    Hi all,

    I thought I'd introduce myself and post a few pics from the 5 seconds I got my son to pose today. :) I'm coming from the DSLR World, but have RA and can't handle the big heavy monsters anymore. So far, I'm enjoying the Nex 5N!

    Here's a few quick pics, using the 55-210 Emount lens. I have some primes on the way, so I'm very excited about that!

    It's not Orange!
    Welcome aboard! There's a ;ot of ex-DSLR owners here, as well as those that use both.
    You'll love your new lenses I'm sure, did you go for E-mount or legacy lenses? ;)

    Thanks! My lens lineup (although most are in the mail) currently looks as follows:

    Sony E mount: 18-55
    Sony E mount: 55-210
    Canon 75-300 (waiting on my adaptor
    The Sigma prime bundle (19mm and 30mm)
    Minolta 50mm/1.4

    I'm looking for a good macro if anyone has suggestions. I used to use the MPE-65, but that is too heavy for me now. Just to give an example of the kind of things I was shooting (bugs, oil on water, etc). I may get the Tamron 90mm, but part of the draw for this system were the cheaper lenses. :)

    I have and use the Tamron 90mm and LOVE it. I've had it on four different Nikon DSLR bodies and now my new NEX-6. It does great things. I see them for $250ish these days used which is a great deal on such a great lens.
