I had a bunch of Sony gift cards and decided to take advantage of the newly reduced price of the NEX 6 and ordered a NEX 6 with 16-50mm kit lens. I haven't decided yet, but I may also buy the two lens Sigma kit at B&H. Then I will be cut off. This is going to replace my F3 with the 18-55, which I haven't had as much time to use over the winter as I would have liked, but have otherwise been impressed with. Nonetheless, I prefer a built in EVF, the little bit of added control of the mode dial and the added compactness of the power zoom lens, among some other features. Hopefully I will be happy and will really get down to learning the art of photography. First test will be a vacation coming up in about two weeks to Florida.
