Most helpful reviews

Tom, Cumbria Experienced amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The 5R replaced the similar 5N, which I had since that model came out. The 5R offers some improvement over the 5N, especially with the addition of the control wheel, which reduces the number of times you have to delve into the, less than easy to negotiate programme menu, as well as the new Function button. The new downloadable "APPs" offer a lot more functionality. Additionally, the ability to connect the camera through WiFi to social media sites, in order to up load images directly from the camera will be a great feature for some users.
I was originally interested in the NEX 6 but because I had invested in the electronic viewfinder for the 5N,
Bad points:
Very few, though as mentioned above, the menu can take some time to wade through to the point of interest to you and Sony could easily improve on this by having sub-menus buttons within each of the main menu button functions, especially so for the "Setup" and "Brightness and Colour" buttons, which are the two with the largest number of potential functions..
