This year has offered a lot of new cameras for photo enthusiasts. One of my favorites -- the new Sony NEX-7 packs great image quality in a package far smaller than the typical DSLR. Even with the mondo 18-200 lens, I was able to take this on a ski trip that I would not have brought a full size camera. I came back with a lot of stunning sharp 24 megapixel images. This is one of my favorites.
