    My favorite 30 years ago. Now it sits on my NEX 5N.

    It will be interesting to get some pictures with it.

    Vivitar 70-210 / 1:3.5 Macro Focusing Zoom with Fotdiox OM - NEX adapter.

    I just sold one of those, and yes it was very sharp. I still have one without the macro, and it too is very sharp.

    The Vivitar Series 1 has excellent optical.

    Man, I should drag all the C/Y mount lenses I have out and play. And then sell them. ;)

    Yeah you gotta play with them for sure! As for selling them, I'd wait until the FF NEX comes out... it'll be worth more then, lol! (Just joking, or am I?) :)

    Haha! You have any idea how much a Contax 28-85 f/3.3-4.5 weighs? It's a brick. Takes good pics though. Or at least it did. Probably still does. I guess we'll find out. Assuming I can find it. ;)

    Holy crap that thing is huge. Was thinking of procuring one for doing macro work, but that combo just looks silly.

    Nah, that's peanut size for a moderately fast 210mm telephoto (constant f3.5 aperture).
    I know what you mean though... it doesn't sit on the 5N, but rather the 5N sits on it!




    Speaking of real huge (real fast) telephotos...

    Nikon+vs+Canon+at+the+Beijing+Olympics.

    ... image one of those stuck on a NEX (rather a NEX stuck on one of those)! :D

    Brian, I too have the same problem. All the Nex adapters don't come with rear lens cap
