Just posted! Our preview samples gallery from the Sony Alpha NEX-5. We have just received a production sample NEX-5, and decided to venture out of the office for a saunter around London in the spring sunshine to bring you a quick gallery. All the images have been shot with the optically stabilized 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 kit zoom lens. The gallery includes a mix of shots using various ISOs and under different lighting conditions. We've even added a video to watch and download. UPDATE: When we produced this sample gallery we were told that the E 16mm F2.8 lens we were using was a production sample. However, Sony has today (May 18th) informed us that all E 16mm F2.8 lens in circulation are not of production specification and image quality should not be taken as indicative of final production quality.
