I will never stop loving the 5n. It was my first mirrorless camera, and it's what made me fall in love with Sony mirrorless. Absolutely groundbreaking camera. I've moved on to a NEX-6, and I'm about to get an a6000, but the 5n will always have a place in my heart.

For that matter, so will the C3 and the 7. Never owned them, but did have the good fortune of using them, and they both struck me with their excellent designs.

I'm really looking forward to the a6000, since I think technically it represents a major milestone in mirrorless, but in terms of design, I'd be lying if I said I was impressed by the latest "alpha" E-mount series of a3000, a5000, and even a6000 (I mean external, physical design).

I'm also a bit nervous about where the 5n/5r/5t successor fits into the new numbering scheme. It would be a shame if they abandoned the super-slim body type.

Yeah, and I'm bitter about the name change too.

Anyway, back to your original point. The 5n is a great camera.

I have decided to get the a6000. I have had the NEX 5N for 2.5 years and have enjoyed it very much. My only problem (self inflicted) has been that I often don't know which lens to put on it. The problem of lens over-load.
