One of Sony's first two steps into the Micro Four Thirds / mirrorless space — the other being the NEX-3 — the Sony NEX-5 features a 14.2-megapixel APS-C sensor crammed within a slim, magnesium alloy construction mated to metal-encased lenses with an all-electronic E-mount. The NEX-5 also comes equipped with an angle-adjustable, 3-inch display, infrared remote receiver, and 1080i video capture in AVCHD format.
