NEX-5 Leica

The prime lens packaged with Sony’s NEX-5 digital still camera is a 16mm f2.8 E-mount (18 mm flange focal depth).

But, I wanted faster, sharper, manual. From my collection of Leica M lenses, the venerable “quintessential rangefinder Ernst Leitz Summicron 50 mm f2.0 was a perfect match. It conveniently collapses for unobtrusive transport–although anything with a Leica logo is hardly unobtrusive. I’m using a Fotodiox Leica M to Sony E Adaptor. Of course, the images are stunning.
