if you need to ask, then you arnt the person who will appreciate the extra features for a $200 difference
Not true at all. I want to purchase an NEX, but have noticed that there are several 5 series. I sincerely wanted to know the difference and money is not the differentiating factor. I have only owned Canons in the past but like the design and feel of the NEX as a go to camera between DSLR and point and shoot.
Just purchased a one way ticket to Europe and want to make the most well informed decision without spending hours on google...
