    No smart accessorie terminal and a zoom lever? Clearly aimed at compact camera upgrades. But that's fine, at least now there's a clear cut from the 3 series to the 5 series.

    So that is more like a C3 with a flash in that is has no way to add the EVF. That would put it under the F3. Sony has got some weird numbering scheme going on here withe the letter designation going in front and behind the number. C3, F3 vs 3n.

    3N, 5N, 6N, 7N (well, somedays ;)) - maybe they simply want to make it the same on all their cameras finally. Could be confusing though because the 3N is another generation than the 5N (but seems to have less functionality ...).

    There may be a smart accessory port in the flash compartment but it would be logical that they would leave it out as it would make clear distinction with 5's. Would work with me for example, I wouldn't buy it.

    Hm I like the on/off switch - probably the worst design thing on F3 :)
    and zoom lever can be great for SEL16F50
    but it lacks biger grip like F3 - never mind Im waiting for a successor of 7 or 6 :)

    I think that I am stepping up one level from C3 to the 5's. I will of course wait for a good sale. 5N doesn't sell cheap at the moment so there wasn't overproduction, hope 5R does some time.

    The full frame camera will be interesting but it will be too expensive for me for several years, I believe.
