Alot people afraid the lens would look "cheap" when comes in silver..but this metalic silver is nice..especially when paired with NEX metal finishing body ...

*falling in love with this baby:lovegrin:

This is gonna be a perfect alternative for street shooters! Sony is really bypassing its competitors by coming out with a crop mirrorless camera! Sexayy!

Most importantly would like to know how the Contrast Detect AF works, whether is it fast enough...

It'll be a shame if it has the same issues as Oly EP and EPLs...

Could u also test how fast the camera startup and shutdown is, basically i think it's a great camera , before i buy i just want to know how big step down from the a900 it is in terms of slugishness and af speed etc. The form factor is just too tempting.

I got to hold it for a while evening at OP.. Think the guy should be also from CS?
Really nice and small camera... Though small, the grip is easy to hold... And one thing I like is the tilting screen and panaromic shot function... The innovative "smile" function that triggers the shutter makes this a fun camera ;)

I will like to thank the guy for showing and explaining the specs and functions to me... ;) finally see something I like from Sony...

the panoramic shot function - does it have max shutter speed?

i mean, based on the sony ads i've seen on the NEX cameras, it seems to be taken at high speed.
