The Sony NEX system is shipping now, but I don’t see the NE-5 with the 16mm lens as being available in the US right now.  I’ve added a link above to B&H Photo for the camera and kits, and the link below that on the bottom right is to Sonystyle.com, so you can see what’s available for the system, and the prices.

The image below is the top of a Mexican fencepost cactus, taken with the A900 and 100mm Sony macro lens.  You’ll notice most of it isn’t in focus, which is intentional, although I don’t think I could’ve put everything in focus if I wanted to, even at F/32.  I converted it to B&W because I thought the original green color was a bit much, and the absence of color would accentuate the shapes a little more. What do ya think?

I’m working on the Minolta AF 70-210mm F/3.5-4.5 lens review right now.  It’s looking pretty interesting, and will offer a few surprises.  I should have it ready in a week or two.
