Canon FD 50 1.4 SSC also in excellent condition...

As the title says, its a Like New Sony Nex 5n black. I bought it for traveling, but I haven't really traveled much. I have only taken about 100-150 pics with it, mostly just testing it out. I have no real reasons to keep it around, but...
yes, i think having an adapter with a tripod mount would actually be a very nice idea and would be useful with some of these longer heavier lenses, it would sure make the balance point on a tripod better for the big viv.
if i am carrying it around, i usually carry it by the lens, or have the lens pointing down. but i don't really worry about the heft on the epl1, its a solid connection and it hasn't really bothered me much.
congratulations its a heck of a sharp lens with great build quality, you will enjoy
Congrats Ad. that is a great camera. I am looking forward to seeing some examples when you get it!
@Rider - despite a nominal increase in MP early reports show that the new Panny sensor does better than the older sensor. it handles noise just as good or better, but the big news is the dynamic...
the optical design between the ltm and kiev mount are not different.
so that will not make any difference. they were made for a long time, and glass formulas and coatings changed across time and across plants. also i think the later models had a more circular aperture when stop down vs the old...
as ST mentioned i shoot the kiron viv 105 macro and a fd 1.4.
basically my mf workflow is; using non-magnified view focus as close as i can, then pop down to magnified view for critical focus, then pop back out to confirm framing is still good and fire.
i think that is pretty much the only way...
for something not too expensive, and a nice cam to lend the girlfriend. and being used to canon, as others have mentioned the s90 is a great cam, and since its been replaced, you may be able to find a cheap used/refurbished unit.
another good choice would be the sd4000, not quite as good in low...
the ep2 screen is bigger for sure. but for me i have no problem with the epl1 lcd. i will still get the vf soon.
but i have been shooting alot of mf lenses, and have never had a problem getting critical focus on the epl1 on the lcd. the dedicated magnified view button is quite handy too.
Just got my Panny 20 1.7 in the mail tonite after work. Just had time to head down to the local preserve before it got dark. Was really windy today, so was relegated to shooting inside the timber.

I like the mono treatment. Definitely always a safe bet when doing some street shooting. Many of these are a bit too busy, they work nicely for documenting the event.
That said the 4th one up from the bottom is a really nice street shot of the guy waiting on the step, great expression, good...
For true macro, you will not want to use AF anyway, this opens up a ton of options in the manual focus macro lens department, and to be honest most macro lenses are great.
a few of note.

I have been participating in photography forums for a long time now, and been an avid photographer since 15.
Added m4/3 to my arsenal in April with an EPL1. Currently have the kit and 20 1.7, as well as some FD lenses and adapter including a Kiron made Viv Series 1 105 2.5...
