I think it speaks volumes that half of these cameras come equipped with a Sony-produced sensor

Even better than that, if this case is like the previous NEX cases Nauticam has produced, the portion of the housing that covers the lens is interchangeable as well. You're able to swap it with a case for wide angle and fisheye, or an adapter to attach Nikon "Nikonos" Under Water Lenses directly, which need no case. Check it out on their webpage when you visit, you may have to visit a page for an older case to see all the sample pics.

weixuan: Can I use the power zoom 16-50mm on first generation Nex-5?

Browsing Sony's website is often deceptive, I got worried cause I didn't see the 16-50 listed as compatible with anything but the 5R and the 6, but I noticed many other discrepancies and errors.

The head of digital imaging at my mall's Sony store said it should work fine, but they haven't been trained on them yet. I'm still waiting to hear back from the Sony representative for the Ritz I work at, since I'm sure he's actually had a chance to play around with it.

Jan Kritzinger: I don't understand people, if you want touch screen, get the 5R, if you want an EVF, get Nex 6... Jeez, it's not that hard!

I've been dying for a view finder. The only thing I use the touchscreen for on my 5N is to review pictures. Selecting the point it focuses to isn't a magical act (even on a smartphone) and won't truly focus to a specific quadrant or section of the screen, it's still just going to manipulate the lens to focus to the distance of the object chosen, and every object of similar distance. Most of the time I'm finding myself having to cancel auto-focus tracking after it engages from an accidental press on corner of the screen.

One thing I will question is why the menu is still set up with big chunky thumbnail pictures for each sub-menu if I can't press them? If I have to scroll anyway, why not give me tabs like an Alpha series menu?
