Same price at amazon.

The twin lens deal is better IMO

Can you link the amazon one? I can't find it...its £420 for what I can see....

The twin lens deal is great, although not sure how many would need the 16mm pancake lens especially when you have 16mm on the kit lens (although not f2.8 or as sharp but the deal and the camera is aimed at people wanting a step up from a compact, the 16mm pancake is only useful for landscape photographer like myself really).

I think I would use the pancake more than the zoom, its pretty good by all accounts.

The amazon deal seems to be a 2-4 weeks delivery time now:

Hot from me, just got the same deal from Amazon but they are now sold out so this is the one to go for.

Bought one in Black, as Amzon is on a long wait time (2-4 weeks) and only in silver

Think it looks much better in black.

id love to get one of these i think they look great! but then i dont actually know anything about photography they just look like a nice step up towards DSLR from standard digital cameras

Great price so I've voted Hot.

The camera body is tiny for a mirrorless APS-C sensor type but once you put that big kit lens on it sort of defeats the object of why you have this type of camera.....

The black's the same price
Does this only use the irritating memory stick ?

I am very very tempted,

So the only difference between the Nex 3 and Nex5 is the 1080p video recording???

What is the pancake lens used for?

I am a noob

I think the Nex5 has a metal body too.

very little difference between nex5 and nex3.

on top of nex3 features, the nex 5 has
1080i AVCHD insted of 720p h264.
metal body, thats tiny bit smaller and lighter
a ir receiver for remote control.

so there u go, thats the full list. I couldn't justify the extra £150 for the nex5 for just those features so yesterday went for the nex3

I got the NEX-3 on Saturday. I went for the dual lens kit from Amazon. Much better deal tbh when you look at the price of the extra lense to buy seperately.

This camera is AMAZING.

It's my first SLR type camera and so far it has completely blown me away. My friend is a bit of a camera fanatic and he was very impressed by what this could do.

Is this the one that was on the gadget show on Saturday morning?

Must not buy.

Did they have this on the gadget show recently? Not that I take their reviews seriously or anything...

Yes it was on the Gadget show. It was the NEX-5

You don't need to know anything about photography to use one of these.
