NEXs and legacy lenses?
Dec 18, 2011

How are legacy lenses on NEX bodies? Is this a good thing? Does it defeat the purpose of going to NEXs if reduced size and weight was one of the main reasons for NEXing in the first place? Are there suggested legacy lens candidates for any possible NEX + legacy lens marriage?
Are things totally manual? Is the camera able to read any info from the lens?
And most important of all..........is this a practical thing to consider?

I'm still trying to decide if going to NEX or m4/3rds is the way for me to go, as I consider ridding myself of the DSLR gear. What might you suggest as the most economical way to get into the NEX system? (Camera model and lens?)
Thanks much.....
