    Seems like one of those "why not" things. I'd love to say this looks nice, but I just don't like the look of the screen on the right with the buttons on the left. Although I'm left handed, this seems a little weird.

    That is impressive. I wouldn't have a clue how to go about doing something like that.

    I believe that because it is only using the sensor and electronics from the nex-5 the viewfinder would work exactly like it would with film, seems like the original lens, shutter and viewfinder have been made to work with the nex-5 guts. Pretty cool to make your own digital range finder
