    Nice! I have an A7 but am picking up an A6000 this weekend. I love shooting through old glass.

    Even though I sold off a bunch of lenses a few months ago, I still have far too many . . . just off the top of my head: Minolta (6), Pen F (4), C-mount (3), Micro 4/3 (2), Vivitar (2), Pentax (1), Sakar (1). I've been considering a fire sale and reducing to a bare minimum stock, but haven't made the time to photograph stuff that I want to go.

    I know the feeling. At one point I had 9 Legacy Lenses, and was only using 2.

    I was able to sell a few of my legacy lenses. I sold the Pen F 25, but kept the Pen F 38 & 20, because I like how they render. Got rid of both of my 50/1.4 lenses, as I rarely use them. I'm going to take the $$$ from those and buy a Panasonic 45-175 for my OM-D E-M5. I've pretty much settled on native glass for the E-M5, which is now my primary hiking camera, and adapted glass for the NEX-6, which is what I carry mostly during the week.

    It's easy to accumulate lenses...all I use are manual Canon FDn lenses on NEX-7's and since gaining confidence in the NEX-7's and knowing how well the Canon FDn lenses work on them, I upgraded to a few Canon "L" type zoom lenses which overlap many primes I'd accumulated.
    One example is instead of hiking back through a lake shoreline for a sunset carrying 24mm/28mm/35mm lenses...I now just mount a 24-35/3.5-L on an NEX-7 and that's it...have several excellent Canon FDn primes I no longer use and have begun moving them out.
