    I sometimes use a viewfinder on the OMD and Sony A65, but that is even rare,
    LCD screen point and shoot style for me......

    Your car is always so clean. Even the underside from the shot of the back.

    The recent price for the 3N of $350 with the 16-50mm pancake was quite a bargain.

    re

    nice pics !!
    What a coincidence , today i handled a nex3n in the shop , and it felt very good.
    Where would you put it against Oly pens regarding AF speed , high ISO , IQ .....
    BTW for one shot , i see you almost broke your back... why not tilt the screen :)

    Yes the 3N with the 16-50PZ certainly is tiny!

    Sweet ride. How do you like the interface vs your SLT? I take you wouldn't be getting the adapter to use SLT lenses on the NEX?

    I think the IQ of a APSC sensor is hard to beat, but it is a hard pick between the IQ of the Nex and my OMD, however, I think it takes the PL25MMF/1.4 on the OMD against the Sony Kit lens for me to say that..

    AF speed is good enough for me, I have done many lowlight shots of musicians with the Nex 3n, and have no issues with autofocus and jacking up ISO.

    I like 3d pop to my images, and can regularly get that look with my Sony Rx1 full frame, not so much with the Nex 3n, I do find that the OMD can give me this look with the PL25mm f/1.4, and have nailed it on a few 14mm f/2.5 shots, the OMD is amazing for such a small sensor. As you probably know, Sony produces the OMD sensor.... Sony is amazing....

    I think the Sony Nex 3n wil be even better with quality glass, as of now, all I own is the kit lens. I just jumped in to this camera as the price went really cheap, and I am finding I like it better then my small Rx100...

    The interface isn't on par with the A65 or the Rx1, and even my Rx100.

    But I figured out how to get to the settings I need to change in manual mode rather quickly,

    I have never really been one to complain about what a camera can't do or what controls it doesn't have, rather I adjust to it and focus on what it can do, with that said, the Nex 3n interface is lacking... This camera was $399, and made for a excellent APS-C camera that a point and shoot user could use and get 'DSLR' image quality, and yet still grow with the camera...

    Little camera, small price, and the IQ, a big punch!

    She....she is a bad girl.... Chantilly Lace...


    she is a 2011, and at 10k miles she was taken to ADM Performance in Lewisville Texas outside of Dallas...

    Her engine came out, and new parts went in, Ligenfelter cam, Ligenfelter heads, new fuel system to support the Whipple Blower at 11psi, new rear end gears...

    amongst many other things..

    Got damn that is sweet motor, I take it's the L99?

    How would you say the color output 3N compare to the SLT and RX1? Because, what ever you did with camera settings, or in post processing really has made the color feel lively, and pop.

    It was a L99, the Ligenfelter GT11 camshaft converted it to a LS3.


    The 3n color is decent, a few of those images were shot with the Rx1, the color, dynamic range, clarity of the Rx1 is stunning, and the best my eyes have seen.

    The A65 is somewhat dullish, but, can be recovered nicely in post processing.

    The micro contrast from the Zeiss on the Rx1 also plays a role in the color, I can't give that camera enough praise..

    I know people will think, one needs to justify it due to the purchase price, but in the case of the Rx1, it lives up to its billing. Sure, it can't change lenses, it is a fixed focal length, no viewfinder, I get all that, I would/will put up its IQ against anything. Any camera, anything. That is my opinion, and I realize others wont share it.

    I have shot with many cameras and bodys, and the Sony Rx1 kicks them all to the curb if we are talking pure IQ.


    This type of file, regularly comes out of the Rx1:


    chan-331.


    This has minimal post processing and is a jpq, I have yet to shoot a raw image with the Rx1.... I am a jpg only type of person, the Rx1 in the hands of some of you more experienced and better photographers would really produce some astonishing results.

    I just helped a co-worker research and compare mirrorless cameras, then took her shopping at the camera district. She picked the NEX 6 with the same kit lens and it is quite impressive.
