just wanted to give everyone my 2 cents, I loved the 5N that I got 4 months ago. once I heard about the 5R with some new features, i couldn't wait to try it. after getting it, this is what I have discovered. 1. the LCD is not the same, 5N is a capacitive touch screen (like iPhone), but 5R is a resistive. 2. the Camera sensor is different as well. i took pix with 5N and 5R side by side, with exact same settings, the 5N is more vivid in color, and 5R is a shade washed out. 3. when u have 5N set on single shot drive w/ 2 second review, at any time if you press the shutter, the review will stop, and allow you to take the next shot. but not with the 5N, you actually have to wait for the review to end, before you can take the next image.4. 5N has the auto brightness setting for the LCD, but with 5R its all manual.
so far that's what I have found, its very disappointing to find a newer model and more expensive model, loss some of the very basic setting. Kinda sad!
