Guess not

I've just recently started to use this new lens set-up. Ii's a bit unusuall but quite effective.

There are thousands of "usual" lenses that work on a NEX-5 and you want us to guess an unusual set-up based on low-resolution images... there's a much better chance of guessing your birthday -- and I've been doing some lens forensics work. Getting more technical about it, there is a lot of DoF and there isn't a lot of focus blur, but the OOF PSF looks fairly circular with a moderately bright edge. Both suggest a retrofocal wide angle is most likely.

In fact, it looks pretty kit zoomish to me. Maybe with a +1 close-up lens or similar, but the focus isn't really all that close (that spider is big, judging by the flies). Certainly, although the photos are fine, whatever lens configuration you used did not result in anything all that distinctive. Hope it didn't cost you much....
