Just got my 5N. first shot and some thoughts

Ok. NEX 5n Arrived today with the 18-55 OSS lens.

Background. I own a 5d3, and some high quality fast primes and zooms. Shoot family, birds, and landscape, and macro. I guess a bit of everything. also have a panasonic LX5 which is a nice point and shoot, and small. but wanted something that produces a little cleaner files, yet portable.
So far, things I love about it.
1. Size. 2. Sensor.
Things I really dont care for
18-55 lens has a fair bit of distortion.
Lack of EVF, OVF (which I knew about)
No auto iso in M mode. I am back to the awkwardness of my autoiso on my 5d2.
Battery life is short. esp since you are using live view so much.
The zoom turns the wrong way (opposite of canon)
I wish there was one more customizable button there.
Here is my first posted shot. 3 shot panorama.

more to come. I am now debating between sigma 30 2.8, or sony 50 1.8. I love the size of sigma, and of course its cheaper. the sony is a fair bit faster and has IS.
