Hi Don,Andy, when I used the Nex 5 with peaking, it was amazing. In any light I could focus my Leica's. I just hate a crop factor with them. Crazy thing is, I love my Canon and Oly lenses and don't mind the crop.
I am anxious to see the Nex7. It could be the wave of the future. If the finder is RIGHT, it will draw many to it.
Duane, no finder required for GXR.
Yes Andy, they are sweet images. I've decided to get a Nex 5N bundle with 16mm, 18-55 and the VF. I was gonna hang onto the GH2 but there seems little point, may as well sell it while it is still in short supply and before the GH3 appears..I have just been looking at some image examples from the NEX 5n and 18-55 lens and i must say the IQ is quite remarkable!! They look really really good, much better than the Std NEX 5!! With legacy glass the 5n should blow just about everything out the water!!! Here is a link to the image examples: Sony NEX-5N Review: 16. Samples gallery: Digital Photography Review
How, where, did you get hold of the EVF?! Seems to be nowhere to be found - need two, ASAP!Yes Andy, they are sweet images. I've decided to get a Nex 5N bundle with 16mm, 18-55 and the VF.

Just don't buy from DZone (either one) on eBay... lots of complaints being registered and the stories all have the same "scam" snif about them.Just to chip in here. I got the EVF from Digital Rev via ebay. Took two days via FedEx. Not available in UK as yet as far as I know.
Yes.....blasphemy........especially anything on the NEX over 1600ISO.Been playing around with my NEX-5N and some lenses I have for my Pentax K-5, and I must say I have after that put my K-5 on the back burner! I love that camera, but I think the 5N get more out of the lenses than the K-5. Blasphemy.
Why not? Maybe it needs getting used to. I have a NEX-5 which has no view finder at all and , except with very bright light on the LCD, I think it is quite useable. I have the 5N + EVF too and I prefer to use it without EVF most of the time, especially in street photography.Today I went EVF-free just to see if I could. I can't... at least not with manual focus lenses and those aren't coming out of my bag any time soon.
Eyesight, mainly. I'm slightly far sighted and have 50 year old eyes. I can't squeeze them into compliance like I used to for close viewing. But I don't want nor need glasses for moving about the world, only reading.Why not? Maybe it needs getting used to.
