    Best NEX adapter

    I don't have the NEX-5 yet but it is near the top of my wishlist. I have a Summarit 35mm, Planar 50mm, Lux 50mm and 90mm cron. Any advice for adapters?

    Although they're spendy, I recommend the Voigtlander M adapters over at cameraquest. They have a well designed lens release tab that is streamlined and integrated into the ring, so it doesn't get in the way of your fingers on the grip. I bought one in black and silver, and the silver looks great with my silver ZM lens. I also have a Metabones M adapter, and, while it is cheaper and also well made, the lens release tab protruded way too much for me, and I quit using it.

    Sorry to break into this topic, but does someone have similar advice for Olympus lenses from the OM system? Still got some nice primes from it (like the 85/2 and 100/2.8). Btw, did anybody test these on a Nex?
