Maybe only for macro

Erik, I have a Sigma 150mm, f/2.8

For wildlife reach, that 150mm on a V1 would give the same view as a 270mm on the NEX but with only 10MP. A Sony DT 55-300mm F4.5-5.6 SAM + LA-EA1 would give you more reach for the same cost.  Or better yet, the Nikon 55-300mm VR for yor Nikon wold get you reach and stabilization for less than the v1 combo  You'd really want to try the AF with legacy lenses for each adapter to see how practical they really are.
