    I had saved / properly stored 3/4 of these lenses since my film days ended back in the late 80's, and I've added a few since re-engaging photography as my main retirement hobby now. For my interests in nature / wildlife photography, I couldn't be more pleased with their performance on the NEX-7. All manual of course, but using them for the past year has forced me to learn more about & how to manage exposure than I ever knew. And tips from forums like this one have been very helpful along the way.
