Just picked up an NEX-5, and I'm new to the system. I'm getting the two-lens kit (16 & 18-55).
What I'd like to add now are some fast manual-focus primes, but not sure what lenses work best on the NEX-5 with adapters.
Are there issues with wide-angle M mount lenses (such as on the mFT systems), where the edges get very soft?
I'm on a budget, so looking for good "value" picks. Would like some recommendations for the following:
- wide-angle landscape lens (something wider than the Sony 16mm lens)
- fast "normal" prime in the 30-50 range (effective 45-75mm range)
- fast portrait lens in the 50-70mm range (effective 75-100mm range)
If possible, would like all my "alternative" lenses to be of the same mount, to simplify packing a light kit that shares adapters.
