This is a gem, if you have the lenses for it.

fair review, Amazon
30 April 2014
  • Summary: I, like a number of NEX users, find that many Sony E-mount lenses are really not up to snuff, and buying E-mount CZ lenses that cost several times more than the NEX5 body doesn't seem like a cost effective solution. I solved the lens issue by initially using a Sony LA-EA2 adapter and my "vintage" Minolta AF lenses. This camera, for me, was transformed by the ability to use my favorite Minolta lenses (which I have been using on my Sony A99).

Sony Alpha NEX5A Digital Camera

Sam Amulyoto, REVIEW STREAM
22 March 2014
  • Excerpt: I recently had to buy a camera as a gift for somebody who had very good artistic ability, but who didn’t want a typical DSLR camera . I got the Sony Alpha NEX 5, and so far it seems like it was a very good choice. Looking back, I wish I had bough him a small DSLR camera such as the Nikon D3100, since the price difference between it and the Sony isn’t that big, and it would also have made it possible to use a wide array of lenses and accessories.

Sony NEX-5 camera

Brock, REVIEW STREAM
22 March 2014
  • Excerpt: I am back with a review of Sony NEX-5. I had this camera with me during the winter holidays, and I thought that it would be a good idea to share my opinion about it for the people who are interested in buying one. I wanted something that was a little bit better than a compact camera , because I don’t consider that I a am ready for a full DSLR. Maybe you are wondering why I didn’t get an entry level model from Canon or something like Sony Alpha.

Nice Camera!

  • Summary: When choosing cameras like this, it pays to consider what the camera's final product is. As a camera mounted on a Zenmuse gimbal, this is perfect.

Just an Amateur in Love

Travel Junkie, buydig.com
2 August 2013
  • Summary: I am an amateur photographer. Have used this camera to take macro shots, panoramic, portraits, and a multitude of subject matter in all lighting conditions and I couldn't be happier. The video I have taken has also been great. I really love this camera. Only thing is that it obviously does not fit in ones pocket, so it still requires carrying a gear bag around but at least its smaller and lighter than a traditional DSLR set up.
  • Pros: Compact With Dslr Quality, Easy menu, Great Camera, Long Battery Life, Quick Change Lens
  • Cons: apps are limited, Apps cost too much

Viewfinder A Must Have

Doctor Don, Adorama
7 March 2013
  • Excerpt: The viewfinder has proven to be essential for taking good pictures outdoors. The annoyance of having to attach the viewfinder is overshadowed by the ability it gives the photographer to frame and focus the shot in bright light. Having eye glasses makes the use of the viewfinder somewhat cumbersome.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable

Ideal for Telephoto Lens

Kamikaze Ken, Adorama

  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable
