    Not sure man. New technology, will have to really play with it to see if it's worth it.

    So after looking through specs, reviews etc., this looks like it might be a neat little gadget. It seems to have most everything a generic SLR has. The biggest con that people didn't like was the menu system. The biggest cons that I can foresee is the lack of aftermarket support, cost of additional lenses and flash systems.

    In general and without physically playing with it, I think this could give you great pictures but if you want to seriously get into photography with flash and zoom lenses, you might as well spend your $600 on a real SLR.

    pretty cool camera...has a few drawbacks

    I wouldn't get it unless you really couldn't carry a full size SLR though

    I have a Sony Alpha SLR (A350) and while I love the camera (my 1st SLR) the one major drawback to it is that accessories are nearly impossible to find. The only lenses, flashes, etc that fit are made by Sony. No one locally carries Sony stuff so I'm left to get everything online (I do prefer to shop local as much as possible). While Sony is a great company, there are better lens manufacturers that I would prefer to buy but can't. If I were to purchase again, I would have gone with either Canon or Nikon just for that reason. I just didn't know any better at the time. So be warned that you will be limited in what accessories you can purchase.

    In the case of the nex...I would be wary of it because its a brand new model with no track record and you are banking soley on Sony's reputation. I would say take the plunge and get a real SLR, whatever brand.

    For that price, I would just go with DSLR. If you want point and shoot flexibility, there's Nikon D5000 with picture quality comparable to higher models such as D90 and D300s. It shoots HD video too.
