The Camera Collection
I jumped out of the Nikon stuffings because i wanted something lighter and thats when i tried out a Panasonic GF 2.
After buying the GF2 for about 2 days, i went to @kodomut’s house and he deeply poisoned me with his Sony Nex 5n… Especially with the 16mm and its W/A + Fisheye converters.
The good thing about the NEX is really, the APS-C sensor with 1.5x crop. The m43s are not usable because a 50mm like this 1 here (Down), will become 100mm and thats just really not suitable for me.
I still use my NIKKORs and Sigma F mounts on my NEX system with this adaptor thingy.
The NEX lenses which i currently own:
(From back to Front)
SEL 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS
SEL 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 PowerZoom OSS
16mm Fisheye Converter
SEL 16mm f/2.8
This 16mm is really controversial as its not exactly sharp or anything. But if you put the Wide Angle adaptor or the Fisheye adaptor, it can really perform as a entry level wide angle lens.
The NEX 6 kit lens, most of my AFA shots were shot on this.
The NEX 5’S kit lens. Average lens imo!
The LA-EA 2 NEX -> Alpha Adaptor. Thats for the latter part of my camera upgrade plan. But I’m using the Minolta 35-70mm f/4.0 on it ATM.
Yes, loads of spare batteries. Well, 1 draw back about using the NEX system is that its all electronic and it drains the battery SUPER FAST. When compared to the standard DSLR. I bought my batteries from Hong Kong where its like SGD $130 for 2 pieces. In Singapore its actually SGD $120 for 1 <- super over priced!!
