We've just updated our Sony NEX-3 Hands-on Preview to Full Review status.
Though it's not quite as aggressively small as the NEX-5, the Sony NEX-3 is a great value, offering the same image quality in a slightly larger package for $100 less. And though it's larger than the NEX-5, the Sony NEX-3 is still smaller than competing mirrorless interchangeable-lens digital cameras. The NEX-3's 14.2-megapixel sensor turns out excellent images at all ISO settings, rivaling digital cameras that cost hundreds of dollars more. Smooth and sleek, the Sony NEX-3's tight design conceals a tilting 3-inch LCD screen with 921,000-dot resolution, and the two available kits include a comparatively small lens with an attractive metal barrel. Sony's latest hot features are included in the camera, too, like Sweep Panorama, Auto High-Dynamic Range, Handheld Twilight, and Anti-Motion Blur modes. The one major difference between the Sony NEX-3 and NEX-5 is that the HD video mode is limited to 720p MP4 recording; other than that, it's the NEX-5 in a larger body at a lower price.
