I have a friend asking me for an opinion. I'll consider her a hobbyist, who will probably use auto/program mode most of the time, but might slowly start exploring basic settings.
Her requirements are as such:
- Budget of $800-$1200
- Good low light performance (either fast lens or good ISO performance)
- Preferably able to take tele
I've considered the following:
Prosumers like the Canon G16 seem decent, but with her budget I think she can get something with a larger sensor.
Entry level CSCs like the NEX-3N, but the lens range seems limited. Able to get body + fast WA + tele for $1200?
RX100? Is that within budget?
Haven't been keeping up with the entry level DSLRs as of late, perhaps they are an option?
Hope to get some comments!
