    What is the next NEX?

    So many opinions on which current camera is the best for use with wide and telephoto Leica M lenses. So will the next NEX be better? Any solid rumors?

    Of the current choices which is best for mu uses?

    NEX-7
    NEX-5n
    NEX-5

    Probably missed one.

    Also which is the best NEX to M adapter? Novoflex?

    I am new to Sony, but after buying the RX-1 they have got my attention. Since the new M has no option to move magnification around the frame to check difference focus points I am exploring other options.

    Lou,

    Wait for a FW update of the M. If you really can not, consider the rumored 7n, if you can not wait another month or so, consider the 6.

    Novoflex adapters are excellent, but pricey. Fotodiox Pro adapters are more reasonably priced and are guaranteed to infinity focus.

    I use the Nex 7, which is definitely NOT considered the best for Leica wides. Everything I've read says the 5 handles Leica wides better.

    You might check Huff's and Reichman's sites, who have both written about this.
