    Good idea Uwe. I've been putting my 5N shots here, but will start using this thread for new images. Did you also order the EVF for the 5N? It is really outstanding - best I've seen so far.

    Without the EVF I would not even look at the 5N. Have the 5 and the EVF was the major letdown. EVF is in but not the camera :-)

    I'd be interested as to how stable the EVF is on the 5N, will is sustain knocks, etc.

    However, a couple of weeks in Crete with the EP3 and the VF2 viewfinder has convinced me that it's okay, necessary, and the Olympus one certainly took knocks. . . . . . . ... but a built in like the NEX7 certainly seems like a better option . . . but one has to wait!

    I like the A12-M with my 55mm Micro Nikkor. The Leica lenses are sharper but not as versatile.







    Was actually posted in the wrong thread. But plan the same images with the NEX-5N :-)

    Re: Share your best NEX-5N images here

    I posted this shot in the other Sony images thread, but re-processed for this post. Now using RawPhotoProcessor for converting the NEX-5N raw images (seems to give cleaner, more natural results than either RawDeveloper or the Sony raw converter).

    Canon FD 50mm f/1.2 at f/1.2.

    ahh -ooh aah - stop already.
    I wasn't even thinking of this camera - was going to wait for the NEX7 - now I'm tempted. Especially having bitten the bullet and put all my Pentax and m4/3 kit up for sale.

    Carl - the flowers are lovely - really fine. (thinking about my Nocti!)
    waardij - that panorama is working well.

    Uwe - as usual your black and whites are lovely

    Nice panorama, need to practice that.

    Is that a sweep panorama?

    Re: Share your best NEX-5N images here

    It is a 'traditional' panorama, made with a pano head, on a tripod. Sweep does not work so well if there is a close foreground and I wanted the dynamic range and resolution of RAW.
    The resolution and detail of the 5n are amazing. Iso100 is also an improvement.

    Very nice B&W compositions Uwe. Looking forward to your comparison of the A12-M to NEX5 with M mount lenses.

    Well done pano waardij. Looks like the Nikon zoom is a good performer on the NEX.

    Thanks Jono. My Pentax gear is also being sent out for sale, along with the X100. Just think of the 5N as training wheels for the upcoming NEX7
    Focus peaking with the NEX should really let you nail focus with that Nocti.

    That's the way I'm thinking - but I must be good until it's all on ebay . . . . tomorrow maybe! Mind you, I don't think the 5n is readily available in the UK yet anyway. My X100 went ages ago.

    No No - it's only about making a decision between m4/3 and NEX, it doesn't have to be terminal (and of course you can use both). I was thinking before that the available lenses was the issue. It isn't that it's not an issue, but in the final analysis I think that if you can add any lens you like it's the sensor that counts . . . and i don't think there is much of a contest between the current m43 and the sony sensors - not really to do with sensor size, just that right now, Sony seem to be ahead of the game.

    Oh sorry. All were shot manual focus from the hip. First one was the 50mm f1.8 nikkor e-series, second was the 70mm f2.8 pentax 110 auto lens, and the last was the 24mm f2.8 pentax auto 110 lens. That last shot was actually caught almost as a pan as I was in motion walking in the opposite direction.

    This is a bit OT, but Capture One 6.3 is now supporting NEX-5N raw files. Here is one that I just ran through C1 as a trial and exported a full size jpg for peeping. I prefer using LR and I'm just exploring various raw converters while waiting for Adobe.

    Re: Share your best NEX-5N images here

    The dpreview comparometer now has NEX-5N images. So, any surprises? I was surprised that the Canon 18 mp images looked better at high ISO. Too bad that dpreview doesn't use the same lens on all the images it uses on the comparometer.

