Ouch. 30 days? That's... quite a while. I would prefer post count.

EDIT: This is what it should look like:

You just need to be registered to see the for sale section actually.

fredmiranda is also a good site for used gear, they are less canon orientated so youll have a much larger chances of finding nikon, pentax, etc.

Seem to be a lot more lenses than bodies/kits, but I'll keep browsing. Thanks for the heads up.

I'm a current Nex-5 owner and I have to say you worry way too much about the UI. With the firmware update, I have to say I can access most of my commonly used functions (wb, iso, hdr) very easily, much more so than any p&s I ever owned (mostly Canon). The lack of buttons is scary for ppl coming from using a dslr on regular basis. If you own p&s previously, the amount of buttons are about the same.

But having said all that, I don't think the Nex-3/5 is right for you because of the price and limited lens selection. The only megazoom lens for the NEX is $800, way beyond your budget. The m43 are not much better, I think the lens are just as exp and the body is even more exp than the Nex. My recommendation for you is to look for a megazoom with the larger sensor. I think Canon is coming out with one (220sx?)which will give you better IQ and better low ligh photos w/o paying the big bucks for a dslr (and lens).

I think the main annoyance I had was that when you were trying to change a selection in the menu, it the live view is completely blocked. However, I have not found any videos that covers the new firmware update, other than those that show the horribly slow AF with Alpha lenses. If you could post how it's supposed to look when changing settings using a customized configuration for the buttons, that would be great. It doesn't have to be a video per se, maybe just a picture.

Yea, that is also my other concern. The lack of internal IS presents a situation in which manual focus is a must, if I need anything longer than the kit lens, which I have no doubt I would.

I am currently looking at the Nikon P500, and have also recently discovered the Sony HX100V. The Sony's specs seem especially impressive, though both use a BIS CMOS. They are only separated by $50, which isn't too bad. However, I still question their relative PQ versus the likes of the NEX or the M43 offerings.

I'm not entirely sure how IS and manual focusing being necessary are related.

how often do you expect to change settings in the menu, more specifically what settings are you changing?

scroll down 1/2 way down to see the list of possible softkey options LINK

i have no idea what you are talking about with MF and IS but the kit zoom lens and the 18-200 are both stabilized in the lens, like for canon and nikon dslr.
