Why no love for the NEX-7? High ISO isn't quite as good as the 5n, but it's got nearly a stop better dynamic range. Plus, you'll get a built-in EVF and the manual controls you're used to (the latter of which is lacking on both the 5n and 6). The 5n is definitely a great camera, and used prices are so low right now that it almost doesn't make any sense not to buy one. But $840 on Amazon Warehouse Deals for a NEX-7/18-55 kit is certainly eye-catching as well.

And then there's the current king of the APS-C hill, the Pentax K-5 II, which has even better DR (and better high ISO performance than any of the NEX cameras). Your lens options would diminish quite a bit, though.

One thing about the mirrorless world so far: bodies retain their value even less than DSLRs. If you buy legacy glass, though, you've got pretty much nowhere to go but up.
