Re: Buying a 5r or a 5n?

I bought the 5n 2 months back when the 5r was 750 and the 6 was 1000. I wanted to get the "nex" experience; to wait and see if Sony gets some of the rough edges around the system corrected. They still don't have the G zoom lenses, which is one major drawback, and comments from early buyers don't indicate that Sony is taking maximum advantage of the additional control buttons and rollers that both new cameras offer. I don't regret buying the 5n at all, it is my camera to grab for walk around shooting.,
