Do you ever use your NEX 6 with old, adapted MF lenses? These days adapted lenses are popular and there are tons of old 35mm lenses out there for sale. I see them all the time at shops in Japan and often the price is very low. I have 3 old primes right now, but don't use them:Minolta MC Rokkor-X PG 50mm f1.4
Yashica ML 55mm f2.8 macro
Tokina RMC 28mm f2.8
I have sort of half-thought that getting a used Sony A7 might be fun to sometimes use old, MF adapted lenses. Just use aperture priority mode, exposure compensation, and focus peaking. The FF would be best to give the proper experience. But, this is something I am not willing to spend much money on since I might do it just a bit and then decide the fun isn't nearly as much as I thought it would be.
It might just be the low prices for wonderful old lenses that are hard to pass up that makes it seem like it might be fun.
Anyway, a second idea I had is a NEX 6. It has an APS-C sensor so the angle of view would change, but the camera can be bought used pretty cheaply these days and with its size and grip would probably still be reasonable for not too big old lenses. Anyway, just musing right now.
