I confess to not knowing a lot about this camera or the system before I bought the camera, but it appears that there are many lenses for the Nex. And, Sony has made a point of stating that they have made the specifications of their mount available to Sigma, Tamron, and other third party manufacturers, unlike some other major camera makers, humm, humm.

As for the viewfinder, it appears to work pretty well. It is "eye" activated which means that it only kicks in when you put your eye up to it, so there is a little bit of a lag.

I'm actually out of town giving this new puppy a workout at an event and hope to have some meaningful comments next week. In the meantime, I wouldn't abandon your favorite squeeze just yet. So far, I would say that I think that it's better than any of the non Nikon cameras that I have tried to date, but it will not replace my D3s.

I will try to post a couple of shots as an edit to this post.
