Nex-3 and old Nikon lenses

Nice shots man, if Sony doesn't release their 35mm f/1.8 this year, I may spring for
the Nikon 35 2 or maybe even 1.4. I'm surprised how close it focuses. We'll see.
The 35mm can focus at about 12 inches -- not a macro lens -- but some judicious cropping can make things look a most macro-esque. ;} Probably my best lens overall. Although my Series E 28mm is pretty decent, it's nowhere at the level of this.
Judicious cropping is a huge plus for digital sensors today. I was actually looking at the 28mm f/2.8 E as well for review, I may still consider it if I can get a cheap copy.
And the 100 f/2.8 would have been in my bag were it not for the excellent 105mm f/1.8
that just enticed me too much.
The 100mm is so small and light -- big compared to the series E 50mm, but small compared to the 35mm AIS. And it seems to do pretty well at f2.8. (I rarely see my considerably bigger 135mm -- as my eldest son usually appropriates it).
