    NEX-5 + A-E + Minolta 200 f2.8 handheld

    Quick snapshot/Experiments to handhold Minolta 200 f2.8 on NEX.
    It is tricky to do manual focusing and shoot without stabilization. Focusing is tricky but NEX-5 UI for manual focusing is excellent, as is the LCD in bright light. Live histogram makes life easier. Everything is shot in auto-ISO, Aperture priority. Overall it is an interesting option. Tommorow I will try and test 70-400 and 500 mirror.

    Probably . . . . but I want Aperture support for the RAW files FIRST this time!
    So the ball is firmly in Apple's court. . . . . actually, I could live with Adobe DNG converter making DNG files that Aperture can read, but even that doesn't seem possible yet.

    all the best

    Thanks Cindy. I am having a lot of fun with A mount lenses since i got the adapter. There are clear winners and losers.

    Here is one with KM 100 macro
