Sony NEX FEVER!!!!!!!!
I love the Sony NEX so much, I bought another one today. Hehehe. Decided to get the NEX-5 with 18-55mm and 16mm twin lens kit this time. I've had the NEX-3 for a few days now and am totally happy with the image quality and all so I reckon the 18-55mm will be good for backpacking holidays. My wife prefers a zoom lens with image stabilization and she asked me to get the 18-55mm for her. Since I have to go and buy the 18-55mm, I figured I would just go out and buy the whole kit today. Decided on the NEX-5 this time since I already have the NEX-3. Hehe.
I'll just use the pancake and my wife will use the 18-55mm when we go on our backpacking holidays. No more worries about damaging our expensive SLRs and also the fear of being robbed since we like exploring and taking pictures of everyday life in slum areas. The NEX is so cheap, if we damage or lose it, it's easily replaceable and we're back on track since most camera stores will be selling the NEX. I can't imagine damaging or losing our SLRs while on holiday. It will be a nightmare, financially and also photographically speaking. We will still bring along the SLRs but we wont be using them in the slum areas anymore. It's a bit scary, really.
