No you are not alone Luke... I actually briefly owned a Nex 5N, and my thoughts were exactly the same. I know a lot of people complain about the lens size on the Nex, it is actually not so much that they are too big, but more the body too small.. Having said that I really like the feel of the Nex 7 (which is bigger), and the soon to be announced 6 takes that body shape I believe...Am I the only one that wants a bigger body for these things? Thin is cool, but I need it a little taller. There's nowhere for me to put my hands.
