DerDer: what is a "stacked" sensor and what is the benefit? Maybe they should mention that.

The Exmor RS stacked CMOS is what is used in smartphone cameras like the newer iPhone and Galaxy S lines. This is the first time it's been used in a standalone camera.

Is this what camera previews have become - camera companies giving out free vacations to reviewers? Olympus gives out free trips to Ireland and Bermuda, and now Samsung gives out Hawaii trips.

Certainly these cameras can be reviewed competently by just giving loaner review copies, but perks like these just smell like desperate attempts to influence reviewers.

The good news is, it costs the same as the D7100, so if you're the type that likes to pay more and get less, this is an outstanding choice.

Why the $100 price increase over the D5300? Must be the strong yen. Oh wait, never mind.

Is the touchscreen capacitive or resistive? All of the touchscreens in the NEX-5 series since the 5N have been dealbreakers for me.
