    Photo Rumors posted this image of the upcoming NEX-5N, which is expected to be announced on August 24th and available in September:


    It certainly looks legit!

    According to their sources, the 5N will have a blazing fast 0.02s shutter lag and 3-inch 921k dot touchscreen LCD with touch-enabled autofocus (AF) tracking. Hopefully that means that there is touch control for AF and shutter release.

    It does look legit! Although not as retro looking as an E-Px! It looks good still.

    I wish we knew more at this point about the rumored EVF that will be available for the 5N. If the NEX-7 does prove to too rich for my blood, then the 5N with the detachable EVF might be a nice alternative down the road.

    It looks nice, with a fairly big grip... the color I'm not so sure!

    I like the look of a chrome lens on a while camera, especially with a tan case. I wouldn't buy one in those particular colors, but I think they look nice!

    Looks like a brick.
