Sony makes some of the best tiny interchangeable-lens cameras (ILCs) in the game, but ILCs have had issues in the past with autofocus on a technical level, due to the smaller sensors. The new NEX-5R, the follow-up to the excellent NEX-5N, has 99 phase-detection autofocus sensors, so it can autofocus like a champ. Plus it's got a 180-degree swiveling screen and Wi-Fi, plus the promise of lots of cool apps from Sony. Read more about it at Pop Photo.
Plus, NEX-5R is scheduled to start shipping in October for $750, plus bundled with the 18-55mm kit zoom lens or $650 on its own, this is so plus-able fantastic!
