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.
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.
Works great unless you plan on recording long videos

Summary: The reason why I bought this camera was to use it to film some high school basketball games. The quality is fantastic and I can easily power it on and press record in time to get all the good shots. The only problem though is that if you are planning on recording videos anywhere near the 10 minute mark (even sometimes near the 7 or 8 minute mark) the camera will begin to overheat and will become a pain to try to use until you give it a break.
Summary: I really enjoy this camera. The size belies the options available. This camera has several options you'd only see in a larger camera. The size is great, but it will not fit in your pocket. The lens makes sure of that. The picture quality is excellent and will save in RAW format for the Photoshop crowd. I wouldn't call this an amateur product, but more of an entry-level professional camera. For those of you who are looking to enter photography, great camera.
