It depends on if they are manual lenses, MC or MD. If so, you can buy an adapter on ebay for almost nothing. I believe these mc/md are the very best.

The few I have and have had were all MD mount, but it did vary a bit, so do your research.

Many of us love manual focusing on the NEX platform.  Not ideal for all things and all situations, but a lot of fun.  Takes some practice, but once you get it down, you'll love it.  You start having a few issues with stabilization in the 300+ range, but under that, you can hardly tell.

DP has a pretty good lens review portion.
