  1. I second this – I’ve been using a NEX-5N since last October with great results. Every camera is a compromise, but this travels well and takes great photos. I love my sister’s Nikon D800, but it is completely impractical for the photography I do. And my iPhone 4 (not the S — I’m waiting for the 5) is excellent for those times when it is impractical to carry the Sony.

    I’ve become a great believer in simplicity and, with experience, realize amazing images can be taken with almost anything if you are good enough Often the constraints of a simple camera are the best path to inspiring creativity.

    1. I have a GF-1 and I totally love it. I just think the new Nex5n is more contemporary and upto data in terms of features
