Hey, so I am new here to this site but I have been using mirrorless for awhile now (formerly a E-Pm1) To give you a little background, I am 24, have been into photography for 3 years or so... started out with a D90, got bored, sold it, took a break from shooting, then about 1 1/2 years ago got into Film photography HEAVY... amassed over 30 SLR's and 150 Lenses. Some very high end. ANYWAY! I bought an E-PM1... it was ok... no hand grip made it very hard to use adapted lenses, and the screen res was just terrible... also I shoot Wide angle a LOT so having my expensive 24mm lens become basically a 50mm (48mm) was like paying for lobster and getting mcdonalds... not fun. SO i bought an NEX-3n when it came out... it solved the sensor size problem, made my 24mm into a 36mm... not so bad...BUT it had all the other problems as the E-PM1, crap screen, tiny body, no grip, point and shoot "feel"... and to boot it didn't have an ACC port for a VF... COME ON!! even the E-PM1 had that!! So I tried, I really tried to like it, then I got to use my friends NEX-F3 for a few days while he used my 3N... after those 3 days, he wanted his camera back... and I wanted to keep it.... THE 3N really isn't a 3 series at all IMHO they should have called it a NEX-2 ... it lost all of the F3's best features, yes, there are things that are better, build quality feels slightly better, but the F3 was fine... I never felt it was lacking honestly. And yea, a power zoom lens, I wasn't looking for that feature... and honestly, not very useful... The 3n has 1/2 the screen resolution, no ACC port for a VF, Slightly less FPS, Crippled Video, etc... So, I was at Target the other day, I saw the NEX-F3 for 399... I paid 499 for the 3N. So returned the 3N, got the F3, saved 100 bucks and got a better camera.... now with that 100 bucks I can almost buy a used EVF and basically have a NEX-6 (I know I know not exactly) for my purposes, which is using my old Minolta, Canon FD, Konica, etc lenses on a mirror less body with an EVF and Focus peaking.. SO anyway, let me know what you guys think. Have you tried them both? If so what was your feelings on the 2 camera's? Which one would you keep and why?
