I just got the Sony Nex-5n from BHPhotVideo.com and I’m really excited to start playing!! First thing I did was through the battery on charge and take a very quick look at the camera. I didn’t want to touch it with my hands yet, because I need to take all the review images and it’s best done right out of the box. You would be amazed at how much dust gets on it once you take it out and play for a few minutes. I made that mistake with the a55 several months back 😉 In any event, the Camera body looks more chiseled than the Sony Nex-C3 I just reviewed and it also appears much thinner. The sceen on the back looks incredible and I can’t wait to articulate it up so I can shot low to the ground shoots so easily again. It works great for taking pics of Layla and the dogs in particular for me. On the A35 which I’m currently wrapping up my review on, the screen is fixed and it is much harder to take low to the ground shots. I pretty much have to put my shoulder on the ground in order to see good enough to nail the focus etc… That is not an issue with the articulating screens though 🙂
I’ll try and get the “product” shots done today so I can play with he camera tonight and post a decent “Hands on Preview”. Hopefully the dreaded clicking issue I read about on SonyAlphaRumores.com is not present!! Full specs, features, and my initial impressions of the Nex-5n over Here >>
