See this is what I like about the nex it takes nice pictures without much noise. In those photos you have the color Red and Black for the case. Many of the photos have noise on the black portions of the photos. With a nex this happens a lot less. I'm not saying you will have no noise in all your photos because if you crank up the ISO you will see noise definitely. It will just be a lot less of a occurrence. Color vibrancy also seems better on the camera then on my buddies Nikon. It's really noticeable if you get a chance to shoot in a properly lit studio setup. What really surprised me also was the outdoor photos. When you have a nice sunny day the colors really pop on the cameras photos. This is also good to know because if you are looking at example photos from the camera look for indoor photos to get a gauge because the outdoor photos look really nice.
With that said the downside to shooting outside is reflection on the LCD. This is the only thing I would use a EVF for if it had one. I work around it with positioning or taking a photo then going back and looking at it from another angle.
You also obviously had that camera on a auto setting because it was taking flash photos at close range. Red eye and close range flashes wont happen on a nex because the flash isn't even connected! The nex has one of the smartest auto functions I've ever seen on a camera as well. It's by no means perfect, but I generally use it for most photos and if I don't like the results I manually control it. Most photos with a lot of movement tend to require me to manually drive the camera. Photos of still images and portrait style photos the camera finds and focuses without any issue.
Speaking of movement the camera takes very fast photos with the shutter. I can easily do 7 photos a second with the auto-shoot. You of course need a fast SD card to do this. This is where I feel the nex and other mirriorless camera have an edge over conventional SLR's for movement photos. Taking photos of say a lighting storm is very easy on this thing.Edited by lavis - 4/18/12 at 10:53am
