  • Summary: In the late summer of 2013, Sony announced the "ultra-portable" αlpha NEX-5T compact camera system. The NEX-5T is Sony's first interchangeable lens camera capable of NFC (Near Field Communication) one touch wireless connectivity with compatible Android smartphones and tablets.
  • Pros: APS-C sized image sensor great for image quality, CMOS image sensor helps with low light results, Fast autofocus eliminates shutter lag, Minimal shot to shot delays, even when using the flash, Up to 10 frames per second in continuous shot mode, Smaller and lighter camera versus other interchangea...
  • Cons: Menu structure is poorly organized, Playback mode button is oddly placed, Movie recording button is too small and too tight to the camera body, If flash isn't locked in place, it's easy to bump it loose, Start-up is a little slow versus similar cameras, Design doesn't quite have the charm of retr...

  • Conclusion: Sony's Alpha NEX-5T mirrorless camera is simply last year's NEX-5R with added NFC support for quick image transfer to a smartphone. And the price has come down. So this isn't a bad thing.
  • Pros: Tilting, touch-screen LCD. Wi-Fi with NFC support. Excellent high ISO performance. 10fps burst shooting. Compact design. 1080p60 video capture. Optional EVF available.
  • Cons: No built-in flash or hot shoe. Lacks a dedicated battery charger. Not all camera apps are free.

Sony Alpha NEX 5T Review

Digitaltrends
31 October 2013
  • Conclusion: It’s easy recommending the Sony NEX-5T. It grabs images that are this close to Fujifilm CSCs using the X-Trans CMOS sensor. Since Sony supplies chips for practically everyone, they could even be the same imaging device but we slightly prefer the photos of the X-M1 , which are just a bit sharper...
  • Pros: Superior stills and videos, Advanced Hybrid AF, Built-in Wi-Fi/NFC
  • Cons: Poor flash/display design, Learning curve for onscreen menus

  • Summary: Other than the addition of NFC connectivity, a new 16-50mm power zoom kit lens, and a slightly lower launch price, the Sony NEX-5T is identical to last year's NEX-5R model. So while it remains an excellent all-round compact system camera that successfully reaches out to beginners and more experience...

Sony NEX-5T review

TechRadar UK
4 October 2013
  • Summary: Mid-range NEX is replaced again
  • Pros: Touchscreen, Wi-Fi/NFC, Large sensor, Small size, There's plenty to like about the 5T including its small size and tilting touchscreen. The inclusion of Wi-Fi is fast becoming a must-have feature of a camera, but here it is implemented particularly well, making it easy to transfer images across o...
  • Cons: Non-standard hotshoe, Limited apps, Can't shoot filters in raw, With the promise of apps, Sony has the chance to really deliver here, but unfortunately it doesn't. The 5T has to compete with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy NX, with its full Android operating system offering an incredible array of...
