    I know this isn't a m43 camera but figured some might be interested in viewing pics taken with it and a great Konica AR lens.

    I'm interested! It looks amazingly sharp. Have you tried any other Hex. lenses on the NEX?

    I've shot off a few with my 135mm 3.2, 28mm 3.5, and 50mm 1.4. I'll Post a few more in the coming days.

    the depth of field effects are obvious with the sensor size, but the pictures come up lovely none the less! nice combo kappa, and nice shot :)

    What do you mean? These were shot at F8 I believe not wide open.

    The larger the sensor, the smaller the aperture to limit the shallow dof, F8 on a 4/3 sensor will keep allot of the photo in focus. While on APS-C F11-13 will let you keep more of the shot in focus. F8 on a aps-c is about the same dof as f5 on m4/3

    On a FF sensor you are talking about f18-f22 to get rid of the shallow dof effect.

    I understand that premise. What I don't understand is the comment. Perhaps a suggestion to shoot with a wider aperture? If so, i can agree with that... however it would have made focusing infinitely harder since my model can't seem to hold a pose for more than a split second!

    Thanks for the compliments. It was a looooong 3 weeks waiting for the adapter to arrive from china.

    Very detailed picture.
    Just imagine if they'd had the sense to include an EVF?

    sorry i realise in my flu-like state that my comment is a bit funny. no suggestion to shoot with a smaller aperture to get more in focus, just a statement that the larger sensor gives a greater depth of field at the same aperture (relative to a m4/3 sensor)

    i really like this shot! so sharp :)
