Which to keep...? (NEX-5N vs. NEX-6)
Mar 1, 2014

So I recently bought a NEX-6 just because it was cheap, couldn't really resist the price tag of $399.99 open box (practically new) at Best Buy. I already have the NEX-5N I bought roughly 1 1/2 year or so (bought it back in December of 2012 for $700.

The positives of the NEX-6 to me is the EVF, Wi-Fi, and the dial. NEX-5N has the touch screen for tap to focus/tracking.

My usage is just mainly street and travel photos. The only lens I have addition to the kit lens (16-50 for NEX-6 and 18-55 for NEX-5N) is the 55-210mm lens. I don't know if I should sell the old one to help pay for the NEX-6 or just return it. Or just keep both, 5N as my back up camera.
