Keep in mind that FF SLR lenses are much more likely to give good IQ on a FF NEX, if that's in your future. Pen lenses will not even cover, and rangefinder lenses will probably have bad corners due to sharper rear projection angles for light hitting the sensor.

The Pen F lenses certainly cover the APS-C frame on a Nex.  I use them and lots of people do.  There is no cropping or vignetting.  On the 5/6 sensor, there is no issue with corner angles.

Did you read my text you quoted?  I said they will not cover and give good corners on a future FF NEX.

For what it's worth, the Pen F was a half frame, 18x24mm, whicb is actually slightly larger than APS-C. I would expect them to be fine lenses for APS-C, although the pricing is not particularly competitive with other old lenses and they are not all that common (there were not a lot of Pens sold).
