Sony today announced two NEX cameras, the NEX-7 and the NEX-5N. The Sony NEX-7 is the new flagship of the Sony NEX line and has a feature list which incorporates nearly every desire I have seen expressed by the enthusiasts who frequent photography forums: Integrated electronic viewfinder without the "DSLR hump" 2.4M dot OLED EVF with eye sensor Three control wheels for extensive tactile control over camera operations New 24MP sensor for class leading resolution with ISO range 100-16,000 Flip-style (90 degrees up/45 degrees down) 922K-dot 3-inch rear LCD display Shutter lag reduced to just 0.02 seconds using optional electronic first curtain 10 frames per second burst mode for up to 13 consecutive frames in RAW mode Integrated flash and hot shoe Progressive 1080p60 HD movie recording with built-in stereo mic and full manual exposure control The only features thing I can think of which is missing from the NEX-7 is a touch-responsive rear LCD, which interestingly has been incorporated into the new NEX-5N but not the flagship NEX-7. According to early reports, the NEX-7 will be priced ~$1200 body only or $1350-1400 with 18-55mm kit lens (a black version of which will only be available with the NEX-7). No other kit options (eg, Zeiss 24/1.8) have been announced. The second new camera announced today, pictured above, is the NEX-5N, which price-wise will occupy the middle position in the NEX range. The NEX-5N is an update to the existing NEX-5 and as mentioned above adds a touch-response rear LCD while increasing the sensor resolution to 16MP with an ISO range of up to 25,600 equivalent. Like the NEX-7, the NEX-5N offers a 0.02s shutter lag, improved autofocus speed compared to the prior NEX-5 model, burst mode of 10FPS, and full 1920X1080 HD video at 24P or 60P using AVCHD with manual control over exposure. The NEX-5N will cost ~$600 body only or $700 for 18-55mm lens kit. There will be an optional EVF for the NEX-5N which will feature the same 2.4MP OLED specification as the integrated EVF in the NEX-7 and priced at ~$350-399 based.
