This is one of those "I've got an adapter so lets see how this lens works on this camera" type articles that I post from time to time. In this case its my new 24-85mm Nikon zoom on a NEX-7. Here's some camera porn I shot with it.

I've got one of those Nikon > NEX adapters that I can change the aperture on, though its mostly guesswork. Tripod mounted, like these pictures were, it actually worked pretty well. Its a 35mm - 127.5mm in 35mm terms, so its actually quite a useful lens for APS-C sensors. Not so successful hand held though. The narrow apertures made the focus peaking a bit faint. However it might be worth persevering to see if I can get it to work.
