OK, got a little extra cash to blow on a new toy and was going to order the Sony RX100 or NEX 5N.

Which should I go for?

I think many reviewers have stated (and I agree) that the RX100 has negated all entry-level mirrorless cameras if the only lens attached to it is the slow kit zoom.

One issue with the NEX series is that because it uses a full APS-C sensor, the lenses (either zoom or prime) tend to be really big relative to the camera body, negating most of the advantage of mirrorless to begin with (compact size with DSLR quality).

I'd give the RX100 a serious look.
