About the NEX 5r and 5n

Is there a difference between the 5r and the 5n in terms of IQ and focusing speed?

5r focusing is better but for IQ i think it's slightly better.

5r has build in wifi (but not a kind wifi that we expected) and with that we can access the playmemories's application who provide many application such as edit in camera, multiple exposure etc.

The 5N has a very, very small IQ advantage. The 5R has faster focusing due to it's lens firmware update, which enables the sensor-mounted hybrid phase detection pixels. (PDAF.)

Most people who have actually tested the cameras side by side say that there is no discernable difference in focus SPEED. However, the PDAF on the 5R improves focus ACCURACY when tracking subjects moving towards or away from the camera.
