NEX-5N acquisition
Dec 17, 2011

For those interested in the Sony NEX-5N, I purchased one recently to either replace or compliment my LX5, as a lightweight carry-everywhere ILC with SLR quality. I looked hard at the Nikon V1, Olympus PEN models, Panasonic mirrorless and the Fuji X10. I decided on the NEX-5N for pretty much 4 reasons:

  • Stellar IQ

  • Great ISO performance

  • Shallow depth of field

  • Better dynamic range

A few other advantages, such as swivel / touchscreen LCD, in-body image stabilization, in-camera HDR (works great), panorama sweep and 3D modes. These were major factors that worked in NEX-5N's favor as opposed to the other mirrorless camera models.

Here's a recent post with my first NEX-5N shots:
