Time to play the wait game...
Today I finally ordered a NEX-6 body, ordered the B&H Sigma lens package, memory card to go with the one I bought the other day on sale at Walmart (both 16gb), and I think I might grab a Minolta MC 50mm f/1.4 to try out as well. If I enjoy using MF as much as I think I will, a 30mm f/1.2 will be next on the list.
I already ordered a Nikon to NEX and Minolta to NEX adapter. Only other things I'd like to get right off the bat is a remote and spare batteries/external charger. Then I'll be set for a while.
I love the research part, I love the ordering part, I just hate the wait.

Oh yeah, having pulled the trigger on a deal the wait formit to arrive absolutely sucks!
because it's fleeting

Shouldn't be long. Have you downloaded the user's manual ? I always do that so I can get an idea of how I set up the camera when it gets here. Oh, and BTW, I think I had made a post on my N6 settings, you might want to look at it for a baseline.

I personally love the waiting stage. Every time I hear a diesel coming up my street, I perk up. (Is that it???)

Personally I can't stand the wait. Patience may be a virtue so I guess I'm not particularly virtuous lol

Yeah, I'm the same way. I buy something online and then the Chipmunks song, Christmas Don't be Late keeps running through my head.

No it doesn't.

Minolta MC 50mm f/1.4 ordered. NEX-6 shipped this morning from CA so likely I won't see it until Monday or Tuesday Too bad too cause I am off work this weekend. It would have been nice to have a new toy to play with. Oh well, early next week isn't bad and who knows, maybe I'll be surprised. Then I only have to hope that either my Sigma lenses arrive as well or the Nikon adapter...or I'll be busy staring at a nice, new, unusable camera body all weekend which might be worse than not having it at all...lol
