Sony Alpha NEX-5K with 18-55mm lens

 

small camera, but very good quality prints.

the panarama is fun, but often there are marks across it. Takes a while to move through all the different menus and there's a few features that won't work in conjunction with other features.

Menu very frustrating. I keep getting "this function is currently disabled" Battery life is poor. Play back menu confusing when going from stills to video I personally miss a viewfinder. Start up time is slow. No touch screen capability .
