. The presets like landscape produce some great results. The only draw back for me is you have to make sure you have a full charge on your battery when you head out for the day.
