I received my new Nex 3N today from Amazon and so far am feeling pretty disappointed to be honest. I REALLY wanted to be impressed with this inexpensive little camera that would fit in my purse that I sold my canon s100 on eBay in preparation for receiving its replacement. Now, please understand I am just take snapshots for the most part although I have a basic understanding of aperture ISO shutter speed and how to adjust them each, but when all is said and done, I get ”pretty dag-gone good" photos on Auto or scene mode so that is where I tend to leave it 90 percent of the time. Several years ago I had a Canon XSI with the kit lens which actually took awesome photos, and more recently a Sony A55 with 18-250 which I also really liked but in the end they were just too big for me to carry around and I have been making do with the s100. I travel internationally for months at a time with only one carry on so space and weight is at a premium. I had used a Nex last fall and was pretty impressed. I took pictures with my friends NEX at her sons game for her when she couldn't attend and while it was not a DSLR, it was quick enough to get some great shots. It was a 5 (C or F or something) and it seemed so much better than this N3! Only downside was the large lens... This camera seems sluggish in so many ways....... I assumed that since they put the 1650 lens on the Nex 6 that it was going to be an awesome lens but the AF is slow slow slow! Did I just end up with a dud? Or is this just characteristic of the N3? I am feeling so disappointed right now.... I guess it was too good to be true after all I can't get my s100 back and I do not want another BIG camera.... The NEX 3N with the retractable lens was as big as I want to go. But I do want my "snapshots" to look GREAT! I would prefer to stay around the $500-$600 dollar range.... Any thoughts?
