Summary: Once (if) the send me a back up battery that fits the camera (the one they sent is too big) I will edit and increase the rating on my review. Other than that, the camera is awesome but not worth the extra money if included accessories don't work and/or are the wrong size.
5 days after return period was over, camera no longer works properly.

Summary: --- updated 2013-06-10 --- Problem detecting lens lasted several days, then suddenly no problem. Two days later, got the non-ucommon "Reinsert memory card" error. Card is good. Multiple cards report same failure, but work fine elsewhere. Cannot even format in camera due to error. Formatted fine on computer as well as another camera. factory re-set the camera, problem persists. Sony says I need to send in for repair.
Excerpt: Like many I am looking for a replacement for my 5D mIII that I find I'm leaving home too often due to its weight. Having tried and returned 2 Fuji's - X100 and X1 Pro, great colour but unacceptably slow focusing - I thought the Sony NEX would fit the bill. Over the Xmas holiday I had borrowed a NEX 7 and was generally impressed with it.
Summary: sony NEX is a rubbish camera which has problem with lens wiggles around the camera body and causes clicking sound. It can cause lens not to be recognized by camera or become unresponsive. If you shoot video this annoing sound passed into video, if you zooming during video and lens wiggles it can cause recording to stop on its own. I’ve got NEX5N and NEX6 and returned both of them. It is a joke!
Massive Design Flaw - Now Replaced by the far superior Fuji XE-2

Summary: Great camera and lenses, (see other reviews) BUT there is a massive design flaw. When in HDR or Auto bracketing modes you cannot use the self timer or an electronic shutter release, EXACTLY THE TIME YOU NEED THEM TO AVOID VIBRATION!!! It's only when you start to use the camera that you discover this glaring design flaw, then it's too late! With my Canon SLR kit, I can set the camera on the tripod and release the shutter via the self timer thereby negating any vibration.
Summary: Tolle Kamera, tolle Haptik und sensationelle Bilder bis Blende 13. Ab dieser Blende waren auf all meinen NEX-Kameras (ich hatte drei) Flecken zu sehen, die auch vom Kundendienst nicht entfernt werden konnten. Man hat mir Bildbearbeitungssoftware empfohlen. Wem eine Kamera reicht, die nur bis Blende 13 fotografieren kann, wird nichts besseres finden. Wer als Profi eine Kamera voll ausschöpfen will, wird mit dieser nur partiell glücklich.
