Andrew am I correct your Voigtlander 12mm is the M mount and not the SL (F mount) version?

What adapter do you use?

I have three adapters in the M-Emount. I shimmed two of them to reach infinity, the third is very close. I will be putting them up for sale today as I have a GH2 arriving.

My 12mm is the screw mount with an M adapter on it. I went with the screw mount so that I could attach filters to it.

Let me know if you are looking for adapters, as I have a bunch...

For those who may be interested in how NEX's size would be when attaching ZF lens. Image of NEX with ZF35 + Novoflex, sitting next to ZF21 + D700

Hmm, both the ZM 18mm and ZM 25mm are on my local CL board at pretty good prices...

Cool shots, sebboh, but you have some pretty noticeable spots you may want to clone out (or get a sensor/lens cleaning)...

yeah, old shot. i noticed those right after i uploaded and was too lazy to reupload after cloning them out. some of the others had a few too, i just noticed those in time. i do seem to be getting quite a bit of dust on my sensor with the NEX. does anybody have any suggestions for cheap and safe sensor cleaning solutions? in the past i've either had someone else clean it for me or never needed to clean the sensor (yay olympus).

Rumors has it that the Zeiss lens for NEX will be a 24/1.7. I hope its image quality is at least an equal to ZM25.

A few from the ZM25 and NEX5 combo.

These are excellent, wyan! Not just technically speaking, either - fascinating subjects also.

Although I love using Nikkor's on the NEX-5, images from Zeiss lenses like your ZM25 are really tempting me to look in that direction.

Wyan - +1 to mnscott. Great photos. Did you use cornerfix, or you have not had the need for it with ZM25 ?

Thanks, Scott. Thanks Akul. No need for my copy.

Here's one shot about an hour ago. Turns out the Nikon 50/1.4 AF-D makes a nice doggie portrait lens on the NEX-5!

Delightful set, wyan! The first and one before last are my faves.

I have noticed more people shooting with the NEX 5 vs. the 3 - any reason why (video aside...)? The NEX 3 looks to be pretty capable.

I choose the NEX-5 mostly because of the magnesium body and the IR remote option. There isn't a remote release option for the NEX-3, wired or wireless.

Smaller and lighter, strong and solid magnesium alloy construction, tilt-able LCD, higher video spec, ability to use wireless remote. All worth the additional $100 to me.

i chose the NEX-3 because it was more than $150 cheaper for me (the big reason), i actually prefer mp4 and 720p for my video needs and it seemed like it might fit in a pocket better without a lens (smaller grip). the only thing i miss is ir remote capability - shooting in bulb mode is impossible with the NEX-3.

because you have to physically hold the shutter release open? that must be a nightmare.

Versailles' Trianon gardens, after sunset. Nex 5 and Zeiss ZM 35C Biogon f:2.8.
Incidentally, I purchased for this camera a very light and cheap tripod. That lets me shoot inplaces where my 5D II and large tripod would definitely be forbidden...
