Sony Alpha NEX-5 is the “world’s smallest interchangeable lens camera,” according to Sony. It is also a lightweight camera that’s almost as portable as a PnS yet has the flexibility and has as much raw power as most entry-level dSLRs.

Sony NEX-5 is really, really small, measuring 4.4 x 2.4 x 1.6 (WHD, in inches) and weighs 14 ounces with flash and 16mm pancake lens attached, around 18 ounces with the 18-55mm zoom. You gotta check it out to see why almost everyone is so jazzed about this new camera.
