    Correct! To bouncers, it's not a "pro" camera, they don't mind it.

    got the 7fps if not wrong. chances are a few frame should be somewhat sharp.

    The NEX lenses have in-lens IS. If you want in-body, I recommend A33/A55.

    Not saying they don't have but it is expensive for a 18-200mm and only one?

    The K-r and K-x has the same sensor as used in Sony's A500.

    To TS, I would advice that buying a camera boils down to your preference, seeking advice here seems to end with no clear result as both cameras has each and own strenghts and weaknesses.

    But to my own personal side of advice, I would get a k-x if I venture deeply into photography. NEX is good, at it's own ways. But lacking external direct controls and physical viewfinder is main no-no. Size is also a concern as the lighter the lesser your ability to handhold a shot on a dim lighted situation. But with it's high iso capability? It seems to be neutralized.
    lastly, whichever camera you hold on to will work great, if you have the desire to take good encouraging picture. High spec of gadgetry will not work if it's sitting down and collecting dust in your cabinet.

    Cheers,

    Opps ! ...you're right ! ...the K-7 uses a Samsung CMOS sensor, but the successor K-5 certainly does !

    To TS, what makes the most sense, is to just go down to a camera store and try out both cameras, or any other cameras. Hold it in you hand. drive the menus, see what you prefer. Every one is different. That is why makes the world so wonderful.

    i evaluated the nex-5 when i was looking to buy a camera... its very light and quite decent... the only thing is, all controls are on screen and sometimes, it can be a bit less user friendly if you have to shuffle through menus to change settings

    i ended buying a k-x... but i would suggest you wait and get the k-r - it'll be out in singapore in mid-oct
