I'm a long time SLR, and later DSLR user, who recently (last February) got into mirrorless, through an (excellent, I love it !) Panasonic GX-1.
Being an FF shooter as well, and a portraitist mainly, obsessed with DOF control, I've decided to give NEX a spin after the leaked NEX6 rumor and pictures.
I just grabbed a NEX 5N off ebay in Germany (I live in France) and should have it within a week.
I mostly plan to use legacy lenses with it, as I'm having a hard time getting critical focus with them and the GX-1 (despite having the external viewfinder).
I'm *extremely* curious of the Focus Peaking feature, which is the primary reason I'm trying a NEX.
Of course, APS-C sensor is a bonus over m4/3, so I'm looking forward to getting good results with that as well.
I will get the 18-55 to try, and who knows, this combo might replace my GX-1 as walk-around cam on trips ?
I'm a very heavy shooter, about 1K shots a month, my family travels quite a bit and I love making portraits of our not quite 4 yr old daughter daily.
I'm also a horse lover and owner and shoot those animals a lot. I'm a strict jpeg shooter (and often get flamed for it, lol).
I interact quite a bit on the m4/3user forum which I find wonderfully friendly, and hope to be contributing here as well.
I have a little blog that is rather photo centric and that you might want to check out :
