Having more or less abandoned the idea of acquiring more photographic equipment this Christmas I happened to be passing through Heathrow a few of days ago with four hours to kill. So naturally I stopped off at Dixon's to play with the NEX5. Yesterday I was back at Heathrow making the return journey and called in again. In the four days between my two visits the price had dropped from £440 to £388. (That works out at around $605 compared to the US price of $699.) How could I resist? The battery is charged, the new firmware is loaded, my custom functions are assigned and I'm ready to hit the town tomorrow. If I manage to take anything decent I'll post it here.
