You are comparing to an obsolete, out-of-production camera, the NEX 5N.  What can I say?  The NEX-5R and the 6 have updated features and performance.  The base ISO is now 100.

No the 3N is an extremely new Sony release.  However no touch screen.  Base ISO 200.  And a low resolution screen (which matches the E-PM2/PL5 of Olympuses but are half the resolution or so of the 5 series and above).

It also has artificially limited 2.5 FPS burst, and it has an artificial shutter noise to boot.  Also USB cable in-body charging.  Sony 5 series is a pretty sweet spot in price performance.  The 3N will sell for its 16-50 lens!

Very unfortunate that besides the NEX6 which I think the missing touchscreen is a glaring deficit, only the 3N gets the 16-50 so far.

You didn't mention the 5R which has a touchscreen, but no EVF. 10 fps burst speed. Real shutter plus electronic first curtain shutter. WiFi, downloadable apps.

The 3eN's resolution is only one notch lower than the 5R and 6, and beats E-PM2/PL5's score.
