  1. Hi Matt, thank you very much for your informative articles. I use the NEX 5N and I am drawn to the the NEX7 or 6 as a second body. What selection of primes would you consider to be ideal for these cameras? Thanks

    • Hey Peter, glad you’re getting useful info here. :)

      If I had to choose three essential primes for my style of shooting on the NEX-7, it’d have to be the Nikon 105mm f/1.8 AI-s, the Nikon 180mm f/2.8 AI-s ED (if you love telephotos), and a close tie between the Sony 35mm f/1.8 OSS and Nikon 50mm f/1.8 Series-E.

      However, if you were speaking of only autofocus lenses, my ideal set would probably be the 35mm f/1.8 OSS and 50mm f/1.8 OSS. I would say also an 85mm f/1.8, but it unfortunately doesn’t exist yet. Instead, Sony just announced an overpriced (subjective, of course) 20mm pancake. :(

      • Hi Matt,
        Your prompt reply is very much appreciated. The Sony OSS lenses are tempting but I think I will first try my hand with a Nikon 50mm and use the focus peaking which I have found very helpful. I tend to use the DMF mode quite a lot. So far I only have the kit lens and the 55-210 zoom.
