Dear Dr. Tawfik,

I previously compared a D800E with a bunch of 300mm lenses to the Nex-7 with the Tamron 18-200mm zoom set at 200mm (260mm effective). The Nex-7 equaled the performance of the best D800E combination. Here is the post:

A few days ago I tested my D800E with a variety of 500mm lenses including the Bigma 50-500, the Nikon 80-400 plus 1.4X extender, and a 500mm fixed Mamiya 645 lens.. But using the Nex-7 with the Sony SAL 70-400mm zoom set at 380mm (effective 500mm) gave by far the best results. I used the EA1 adapter and manual focus with the Sony zoom.

Regards,
