Hi all Apologies for probably naive questions... but maybe I won't be the only guy coming up from a point and shoot wanting to upgrade but not sure whether Nex is right. I've been shooting a v basic Canon point and shoot compact, 4 megapixels (less than most mobiles now ...), nothing special at all, for about 5 years and it's finally packed up. I had a lot of fun with it and although it was budget it came out with some interesting images. I stumbled across the Nex 3 recently in Moscow - a mate of mine has one and while I didn't have a go on it (a bit intimidating compared to my late Canon!), he recommended it highly. He emailed me the pics afterwards and I remember opening the first picture and simply being blown away by the sharpness and all round lushness of colour. The pictures were well composed in fairness, but even when they weren't... it didn't kill the pictures! The c3 seems to be getting great reviews and seems to stand out on account of the APS-C sized sensor. What does this mean? That it is bigger than the competitors - like the Olympus Pen series that's about to break? The Pen epl3 for instance looks pretty neat to me, but is the image quality going to cut it? The reviews all seem to suggest the Sony is really quite a lot better than other m4/3. Anyone got thought? Does anyone have systems they can compare? And how much better is a SLR of, let's say, £500, going to be on pure image production? Would appreciate any thoughts. Although frankly, am pretty set on buying one. Saving the pennies!
