    We seem to have quite a few people here that use rangefinder lenses on the NEX, myself included. I thought it might be interesting to start a thread to share what lenses we use, what adapters, and even share some sample images taken with these lenses. So, if you use a rangefinder lens, jump in and tell us about it. Over time it would be nice if this thread turned into a nice reference for current and future NEX users interested in these lenses.

    I also use RF lenses on my Nex-3.
    I have the following Adp's
    Fotodiox Lm-nex-- Not all my M mounts lenses fit tight....
    Rainbow Lm-nex-- All the lenses fit ok.
    Rainbow L39-Nex-- Ok
    Kipon Alpa-Nex--Lenses fit fine, however the lenses do not sit aligned properly. Alpa lenses have a external shutter release button that match up with the Alpa Camera body. So it looks a little strange with the shutter release button at a slight angle. But the adp fits on the Sony tight and the lenses do not wobble.
    Alpa camera bodies had the shortest lens flange to film distance so they made alot of lens mount adp to put Nikon, Pentax, Leica R, and other
    lenses on their camera bodies.
