Just received the EVF for the new-5N. As a Nikon DSLR D90 user I was disappointed with the Nex-5N. Could not get used to the LCD. Went to the lakefront with the EVF and now I love the camera. Great shots and easy to carry on the bike ! Only question is whether it's worth spending the NEX-5N plus the EVF vs the Nex-7.

I can tell you the 5n with the EVF has a HUGE advantage over the NEX 7 ... and that is the EVF on the NEX 5n can be articulated for low shots or strange angled shots. For me, this is one of the reasons I bought the 5n.

Yes, the 7 has better resolution, yes the 7 has tri nav, but the articulating EVF is a major plus for me.

Yes, I know the Sony EVF is expensive as heck, feels cheap, but it works and works well IMHO.
