Why need adapter for NEX? should I have just bought a DSLR?
Sep 23, 2012

I am new at this, and I love the Nex 5n that I bought. But I am curious why buy a NEX if your going to put a clunky adapter to carry the big lenses. Why would one buy an adapter for the Nex to fit all different lenses, instead of just buying a A- mount or a DSLR in the first place?

I still wrestle with this in my mind, though I bought the NEX 5n, i LOVE it, I Love holding it, I never want to put it down, and it is by far the fastest camera and nicest camera I have ever bought, the sensor is bigger than M 4/3, that's why I got it. but I am curious? why the adapter?
