I Might Trade-In My NEX-5N - Help!

I'm thinking of trading in/selling my NEX-5N for either a Canon 60D or a Sony a65. What do you think?

I'm doing around 70 per cent video and 30 per cent photo. All non-professional. Entry-level user.

I like the 5N, I really do. It's easy to use, but still very powerful. Great image/video quality. Lightweight and relatively small form factor.

Thing is, I have huge hands, and I just don't feel comfortable gripping this tiny camera. I tried a 60D in the store and it felt worlds better in the hand (much heavier though).

The lack of current lens selection is frustrating, and I just don't see a proper upgrade path with the 5N (pricey proprietary accessories) vs. 60D/a65 with more traditional DSLR ergonomics and worlds of third party lenses/accessories.

Thoughts? Comments? Experiences with either the 60D or the a65?

Many thanks!
