    Any of the cheap Ebay HongKong adapters will do. Most of them go a little past infinity but with magnification and focus peaking it is no problem.

    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    John, as Michiel said just about any of the ebay adapter will do. Some are better then others so it is a bit of a crap shoot. I lucked up with mine and it seems to do just fine. The good thing is if the lens is a little loose the adapter are adjustable so you can snug that up to fix it.

    I have had rather good luck with adapters I have received from Fotodiox - your online source for professional photography accesories and supplies

    They have gotten serious about the adapter game and carry all kinds for all makes of cameras. They get theirs from most of the same factories that the ebay sellers seem to but I think fotodiox implements a bit of quality control on what they buy. Not for sure about that, but I have purchased I think 5 adapters from them and haven't really had a problem with them.

    If money isnt an option then check out the Novoflex adapters. They are just over 200 bones but are supposed to be designed and produced in Germany to much higher specifications then the Chinese stuff. Worth a look if you have a fat wallet.

    I highly reccomend you give the Minolta glass a try on your NEX. Rokkor lenses were some of the best available back in the day and they still produce truly wonderful photos. Here is an interesting bit of history on Minolta lenses.

    Hope some of this helps.

    Lovely photographa Simon. Although the colours in the second one look a bit weird, almost like an illustration, but I like it here.

    Philber, Love the silence in your photographs of your magnificent city.
    You must be an early riser, like all the French.

    Thanks Gentlemen,

    I've been playing around with different filter combos in Color Efex Pro (new to me) so that accounts for the colors in the second image. If I recall, this is using the Detail Extractor on the 'flat' setting and then the Brilliance/Warmth filter.

    I also find it useful for pre-processing before I use Silver Efex Pro 2, as you see in the first picture where I used the Detail Extractor and ND Grad filters to bring out the detail and contrast in the sky and water. The Detail Extractor also gives a nice grain effect.

    Cheers,

    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    Good information, Simon. Thanks. Never got into Silver Efex Pro. I looked into it but never really tried it.

    This is an older image with a Russian € 5,- lens. Really small and quiet good.

    You can still buy them new at Rugfit. Looks a little different from mine which looks like this: LensTip.com - lens review, lenses reviews, lens specification - Lenstip.com

    I bought mine on the Waterlooplein fleamarket.

    Vivek, I am so envious, you have a 60mm f1.5 penf!!! Lovely bokeh, bet it is hard to focus even with focus peaking, especially with moving street subjects!

    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    It is easy to focus with the 60/1.5. No problems. The temperature was 8 deg C and the shutter speeds were quite low. Handholding the camera in those conditions surrounded by people (with little space to move around) is a bit challenging. Shutter speeds 1/80s and above works well for portraits.

    Playing around with a suggestion I saw on the rangefinder forum for processing B&W. NEX 7 + ZM50 f2.

    More silence from Paris (thanks Michiel!), and, yes, I get up early. My usual NEX 7 and Elmar 24mm.

    I haven't really looked into it too much but I believe the remote release for the Alpha SLRs works with the 7. No idea how good it is though.

    I bought one for very little money on E-Bay, and it worked fine on my 5N, I have no reason to believe the 7 would be any different.
