Re: All purpose lens set for beginner?

One other thought/question which is a bit hypothetical and off topic regarding the NEX vs. DSLR question.  As I understand it, although the E mount lens line is still a bit weak, one could buy the Sony adapter and then use Sony Alpha lenses with full autofocus.  I realize the adapter is on the expensive side and the whole concept of using an adapter and Alpha lenses is contrary to the compact NEX philoso[hy, but is there any other disadvantage?  In other words, would doing something like that give someone the best of both worlds -- a compact NEX system and a larger DSLR-like system to be used when desired?
