Sony NEX are compelling little cameras. They’re not the best at everything, autofocus is their Achille’s heel, but they also have very real and unique strengths, Focus Peaking aid for using older manual lenses, useful tilt screens, and truly excellent APS-C sensors with great ISO performance and cool DOF control.
Nothing like the Top-of-the-line NEX 7, my most serious tool.
No matter what NEX body I use, what matters is the end result, the “IQ” (image quality) as hobbyists and photo enthusiasts call it. So why did I miss NEX so much, while I had both a super cool m4/3 Panasonic GX-1 and cult Fuji X100 at hand ??
So until Fuji get their AF shit together (in the process as I write this…) AND offer Focus Peaking (idem), NEX is my system of choice, ESPECIALLY since I got the new SEL35/1.8, which *finally* delivers an acceptable (read “usable”) level of AF performance.
Of course the Fuji X10 still ROCKS
