Pros It has great video but also great low light picture taking. The APS-C sensor really does well in low light.
Cons Menus take getting used to
Summary In her review she claims that there is equal if not better performance from cheaper cameras. I could not disagree more, although this isn't the same image quality as my girlfriends 7D it still comes REALLY close and with a good lens, possible a Lecia with a lens adapter this could be a great camera for the avid SLR user on vacation.
Pros APS-C sensor. Light and small but functional.
Cons Touch screen is not so sensitive as you hope.
Pros FANTASTIC image quality and low-light performance. Small, light, yet remarkably durable thanks to an alloy body. Easy to handle. Excellent quality rear screen. A++
Cons Lack of lenses. I keep my Zeiss 24 on there ALL the time. I returned the Sony-branded zoom. There was just no comparison. Eagerly awaiting more Zeiss glass(Im looking at YOU portrait lens!)
Summary If you've ever found yourself annoyed at having to hit the live view button all the time, and railed at having to tote around pounds of camera just to get a quality image then search no more! The 5n (with the ESSENTIAL Zeiss 24mm) is my favorite camera. If your nuts for zooms or viewfinders then there is a world of cameras out there you might like better. I wouldn't fret too much about the 5n vs. the 7. The 7 is bigger and noisier. The manual functionality is seamless on the 5n. It just takes a few minutes to get used to spending half a second pressing down to swap between F/stop and shutter. I put ISO on a quick button and im out the door!
Pros IQ, Versatility, APS-C sensor all in its compact glory
Cons No audio inputs, the lack of physical dials and buttons
Summary I have to disagree as well. In regards to the sensor, the NEX-5N is in the same league as the Nikon D7000, Pentax K-5 (same APS-C 16.1 megapixel senor by Sony) The GF3 on the other hand is a 4/3 sensor. Much smaller, meaning less dynamic range and low light capabilities. It might as well be a good camera in its class but it's no better performer in IQ wise compared to the NEX-5N.
