Bullish on Sony

Yeah, my printer only goes to 13x19, or just over A3, and, as I mentioned earlier, it is tough to tell which camera I used for the several prints around my house. As long as PPI is in the 200s, I find it difficult to tell a difference. Plus, if you don't use a tripod, some of the advantage of the higher megapixel camera is nullified. Right now, I kinda of treat my X100 as a 35mm replacement and my Nex-7 as a medium format replacement.

Even though the NEX-7 doesn't perform well with my M mount wides, I'm still bullish on the NEX-7. I never used a NEX-5n, so I can't comment, only that the user interface and EVF of the 7 is important to me. I also think I'm not missing anything yet as far as Fuji is concerned.

I too have a Contax 45 Planar, but haven't used it yet, as it is being Leica-fied by Mr. Hawk in case Leica comes out with something new or the M9 prices get to my price point. I have a Zeiss postwar 50/1.5 Sonnar that I'm working with for portraits. I'd like a 75mm for the longer end. The Sigma 30 fills the normal lens spot. It's the short end that is the challenge. I suppose its time to try the Sigma 19.

If you get a chance, try the C3. The difference (7 and C3 with M lenses) is HUGE. I even put up with the shot gun shutter in the C3 along with the lack of EVF.

JimBuchanan: the Sigma 19mm is a lovely little lens and cheap too. I think you'd be pleasantly surprised and find it more than acceptable.
