Hi Phoenix,
Great pictures and which camera did you use to took these pictures?
If you will share some details with these pictures it will be helpful for us to know some details about them. Thanks in advance for any input.

I also purchased my NEX with the intention of using legacy lenses. I ordered some adapters and more are on their way. I wanted to try them out but it is dark in the morning, and dark on the way home, so I could only do a quick shot in our parking lot at work

Nex-5n, with Zeiss Planar 50/1.4 160 sec F8 ISO:320 (I think)

I also took one at home with one pole lamp, not very much light

Hi Bob

While not having owned one I have always heard that the Planar 50 1.4 is one very sharp lens, based on your 2 photos, looks like what I heard about it was true. At F8 I can understand the sharpness but on the second photo wide open at 1.4 it doesnt lose any of the sharpness at all (the camera engravings), you just get a shallower DOF and (imho) a pleasant bokeh.

I personally like using 50mm lenses as portrait lenses, due to the NEX's crop a 50mm translates to a 75mm (I love using this focal for portraiture, I know some people prefer a longer focal but that's just me) and there are a lot of affordable super fast (1.4) 50mm legacy lenses in the market.

Which other legacy lenses are you planning to use for the NEX?

Looks like we'll be expecting a lot from you ;)

Thats a really good collection of wonderfully interesting and truly drool worthy lenses! Its a bit of a pity about the mount orientation of the 21mm Color Skopar, but I'm sure you will get good images out of it.

We're looking forward to the images you post from your lenses :)

Phoenix:

My LM-->NEX adapter arrived yesterday and I remembered that I had a LTM Nikkor 3.5cm 2.5 screw mount lens. I also have Leica LTM to M adapters so I snapped it on but there is a problem with the infinity lock pin hitting the backplate so you have to unscrew the adapter so that the pin can clear the "cam". so disappointing as that is a great lens and small too.

My 21mm Voightlander color-skopar is LTM so I put it on the LTM-->M adapter and then used the LM --> NEX and now the lens mounts in the correct orientation with the aperature ring and DOF scale on top of the lens. There is no infinity lock on this lens so now it fits perfectly, plus the focus lever is on the bottom where it should be. I am a bit disappointed in the wide open low light shots, noticeably not as good as the Zeiss 50mm 1.4 (wide open). I've also got a Nikkor 50mm 1.4 LTM somewhere and I will test it against the SMC Takumar 50mm 1.4 M42

I also tested my Nikkor 105mm 2.5 Ai using the Ai--> NEX adapter and it is awesome, very sharp wide open, perhaps very close to my Leica 90mm 2.8 Elmar, all shot wide open. I also have 35mm 1.4 Summilux and summicrons in my stash but it is too dark on weekdays to test them out.

Once I figure out which primes I am going to use in my KIT, then I will be off to snap some photos.

happy shooting
bob

Wow... that ZP 50 1.4 is great... Very good sharpness at the camera engravings... And nice colour... Its a pity the framing with the below cut...

Looks like the bull's about to trample you. Not a bad metaphor for the current state of the financial world. Maybe, if they were being more honest they would put the bull away for a while and put a bear out there instead.
