NEX 5 + Tokina 35 / 2.8 Macro + Novoflex Nik/NEX adaptor - ugly but cool!

Dear all,

having bought a NEX 5 + 16mm kit on monday, I received Sony's screen protector, 2nd Sony battery and the Novoflex adaptor (made in Germany...) yesterday. The adaptor's price is pretty high (€ 169,-), but it's well made.

It's a really ugly rig but the Tok has got this focus clutch which makes focussing feel nearly like a dampened MF-lens. Knowing the Tok will perform best @ f 5.6, I managed to mark the f-stop ring on the adaptor (the blue ring) at the position when the shutter speed went down two stops by turning the ring. The Tok is a G-type lens. The adaptor works fine with non G-lenses as well. In that case you simply use their f-stop ring.

I'll soon post real world photos of the combo in full res. I also got Nikkor AF-D 85 / 1.8 and AIs 50 / 1.8. But 35 mm on DX is my always-on-lens.

Best,

Markus
