I picked up another non-native lens for the NEX-7. Soligor 200mm f2.8 in Minolta mount for about $150 . The lens is in fantastic condition and feels very solid. It came with a nifty leather carrying case... For my longer length shots I've been using the Sony SEL 18-200mm 3.5/6.3. It does have stabilization but is slow on the long end which requires me to shoot a higher ISO than I want for sports/action shots (especially when indoors). I'll be comparing the two over the next few weeks. I did manage to take a few shots of hanging flowers on my deck as the sun was setting. I did some PP in LR and what I found was that I had to add a decent amount of contrast, but overall I'm pleased with these first results. The third shot I believe was in f/4 while the rest at f/2.8. The big test for this lens will be on Saturday at my daughter's dance recital.
