The NEX-5T builds upon the heritage of Sony’s NEX 5 Series, which has been Sony’s mainstay lineup in the Mirrorless camera market since our E-mount system lineup was first introduced. But the NEX-5T adds new and exciting features. Inheriting well-received features from the NEX-5R, such as superlative image quality (via APS-C image sensor), superb AF performance comparable to standard SLRs (via phase detection AF) and a stylish, minimalist ultra-compact body, the NEX-5T adds new NFC sharing/control functionality, a first for NEX cameras.
As Wi-Fi and smartphones become more widely available, demand is growing for features that enable smooth linking between various devices and easy sharing of photos. By adding NFC functionality, users can smoothly and easily share photos and link up with other devices — with one touch!
Also includes Sony 16-50mm Power Zoom Lens
16.1 MP APS-C size HD image sensor
