IIRC , there is a firmware background defocus function.

Can I ask, are there any ports on the NEX 5 for triggering an external flash? I use external flashes and wireless triggers a lot so I'm wondering for those who switch to NEX cameras, will they still be able to use their Pocket Wizards and external flashes.

i'm juz saying that if their initial lenses will be limiting the bokeh production, so they shouldnt shout about it as a special feature to attract noob pns users to upgrade..
I think the GN is about 7 ? So its like a little table top salt or pepper shaker to add a dash of fill-in and nothing much more

Thanks Ed9119 for the feedback.
Any chance to try the 16mm yet?
I'm wondering if the bokeh is more than GF1 20mm 1.7?
If have half body bokeh for human portrait - I'm very tempted to switch... thanks
just wondering what will be the upgraded specs as compared to nex 7??
it doesn't have manual controls (Aperture, Shutter etc..) buttons rite, the manual are all selectable in the menu only?
therefore, like it or not, you will be getting bokeh. 200mm f/5.6 no bokeh? don't think so.
here is an example:
180mm, f/4.5 = oof areas
it is infinitely harder to get oof with a pns camera. the dof on a pns is crazy.
but it still can be done. if you understand how to get oof background, it has 3 factors:
1) focal length
3) subject-background distance
for every equivalent focal length, aperture, and subject-background distance, a aps-c sensor will be infinitely better (in terms of rendering an oof background) than that of a pns. period. so i don't know what you people are complaining about.
aaaarrgghhh returning it tomorrow............

so far it looks really tempting, but the lens choices are pretty limited at the moment. and we'll be stuck with whatever prices sony slaps on the lenses.
i like the camera (specs), but not so for the lenses. i'd like an ultra-wide, and a 35 or 50mm prime. good enough for me!
Then wait and see lo.i like the camera (specs), but not so for the lenses. i'd like an ultra-wide, and a 35 or 50mm prime. good enough for me!
For me, I am not too crazy of this new system. If this came out last year or half a year earlier, I may go crazy for it, but now, no... I don't think it worth to keep 2 systems, even they both from same company.
But then, if end of the year got big bonus or spare cash, maybe then ba...
