    Started browsing here couple weeks ago after I bought my first NEX...the 6, so finally registered. Look forward to learning more about these systems, exploring posibilites and learning about photography in general. I'm just a hobbyist and used to shoot with Canon XSi/450d few years ago but then moved to a P&S Canon S90. I've decided I wanted something better than small Canon, but not as large/bulky as DSLR so ended up here after some research. Here are few sample shots with the kit 16-50 PZ lens. I'm waiting for the other 3 lenses in my sig to show up any day so I can play some more and I'll likely sell the 16-50mm, or trade it for 55-210.

    Welcome. I love the second shot...maybe because I drive a Jetta and have owned several other Vdubs. Of course the other shots are pretty great too.

    Welcome to the NEX and to the forum. Nice shots. You'll find you won't miss a dslr as much as you thought you would.

    I've always wanted to put a fisheye pointing straight up directly under that thing. Just to see what it would look like. :)
