In the panaromic mode, the aperture and not shutter will not be fixed.
The camera will choose different combination of iso, shutter speed and aperture accordingly to the scene.
at night, the camera will automatically increase to higher iso to increase the shutter speed to at least 1/60 for hand held shot
Just to confirm for those who have tried the NEX5:
i. No dedicated AE function in the soft menu? Exposure lock only on half press of shutter?
ii. For video, understand that with E-mount lens everything is set automatically, but if using A-mount lens, is aperture fixed at maximum opening when mounted?
iii. Will old manual lenses made for A mount work? (like the shoot w/o lens function on the m43 cameras)
iv. Do brands like Sigma with A-mount work with the adapter?
Seems like there are lots of loan sets in singapore, spotted at cathay , now op ,clubsnap and ********* forums also has them. I would love to see some samples with the adaptor and cz 24-70 fitted.
it is FAST but i dont think it was 7fps .... 4-5 fps from rough estimate
anyway pano images uploaded on Page 2 Post 34
IF moving persons/things/vehicles are caught when doing pano, the stitching will show 'slices' of the moving object

This camera is a street photographer's delight......... no noticeable shutter lag and focuses + meters in a snap..... these 3 images below were spontaneous "see and GRAB" quickies
The flip out LCD was bright and clear out in the afternoon without any difficulty in seeing
Feedback: LCD was fairly easy to pull out and felt safe and sturdy despite its (LCD) very slim profile
It allowed discreet waist or low level composition and shooting (#39 and #40 below were shot at belly level)
without fill in flash..... shooting at widest 18mm (27mm equiv) focal length.......... I was THAT close to the subject
with fill in flash
with a regular DSLR..... I would have needed to guess and shoot....... with the NEX-5 ....... I could kneel or squat comfortably , flip up the screen , compose and shoot... image as is and uncropped on Everything Auto mode
This fella knew I was walking around with a camera shooting but was VERY comfortable with me taking his pic as I did not get into a typical photographer's stance (raise DSLR to eye and taking a few sec. to adjust/compose) to shoot him....... composed and shot at waist level

Any test on light fall off, CA, macro functions?
Thanks for sharing with us.
Again I must say how much I really like the Panorama function and the way the camera executes it ....... go Pano mode, keep the finger depressed on the shutter button and do a left-right sweep while continuing to hold the shutter release button down .......... and suddenly i have default Ultra Wide Angle !!!!
BUT must remind again THAT any thing that is driving by/ running by will spoil the pano.... see the 2nd pic below (#44)
I can imagine going to Time Square in NY, the pyramids of Egypt, the Great Wall of China or the Grand Canyon and doing a sweeping panorama with this camera
Notice the guy's face and the 'judder' with the car......he was walking left-right quickly and car was driving right-left while I was doing the Pano sweep ha ha ha ... looks like a scene straight out of Matrix....
