    A very enticing camera, I must say. Glad to know B&H has it.:2thumbs:

    They certainly do not have it according to their site at present - availability unknown. I wonder if web gargoyles were having some fun...

    Well that didn't last long!

    It was in stock though. Our B&H rep emailed me specifically to tell me that they had a small shipment in, and it was listed as "In Stock" when I made the post (and shortly after that).

    I refuse to look at this thread ... I refuse to ... oh ... too late.

    BH states "new item" and something about unkown arrival date.

    I gifted my NEX3 to a buddy as his wedding gift. But I kept the 16mm. It's a decent lens, and often maligned by some because Sony failed to release a fast prime when the NEX3/5 were first released.

    Here's a portrait with the 16mm (on the NEX3) at ISO3200. Pleasant results other than a wide angle is not ideal for a portrait (stretched my GF's face).

  9. I know exactly what you are saying. I'm the same. been mizzling about the K-5 for ages, and I have 6 lenses as well, I could do a lot with that money. Then, I go off and use it for a few days and love it all over again. I think my camera usage is a mood thing. "Oh dear, what shall I take today... hmmm..."

    Nex7 sounds great, looks great, but I think sizewise I am happy with the K-5 and lightweight DA and FA primes. So stop right there. You dont need it!!! (Talking to myself as much as you)

    NEX 7 looks interesting. Samsung pancakes look interesting. Ricoh GXR is the best compact solution for M-lenses. The waiting for the Fuji system continues.:smile:

    Hey Stanleyk. I see you live in Taylor. I used to deliver to Taylor every day when I worked for Con-Way freight company out of Austin about ten years ago. Do they still have that big picture frame company there? The best bar-b-que I ever ate came from Taylor. I bet you never ate at that little grocery store over by the grain elevator where the owner raises his own cows and bar-b-ques brisket right outside the store. I think it's on Walnut street.
