Style Name: With 18-55mm LensColor: Silver Verified Purchase
Just received my Sony NEX-5RK/S with the kit 18-55mm lens, along another lens I bought separately - the Sigma 30mm F2.8 EX DN- Sony E 330965, (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0078ZYBP0/). I've only had a few hours to play around with it, but am already very impressed and happy.

I am not a professional photographer, but have used a wide range of cameras from point-and-clicks, to the Canon EOS Rebel XT DSLR I've owned for more than six years. If you're a serious professional photographer, then I'm sure there are plenty of cameras better suited to your level of expertise. If you're like me, someone who just wants professional-LOOKING photos from my various outings, holidays and special occassions, then you will be very pleased with the Sony NEX-5RK.


I bought the Sony because my old Canon was simply too bulky and not at all easy to use on vacation of family outings. I wanted something with more of the convenience of the pocket cameras, but with all the professional capabilities of the DSLRs. The Sony, even with the zoom kit lens, is small enough to fit in a jacket pocket or purse - or just use the included neck strap. The camera is so light, you won't even notice it. The shipping weight says 3 pounds, but that includes the charger and manuals. The camera alone - with lens - is probably closer to 2 pounds.


When I purchased this camera, there was a free accessory package offer I added to my order - which included a (1.) 16GB memory card, (2.) a camera bag (Case Logic DCB-304 High/Fixed Zoom Camera Case (Black) - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0039BPG1A/ref=oh_details_o02_s01_i00) and (3.) a Pogoplug device. The camera bag is perfect, and also includes a strap.

This review is for both new NEX adapters and exist NEX members wish to upgrade to 5R.

I'm a active NEX users and very fond of NEX-7 for it's whole package. I bought this 5R as a backup camera to my NEX-7. So here is some conclusion of my 2 weeks extensive experience with NEX-5R, hope it can give you some ideas:
The NEX-5R is the 3rd generation of Sony NEX camera line:

Entry: NEX-3
Intermediate: NEX-5
Enthusiastic: None

Entry: NEX-C3
Intermediate: NEX-5n
Enthusiastic: NEX-7

Entry: NEX-F3
Intermediate: NEX-5R
Sub-Enthusiastic: NEX-6
Enthusiastic: NEX-7

Entry: NEX-3N
Intermediate: NEX-5R(update soon)
Sub-Enthusiastic: NEX-6
Enthusiastic: NEX-7(update soon)

Thus, the NEX-5R is the successor of NEX-5n.
If you have don't have a extensive knowledge about NEX-5n or NEX family, here are the highlights of my field experience:

1. APS-C sensor size, 1.5x crop for lens DOF and focal calculation, very popular and balance sensor size, give you enough shallow depth of field but still keep lens in a affordable weight, seize and price.
2. Sony CMOS Sensor, the most widely used and acclaimed sensor in recent days, even Nikon, Pentax, Olympus, Fujifilm put Sony senor into their highest level DSLR cameras. It gives you the lots of dynamic range, color depth and top notch low light ISO performance.
The field benefit is I can live with jpegs directly come from the camera w/o tweak Raws and struggle for more detail and dynamic range.
3. Compact size, well designed simplistic camera body is very easy to handle and grasp.
4. Relatively long battery life compare to similar specs mirrorless cameras.

Style Name: With 18-55mm LensColor: Silver
I took the NEX-5R hiking with me yesterday and thought the shooting experience was a mixed bag. Here are my pros and cons:


-Excellent image quality. Color, detail, and ISO performance are all first rate for an APS-C camera. Noise becomes noticeable at ISO3200 but even at that sensitivity, the noise is of the fine grain variety so it still looks halfway decent. Color performance does degrade a little as you get to ISO1600 and beyond but this is pretty typical for this class of camera.

-Exposure is generally on the mark if skewing a little towards underexposure. Which I prefer to overexposure.

-Dual dials for adjusting both aperture and exposure.

-Autofocus performance is generally pretty good.

-Shot to shot times are good.

-Camera feels solid and well-made.


-The LCD sucks on this camera. It's extremely reflective in sunlight even with the settings adjusted accordingly. This is a big problem because, unless you buy the add-on viewfinder, it's all you have to compose a shot. By the time you got the add-on viewfinder, you could've paid the same amount for the NEX-6 which features one built-in.

-The touch screen is of the resistive type rather than capacitive. It's good in a way because it prevents you from accidentally firing off a shot but at the same time, it just isn't as responsive as a capacitive touch screen.

-Like other Sonys, I find the menu system needlessly complicated and feel it should be streamlined for access to commonly used shooting settings.

Judged by its images (especially if you put a decent lens on it), the NEX-5R is an excellent imaging machine right up there with the best of the APS-C cameras.
