Nex 5N maximum lens weight allowed before CRACK
May 22, 2012

Hi all, after buying an adapter for my legacy manual focus lenses now when I place my nex 5n on a tripod I'm asking myself if it would crack for the weight.

What do you think is maximum weight allowed by the camera? I've got the same feeling of fear when I hold it in my hands, with the adapter, a teleconverter 2x and a tele zoom attached to it , a combination that weights almost 700 grams. It is not so much in terms of lens weight... but it seems to be so for the nex while you hold it and the lens becomes to be heavy and quite long.

I wouldn't use adapters with tripod mounts on them and in near future I would like to buy heavier lenses...

Well, when do you think it could seriously crack? what are your experiences? thanks
