    Using manual lenses on the Panasonic S1R.

    Thanks to its large high-resolution EVF, magnified focusing view, and easy-to-implement sensor stabilization, this camera is the best I've tried for adapting vintage lenses. This photo I took with a Nikon 55mm micro. The relative unpopularity of the S1R means you can find bargains on the used...

    Craigslist diehards

    Got this lens on a Nikon Pronea (APS film) camera at a flea market last weekend for $10. I also have the 24-70mm IX-Nikkor lens. These lightweight, plastic-bodied lenses seem like a good fit with the NEX. These samples were shot with the lens wide open at the 30mm setting. Doug
