Yes, I think that's a great deal actually. Sure you can get a new NEX-3N for close to that, but the NEX-5N is legendary in image quality and usability and has all the 5 series features. For $300 you can't go wrong.

Heck I'd entertain $300 just for a -5N body by itself, as a second body for my -6.

For the time-lapse only the newer 5R and 6 have the ability to take time lapse photos via an add-on app. But for baby shots the 5N will work fine.


This is what I have. I bought a used 5N (I believe for $325..no lens but had flash). I use this as a second body along with my 6. Actually this is the camera I give to my wife/kids at family functions/outings with a Sigma 30 or 19 on it. Set it to iAuto for them and let them snap away. That way, I get in some shots too (hopefully in focus and with correct white balance!), while I go around with the 6 in A or S mode, manually focusing with legacy lenses!
