    Cool, thanks for sharing. I also have a 5N and just bought a 16mm pancake. These are the type of results I'm hoping for.

    Like to see that other people also like their 16mm, can't understand why some people seem to hate it... ;-)

    I think it's a follow the leader thing, give a dog a bad name and everybody does,without much evidence or trial.The 16mm does a great job in certain aspects,ie shooting from the hip photojourmalism, with the adaptor even better,and for video the 16 with adaptor is just great .

    use camera equipment as with all equipment, too their strengths not their weaknesses and you will get good results.
    I've seen some absolutely abysmal shots with a top of the range leica and superb shots with a point and shoot.
    once you find out the strengths ,weakness and limitations of a camera or lens then you can work to that,
    a world record 100 mtr sprinter would never beat a world record 5000 mtr runner or vice versa in their opposite disciplines.
    Who is the best runner of the two ?

    Many dismiss the 16mm, but it seems to be working for you quite well.

    as I was saying previously,trying to get the best out of your equipment, and recognising it's strengths, this was a photo I took in London with a mobile phone, samsung galaxy 11. I was working on a site and cameras were not allowed onsite,so I made the best out of what I had, a bit wonky but not too bad,

    This is one thing I realized during my ongoing 365 days project with NEX-3 (The very first entry level NEX model). Know your equipments strength and use it to the best
