Sony NEX Micro Four Thirds Lens Adapter

Sony NEX-5 with the Panasonic 14-45 micro 4/3 lens

Here's a new adapter for the Sony NEX E-mount. It's the micro 4/3 lens adapter for the Sony NEX cameras. We are not sure if the image circle will cover the larger APS-C sensor found in the NEX. Unfortunately the eBay listing does not provide sample photos.

Now lets imagine that it does provide a large enough image for the NEX - wouldn't you want to use the new Voigtlander 25mm f/0.95 Nokton on the NEX for a low light 37.5mm equivalent lens?

  1. Awesome blog. Thanks for showing us some of the capabilities of this awesome cam.

  2. I would love to use the samsung 30 mm lens, or the panasonic micro 4/3 20mm f1.7. Is there an adapter for the Samsung, and does anyone know whether this 4/3ds adapter works on the Sony nex 5? It seems that physically small pancakes are a great way to complement the compact body.I hope Sony do an e mount 28mm or so in a really compact size!

  3. Sony really needs to address the issue of crappy native E mount lenses. No doubt the cameras were targetted at the casual user, but now it seems the nex has a wider appeal :)
    I do hope Zeiss or the other specialists lens manufacturers fill the gap! At Sony's loss of course, if they continue to ignore us serious shooters :)

  4. I also use the samsung 30 mm lens, and feel this is the great ones..!!

  5. Adapter don't work, or at least I cannot make it work. So build a mount instead.

  6. Bought an adapter branded "Leinox" that does not work as well. No infinite focussing possible. Seems to use a flange back distance of 20mm which seems too large.

    Adapting the SLR Magic HyperPrime 12mm/F1.6 is interesting as well.

    Does anyone know a working adapter?

    1. @Hacky contact the seller and tell him your problem.
