I just did the price break down

NEx 5n with kit lens: $699
Sony 55-210 lens: $349
Sony 16mm F2.8 lens: $229
Viewfinder: $349

= $1626 USD

Isn't that a bit inflated? You don't have to exactly match the zoom range - 27-83 (Sony) is not that different from 28-112 (Canon). OTOH, if you include the 55-210 in the Sony kit, that would give NEX a huge advantage in reach. Likewise, f2.8 at 28mm is better than 3.5, but won't give you a huge advantage for low light shooting, the way a 1.7 or 2.0 lens would.

Same for the viewfinder - both cameras can be used using just the LCD screens, but Sony's EVF has important advantages (100% coverage, very high resolution, no parallax error, information display).
