    I bought the Lowepro Cirrius TLZ 5 at Changi Airport DTS. Its small, well padded and fits the Nex5 with kit lens perfectly, even with flash attached! Recommended!

    You can check out Crumpler camera bags also. Fun looking and nice to carry. For me I am using a Billingham bag with all my SLR equipment, but may get a small crumpler for my NEX.

    No la. This cam is really great for street taking and all these. The size is really a super plus point and surprising, i dun have the battery problem. Able to hold charge at 100% and after one day of usage, battery is around 70 percent with 100+ photos taken. Just happy clicking away. ^^

    Cause was playing with the D5000 and 550D plus this nex 5 in mscolor... in the end i chosen Nex 5 but till now, my mind still thinks of the D5000...so, wanna let go and return for the D5000. HAHA.

    Anyone want my less than 2 days old Nex 5??

    Thanks for all replies.. I will check out Lowepro sling bags..

    Actually i was considering btw 550D or Nex 5.. But gave in eventually to Nex 5 (although heart still thinking about 550D). I am sure that i will have no regrets as the size is a big advantage without compromising the pic quality..

    Do you think it is advisable for me just to store the camera in dry box with thirsty hippo?

    i got terraclime 50 for my nex 5 from CP for 29. They only got black.

    actually fits the NEX 5 n both lenses

    like it cos i can detach the sling and just use as a pouch to protect my NEX when i put it in a bigger bag

    To change the Exposure compensation is only one button pressed.

    I use Flexible focus mode and turn off the "shooting help". So the Help button is replace by focus point button. Also one button to access focus point setting.

    The only trouble I found is to change the ISO. If use auto, I think (not confirm) it allows from iso200 to iso800 only, which is not sensitive enough indoor. So I need to set iso1600 or higher by going into Menu->Brightness->ISO->(choose ISO). This is the long sequence which I think Sony should improve.
    I am happy if they allow us to configure highest usable auto ISO in setup. Coz I definitely will set to ISO6400 and it solves all problem.
    I cant seem to find the option to turn off the 'shooting tips', wanna use the bottom button for something else more useful as well.

    Pls advise

    Turn off the help menu in setup, then goto the camera option where you can choose the different focusing points and choose selectable focus point. After you have done so the bottom button changes from shooting tips to 'focus' where every time you press that, you can change your focus point.

    Good to use because the shutter button locks focus and exposure together, which is the only really irritating thing about the NEX5, together with how it C-AFs.

    Yah just to add , think if you are in Iauto mode , the shooting tips seems to stay.

    I bought the new Sony Nex 5k 3 weeks ago after reading all the favorable reviews on the web. Since then the camera has visited in Sony care twice. First there were dust specks in the lens. Now the camera cannot recognize the lens. It is now back at the service centre and I've beed refused a replacement of the lens by the customer support person. Their standard reply I am getting is that they will attempt to repair even though it is less than 1 month old. This is very poor support for a flagship camera from Sony. I am waiting to collect the camera and waiting to see what will be the next problem.

    This will be the last Sony purchase from this customer.

    I feel sorry for you. I guess it is because it passed the 7 days 1-to-1 purchase policy. If I were you, it will be a long time before I consider SONY camera again. This really affect SONY coporate image.
