I jumped in right at the start with the original NEX-5, as it seemed to be an exciting platform for Contax G lenses (which back then were a bargain for what they are), and because I believed (due to the large diameter of the mount) that cheap full frame E-mount bodies would eventually be produced.

Fortunately both gambols paid off. My Contax G lenses have been fabulous on the NEX's, and have increased considerably in value. The full frame bodies, while not truly cheap yet, are now here and will IMHO make an even better platform for the Contax G's (and friends I've added along the way).
