NEX-5N with an adapted manual lens?
Jul 19, 2012

Hi everyone,

I will receive my NEX-5N in a few days and like to learn in advance. Plan to use an adapter to mount my Pentax A50/1.7 lens, obviously manual focus but what about aperture control? Say I want to shoot with f/4.0 , can I turn the lens' aperture ring to 4.0 and let the camera do automatic light metering & shutter speed, or do I have to do AEL stopdown (whatever that means I don't have a clue). What shooting mode must I set the 5N to? Many thanks for your advice.

Sony Alpha NEX-5N
