    Hi, I'm wondering if the above manual lens will work on the Sony NEX with an adapter? I already have a NIKON/NEX adapter I tried with a DX lens I already have. I'm not sure if the NEX will still be able to meter correctly. Thanks.

    I do not know the NEX - but if this helps - all my Nikon MF lenses, AI, AIS and NAI, (the older ones prior to AI), work OK on my G1 and EP1 and metre fine

    If you have an aperture ring and the ability to manually focus then it should work fine.

    I'm not sure how the Sony handles metering with MF lenses but still worth a go!
