I am close to letting my D5000 and LX3 both go (to caring homes) and getting a new small camera for travelling/taking everywhere I go and as a video camera and I am looking at the Sony NEX5N with the 16mm pancake and 18-55mm..

I used a NEX5 and was taken aback by how much I enjoyed handling it the other day. I prefer it to the Oly and Lumix 4/3, and the Nikon 1 series just ain't it for me.

I think prefer the NEX5N sensor to the NEX7, as it appears to have better low light performance. Not sure about the lenses though, which brings me to the x100.....

or should I get the X100...., which is awesome, if you can live with 35mm focal length.. The more images I see the more I am drawn to the camera...

All thoughts welcome.
