Canon D5100 or NEX5n?

Hi All

Anyone faced this dilemma - choice between 5100 or Sony NEX5n. Which one would you go for and why. I already have full FX Nikon kit so want something smaller, lightweight and great IQ. Have budget that will allow Nikon 5100- 18-55 and 50-200 or with Sony, the 16mm and 18-55 kits lens with 50-210mm later.

Both work out around same price

Thanks, just want some advice or other matters to think about which I may have not done so. Ultimately lightweight stuff needed. Thought of 18-200 with 5100 but heavy and takes me out of budget range
