Sony NEX-5KSony a NEX 5K Digital camera - mirrorless system - 14.2 Megapixel - 3 x optical zoom - Black

Sony - 14.2 megapixel - Memory Stick - SDHC - SDXC - 3 x optical zoom - ISO 12800 - Detachable Flash - 8.1 ounce

The performance of a DSLR, in about half the size and weight. The NEX-5 is the interchangeable lens camera that goes wherever you do. Enjoy Full HD 1080/60i movies, astounding low-light pictures, continuous shooting up to 7 fps, incredible panorama shots, and Live View on a tilting 3.0-inch LCD.

got to be joking regarding the image quality of the samples shown quality finish, great big sensor, great price. Its as portable as point and shoot camera and picture quality is amazing. Best camera I have so far... Size, built, picture quality Price Although the sony e-Mount lenses will be availible its well worth it to get a lense adaptor off ebay so you can try out other lenses that might be bet...

I think after playing with a few micro4/3 cameras (Panasonic, Olympus), I settled on this primarily because of size and price.

Great photos but some flaws From previously owning a Canon PowerShot G9 I wanted the next step without the bulk of SLRs. A great little camera Having read all the internet reviews, my main doubts concerned the menu system of the Nex 5.

Got this yesterday from CP after seeing it at the PC show. The new camera from Sony is very promising and will create a new segment in the market.

I am a pro and this is my goto camera for holidays. I just bought the NEX-VG10 for video. It badly needs a hot shoe accessory to use a real flash.

This is my first DSLR camera in my life, i tried it for about 1.5 day and im already in love with it! my last camera was SONY Cyber-Shot T900 12. I also bought the 16mm lens currently available. Buy the 18-55mm first. The 16mm is not as useful as it would be on the smaller sensors of say.
