I would not put to much into 3d, I check out sony's 3d blueray and 3d HDTV, and it is not impressive yet. There were sharpness issues, and blurring at time. To new, more of a novality then useful right now. It should get better in the next couple of gen of 3D.

The NEX imager is nice. I was impressive with it when I was playing around with it in the store.

I've 3D glasses (active & passive), a 40" Samsung FullHD 3D TV (it was cheaper than my 32" HDready two years ago :-[ ) and a Zalman 3D monitor ... IT REALLY MAKES FUN!

Last weekend I converted Monsters/Aliens & Meatball 3D BluRays to files for looking without 3D BluRay player (I do not buy one!) ... it works fine.

My main ambition is to look OWN 3D pictures and 3D videos .. very nice!

3D pictures produced with Lumix GH1, Canon 550D, Fuji W1 ... videos with Fuji W1, two Canon IXUS100 (1280x720) ...

I was so excited when they announce 3d blueray, that I was ready to get the whole 3d package to go along with my 65 inch 3d ready HD TV. But I just got disappointed. The technologies is still in it's infancy.
