Re: Nex-5N .... comments from a D700 user

Well with a d-SLR I'm used to quick-manual selection of my focus points with a separate thumb button used for focusing (af-on) (I never have focusing linked to my release shutter button)

With the Nex-5 I have to rely on the auto-focus or the thing where you tap on the screen and hope it picks up the correct focus area. I was going to buy the electronic viewfinder but I didn't cuz I don't know if it lets me have focus points like the viewfinder of a d-SLR. I much much much prefer focusing on my D700 but then again, it's another tradeoff I'm willing to accept ... if I really need the D700's focusing for an event, I'll just bring the D700
