Should I buy the 5N or wait for the 7?

Re: Should I buy the 5N or wait for the 7?

It's a tough call. If you don't have anything specific to shoot or upcoming travel, I'd lean toward waiting. But the 5N kicks ass! It's a great little camera and extremely capable.

I don't think in 'real world' image, you'll be able to see much of a difference between the 7 and 5N. I think the tri-nav and built-in finder and hot shoe, are key feautres that the 5N lack. But the 5N is smaller and the optional finder can be swiveled up, that's very handy.

I don't regret getting a 5N. It's really terrific!
