One thing you're going to find with the 5R is that you only have the back screen to view your pictures.  I'm waiting for the EVF kit (just under $300) because in brighter light the screen becomes totally useless.  It's frustrating to want a shot and not be able to see anything.  The EVF is one advantage the more expensive Nex's have.

I find the screen is perfectly visible when set to "Sunny Weather" brightness. This does drain the battery faster, however.

I've had it on maximum brightness and couldn't see a thing, regardless of which way  I tried to shoot.  Snow and a bright day may be something you never get where you live.  Battery life isn't a concern since I have 3 batteries.

Grant.

I have a pop-up screen shade which helps out a lot.
