I picked up a Sony (ugh) Nex-5n with the kit lens, the EVF, and a few old manual focus lenses. It’s fun and somewhat easy to shoot with manual focus lenses on this body since it has something called “focus peaking“. I’ve taken a few hundred photos over the past 24 hours and I’ve got a new walkabout gallery (click the photo at the end).

With the tilting rear LCD it’s very easy to get candid photos. I just hold the camera at my waist and fire away. I actually like doing that better than pulling the camera up to my face. I’ve barely used the (expensive) EVF I purchased.

I’m still working out how to walk, focus, and compose. It’s a lot harder when you don’t have AF.
