Re: NEX-5N or SX50? What would you do?

The key to making the most of the NEX is to use a Prime lens and crop - I have an unusally good sample of the 16mm and on the NEX5 the cam is pocket sized, even on a NEX7 it`s not big and you get loadsa cropping space there

The big NEX issue is that there aren`t any reasonably compact decent zooms whatsoever, the 18-55 and 55-210 are poor to lukewarm at best - the best one is the colossal Original model of Sony 18-200 - Sad when the best zoom for a system is a superzoom but the rest of the Mirrorless brigade are no better off apart from ONE hyper expensive M43 lens .
