Really I'm actually 15 minutes away from westchester county =) but none the less thanks for the warm welcome.Jason, welcome from a native New Yorker, albeit one who lives out in Westchester County - but not far from you! Fear not, we are a very eclectic group with a range of experience and I also think we're a pretty congenial group. Thanks so much for taking the time to introduce yourself!
As luck would have it, there are quite a few NEX shooters on Serious Compacts, so you should feel right at home.
Thanks Fiddler for the welcome as well and I'm open to all cameras but for my first purchase in this range comes a NEX camera and who knows maybe even an Olympus or LeicaWelcome Jason, and Hello from Scotland. Can't comment on the Nex cams, but there's people here who can.
