I have both the Nex 5N and Nex 5R

When I moved to the 5R My feeling is that the IQ is not as good as in the 5N.

Doss anyone feel the same or is it just me ???


5N jpeg output is clearly superior to rest two...starting from iso1600 and 3200, there's a clear IQ difference....5R & 6 smears fine detail, espescially fine detail of people hair, eyelashes are all gone at iso3200 on 5R&6...but 5N clearly holds raw, i couldn't see such difference, but jpeg output is far superior on 5N...however, as i check dpreview 6 & 5N raw comparison tool, i clearly see that 5N is superior at raw too...

On the other, PDAF on 5R&6 is a total gimmick... never had any advantage of PDAF on my casuaul shooting conditions...i sold the 5R and now 6 is on the sale list..i'm getting a second 5N as spare before it's disappeared

All my own testing give me the same results than you have.........

Go to imaging resource and with the comparometer you can compare N and R..........
