NEX-5N for recreational photography - old D-SLR user

Hello NEX users

I used to own a Pentax K10D. I was pretty happy with it, taking amateur photos of, well, everything I could. Mostly using auto mode, switching to manual (or one of the other modes) for adjustments when the situation demanded it.

Unfortunately some !@#$%^ decided I shouldn't own it anymore and stole it.

Been filling the gap with half-decent phones (Galaxy S2 atm), but I miss being able to take proper photographs under any conditions.

Enough babbling though. What I wanted to ask NEX-5N users who've owned (or still own) a D-SLR as well is:

am I going to enjoy this one or will I regret not going for, say, a D5100 that sells for around the same price?

everything I've read says this is a wonderful camera (sans the lack of a viewfinder, which I hope to get used to). am I missing something?
