New pancake for Sony NEX cameras.

It looks pretty good. They need a good pancake to replace the 16mm. I like its look.

1. What I REALLY want for my NEX is a lens longer than 210mm

 

I tried a 1.4X tele-convertor but the image quality was garbage. I want a genuine long lens, like a 400mm or even 600mm. Something in that range. The lack of a decent long lens is my one and only gripe with the NEX system.

2. If you don't mind going manual, get an adapter

Then you won't be hemmed in by what Sony has or doesn't have.

I recently picked up a Panasonic GX1 and a c-mount to 4/3 adapter and a minolta mount to 4/3 adapter. And since my GX1 has a 2x sensor, if I throw a 300mm lens on it, I'm at 600mm.

Anyway, something to consider.

3. That's an idea worth looking into.

 

I also gave some thought to a telescope adapter and a spotting scope.

4. Get an Alpha to NEX adaptor then hit eBay.
