Sony NEX-5N Digital Camera Review
Sony's NEX-5N packs high end performance in a small body.
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 and you'll realize the NEX-5N is a different beast entirely. The new sensor in the 5N puts it squarely next to midrange DSLRs like the Nikon D5100 and Canon T3i, with a smaller body and significantly faster shot-to-shot time. Sony has also added touchscreen functionality to their rear, articulated LCD. Add it all up and the Sony NEX-5N is one of the most intriguing cameras on the market today. It's available in black, silver, and red with the 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 kit lens.
