In the box I can't seem to find a list of things that come in the box with this item when shipped from Amazon. Here's a sample from another website.. is this what comes with it?
alpha NEX-5 Micro Four Third Digital Camera SEL1855 E-mount 18-55mm lens Detachable Flash HVL-F7S Power Cord USB Cable (Mini B) Lens Cap Case for Flash Lithium-ion Rechargeable Battery NP-FW50 CD-ROM Lens Rear Cap Battery Charger BC-VW1 Shoulder Strap
If I'm missing this somewhere on this site, also let me know!
You'll notice too, that as of Feb 7th, the Amazon product description doesn't even say WHICH interchangeable lens comes in the box, just that it is a 3X zoom. I assumed it is the 18-55mm lens but there's nothing on the product page to confirm it. This is a poor product page for Amazon, which is unusual for them.
As far as zoom to me, I don't know, but it seems like 5X (the 18-55mm). The $800 package comes with both. I have the $700 'middle' one. (Darn, the Target in my neighborhood doesn't carry the pancake lens a la carte! Seems far too pricey on Amazon for $250.) Neither internal memory nor memory card for THIS NEX-5; usually, cameras come with internal memory or memory card, not both. If you have memory cards on hand, it's convenience that way. Out of the box, you're stuck with playing with settings...
