No viewfinder. Buy at your peril.


I've still got my original NEX-5 without viewfinder and I'm still alive to tell the tale.

Nice find, I'm after a camera but can't decide what to buy.
great price
the 329 is irrelevant though tbh as even the superior a5100 has been less

Curry’s sells the black model for £329. Amazon sells it at £299. Hope it helps someone out there looking for a good compact camera.
I hated that LCD screen, really poor.

But at this price would be rude not to...
This should go Supanova but will probably end up Artic
At least some Currys and John Lewis branches have a stupid policy of still keeping out of stock items on display.

When I tell them I want to buy they item, the usual scenario is: they unlock some draws and look around, check their computer, say that none are in stock and refuse to sell the actual item on display.

Been there done that many times, Last time was with a surface pro, Showing in stock, box was there but could not find Tablet, likely story. I suspect a member of staff had put aside to sell on ebay

Or they'll offer to sell the display item with no further discount.
They had the black version at this price in Mile End, ex display, gone now. Currys have discontinued them by them look of it.

I doubt it will go supernova... unless it's national.

But for me, the deal being in Swansea doesn't make it hot.
I have the 6000 which is brilliant

That’s good to know.
I have the a5000 and it's great
Additional lenses are expensive, Auto focus speed could be faster but nothing serious, but quality of pictures is good

I still have my 5N which is still one of my favourite cameras.
Went into my local Curry's and the staff didn't even know it had been reduced until I showed them the image above and they confirmed nationwide, unfortunately no stock near me

Ancient tech! I hate this new model every year bolox. I still use my Contax G2 film camera and they produced that exact camera for 9 years! The Sony a series will be more than enough for all but a professional for years to come. My 2011 Sony 5N is still my go to pocket camera.
The ISO for stills suggests it may be really good in low light conditions.. 🤔

The 5N is a miles better camera than this in my opinion... It's the first decent camera I ever owned and still offers better low light performance than a lot of new generation cameras.
I know what you're saying about new models but the A5000 was never much cop in my opinion, A5100 is aeons ahead.
