nex-5n OR nex-f3? Which to buy?

nex-5n OR nex-f3? Which to buy?

hi guys..

having trouble deciding between the older nex 5n which has since been superseded by the nex 5r OR the newer nex-f3?

Nex 5n is currently $631 VS Nex f3
Both come with the 18-55mm+16mm Lens Kit
ie: $43 more expensive which is negligible.

Which would you choose and why?..i know this was sort of asked previously, but wanting more discussion!

Not bothering with the 5r as I only want to spend around $600 and dont mind the older 5n..

As far as i can see
same sensor
f3 has more angles on the screen
f3 has built in flash
f3 slightly cheaper
f3 slower focus vs 5n
5n has touch screen
5n shoots faster 10fps vs 2.5
5n thinner and lighter
5n higher iso
5n supposedly better build quality..

Leaning towards the 5n...

and also commentary on any lens reccomendations!
