If you're seeking a 105/2.5-equivalent for the NEX and are willing to manually focus, an LTM-NEX adapter and the LTM-mount Voigtlander Color-Heliar 75mm f2.5 will provide a 112mm equivalent. It's a super compact lens (unlike the huge NEX native lenses), provides good contrast and sharpness, and is smooth to focus.

I use one on my NEX-5 (whenever I can tear my "custom pancake" 30mm f1.9 Hexanon off) and it's a super combo for portraiture.

+1

there's one of these at RFF for 260 right now--wonderful lens, and far better than any sharp plastic AF---it can do sharp, but it's very nice wide open

best protrait lens for nex?

here's mine, in a class by itself:

Sony will never match theses lenses for portraits, nor anyone else.
