Real world difference betwen NEX7 and 5N
Oct 2, 2012

I got the NEX 7 about a week a go, but returned it when I saw that the NEX 5N was on sale for about half the price I paid for the NEX7. I snapped a few shots with my 16 mm to see if I could see the purple fringing, I did, but noticed it almost exclusively wide open, stopped down it disappeared (as did the CA, which was REALLY bad wide open)

Anyway, I took a few closeups of some artwork with both the 7 and the 5N, and I must say the quality differences is quite large, in favor of the NEX 7. I didn't expect it to be that much. These are both shot at f/5.0, 1/30 and ISO 200.
with the 16 mm. Guess which is which?
