The Sony NEX 5N is a camera I had not used for a while (my wife is now using it as her main camera), so you are not going to see many pictures from the NEX at the future ! It’s a wonderful camera and the fact that I can use my Leica and Voigtlander lenses makes it even more attractive. The Elmarit is a superb lens, and acts as 42mm on the NEX. Still, I prefer to use this lens on my Leica M8, and use more on the NEX lenses like the Voigtlander 50mm f/1.1 or the Leica Tele-Elmarit 90mm f/2.8, since the focus peaking gives me more consistent results from those I get from the rangefinder.

The NEX A7 is on the way, and despite being a very exciting camera, I wont be upgrading (since I would have to sell something, and for now this is something that’s not going to happen !).
