Jae Yoon posted a user report on Steve Huff’s website (Click here). He used the Sony NEX-5n with the amazing Contax G Lenses: “On that note, I have to heartily recommend the Contax G Zeiss 28mm F2.8 and 45mxm F2 lenses. The 28mm F2.8 had some trouble with the initial NEX cameras because of the rear focus Biogon design that didn’t jive well with the microlenses on those first generation sensors. You would end up with distracting and somewhat ugly corners because the rear element of the lens came too close to the sensor and light was hitting it at too extreme of an angle. With the newly designed sensor in the 5N, Sony has mostly alleviated the issue and its hard for me to detect in my images if I’m seeing color shift or just simple vignetting for infinity focus shots. Either way, the situation is nearly undetectable for this deservedly heralded lens.”
A quick reminder. Contax made seven G lenses you cann all use on your NEX with the G to NEX adapter. Her eare the lenses:
Contax G 16mm f/8 (Click here to see them on eBay).
Contax G 21mm f/2.8 (Click here to see them on eBay).
Contax G 28mm f/2.8 (Click here to see them on eBay).
Contax G 35mm f/2.0 (Click here to see them on eBay).
Contax G 35-70mm f/3.5-5.6 (Click here to see them on eBay).

This is the most “unserious” review of the NEX-5n I have ever seen: g4tv.com
