The new NEX 3 N at the same price is a very formidable competitor.
The NEX 3 F is discontinued.

This is a very nice little camera but it is priced $100 too high so it does not fare as well in comparisons.  The problem I have with the Sony and it’s APS sensor are the lenses needed for it are not well matched in size to the body.  The Nikon 1’s with the one inch sensor are much more portable.

Have a look at the size of the new Sony NEX 3N and its new zoom lens for size and weight.

I tried the NEX 3 F for a few days the specs look good on paper.  The glare on screen in even partial shade was bad.  That why I think the NEX 6 is so popular because of the viewfinder.  I tried N1 cameras and so far better outside.  I not fan of powerzoom lens as the primary shooting lens.  Different strokes for different folks.

The NEX 3 N is not the NEX 3 F…..
Don’t confuse the two…

Have you seen the size of the Sony 55-210mm lens compared to the Nikon 30-110mm?  Portability wise, the Nikon wins.  Hopefully Sony can shrink the longer zooms like they did with the 16-50mm.

This camera has the same size sensor as the Sony RX100, but it has half the number of pixels, so each of its pixels must be twice as big as those of the Sony.

So why is there more noise in the Nikon’s raw images than in the Sony’s.

I agree with mr.vasquez, nikon s9200 is better than nikon j1 and s1. And yes…colonel mc laden purchased s9200 on ebay about a couple of months ago

This is a fantastic camera. I’ve had it now for about 3 years and it’s helped to produce almost all of the photos on my website - I’m actually looking to replace this camera now but it’ll take a lot to fill the void. If you’re thinking of investing in this camera, do it.
