    Hi everyone,

    DSLR noob here. Just got my NEX 6 last weekend. Very happy with the camera. Went further and purchased tripod and few more Sigma lenses. I hope I'll have some photos to share soon.

    Welcome Klikerko, welcome to the forum and the NEX. We look forward to your photo offerings. :)

    Just a point- the NEX family of cameras are not DSLRs, they are Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Cameras (MILC), or Compact System Cameras (CSC), or could also be considered Electronic Viewfinder Interchangeable Lens (EVIL) cameras (for those with viewfinders).

    But, they can't be Digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) cameras because they have no mirror, which is the "reflex" part of DSLR.

    Just in case you wanted to know. ;)

    I like the EVIL moniker. Goes along with Nikon and their Black Cameras which I currently shoot.

    Thanks everyone!

    Bimjo, thanks for clarification. I guess that sealed my noob status :)... MILC noob status.
