I have a NEX 5N with the kit lens. No plans to buy additional lenses, since for the most part, it satisfies my needs (family pics and travel). Cannot justify purchase of long/wide/macro lenses, for they will see very little use.
The 5N is exelent, except for its size.

Any of you thinking of replacing your 5N with RX100, from what you've seen so far, IQ wise? Wouldn't it be redundant to keep both?
Thank you.

I've thought about the RX100 and at the end of the day, I'd rather use a 5n or C3 with a tiny rangefinder lens like the Voigtlander 35mm f2.5 Skopar. That's small enough for me--I hate cheapy plastic powerzooms that extend on powerup.

This is pretty darn small--even with the stupid step up ring I have attached. Much better than RX100 imo because I still have my flip up lcd screen and a better sensor. No way I can live without flip screen.
