Clearly many of your are great fans of legacy lenses on the Sony NEX modelles. But since the NEX systeem does not offer in-body image stabilization, all these lenzes will be "unstabilized".
And as the TS already mentioned, many legacy lenzes have a large focal length.

Is this combination not a problem with hand shooting?

No, it is not. And that also is the way people used to take pictures before stabilisation was implemented...


That's right, it's never been a problem for me. Just remember to keep the shutter speed up there.

Now the NEX cameras have focus-peaking which makes up for that big-time. Makes it fast and easy to focus a manual lens; sometimes faster than auto-focus.
