Thanks Sean -- I'm really grateful for these tips from you, verybiglebowski, Henry, and everybody.

It's a huge amount of info to process, perhaps especially for somebody who came to NEX from point-and-shoot rather than from DSLR.

Here's the one thing I'd love a better understanding of -- most people seem to say rangefinder lenses longer than 35mm should "just work" on NEX -- but other folks say (for example) the 50mm Lux doesn't work well (at least not on NEX7).

I had been thinking something like the Lux could possibly be perfect -- I mostly like to capture points of interest within a scene, rather than big scenes, and I like evening social shots. Lux was seeming like something I could enjoy forever.

Is there any way to better understand whether I should abandon the Lux idea?

Thanks for sticking with me!
