READ THIS BEFORE YOU PURCHASE FROM SONY

Lee the Reader, Amazon
28 September 2011
  • Summary: PLEASE NOTE: I'm giving this product an overall 1 star rating due to Sony's poor customer service...not due to the actual performance of the product. The product works as described and hasn't malfunctioned since I purchased it a year ago.

Was very good - for a while

snowhillguy, Amazon
19 July 2011
  • Summary: I've been using high quality cameras for more than 45 years - made the transition from film to digital, photograph professionally - I have some creds here. Though totally in love with my Nikon F's (tens of thousands of exposures over 45 years and NEVER a failure or repair) I eventually migrated to...

WARNING: This is the 16mm lens kit not the 18-55mm Kit

Angel_Pen "angel_rising", Amazon
27 June 2011
  • Summary: Someone "forgot" to mention that this item will not include Sony's better quality and more expensive 18-55mm zoom lens, instead it comes with the cheaper, lesser quality, Sony 16mm ONLY. This is is why the price is lower, it is not a discounted price, it is a lesser quality kit.

A very expensive doorstop

M. Dabney "NoStrongViews", Amazon
29 May 2011
  • Summary: I am old enough that I spent the first half of my life with SLRs and 35mm film. MY first foray into digitable photography was with a Sony Cyber-Shot-really sharp photos and easy to use. I was really excited to move upto the Sony DSLR NEX5. It arrived late Friday of this 2011 Memorial Weekend.

New stock in March 2012 STILL has clicking problems in video.

Albert R, Amazon
7 March 2012
  • Summary: I ordered a new NEX-5N on 5th March 2012 direct from Amazon UK (not a marketplace seller). I had been waiting a number of weeks for new stock to arrive, but I was fine with this as I assumed any new stock would be newly manufactured and therefore would have the infamous clicking problem resolved.

mr mipps, Amazon
3 January 2012
  • Summary: I have been a keen photographer for 50 years, owned many good cameras, Rolliflexes, Nikons, etc. I can honestly state that this camera is impressive, the image quality is breathtaking, the options for image management offer extended horizons for your creativity.
