    I need some advice from NEX users. I have a Zuiko Olympus 60mm 1.5 Auto-T PEN lens that I would like to test. The problem is that I have Canon DLSR cameras, and I’ve been advised that there is no current adapter that will allow me to use this lens on my 5D or T2i. Could someone advise where I can inexpensively rent an NEX camera to take some photos? I really don’t want to pay $60 to rent an NEX for 6 days. I’d only need the camera for about 10 minutes. Also, please advise what adapter I would need? One other possibility is if there’s anyone in my area (Evanston, Il) who would like to take some test photos with this lens, I’d be happy to meet and you could take as many shots as you like. I just need to take a few shots of my own as well. Thanks in advance for your response.

    You should find willing testers in your area, the PEN 60/1.5 is a cult lens nearly impossible to find and to expensive to buy ! If I weren't an ocean apart I'd love to help you test it.
