Sony NEX with Nikon 35/1.8 dx lens

This 35mm/1.8 Nikon lens is the DX G version without an aperture ring, as it's controlled electronically with the newer Nikon DSLRs. However, with this particular NEX to Nikon adapter, the "off-on" ring at the base of the lens opens and closes the aperture. Focusing and metering work well. Of course, focus is manual.

This lens is very light, so it matches up well with the light NEX body. The 35mm becomes an effective focal length of ~52mm (relative to 24x36mm film/FF), so it's a great focal length for normal use, as well as for casual portraits.

On the NEX to Nikon adapter, the "off-on" control for the aperture is a bit twitchy, but easy to figure out what approximate aperture you have set, based on the displayed shutter speed on the big LCD.
