Re: Should I buy the NEX-5N or 5R?

I was in the same boat till couple of weeks back, then I decided to go for the 5N with double kit zoom (18-55, 55-210) for CHF 800, all inclusive. I remembered the saying "A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush"

Just consider this scenario - you wait for the 5R/ 6, and they are not overwhelmingly better than the 5N. But by then, 5N would most likely to be sold out/ withdrawn. You would have to pay a much higher price for a similar performing cam. The other way around - if the 5R/6 is a lot better, you can get the body at a later point.

Bottom line, I got my 5N with double zoom, and with the extra 200 I had initially planned for 6, got 4 Canon FD lenses off bay (50 mm 1.4, 50mm 1.8, 35-105, 70-210)
