A real beaut, eh?
This is the first rangefinder lens that I have adapted to NEX. I was hoping the lens would have a very short flange focal distance, but alas, it's just not be! The lens is almost like an SLR lens in terms of flange distance. Anyway, it's a good experience, and the lens is very tiny, though it looks very ugly when mounted on the NEX-5N. The lens itself is quite nice. Very sharp at f2.8. Too bad this afternoon it was raining and I only managed to snapped a few pictures. I little hood I put on was not long enough, as you can see some hazy spots near the building and tree of the image below.

The focus travel is rather limited and the minimum focus distance is a very long three feet, common with rangefinder lenses but makes any kind of close up impossible without aids. Hopefully I will have more chance to use it later on.
