    Well I just tried it and found it quite nice to use. I think the info on spec comparison is very helpful.

    Very cool site. It would be nice to be able to see both cameras from all angles though.

    Agree. The problem is that we don't we don't have the option to shoot photos of unavailable sides. I wish that good be done. Who knows, maybe in the future to come.

    Thanks for your positive feedback Jorgen.

    What is amazing is just how much that Nex 5N dwarfes EVERYTHING you put it in comparison including cameras with significantly smaller chips such as the Fuji X10 or interestingly the new Panasonic GX1. Putting it next to a 1DX was just fun for the soul, especially if one day you would like to not have to carry a big pro beast like that any more (not that I have my 1Ds3 still but I remember it well!). Such a tiny body with such a huge and incredible chip, touchscreen, top of the line EVF available, articulated screen, that camera still never ceases to amaze me!

    Thanks for that Terry
    Thanks Idan - great site and very useful.

    I think this is a much more telling comparison:

    As Ben Says - look at the 5n!

    or this:

    Nikon vs Sony

    To build something as small as the NEX 5 one of the biggest challenges is the user interface. As you lose button real estate you don't want to have a cramped tiny button layout so good design becomes paramount.
