Here's a pic I took of some stuff I got from the farmer's market with my Sony Nex 3 Alpha (red) with a pancake lens.
Picture quality is fantastic and on par with a DSLR without the bulk. Body is well-constructed and durable. Do yourself a favor and get yourself a $2 lens cap keeper though, so you can easily pop the cap on and off without worrying about losing it constantly.
I love the camera. I paid $400 for it new, and think this is a pretty good deal. The body and pancake lens are slim enough together that I can toss the camera in my purse or messenger bag and bring it with me everywhere.
The camera OS is quick to respond, and there are modes that let you continuously shoot. Also fun in panorama mode - shutter is a little noisy though, so stealth pictures are tough; tl:dr: not ideal for panoramas in a library. I've used it to record short videos for YouTube, too, and it's performed admirably.
Some beef short ribs I was working on. Apologies in advance if I break some tables.
