Re: Is there a primer for NEX and manual lenses?

All adapters for a particular mount type are the same size. There's no magic to it: it's the difference between the 18mm registration of the E-mount and whatever the registration distance is of the mount being adapted. For instance, Leica and Contax have registrations pretty close to 29mm, so NEX to Leica and NEX to Contax adapters are all about 11mm thick.
