Testing the NEX-7 with Leica lenses

Since I can’t really afford to get a new Leica M, I’ve been wanting to test a Sony NEX camera with my Leica lenses to see if that would be a good alternative to my aging M8.

In short, it’s not for me. I got a couple of nice shots (like the butterfly above), but largely it was a flop.
