NEX-5N vs A6000

Had the A6000 for a few days now. My other camera is the legendary NEX-5N. Empirical evidence so far (I'm a JPEG shooter only so far) :

A6000 - Superfast AF and reduced back focusing issue (compared to 5N of course)

Control wheel is hugely beneficial as is the Fn button

Handling - much better.

Finally a built in flash!

5N - better high ISO JPEGs

The EVF on 5N is better in terms of brightness and being articulated

don't know why but the JPEGs from 5n look more contrasty and punchy with the same settings and the lens! Weird but that's how they look to me.

Still getting a hand of the Japanese version A6000!

Happy clicking all!
