NEX7 + adapters + better lenses = + IQ
Mar 23, 2013

I shoot with 2 5DII and a 60D and plenty of those fine Canon L lenses. Using the NEX7 over many months I became impressed with the 24 Mp sensor in the Sony. It was limited by the quality of E mount Sony lenses. After reading reviews I decided to get the EA2 adapter and the 16-80 Zeiss lens. What a revelation. The IQ equals what I get with my Canon DSLRs. I added a 50 mm Sigma macro and it gives very good flower photos. Quick focuses as well.

In addition I got the Metabones smart adapter for my Canon lenses. I tried the 70-300L lens on it and it gave more detail than the 60D. Will try it soon with my 500mm lens. I will post samples later.
