After read two tons of reviews, and similar videos on youtube, and finnaly prove for myself the excelent overal quality of this camera ,clearly this is the best choice of compact system camera to date. Period. Put an 35mm or 50mm f1.4 on it, and you have the power only see in +2000$ BigBoys DSRls.

Thats right!
Macro performance using the 18-55mm kit lens is excellent, with the NEX-5N quickly finding a focus point and setting a shallow depth of field, throwing everything outside of this tight area into blur and giving our backgrounds an attractive bokeh effect.
