One of my good friends was going to sell me his NEX 5 when he got his 7 (sometime this week) for a screaming deal. He told me it had a few over exposure problems with toy mode and high contrast b/w since the last firmware upgrade. I was willing to overlook those small issues for the $200 price including kit 18-55, and a bunch of other extras. But He called me today saying that there was all kinds of other issues starting to pop up. LCD kinda going on and off, and a few other things involving "bumping it on somthing" to make it work. He said he wouldn't sell it to me with all these things happening because he knows I wont be happy with it. But did offer possibly the whole kit for $100 to see if I could make it work. I tinker with electronics frequently and the thought of opening it up doesn't scare me at all, just have no idea what I would be looking for. Could just be a loose cable somewhere, or is it something else? Who knows. Then started looking at kit prices around the net and ebay for a 5N, that 100 bucks could go towards a new kit. Or I buy it and then look for a 5n body only at a decent price. The SEL1588 seems to be going for at lease 200 on ebay. Decisions, decisions. What would you do?
