    Thanks.

    For the statue shots I used the Nikon 100mm 2.8 Ais; all others with kit lens 18-55.

    I just got a 5N. Great camera. I love the sensor in it. Anyway, I would definitely recommend checking out the new Sigma 19mm f/2.8 for a wide/landscape lens. It's a good one, and for $199, it's a steal. I love focus peeking. A LOT. I plan to use the NEX system as my manual focus and legacy glass system. Manual focus is a dream.

    These were two of my first shots with this camera (and lens):

    Great images. That Sigma does look like a great alternative to the NEX wide pancake.

    I picked up a Pentax K-01 and I too am digging on focus peaking. The K-01 is pretty much silent when running this way... great for quiet places or for low light focusing.
