    I think I'd rather have this (the 5R). My flirtation with another system is teaching me the value of more direct controls and a good interface.

    Seems it took a dip down to $350 last night before popping back up to $598 this morning. $350 after 10% coupon was $315. That's amazing considering that the 5R was pretty much at $599 everywhere 2 weeks ago.

    Anyone interested in the 5R should keep an eye on that website. The brief sale could have been a trial run to see how well the camera sold at this price.

    I have no doubt that the 5R would be a better camera to shoot with. But I already have a NEX and actually prefer my RX100 90% of the time. I need a high resolution NEX. I've had my eye out for a NEX 7 clearance but the A3000 is 20MP versus 24MP at a third the price. It'll due. I don't need portability. I don't need AF. I just need a high resolution E mount sensor.
