I own two top Nikon DSLRs, the Nikon D7000 & D800. The NEX-5N competes on an equal basis with the D7000 and admirably up against the D800 if large prints are not your goal. Really sharp photos can be had easily with this camera. I love its light weight & VR. I highly recommend this camera.
I just got it for less than three weeks and pictures were really amazing.
The high ISO performance is outstanding, especially in this price range. The 10 eps is almost comical it's so fast and it works flawlessly... one RAW/on Jpeg at 10 eps! Fastest shooting camera I've ever had! I had the 3c version but the 5n is so much better it's hard to talk about it! I have the Sony 18-200mm zoom and I just don't ever take it off... I did order a lens adapter for Canon lenses so I will play with that a little... I have several very wide angle lenses I'd like to try with the 5n and see how it works! All in all, one of the best and most fun cameras I've acquired in years! Build quality is excellent and I haven't had any problems at all with it, in any manner. It's fast, works as promised, and delivers outstanding image quality.
Great little camera and the image quality is better than any of the other mirrorless cameras I have tried. Close to and better in some ways than my E5.
I traded the already great NEX5 for the newer NEX 5N, and it was TOTALLY WORTH IT! the added controls like manual video, and touch screen add a whole new layer of usability. What was already a great camera just got better!
