    Hi just ordered a nex f3 twin lens kit as a backup/travel camera for my Sony a77, im looking forward to receiving it so I can start to have a play. My wife also has a hx30v so we are fully covered and its all Sony. I shoot general photography and have no particular style of shot that I specialise in I just like to get out there and have a go. I still have a heap to learn about photography and still consider myself a beginner even though I have been doing it for a while. Anyway I am looking forward to learning all about the Nex system from you guys.

    Cheers Paul

    Welcome, Paul!

    I see from some rather witty YouTube clips that Sony is very active in your neck of the woods. That's a good thing! :)

    Well thank you and just to add a little info as to why I chose the f3 over the other models was simply a matter of price for me as I have a significant investment in my a77 and all the gear, all I really wanted was something I could chuck into the bottom of my backpack for when I do short air trips as the a77 and lenses takes up all of my wife's and my carry on allowance. I wouldn't expect that it would compete for quality with the a77 but it defiantly will make air travel a lot easier for us.

    Hello and welcome Simsy! Don't be surprised if your back-up camera gets used more and more... seems to be the way of the NEX :)
