I'll start off by saying that I have frustratingly limited subject matter in my office so I'll only include a couple of pics for now.
I have to say up front that I really like the C3 much better than the 5, here are a couple quick reasons,
The power switch is much easier to access, the buttons and wheel are more solid feeling, the body is less boxy and feels way better in hand. Although the shutter is loud, it seems quieter in the lighter body and the improved manual focus assist along with peaking make it a perfect match for legacy glass.

I see the twin kit lens is selling for £500 on amazon. Still have to pay the P&P on top of that but you might be able to persuade a camera shop to sell it at that price if he wants the sale.

It's interesting how so many people view a lack of NEX lenses as a reason to pass and how many others (such as myself) view the ability to use more or less ANY lens as a big incentive to own a NEX.......

I shelved my NEX for MONTHS precisely due to lack of lenses.
The only reason why I'm using it now is because of v4 firmware/LA-EA1 adapter and A-Mount primes...

Well, the new NEX-5n has been announced and that has made my mind up, I'm going for that rather than the NEX-C3 as it has an electronic viewfinder accessory, and a better sized grip too.


Cheers, Macjim.
