I do like my Nex5, but I don't love it. It's desperately in need of more lenses. I'm glad the 50 1.8 is "here", too bad that it's not really available yet. If I could get a fast 16-50 2.8, and a 24/50/85 1.8 all for around 500 or less each I would be thrilled. The firmware updates have been great for this camera, making it far more usable.
