Sony has unwrapped this year's additions to its Nex line of compact cameras with interchangeable lenses: the 5N and the 7.

Key 5N features include a 16.1Mp APS sensor and a new, grippy rubbery coating for the camera's magnesium alloy body.

The 7 likewise sports a more DSLR-like look, with a black plastic grip. It has a 24.3Mp sensor. It comes with a 13mm, 2.3Mp OLED viewfinder that clips on top of the camera, complementing the built-in 921,600-pixel angle-adjustable LCD screen.

The 5N has the same LCD, though it's not a mobile as the one on the 7. The 5N's clip-on viewfinder is optional.
