As note below, the size and weight increase is not insignificant. The only real addition is the built in flash which with the high ISO capability of NEX , I will rarely use anyway

not worth it in my opinion.

Sadly 5N successor will most likely also have the same increase in bulk and weight

This is a step back for the NEX series after all the most important reason to go mirrorless is light weight
