Our lass has registered an interest in a high quality point and shoot for her birthday. She wants to take great shots, but can't be arsed to learn to use, nor lug around, a DSLR. I bought her a 10D 'to learn on' three years ago and it ended up being used as a backup camera by yours truly. The Sony NEX5 has caught my eye as it appears to be well regarded and has interchangeable lenses: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-NEX5KB...1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1334764485&sr=1-1 Does anyone have any experience of this, or other recommendations? A few people are clubbing in so we have a reasonable budget, £500 give or take a few shillings. PS just realise this SEB thread: http://www.readytogo.net/smb/showthread.php?t=692842 Would still be interested in views of the Sony NEX like.
