Well, maybe it is the issue that in contrast to previous model cycles, the 5R fails to provide improved image quality.

Nex 5 to 5N has an increase in resolution 14-16 Mpx and at the same time better IQ.

Nex 5N to 5R is about the same.

So the 5R offers PDAF, but only for selected lenses and mostly of use in video.

It offers Wifi, but appears to be of lower build quality.

This makes the discounted 5N a bargain for those who want the IQ but can skip the extra features of the 5R.
