NEX3/5/5n + Sigma 30mm f/1.4

Anyone using this combo? How's it working out for you?

(I know it's sounds like a weird, unbalanced, Frankenstein-type setup, but ...)

Was my go-to lens on a recent trip to Thailand.. the predominant choice when I shot a wedding there aswell... on the 5N that is. (Yes I shot a wedding with the 5N and manual glass and apart from looking really unprofessional everything went really well!)

PS That Sigma is a really nice little(Sony version is smaller because of non HSM) lens and tak sharp at 1.4 quite the bargain imo.

What kind of adapter you need to connect this Sigma to the Nex? A Sony adapter?

Depends on which mount of the Sigma lens you have.

A note about the Sigma. Very sharp in the center of the frame, even good wide open. It is a great people lens, I loved mine when shooting weddings.

What it is not good for are corners. The corners never get sharp on APS-C sized sensor. This is a non issue if you shoot more central subjects, etc.
