    hello everyone from Italy:p

    My real name is Giovanni, but i choose as nickname "argon" because is my favourite element XD
    I am 19 years old, and i would like to take some stunning photos with small amount of weight. I think that this forum is a very nice place, to look around and understand what to choose.
    My photos skills is only theoretically except how to play whit the light that i still need to learn it almost well, i know how to use the exposure value and adjust the good amount of light to make a photo whit perfect amount of light, by playing whit iso, shutter and aperture.
    I just met this forum whit an amazing thread -> , after searching on the NET some nex lens :cool: russian lens for first.

    and now i'm browsing on the buy&sell zone, and it's look awesome very nice prince
    i'm in search of a nex-6 /nex-7 at least best if used

    hope to see you on all the 3d :cool:

    Hi and welcome to this forum!
    You should find here a lot of good advice. indeed, mirrorless cameras are the lightest cameras with DSLR image quality.

    you can also check out this website. You should find some interesting stuff ;-) http://ilovehatephoto.com/
    we're 3 mirrorless shooters (2 Sony A7 and 1 Sony NEX-5T)

    ah ok, i can understand why hahah

    does anyone know if adorama.com when ship used items, mark as "used item" on the parcel? i dont want to pay lots of tax i've buyed from him the nex-7, btw if i'll pay like 20% of tax it will cost me, still less than any other used nex in my country like 5n used in my country it's at 450€ when new is at 549€.

    so a quick tips, Italy is a nice country whit nice place, but items cost a lot!!

    Welcome around!

    I understand you point, I'm from Mexico and there seems to be a tax for that, I usually scavenge around for legacy lenses in flea markets and local auction sites, I've got some cool glass at reasonable prices. Original e mount lenses? Incredibly overpriced in my country!

    There are places selling used lenses in Europe too. I use Ffordes (http://ffordes.co.uk) and MK Optics (http://mkoptics.net/) mainly.

    Check out MSCfoto, it's a nice Italian forum about photography, mostly about sony and minolta. There are a lot of cameras and lenses for sale there, many at great prices!

    Cosina is probably worst of these, especially mechanically. I would pick Zuiko too but don't have personal experience about it.

    Every mirrorless user tight on money should look out old Canon lenses, good quality and cheap. Hate the mount but get a adapter for every lens. I am looking Yashica ML 50mm/1.4 at the moment, btw..

    I have the OM 50 1.4 but mine is a later non silver nose model. It is a nice compact lens. Very contrasty and warm colors but with a somewhat nervous bokeh at times --I will post some more images in the showcase thread tomorrow (I have been meaning to do that anyway).

    argon: if sharpness is a priority --although not a pancake, the sigma prime lenses are sharp for not a lot of money.
