    Ok respectively the 5n costs 700 and the 7 is 1400

    Anyone own either? Haven't bought a camera in ages, been using my cell phone to shoot my comic statue videos and I want to upgrade before this years San Diego comic con. Any suggestions?

    I don't think you'll go wrong with either one honestly. I heard video recording is really really good, compared to the other mirrorless cameras.

    because of the flood in Asia, both cameras are really hard to come by. I heard about the clicking noise while recording video with the 5n. It looks like that has all been corrected, however the price point between the 2 is quite substantial. I don't know if it's worth the premium, SONY canada requested that I pay in full before they bring one to the store. Should be here by Tuesday, not really camera-literate but I want an upgrade that shoots great HD video.

    The reviews are quite long.

    The Panasonic GH2 is said to have the best video capabilities
