I have owned a 5R and know what superb IQ you can get from an NEX, however, to be 100% impartial and analytical...

2. The NEX suffers a problem that I as a UX (user experience) guy spotted right away, and that is that it is not an accessible camera, even the 6/7, despite more knobs, are not. Rather than two labelled tactile foolproof dials, such as on a typical Canon, Nikon or Sony full size DSLR, the NEX rely on a fiddly rear dial (that doubles as a flash etc selector) not to mention a nightmare of a menu interface. And further, the smallish buttons and controls are not suited to larger hands.

I agree 100%. The mere fact that you can't make the topmost "Soft Key" act as the AEL is an astounding oversight to me. I wonder if anyone on the UI design team has ever even used a camera. And the "Fn" button... don't get me started.

The 5R body shape, size, build quality and feel are all excellent. The UI design sucks.
