The NEX-5N shoots great stills and videos, and will (sort of) fit in your pocket. If you're upgrading from a point-and-shoot, or want something a little lighter than your DSLR without skimping on quality, this is the one to get. Recent price drops mean the 5N is even more attractive as a great entry point into the world of interchangeable-lens compact cameras. However, those price drops coincide with the launch of the new NEX-5R, which adds WiFi, an improved autofocus system, and downloadable apps. The 5N remains a great camera -- and a great bargain -- but the 5R is now the one to beat, and a gdgt Must-have model.
