    I'm happy to share the news that our friend, photographer Ted Johnson, has been working to develop precision engineered accessories for the Sony NEX-5. His company currently has three accessories available for sale.

    From the JTec website:

    I know that if I were an NEX shooter, the JTec Cold Shoe Viewfinder Mount would be high on my shopping list.

    Ted's been a friend of the site for a few years now. My understanding is that he is shooting with an NEX-5 and developed these accessories as a labor of love.

    My impressions of the NEX-5 were very positive, but it's not the one for me. I like shooting at eye level with an integrated viewfinder. Also, I love my MFT lenses, especially 20/1.7, 25/0.95, and 45/2.8.

    I just now received word that JTec will be joining Lensbaby as a sponsor of this site :2thumbs:. Welcome, JTec!

    I would like to clarify, however, that the above post was written prior to sponsorship, ie not in exchange for pay. Ted has been contributing to SeriousCompacts.com for nearly three years now (long before it was a forum), and I am very happy to help spread the word about these products which are of interest to our growing NEX user group.

    Great news but where do we get the viewfinders??? Guess I have research to do, esp. for Nikon lenses. I got my Nikon adapter today and I'm enjoying testing out my few primes.
