The Sony NEX-5N is the update to one of Sony's first NEX cameras, the NEX-5. At first glance the camera does not seem much different from its predecessor, but (figuratively) look under the hood... Read more…

The user interface won't be to everyone's taste, and the body feels almost too small for the typical E-mount zoom lenses
