I don't know what you mean by "Magazine-style," but here are some pics with the SEL1855 I took in the earlier days of my NEX ownership.

Thanx! I just got 5N last week. Did you use any filters?

Not in these shots. I normally keep a protective filter on the lens, and switch to polarizer or ND filter when necessary. There is no point to using a color/warming/etc. filter in the age of digital.

Here's a good sized gallery of images I took on a recent trip to Mexico City. All were shot with the 5N and kit 18-55. I'm certainly an amateur, but there are a wide range of shots there, and I think some of them are pretty good at revealing the capability of the gear.

Thanks. I shoot mostly in P mode, but often use HDR if it's a contrasty scene, or HHT for low light shots. PP in PS.

Any movies? By the way, why when i shot movie, it freezed in many places? Maybe memory card? im using memory stick pro duo 4gb. Everytime i start the camera i get the message on the screen: This memory card may not be capable of recording and playing normally.

I did shoot some movies, but none are posted. Use a MS Pro-HG Duo 8Gb SD. Not having freezing problems. Haven't seen that message. I would try formatting it, and if that doesn't solve it contact Sony support.

Only a little USM after I reduced its size. The same with all 3.

Unsharp mask - it's a form of sharpening the image. I use a little bit when I downsize an image because they usually lose a bit of sharpness in the process.
