Well, as you may know, I've been playing around with various mirrorless bodies, ILCs, and compact DSLRs in search of a more portable two-body "system" to tote around on a daily basis. Today, I took my two-week old, Sony NEX-3N out for a spin . . . verdict: too slow! Wielding the NEX-3N today resulted in plenty of mis-focused, mis-framed, too-far-away shots I would've otherwise nailed with a DSLR: Sony NEX-3N + Sigma 60mm f/2.8 DN Sony NEX-3N + Sigma 60mm f/2.8 DN I know, at first I had initially gushed over the NEX-3N's "superior" AF speed vs. the Nikon Coolpix A's, but using the Sigma 60mm f/2.8 E-mount lens outdoors today, the NEX-3N hunted aimlessly, and seemed to take forever to lock focus. Also, a 90mm-equivalent is still too short for most of my "documentary" portraits. It seems that a bunch of (yet, undetermined) variables appear to be affecting both the NEX-3N's and Coolpix A's auto-focus performance, finally leaving me with the perception that the Coolpix A's auto-focus is somehow more "reliable." So, I think I've settled on a hybrid approach: an APS-C fixed-lens compact for "snapshots," and/or wide shots, and a smaller DSLR with a longer DX lens for "portraits." So, I just ordered the 127.5mm-equivalent, AF-S Nikkor 85mm f/1.8G (currently discounted by $100, representing a pretty good value at only $396.95). Although this will be my third Nikkor in this same focal length, the new, "plastic-ey" 85mm f/1.8G should fit nicely with the equally plastic-ey, refurbished D3200 I just picked up. But, this time, I'm liking the plastic-ey (read, lightweight) feel of both of these "lower-end" Nikon products. With my AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G mounted, the D3200 certainly "feels" much smaller and lighter than my D7000. Here's what I get optically: • Nikon Coolpix 'A' with 18.5mm fixed-lens: 28mm-equivalent @ f/2.8 [i.e., same speed as other DX/FX offerings]. • Nikon D3200 + AF-S Nikkor 85mm 'G': 127.5-equivalent @ f/1.8 [i.e., "super-fast," mid-tele; <$400].
