Well Sony fanboy, nice to see you on this Canon site. Good luck with sticking a 600mm lens on your NEX5
Why would I want to "stick" a 600mm lens on my NEX 5n I have THREE Canon cameras, one FFFilm and two APS-C DSLRs, plus a FFFilm Nikon and a Toyo 4x5 (a real FULL FRAME camera).
So am I a Sony fanboy a Nikon fanboy or a Canon fanboy Or just a photographer who chooses the right tool for the job.
BTW I usually shoot with an EF 85mm f/1.8, but from time to time I'll use a 300mm f/2.8, a 400mm f/2.8 or a 400mm DO. I have a Wimberly II gimbel head ( http://www.tripodhead.com/products/wimberley-main.cfm ) that I use for long lenses. It would be no problem to use the NEX 5n, with a Metabones Canon EF to Sony E adapter ( http://www.dpreview.com/news/2012/01/17/Metabones_Conurus ) and a Big White lens 'cause the gimbal head carries the weight, not the camera.
