Get the 5N.

The difference between 5N and 5R is minimal, almost all the new features are gimmicks excluding control dial and Phase detection Auto-focus (which you don't need because you don't capture moving subjects).

The 5N's sensor is one of the best in it's price level, very good high ISO performance, which even trumps the NEX-6 by a little bit.

Get the 5N and spend the rest of the money on lens.
