There are a lot of wonderful cameras out at the moment but I do find it interesting that the NEX 5n is kind of flying under the radar at the moment. Granted it's an older body but it can be bought for under $400 new, still delivers excellent images and depending on your needs it very much in the same league as newer bodies. Of course your expectations play a huge role in what you do and do not find acceptable but for me the 5n is still a great body. For a shade under $400 you get an outstanding APS-C sensor that has better DR, lower noise and better color depth than the much loved Olympus E-M5, and IMHO pretty close to that of the Fuji X bodes. It's small, shoots 24p video, has a 900K flip up touch screen, focus peaking and can shoot at 10fps. It has it's weaknesses (such as uninspiring AF) but considering that it is half the price of the Olympus E-M5, a third the price of the Fuji XE-1, half the cost of the NEX 6 and a tenth the price of a Leica M8 I still find the 5n mighty impressive. One of the things that the 5n gets hammered for is the weird UI and skimpy controls and I think it's a fair criticism but at least for me it doesn't really pose that much of an issue. I shoot almost exclusively with MF lenses. I do have a Sigma 30 for those moments when I want AF but I'll be the first to admit it's not great AF. The lens is nice and I think capable of superb results but the AF is middling at best. I've seen worse but there are a lot that are faster. I think part of the problem is that the NEX doesn't immediately tell you when it fails to lock focus. It keeps hunting. If it employed an immediate fail like you see on the Fuji X-1 Pro I think the NEX AF might not seem quite as bad. So again, for my purposes it is not much of an issue. The other thing that the NEX 5n gets criticized about is the paucity of controls on the body. This is where I have to disagree a bit. Of course it's different for everyone and I wouldn't dream of saying that someone that finds it problematic is wrong, but instead I'll say that at least for the way I use it I don't find that I feel particularly deprived. I shoot in either A mode or M mode. I rarely switch when shooting. I use MF legacy glass so aperture is controlled on the lens. Exposure compensation is mapped to the wheel on the back and typically I set it and forget it. WB and shooting mode are also on the rear dial and MF assist on the bottom button and since I got the hang of peaking I rarely even bother with that anymore. The tilting LCD is bright and sharp and the sunny weather mode really works well. I shoot available light so I don't need a flash and while the layout isn't perfect I got used to it pretty quickly. Now that I have it set up I rarely menu dive and I don't find that the camera really gets in my way when I use it. Of course there are things I wish it did...I'd love it if I could remap the video button and had more flexibility to remap the rear dial but considering the price of the 5n right now and the kind of performance it is capable of I think it's a hell of a deal.
