Contemplating getting a Sony NEX -5

So I've read good things about this camera, small, power yet stylish. However, am concerned about the limited number of lenses it can use. Will Sony be releasing some new lenses besides the ones currently available? Also, are there any new NEX cameras coming out soon, NEX 7 perhaps ?

You can get adaptors to use other brand lenses. Not having the camera myself I'm not too clued up about it but a quick Google reveals more

I read that using the adaptor loses auto focus, so another thing to worry about.

Even with a biggish lense its substantially smaller than a DSLR.

I don't see the point in a small body when you need big (well relatively) lenses anyway.

I tried out one of these, found it superb but I also have a HX5V camera. The HD video is much better on the HX5V, the images are not as good, but not too far out. I would get a Canon EOS before the NEX, it is not as good as some people say.

I have a nex-5 with dual lenses. It is superb. I tend to have the wide angle (pankace) lense on it normally which makes it a throughly compact. If I need extra zoom, I put the bigger lense on. The Intelligent mode does a goodjob. I am currently reading on the manual mode.
