Nex5, Om and leica M lenses/adapter.
Same here, love the OM lenses - small and compact.
I have 7 (old) legacy OM lenses getting a new lease on life.

just bought a nex5 + 16 2.8kit.
i bought 2kiwi adapterto use with few Olympus om lenses (28 2.8, 50 1.8, 100 2.8, 135 3.5)
adapter are not so cheap (some like 40$ each here in europe) but quality is not so good.
are all metal, not so well finished, om lenses lock firmly, but you need a good pressionto lock the lens in the adapter.
100 and135work great, 50 is great too, but infinity focus it seem to me a little short, but not really a problem. 28 mm it seem short to infinity, one of the 2 adapter it seem a little better than the other.
i bought the kiwi, hoping for a better quality on an "unlabeled" cheap chinese adapter, but may be i have the same quality.
i bought even a metabones adapter for leicaM, i use it with a summicron 35.
it's great. quality and finition are great, it lock firmly and precise on camera and lenses, focus go a little beyond infinity, and it's really nice to see.
here u can see some holydays shots with omlenses (and 2 withthe 16 2.8)
om lenses are really good and compact (even if show some CA, specially the 100 wide open) so bad they need an adapter almost 3 cm long
