Sony Alpha NEX-5R Digital Camera Review
While this inexpensive mirrorless is marketed as entry-level, performance and image quality are anything but.
Representing some of the finest mirrorless system cameras on the market, Sony's NEX series is defined by thin bodies, oversized mounts, and a... "growing" lens selection. Earlier this year, the company decided to complicate their lineup with a few new options, including the NEX-6 and, today's review, the NEX-5R, which replaces the 5N as the "value" model.
While the 5R isn't equipped with some of the features found on more expensive NEX cameras, like a viewfinder or dual command dials, the most important feature has been carried over. No, we're not talking about the 5R's new installable apps, but rather image quality.
The Sony Alpha NEX-5R is available in black, silver, or white, and sold body-only for $650, or bundled with the 18-55mm kit lens for $750.
