It does that until you update the lens firmware to version 02.

I just checked and it says you can’t update the lens software with a NEX 5. Maybe it’s just not compatible. bill

Borrow an A6xxx from a friend and use it to update the lens. Sony says the lens is compatible with your body, but there are some small issues with the aperture ring.

Parenthetically, I would note that this is a pretty large lens for the NEX 5 body.
