    Nikon V1/J1 vs Sony NEX-5N

    Quick vote, which out of the two?

    I've read and read and read about them both.

    Just can't decide which one haha.



    Both have their pro's and con's, but both also get rated and held so highly! So I can't seem to decide.

    The Nikon V1 looks so good, and the Sony NEX-5N looks silly.

    But on paper and in reviews the NEX-5N performs so well!



    The V1 performs pretty well on paper and in reviews too, even with the smaller sensor I guess size isn't always everything, it's how you use it right?

    Decided to "shave" my signature ;]
    Now mostly shoots with: Canon 5D MK3 & Canon 24-70 f/2.8/50mm f/1.8 (also have a 550D with a variety of lenses/goodies and a Sony Nex-5N)
    PP with: Lightroom only, Photoshop is merely a 9-5 work tool for me.

    Just pick one and buy it. the only photo that is bad, is the one not taken, cause you hadn't bought the camera.

    The best thing to do is to go into a shop and have a play with both of them.

    After you've handled them and pressed the shutter a few times, one of them will feel like it is made for you, and the other won't.
    All my photos are taken with recycled pixels.

    I spoke to someone who works for a camera store that owns a V1, he didn't like it..

    I ended up buying the NEX-5N!
