Re: How do legacy 300mm+ lenses do on Nex system?

I have the Vivitar 18-200mm and I've just today bought a Sigma 70-300mm.

The big problem with the Vivitar is flare, but I also find that the combined focus/zoom ring is a problem. The Sigma, with separate controls, makes it easier to focus and then fine-tune framing with the zoom.
