Excerpt: This camera is very nice. I use it mainly with small lenses. This gives me a small item that is always available for those more-than-phone-camera moments. The in camera photo/video software makes the 16mm, 16-50mm very good. At other times, the 50mm is just a super lens when I bring it along.
Am I doing something wrong or do I have a deffective camera?

Summary: I was so excited about this camera! I bought it to replace my old Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H20/B 10.1 MP. After reading so many positive reviews. I thought I was upgrading. However, most of my pictures are slightly out of focus.... the ones with the flash are in focus but too bright.
Summary: I took the NEX-5R hiking with me yesterday and thought the shooting experience was a mixed bag. Here are my pros and cons: PROs: -Excellent image quality. Color, detail, and ISO performance are all first rate for an APS-C camera.
Excerpt: Two years ago i purchased a Sony Nex 5N. It was my first interchangeable lens camera, and it let me create terrific photos even in low light. But it was stolen 2 months ago and, after searching for weeks other camera brands, i decided to go with the Nex-5R.
Interesting, full of bells and whistles, Image just average.

Summary: Maybe I'm just old fashion, but this camera came short on image quality, the G15 is better at half the price. For $1100 (including average lens) there are many other cameras with better image quality.
Summary: camera received with a black body and silver lense.....appeared someone had switched the lense out. It was advertised with a bag and disc which did not come with the camera or later. Camera was retruned to seller for a refund.
Summary: Took over 2 weeks to get here, and the SD card took an extra day after that, but other then that it was a good deal. Camera is great, and the telephoto is new as far as I can tell, comes in the original box.
