Which would you recommend for my trip: nex 5n w/ 18-55 or canon S95?
Oct 25, 2011

Hi all,

I have a trip to New Zealand coming up next month where I am expecting to see a lot of great scenery. My Fuji F31fd, while serviceable, is getting long in the tooth, so I am looking to upgrade. I tried the nex 5n recently and was generally happy with the results, though it does take more effort to carry it than a compact. I'd like your opinion on which camera would give me the better results: a nex 5n with 18-55 kit lens (can't afford other lenses for now, and need zoom for versatility, better panoramas, etc.), or a premium compact like the S95? If I opt for the latter, I can maybe wait til the price of the nex 5n to drop before I get it. By then I can maybe get one with the video clicking issue fixed (though I barely ever shoot videos). I expect to shoot mostly landscapes in daylight, with the occasional indoor and night shots.

Any advice?
