I own (and enjoy) a NEX-5N, but had an opportunity to use my manual focus CV lenses on a friend's NEX-7. I really enjoyed the camera but had some trouble getting used to the ergonomics of using the left side viewfinder and manually adjusting the focus and aperture on my lenses. I was thinking of getting a NEX-6 (because it is better suited for my 15 and 21 CV lenses), but now I'm not so sure. The ergonomics with a viewfinder on the 5N seem to make more sense to me.

Do others similar observations? Do you just live with it? Do you adjust?

Reverse the situation, and there I am.

I don't care for the optional EVF placement on a NEX-5N or other similar implementations. I am much more comfortable with it built-in to the upper left corner of the body like my film RFs.
