I have been considering adding another camera to my tool kit. I very much like my 5R, and the ability to use a variety of legacy lenses. It has exceptional low light handling, and I use the articulating screen a lot. The fixed screen alone is one reason I am hesitant to buy an A3000; that, and the repeated assertions in many reviews that the EVF and LCD are bad. Some of you, however, have stated you have no problem with the A3000 EVF or LCD. Perhaps if I can find a used A3000 body cheaply I may give it a try. Any camera I buy would have to have an EVF - that is the one shortcoming I find in the 5R. Even with the display set for sunny conditions, I often have difficulty using the display screen outdoors. Looking at options, I could just buy the detachable EVF. It is rather expensive, and I am concerned about its durability. I could save my pennies and buy a Nex-6 body. That may be the route I go, because I like the sensor, the focus peaking, the EVF, and the ability to use legacy lenses. Another option I've considered is buying an A57. It does have a lot of features I want, but if my understanding is correct, with the A-mount the use of legacy MF lenses goes out the window. That's a downer. I don't have incredibly deep pockets, so the A7/7R are not a consideration. Thoughts? I'm not asking for anybody to tell me what to do, but if anyone else has been in a similar situation, and what worked for you. Tony PS: I'm still dreaming of a weather-sealed E-mount camera in a small DSLR-like form factor with the innards of a high-end Nex.
