  • Conclusion: We've all been waiting in anticipation for the three leading DSLR brands to enter the CSC market, and with Canon and Nikon yet to make their move it's Sony who places its cards on the table first, with the NEX cameras. There are two 14.2MP models in the initial offering (NEX-3 and NEX-5).

Sony NEX-5 review

Amateur Photographer
5 June 2010
  • Summary: At first glance it is difficult to know what to make of the NEX-5. Its unconventional looks make it seem something of a novelty, but it is actually an extremely powerful camera. Compact camera users should find it much easier to use than a DSLR.
