I always have had a good quality second camera, at present I have the NEX 6. had the GF1, NEX 3 and 5n , I honestly thought that the NEX would be a deal breaker and I would go down that road, however, today, re evaluating the equipment I have and ease of use and results from the 700 and 580 I have decided that for me the NEX is remaining a second camera. I will be keeping the native lenses 16mm, WA for 16mm and 16-50 zoom but will not buy any more kit for the NEX. I was toying with the idea of flash triggers and wireless shutter release for the NEX but I have all these for the 580/700, so really I'm just duplicating for the sake of it, and as this stuff demands the use of a tripod and flashstands , portability goes out of the window. I had my a580 out today and it is such a superior camera in almost every respect except portability, although I will be using the NEX more than the other cameras ,it will always be my 2nd choice camera for serious photography. I will still be on the forum and keeping up,this is not a bad place to be. Has anybody else had this revelation,for want of a better word.
