EM if all you want is an aperture priority simple to use camera.

50/f1.8 E if on a budget

45/f2.8 P if you have loads to splash

On the Sony Nex there is a menu option to 'operate shutter without lens', I would have thought there would be a similar option for the NX - its just a matter of finding it and setting it. Can't help...
