What's the reasoning behind an upgrade from a 5N to a 5R?

If you're gonna waste money, might as well get good glass.

Are you serious? Answer: Lotsa.

The only reason you have mentioned is...

"I'm thrilled about the USB charging option now " and "WiFi"

Besides that is the limited PDAF worth $300?

Are there any reliable reviews on the benefits of PDAF on the sensor?

Just the tip of the iceberg. Also additional control dial, better low-light sensitivity, better firmware/menus, and a few dozen more improvements.

1) Control dial just mimicks rear wheel. So it's not an improvement.

2) It's low-light sensitivity is actually worse than 5N. Sony managed to make APS-C sized camera that is just on par with m43.

3) Better for what? Still 0.7 stops HDR bracketing?