    Re: Share your best NEX-5N images here

    Well, this was a first - Austin City Limits festival with a mirrorless camera and manual focus adapted lenses. I usually show up with my Canon and a 35mm 1.4 L and a 70-200 2.8 IS but this year decided to shed some pounds and give the NEX a shot. Each of the three days I brought the following three lenses:

    1. Contax 35mm f/2 G or Contax 28mm f/2.8 C/Y mount - I switched between days
    2. Minolta Rokkor-X PG 50mm f/1.4
    3. Minolta m-mount 90mm f/4

    You can see the full set here: ACL 2011 - a set on Flickr

    And here are a few of my favs:







    Can't rave enough about the 5N. Simply amazing little camera.

    What's wrong with the G21 Biogon?



    I've been on a B&W kick recently. However, here is one in color, pretty decent 3D separation for medium distance objects even on APS-C. Contax 45mm F2 G on a 5N.

    I hope it is allowed but the photographs here just blew me away. I know Las Vegas is a very thankfull non ecological location of course.

    But I cannot buy just any camera I like
    Just bought into the Ricoh GXR system, besides my GH2, system for the A12 M module en the 28mm module.
    I was gonne wait for the NEX7

    Exiting times!

    I didn't get a chance to cut the plastic pegs on the G21 Biogon.

    All the images below are taken with Contax G lenses (G28 at f11, G45 at f5.6, and G90 at f4). I'm really glad that I kept all the G lenses, especially the G28.

    Re: Share your best NEX-5N images here

    BTW, I was reading the release notes on the latest version of Capture One Pro (6.3.1) and they already have support for all of the new NEX cameras (including the NEX-7) and the A77 & A65 RAW formats.

    This will need tweaking as the final format of the NEX-7 materializes, but i am itching to try it out!

    UPDATE: I can read A77 RAW files but not NEX-7. Oh well.

    Here sone images with different lenses. I think I get a hang on the NEX-5N (the EVF is crucial for me).

    Very nice images Uwe. I agree about the EVF and they seem to be getting better with each iteration. Still prefer built-in as opposed to an attachment, but I can get by with this one until the 7 makes an appearance. That 18-200 looks quite good considering the range.

    > Still prefer built-in as opposed to an attachment, but I can get by with this one until the 7 makes an appearance.

    Yes and no. I want a built-in swivel EVF. For now I don't really long for the NEX-7 although it will be very interesting of course.

    >That 18-200 looks quite good considering the range.

    I am surprised that I like it so much. Allows me to be very lazy :-)

    Ocean - those shots are lovely - especially the couple in the third shot. I really understand that feeling!

    For me the 18-200 is crucial - I'm sure the NEX is great with primes and I intend to use it with them, but mainly it'll be the M9 for primes and the NEX7/18-200 for casual shooting; not as small as the EP3/14-200, but around the same weight and better IQ.

    I can't wait!

    I hope you have/get the EVF. I cannot use the NEX-5(N) without the EVF and with the 18-200 even more so.

    You'll have to give me some clues about where to be critical - your shots so far don't give much scope for nastiness!

    Jono, Thanks for your kind words. I took the NEX 5N with few Contax G lenses on a short business trip and I had one day at Yosemite National Park. I agree with you that as much as I enjoy using the Contax prime lenses, the NEX 5N needs a good compact kit zoom lens, 16-80/2.8-3.5 (similar to Zeiss ZA, or the old Olympus 4/3 12-60/2.8-4). I also find that it's very limiting without the EVF.

    Cheers,

    (G28/f8, G90/f5.6, and G28/f8)

    HI Uwe
    It sounds like Panasonic may be making such a lens - but I'm not waiting any longer - the lure of the NEX7 is really too great - the 18-200 will probably do for now at least.

    My m4/3 kit is all heading to ebay at the moment; the new little primes are lovely, but it still doesn't fit in a pocket, and weight for weight the NEX isn't so different. IQ for IQ it certainly is. Added to which, if I want to use little primes, I have a better solution in everything but low light.

    I've been using the A55 with the 16-80 ZA, and although it's easy to criticise, it's actually really good in the 'real world' Such a lens for NEX would be really good.

    all the best
