    Well, this was a first - Austin City Limits festival with a mirrorless camera and manual focus adapted lenses. I usually show up with my Canon and a 35mm 1.4 L and a 70-200 2.8 IS but this year decided to shed some pounds and give the NEX a shot. Each of the three days I brought the following three lenses:

    1. Contax 35mm f/2 G or Contax 28mm f/2.8 C/Y mount - I switched between days
    2. Minolta Rokkor-X PG 50mm f/1.4
    3. Minolta m-mount 90mm f/4

    You can see the full set here: ACL 2011 - a set on Flickr

    And here are a few of my favs:




    Can't rave enough about the 5N. Simply amazing little camera.

    I love it when NEX shows how to handle light correctly
