Re: Considering NEX-5n... What Accessories/Lens Should I Get With It?

Let me suggest a different approach that is close to the cost you are thinking of spending, at least over time. The 5N is $478 but with the standard kit lens. Add to that the cost of the EVF and now you are at about $800. The NEX 6 is $1000 and has well over $200 worth of built in features. The 16-50 power zoom that comes with the 6 is certainly worth that extra $200.

I had the NEX 7 and after 3 months or so I sold it. Prior to buying it I had the NEX 3, then bought the 5N and when the 7 came out bought that. I found the 16MP sensor on the 5N to meet my needs far better than the 7. Now along comes the NEX 6 with that 16MP sensor and some other very nice features NOT found on the 5N. I am hoping that the phase detection AF will work, but even if it is less than hoped for, I never found the 5N to be sluggish. I am seriously weighing getting taht 6 myself but want to see more users comments before I jump in.
