    Show what your adapted lens looks like on your NEX camera


    There are some sweet looking adapted lens-camera combos out there. Don't be shy. Show us yours!

    I'll get things started. Here is my Nex-3 with my Contax C/Y Carl Zeiss lenses.


    Contax Carl Ziess 28mm 2.8


    Contax Carl Ziess 50mm 1.4

    These are big lenses on the Nex, but they perform wonderfully. Sometimes I think about selling them and replacing them with rangefinder lenses to make the camera and lens combo smaller, but then I put them on and go out shooting and I can't bear to part with them.

    They do look large compared to the body but nice looking nonetheless. I prefer the looks of the NEX-3 to those of the NEX-5, although both are very comfortable to hold.

    I preferred the NEX-5 on looks alone, but the NEX-3 felt better in my hand and that made my decision for me. Here is my NEX-3 with my Voigtlander 28mm.

    Those legacy lenses look great on the NEX cameras. I can't wait to get the NEX7.

    RT, I thought my Contax lenses looked big! How well does that Alpha lens work on the Nex? How is the AF?

    There's some distortion going on - DT lenses are not as large as you think. Autofocus is slow but it's not due to the lens...remember it was the LA-EA1 Adapter that received the firmware update to autofocus....

    In general, it's best to avoid using the attachment system for uploading images. You'll run out of space quickly that way. The better solutions are either to host elsewhere (eg, Flickr) or to upload to an album and then embed in the post using the code provided.
