NEX-5n vs NEX-7: life expectancy?
Oct 24, 2011


I am in the process of deciding whether to get a NEX-5n or a NEX-7, and although I am leaning towards the 5n I cant rule out the 7 just yet.

The choice at the moment is basically decided on the price: I can afford a 7, but that would set me back a bit more than Id like. So, to try to decided this once and for all, I would like to hear you guys opinion.
The facts:

  • The 7 probably has features I wont use for some time (ie hotshoe)

  • The 5n has touch screen focus, for which I care not

  • 7 has EVF and built in flash

  • More pixels on the 7. Leaves more room for improving my skills and using photos for other media

  • More physical controls on the 7, a feature I like a lot.

  • Black kit lens on 7. Enough said.

Not very compelling arguments for the 7, but I would still like some input
