I recently bought a Sony NEX-5N kit for $700 plus tax at a local Best Buy. Unfortunately I had to return it to cover other expenses. I wanted another NEX camera to keep up with the fun on this site and have been looking around for a good deal. Other members here and elsewhere told me about how Fry's and Target had clearances on NEX-3 16mm kits for $300, and there were even reports of Target briefly marking that camera down to $150 (!), but I could never find one for those prices. Amazon had NEX-3 16mm kits for under $450, and that seemed like a good option. My local Best Buy was willing to sell me a pretty clean floor model NEX-3 18-55 kit for $425 or a scratched up floor model NEX-5 18-155 kit for $500, both very reasonable deals. In the end, I found a barely used NEX-C3 16mm kit for $425 and jumped on that. This whole process reminded me just how much money one can save by being on the lagging edge of technology. The C3 was introduced just months ago, and already there is a fairly robust used market. Psyched to get my new old C3!
