Pancakes ideas for your NEX: Voigtländer Skopar 21mm f/4.0


I am a happy NEX-5n user (and probably a future NEX-7 user too). But what I am missing in the current NEX lens lineup are pancakes! I’m googling around to find some nice pancakes I can use on my NEX and I thought it would be nice to share with you my findings!

The Voigtländer 21mm f/4.0:
If you are looking for a compact street photography lens the  Voigtländer Skopar 21mm f/4.0 might eb your choice. You can use it on your NEX via Leica M to NEX mount adapter (Click here to find them on eBay). The lens itself costs around $500 and you can find plenty of them on eBay (Click here). On your NEX this will become a 32mm f/4.0 lens. It’s an ideal walkround lens. Very compact, top build quality. The only thing you have to consider is that it is not very fast.

What I found:
A set of image samples from “Tam” taken with the NEX-3 on Flickr (Click here).
Another set of image samples from “Jeebus” taken with the NEX on Flickr (Click here).
Amazing night shots from “Jacknrain” taken with the NEX-3 on Flickr (Click here).
You can see a picture of the NEX with the Skopar attached at Tokyocamerastyle.

What do you think:
Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
