NEX-5R/L? NEX-5R kit with the 16-50mm pancake zoom? A lot more compact than the 18-55

Personally I think the 16mm prime pancake is too wide for everyday use, but it does make the camera very compact

Also, there is a small flash that comes with the NEX-5R. When I was ordering mine I didn't think it came with a flash and was trying to figure out how to juryrig my F56AM, but it does come with a small flash that works pretty well given it's size.

The 16-50mm zoom sounded like a perfect range, but I thought the reviews on that were pretty bad. Do you have it? How do you like it? If it's a good lens, it really would be perfect for me!I thought that was the perfect solution until I started reading about it. I'd love to hear from someone that has it.

I didn't realize that about the flash... is it just a pop-up (forward facing) flash, or can it rotate? I always bounce my flash up/back, so I think I'd still need an add-on flash.

Thank you!!

The 5R has a very good removable flash which is more powerful than the one on the NEX-6. Rating 10 vs. 7.
