Sony NEX-5N Camera Review – a DSLR Replacement?

Posted on in Reviews

Several years ago I shot almost exclusively with the Canon 5D mark II and fell in love with the photos it produced, especially in low light. Over time, however, it just got too bulky to travel with. I got tired of lugging the thing around. Last year I looked around to see if I can
