After using the 7 for a couple of weeks I must confess that depending on the situation I like the following lenses:

General Zoom: 16-50/f2.8 with LA-EA2

  • Great AF

  • Sharp

  • Good Handling

  • Very flexible

Wide Prime: Canon FDn 28/f2 with Novoflex Adapter

  • still pretty compact

  • fast aperture

  • good bokeh

  • Sharp from 2.8 onwards

Normal Prime: Contax G45/f2 with Kipon Adapter

  • So small and light

  • Sharpest Lens ever build imho

  • Perfect Zeiss Look & Rendering

Tele Prime: Contax G90/f2.8 with Kipon Adapter

  • Very light and small for 90mm with 2.8

  • Great Bokeh

  • Great Color and Micro Contrast

  • Sharp wide-open

For the Adapters:

  • Love the LA-EA2, handling is excellent and AF is super fast.

  • Kipon Contax G to NEX is really good build, smooth focus. (Had the Fotodiox Adapter before and can only say that its total crap - useless at least)

  • Novoflex Canon FD Adapter works like a charm - but too expensive.
