the only problem for me sometimes is that there is no ae lock on the nex. hope sony gives one on the next model. because i use manual focus lens on the nex i can work around the problem by half press shutter when pointing the camera at the correct exposure and then while half press focus the lens at the desired focus point.

needs some practise and i took quite some time to do it the first time.

It is a bit tricky to hold the half-press, but if you can do it, you can take multiple shots with the same exposure (and focus, which may or may not be desirable). I think this will work great for me if I want to manually take photos for a panorama.

I wouldn't be against AE Lock being added as a Custom option. I would probably just use the half-press method, though, myself.
