Nex has come a long way. I remember the guffaws and nimby which were not infrequent here in the first months of the n-5. The original is basically just as sharp with some light as is the 5n- though corner fix was a must with the cv skopars even the 35.
I knew nothing about RF glass when I bought the n5. First I bought Slr glass- the good stuff under 300. Kiron 28/2 etc bokina....
They were big---how could those tiny cvs compete?
But a few months around here and an encouraging band of nex lovers, I forgot about SLR glass.
That Kiron 28 cost me $90. My main squeeze today is the 28 summicron. Nex loves the thing.
But since I learned the meaning of 1.5x and apsc, I've craved a small ff.
