An upgrade to the NEX-5, the 5N continues Sony's mirrorless line with a newer 16 megapixel sensor. As with all the NEX's, reviews have been very positive. That sensor is really quite good in low light and, as with all Sonys with CMOS sensors, the NEX-5N does 1080p video at 60fps and 10fps continuous stills. If you're looking for a capable, DSLR-quality camera in a compact package, the NEX-5N is a great place to start. The lens lineup is still relatively small but Sony has promised more lens releases soon. For more external controls and a much higher resolution sensor, check out the NEX-7.
