Re: [007peter] MF lens is a none-argument for canon/nikon dSLR

sorry, but sticking a cheap corrective lens and adapter on a dslr and often losing the ability to focus at long distances and suffering bad vinetting, etc. is not a great argument.

you also don't get focus peaking and other great manual focus tools because the nikon/canon dslrs are often very stripped down.

nex also now adapters that turn canon/nikon lenses into faster aperture lenses without quality loss.  this of course is impossible to do on a dslr.

for everyone else go over to the nex forum and search on 'legacy lens'.  you will find hundreds of people who now use those formerly discarded lenses (because they do not work well on dslrs like peter claims) who get incredible results.  here is a great example...
