No matter how small Sony makes the body, you still have that large lens to contend with.
This update to the NEX-5 addresses one of the big complaints about it: the lack of an EVF. Now it's an option, as it is on most of the competitors' cameras.
The NEX system is generally screen-based, where the function of the buttons and dials vary contextually with the current mode--hence, the lack of labels.
This is the size of the body out of the box, without the bundled add-on flash or the optional EVF.
Sony still includes an add-on flash in the box. Like competing options, you can't use the flash and the EVF at the same time, since they use the same connector.
The NEX-5N doesn't have the microphone jack.
The grip is deep enough that the camera is comfortable to use even with a big lens.
The 5N incorporates the standard tilting LCD.
This is the 5N with the E-to-A-mount adapter and a "small" A-mount lens.
