Having quite a few cameras and lenses around means that there are lots of different combinations to try. I've tried these two lenses on the NEX-C3 but I hadn't as yet tried them out "in the field".

I've always thought the 35mm f/1.8 is a really good lens. There is a Dpreview review of it here.

I can only agree with what they said:-
"....the 35mm F1.8G DX is, for its winning combination of high image quality, large maximum aperture and low price, a lens which deserves to be on many a Nikon shooter's shopping list."

Whenever I've had a Nikon camera, I've had one of these. I've even used it on a Nikon D3X, using the 5x4 sensor crop on that camera and it was very good indeed.

It worked very well on the NEX-C3. I was able to change the aperture, but the nature of the adapter meant that it wasn't easy to know exactly what I was using, but from the shutter speed readout I would estimate that these are within the f/5.6 > f/11 range. 

Everything was shot in the 16:9 Panaoramic mode.

The other lens I used was a Nikon classic. The 85mm f/1.8D. Ken Rockwells review of it here.

Lovely sharp results from both lenses. Both should work very well with a NEX-7.
