        Comments about Sony Alpha NEX-5T Mirrorless Digital Camera:

        I waited to buy the Sony NEX-5T while I decided whether or not to invest more money in the Sony E mounts or not. I have used Minolta and Sony A mount cameras for years and been very pleased. I am very happy that I did purchase this camera and lens from B&H at a great deal price. The 5T is small, fast and very portable with great images. Having started long ago with my Minolta SRT-101, I now realize how spoiled we have become - this is great equipment with great results at good prices.

          Comments about Sony Alpha NEX-5T Mirrorless Digital Camera:

          I love this little camera. My two favorite things ... great low light images, and fast, sharp focus. I don't have to take several shots of the same thing to make sure I get one or two in focus, like I've had to do with other cameras. I am a wide open, aperture priority shooter, and I always have the ISO cranked so I can avoid blur. This camera is the first I've ever trusted to shoot with auto ISO. It's super handy as I was always forgetting that one setting when going from inside to outside shots. Now I don't need to worry about it. :)

              I use this primarily for video, and it's a great camera to get started with digital video. All the features of DSLR video, but cheaper because it is mirrorless. Some of the buttons are in a weird place, but you get used to it very quick. The large LCD screen is great.

              Comments about Sony Alpha NEX-5T Mirrorless Digital Camera:

              Great little camera if you're looking for portability. Record button is in a bit of an awkward place but that could be a good thing so you don't hit in on accident.

              almost same as my 5r

              Comments about Sony Alpha NEX-5T Mirrorless Digital Camera:

              Tiny improvement over the 5r which is good to start with. Bought it for the free 20mm lens. But the lens arrived defective. Returned it for replacement. Still waiting for that to be delivered, seems it is being back ordered. Almost a month now.
              B&H is excellent as usual, responded promptly.

              Comments about Sony Alpha NEX-5T Mirrorless Digital Camera:

              This is my third Nex and second nex-5. This camera is a great addition to my Sony mirorless lineup and is finally pocketable with the collapsable lens. I would reccomend this camera to any novice, or any DLSR fanatics as a everyday camera. I always get asked what kind of cameras I have when I'm out and about with them. Another great camera to capture priceless memories.
