ultra wide: sony E 16/2.8.
considering the cv 15/4.5 depending on which body i replace my dying NEX-3 with.

wide: rokkor 24/2.8.
am looking to get the zm 18/4 and either the ZA 24/1.8 and contax g 28/2.8 or the 28 cron.

normal: currently i just have the c/y 35/1.4.
will probably add a cv 35/2.5 (and one of the 28s from above).

portrait: pen f 42/1.2, contax g 45/2, jupiter-3, rokkor MC PG 50/1.4, rokkor MC PF 55/1.7.
i really don't need anymore, but i wouldn't turn down a lux.

telephoto: OM 85/2, nikkor 105/2.5 ais, rokkor MC PF 135/2.8.
i'll probably sell the OM and might get pentax 77/1.8 or contax g 90/2.8, but i don't really need anything in that focal length...

I'm wanting a fast 1.4 lens but that seems to cost the car in M-mount

Any reason LTM is off the list?
Jupiter 3 is close to what you want, and Canon has one as well, just a thought.

If I have an adapter that will allow me to mount it on then I will use.

Generally I bought the NEX to use with all old FD glass from the 7.5 FE upto and including the 150-600L. It looks funny when attached to the big white zoom lens mounted on the tripod.

FD's, Hexanons, Rokkors, and Canon RF are my main reasons.

Sony E 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6...









... and that's it so far. But I hope to be getting more. The camera is more or less permanently owned by my wife but I'm using it from time to time, and I want her to be making the best pictures she can (that's also a bit of extra income, and I want her to be happy). Plus I want to buy a NEX-7 sometime to carry around.

I think I am clear about my lineup now, just need th cash

- ZM18/4 ( still to be aquired )
- ZM35/2
- Elmar90/4

For low light portrait, a C/Y 50/1.4 Planar might help out. The jury is also out for two old Contax Sonnars : 50/2 and 85/2, but I feel like they need a little service before I do something serious with them.

Regards, Stefan

I have the 5N and twin lens kit, plus the following:

Rokkor 50mm PG 1.4

Rokkor MC W PG 35mm 2.8

Rokkor MC Tele QD 135mm 3.5

Tokina AT-X 90 f2 Macro (olympus mount)

Olympus OM Zuiko 21mm 3.5

I haven't used the Olympus and Tokina yet, as I'm still awaiting adapter.

Currently the Rokkor 50 and 35mm get the most use of the lenses I have. Really looking forward to using the wide 21mm Olympus 21mm.

I think I have most bases covered, will wait and see.

I'm currently trying to build my kit, as I wait for my Nex-7 to arrive, and I'm curious what made you pick the CV 35/1.2 over the other 35 options (ZM 35/2, CV 35/1.4, etc.). I'm afraid the CV 35/1.2 will be too heavy/big for daily use. Do you find that to be the case, or does it work well on your Nex-7?

Well,I do have the Contax C/Y 28, 50 1.7 and the 85 2.8. The 85 is not on par with the optical quality of the two first, neither on the Nex 5n, nor on the 5D2...maybe just me copy, but itīs MUCH softer...

On another thread, some people are saying they have found their lens lineup for NEX, so what is your lineup? What are you looking for?

Mine currently:
18-55 + 16 + FE
CY 35-70 + 28/2.8 + 135/3.5
G90 + G45
OM 50/1.2 + 28/2.8

Not sure if I will keep the G's due to overlap. I'd like to fill the UWA slot, hopefully with a native NEX AF lens in 2012. I love the G90, but am considering replacing with a CY85/2.8, as I could enjoy it on my 5D2.

My Kit:

16mm Sony
18-55mm Sony
35mm F2 Zeiss ZF
35mm F1.4 Voigtlander SC
50mm F2 Leica Summicron-M
90mm Contax G
100mm F2 Zeiss ZF Makro

would like to add something in the 24-25mm to give me that 35mm equivalent that i love on full frame but i'm not yet sold on the Sony Zeiss 24mm.

my "other" camera is a Pentax K5
on the NEX-5N i enjoy:
16mm Sony
18-55mm Sony
25mm F2.8 Zeiss ZK
50mm MP Zeiss ZK
Rokenon 85mm F1.4

i use an Ebay tilt adapter to mount the K lenses on the NEX and i am absolutely wallowing in how much fun the focus zoom makes playing with the tilt.

NEX 5N +

CV 15/4.5
CV 25/2.5
CV 90/3.5


That's my setup. I also own the 18-55 kit lens, but rarely use it. I also have the CV 40/1.4 which I use less than I should. I really like this lens, but the FL (and MFD) don't suit me too well, other than for portraits. I'm going to give the Pen F 40/1.4 a try one of these days.

NEX-5N

Sony 18-55 AF
Contax G 28
Contax G 45
Contax G 90

Wish List (in order of priority): CV 15, Contax G 21, Contax CY 100-300, Contax CY 35-70 or Contax G 35-70 (undecided), Zeiss 100 MP, Bargain fast 135

The lens I am most dreaming of: Zeiss Nex E-mount 16-50 (or even 16-80) with true "Zeiss" microcontrast and sharpness character.

I would pay $1500+ for such a lens.

Contax G 21
Contax G 28
Contax G 35
Contax G 45
Contax G 90
CV 15
With tilt adapters: ZF 25/2.8, ZF 35/2.0, ZF 50/1.4, ZF 50/2 MP, ZF 100/2 MP, CZJ MC 35/2.4, CZJ MC 20/2.8, Takumar 50/1.4, CV 58/1.4

Man, Lotusm50, with that lineup, I'd say go ahead and just get the 5N + EVF and be done with it. The 15, 21, 28 and (probably) 35 will likely all have more consistent performance across the frame on the 5N.

So far a 5N with:
- Sony 16 2.8
- Canon FD 35 2.0
- Olympus 50 2.0
- Minolta 58 1.2
- Zeiss 100 3.5
