New Toy to Test: Sony NEX-5

On Thursday I got an NEX-5 from Sony to play with. It has taken some nagging as we have had one before but then it was still running the old firmware. In checking back though I have realised that while we had the NEX-5 at launch, we never published the review. So, over the next few days – remembering my post last week on “Stop Making Excuses” – I will be giving the NEX-5 with the new firmware a run through and sharing my thoughts (and photos, GULP) with you. Just my first impression on the cosmetics of the black body with those greyish silver lenses… its the first camera I have played with in a while that I don’t like in black.
