I have an NEX6 and:

Olympus Zuiko OM 24mm 22.8, 35mm 2, 50mm 1.4, 85mm 2, 135mm 3.5.

NEX 16mm, 16-50mm, 18-200mm, 18-55mm.

Various Canon lenses.

But I've just received a Speed Booster and bought the Canon 40mm 2.8 which becomes about a 42mm 2.0 and I'm loving it. Very cheap for the 40mm, $180NZ, sharp and fast. Also absolutely crazy about the Speed Booster, all my Zuikos now have a new lease on life and I feel as if I'm carrying around this ninja full frame camera with me.

I shoot video as a job but photographs for fun and this kit works both ways. My FS100 is used for interviews and my NEX6 for everything else. A pouch hooked over my pants and a monopod and manual focus with focus peaking and the footage is stunning. I'm finally in my "happy place"!

TMI? : )
