4.0 out of 5 stars Truly enjoy so far, October 29, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sony NEX-5RK/S 16.1 MP Compact Interchangeable Lens Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens and 3-Inch LCD (Silver) (OLD MODEL) (Electronics)
Just traded in my D3000 for the Nex 5R. I've loved my Nikon (and the D50 before it) for years, but was growing a bit weary of chasing the family with the heavy camera and lens. I started reading reading reviews for these mirrorless slrs and decided to give it a try. Just got it last week and took it to Disney World for the weekend. I really enjoyed the light weight. It focuses very fast (almost as fast as the Nikon). It is loaded with all kinds of features, of which I haven't even attempted to try out, but the auto feature is foolproof, and does neat things like determining when backlighting is needed, and facial recognition is a great feature...it saves 2 images, 1 of the photo you frame, and one of the face it recognizes. Flash works really well for such a small unit.

Thank you for your review! I assume this came with a flash that attached right into the smart terminal? I am confused because of this note I saw under specifications:
Flash Type : External flash (supplied) attachable to Smart Accessory Terminal "Smart Terminal II" (sold separately) - I am not sure what is 'sold separately'. I would appreciate it if you can clarify this for me. Thank you very much!

The external flash is included. You could also wait another month for the NEX-6R which will sport a built-in pop-up flash along with the better lens(16-50mm).

Thanks Scott! But the Nex-6 is going to be around a $1000 correct?
