On the sony home page the NEX5R is exactly the same as the NEX5N other than for wi-fi and screen that might be veiwed from the front.Are there no other differences? :roll:

The NEX-F3 only the screen has changed?

NEX5N 400€
NEX5R 500€
NEXF3 530€
NEX-6 660€ Body only
Prices with old 18/55mm zoom Add 100€ extra for the amazingly bad 16/50mm

The NEX-7 body is at the moment 820€ all ofers i found with a lens start at 1199€(Just saw NEX-7 with 18/55mm black for 840€)

It seems ill have to wait a bit longer for either wi-fi or finder

The 5R also has phase-detection AF sensors built onto the imaging sensor, to improve focus tracking performance...the 5N does not. There are some slight body design changes, as well as the afformentioned wifi. And don't forget that the main reason the 5N is cheaper than the 5R is because the 5N is over a year old, and soon to phase out, with the 5R being the technical replacement for it. The 5N was immensely popular and one of the best reviewed NEX cameras, so they haven't pulled the plug on selling them yet, but soon will as newer models keep coming out - the 5R was released much more recently, and so the price stays a little higher.

I didnt see that :oops: .But the focus on the 5N isnt to bad.Hunts a bit when i use the 30mm lens.
Im really happy with my 5N since i bought the voigtlander lens.I would like to have the new features of the 5R but cant justify the cost when i have the 5N. If it was my first NEX id but the 5R :roll: possiably

I am disapointed with the NEX-6, I HOPE the NEX-7 comes down in price,it was never very popular,was it?For 500€ more or less id buy the NEX-7 just to have the veiwfinder to ease focusing with my Nikon lens.
Not to mention 24 megpix for low light?Why do more pix help in low light and not bright light(as i read hear somewhere)

The NEX dedicated lenses dont seem all that good,but priced a bit high??Of course the 18/55mm and 30mm are exceptions the 30mm is quite good even with focus problems which is better manual focused,therefor the MicroNikkor 55mm macro which is very very good is better value at around 60€ on ebay

I really hope the NEX-7 comes down in price or sony make a NEX-6N with removable battery & 24.5meg pix :shock:
