Has anyone tried the 5N with the Sigma 8-16 or 10-20? Just curious.

Thanks, Rich

They work great, but are bulky. The Sigma 8-16mm can't use filters. It is fairly small aperture, f/4.5-5.6, so at 16mm it is 2 stops smaller aperture than the Sony 16mm f/2.8, but performs a bit better. If you plan on doing a lot of shooting with that lens it would be better to have an SLR body for it I would expect, but it will work just fine on the NEX.
