The answer I'm looking for might not be as simple as that string title suggests. I posted in the NEX forum on this site (no responses - it's not too busy there) about my sudden interest in the NEX C3 with the 16mm pancake, which can now be had for $499. I'm not really interested in building a big NEX kit - but I wouldn't mind trying something new for not too much money. Responses from NEX users on sister site mu-43.com indicate almost all NEX cameras are quite good with excellent IQ, but tend to be let down by mediocre kit lenses and difficult user interfaces (although the newest cameras are better on this last point). But I wonder if the new Sigma 19mm and 30mm primes for the NEX series will be better. It sounds like it won't take much to beat the Sony kit lenses and the Sigmas aren't expected to be expensive. So...my question is: C3 with 16mm pancake for $499... or 5N body-only for $599 and wait for the Sigma primes to hit the store shelves? Understand that while I'm sure the NEX-7 is wonderful (especially with all those controls and built-in viewfinder), I am not looking for spend anything close to that amount of money and would probably have only two lenses (19 and 30 sounds great to me) for whatever NEX I might purchase. Your thoughts and suggestions are welcome. This not a purchase that's necessary, given the other cameras and lenses I own. But the NEX system is quite interesting and I wouldn't mind a little adventure into NEX-land if I can keep costs under control.
