    Yes. Now Im waiting. :biggrin:

    NEX-5N (U$325) + Sigma 30mm 2.8 (U$95) both used.

    Questions:

    - What card recommend; SanDisk class 10, Transcend class 10 or any card SDHC?

    - Chinese battery are reliable? In the case of the GH2 I have read of some that have been damaged, but dont know how behave with the NEX.

    Thanks

    Either a SanDisk Extreme 45 MB/s or a Sony 94 MB/s UHS-I SD card. Both are more than fast enough for the NEX. While the Sony card is much faster in sequential writing and reading, it's not that much faster at random access and not as sturdy as the SanDisk Extreme series, but both are good cards anyways.

    And yep, cheap batteries are okay, but they don't have as much power as the original one and the capacity goes down rapidly (a year after I purchased mine it has only about 80% of the original capacity, which is about 60% of a one year old Sony battery).

    I use Transcend class 10 with no problem.

    Also there is no problem with Chinese batteries as long as you buy the latest chipped ones. Earlier ones that work with nex-5 didn't work with nex-5n. Then I had to buy new batteries, and those are OK with nex-6 also.

    Of course they work, but clearing the buffer, making the just taken image enlargeable and deleteable as well as importing the images to the computer is much faster woth UHS-I class cards, which aren't more expensive anyways.

    Thanks people.

    Which battery to buy?, One says 7.4V 080mAh and other 7.2V 1500mAh, I confused these differences and that both are on the same team.

    I read some NEX-5N can not afford to work with some.

    Battery for Sony NP FW50 Alpha NEX 5 NEX 3 NEX 5c NEX 3c NEX 5N NEX 7 1500mAh | eBay

    Come on my friend, you have to try again on ebay, you can find other generic for a few bucks, a good price, in fact I have 4 batteries, 3 from Sony and one generic from china, cost me around $ 15, and to be honest it works perfect in my two NEX.

    I was searching at ebay, but advise me what model exactly or upload the replace model or put a link of the model compatible.

    I've been using SanDisk cards for years and years and years of both professional and personal photography...never had one fail on me!

    I also have a single Transcend card (bought it because I ran out of card space on a trip and it was the only one available), it's also been flawless. If you can afford it, though...go for the Sandisk!
