Hi everybody!

Thought I'd check in as a soon to be fellow Nex user.

I thought they looked intriguing when they were first released but didn't really think I needed one as I was quite happy lugging my D300 and assorted kit around with me. However, as the owner of too many cameras[!] I have a lot of legacy glass in FD, M42, M39 and Praktica B mounts, and whilst I still like playing with film, I started looking out for a digital solution for them and the Nex system seems to really fit the bill.

Following an eBay raid then, I've got the 18-55 kit lens with hood and flash sitting in front of me with a Nex 3 due to arrive in the next day or two. I've also stumped up for a Sigma 30mm f/2.8 and adapters for my legacy lenses.

Can't wait to put them all through their paces!

Cheers,
Ben

Thanks again guys. The body, flash, 18-55 and Siggy are all now here, just waiting on the adapters. Initial impressions with the Sigma are looking very promising!
