Hi new here =] Very glad I found this place. I've placed my order for a NEX-7 a couple of weeks back and now patiently (actually impatiently) waiting for the camera to arrive. Can't wait to get it and start shooting again! Sucks to be camera-less right now, have to resort to phone cam for now haha Photography is just a hobby for me and I've went through numerous point and shoot cameras over the years then finally got my first dslr a few years back. It was great and loved the performance and image quality but then found myself leaving the camera at home more and more because I didn't want to lug around a big camera =/ I then discovered micro 4/3rd cameras and used those for a while but just wasn't happy with the image quality and performance. Went back to a dslr and then again find myself not using it again due to the size and weight lol So once again I went back to micro 4/3rd camera but just wasn't feeling it =/ Finally saw the NEX series and the 7 seems to fit my needs very well. Many P&S cameras --> Nikon D40 --> Canon XS --> Canon 50D --> Panasonic GF1 --> Nikon D7000 --> Panasonic G3 --> Olympus E-P3 --> Now the NEX-7 Anyways happy holidays and looking forward to participating more in this forum!
