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.

• Lauryn Hill’s New Jersey tax evasion sentencing has been postponed until May 6, reports TMZ. It was moved to give Hill a chance to pay a portion of her $968,000 tax debt. According to Hill’s attorney, she signed a million-dollar record deal with Sony and will take out a $650,000 loan to use toward her mounting tax debt. Hill pled guilty to tax evasion in June 2012 and faces several years in prison. [TMZ]
