I will hang on to my NEX-5N as long as it lives ... I wish I had enough to buy a second body now too.

I kind of expected what you have described from your impressions. The 5R sounded good on a spec sheet, but the touchscreen, the randomly added buttons with no direct customization in the UI, and the other quirks make it a total turn off. If I were you, I'd return the 5R, and buy a 5N from Amazon for $500 now ... then spend the extra bit on lenses
