Should I buy NEX-5N or wait for NEX-F5?

Wait... here's why...

A new 5 series model is due pretty soon now.

If you wait for it to be announced, the current model will go on some good sales. Then you have a choice to either buy the 5n at a nice discount, or choose to buy the new model because you prefer its features and advancements.

If a new model announcement was 4+ months away, I would say buy now. But in this situation I think it's worth it to wait a little.

I tend to buy things at the beginning of their life cycle. That way I always avoid the "damn, wish I waited a little bit" blues. For example, I recently bought a NEX F3 and RX100. I love them both. And it will be a long time (probably a year) before they are replaced with new models.
