Love it so far. Upgraded from S95. Manual lens is fun to use.

Very sexy looking.

Personally I don't like to use any camera without and EVF or hot shoe, and can not be without an EVF for manual lenses ,  but I still like the looks of this .

I wish you could configure the EVF to be MF assist and the LCD to be normal view.  Sigh.

Re: all the parts finally arrived :)

Can you give a rundown on what you have their lens / adaptor  specifics

I am a rookie and trying to learn  and a Manual lens would keep me working on that.

Very nice looking setup as said  "sexy"

Looks like Hawk's M to NEX adaptor and a Minolta M-Rokkor 40mm f/2.

Re: all the parts finally arrived :)

Puddleglum got it right. I love the hawk adapter because it extends the focus range down to about 12". And the lens is incredible. This is my first interchangeable lens camera, and I had no idea what a difference lens could make. The sharpness and...I dont know, "quality" of the images I get vs. the 16mm Sony is incredible.

The manual lens is great on this camera. It allows manual shutter and aperture, but auto iso, a combination not possible with the Sony lenses. I actually find it much faster to adjust aperture using the ring on the lens than thru the menu with an auto lens.

I highly recommend the camera and other parts as well. Like others have said, the touch screen is not good. I've deactivated it. Other than that I find the control layout great and you can customize the fn button extensively.

I also like that it has in-camera charging, because you can still buy a wall charger for the battery (I already have), and have the convenience of charging from your laptop. When traveling, the fewer items to carry, the better.

Only the most recent 2 are with NEX, and both with the 16mm.
