Great Camera, Dont forget to put sticker on the Touch screen

Summary: Great picture quality. It shoots similar to my mid range DSLR. (Does not beat it though, DSLR with 10MP still produced better images with higher dynamic range than this one) I also used an adapter to use my Nikon lenses and it works great. I would recommend you get a sticker for the touch screen. The screen gets scratches very easily.
Summary: I have owned a few different DSLR's over the years, currently I own the NEX-5R and a Nikon D600. Besides my D600, the NEX-5R is the best camera that I have ever used! I love the mirrorless system. SONY MAKES ONE HECK OF A CAMERA!
I love it! Great quality videos with AUTO FOCUS for YOUTUBE

Summary: I needed a great quality camera for filming videos. It has auto focus and I can see myself while filming+++. I film videos for youtube. After seeing video reviews and reading reviews on Amazon I bought it for $450+tax from SammysCamera. I got it within a week. (longest week ever due to excitement) I'm totally happy with it. I haven't bought additional lenses for it, simply because I feel it's great as is with the 18-55mm.
Summary: A great camera as always a Sony quality product. I returned it because it was a body only but that was my mistake and they refunded my total amount paid. Other than that I still recomend this vendor.
Summary: This camera was a good purchase. It takes great pictures. However, after a few months, the on/off switch became very stiff i.e. difficult to click to the left and right. We called Amazon and were asked to send the camera to Sony for repair. Since we are still within 1 year of purchasing the camera, we don't anticipate any issues with this repair process for us. If we do have issues, we will come back and update this review.
If you are a traveler this camera is the right choose for you

Summary: I've been using the 5R for one year and I really can't complain about the quality of the pictures. I took the camera to one of my friend's wedding and people were asking about the pictures the week after since the pictures had more details than the regulars camera. I have taken it to several places and it is a low profile camera. People normally don't think about the amazing results that you can get from this camera.
