Honestly I'm not sure why people still worry about the 5n clicking issue for video.  I have a 6 now, but I had a 5n before, and I sent it in, and had it back in a week.  Sony paid for overnight shipping both ways (sent it on a Monday, they fixed it on Wednesday and I had it back Friday).  Couldn't have been easier, and it no longer clicked.

Yeah, it's a bit annoying to be without it for a week.  But Sony appears to still be fixing the click even on out of warranty 5n units.  If I wanted a 5n right now, the click would honestly not be a factor.

That said, I'm not aware of any click problems on the newer NEX models at all.
