| p.7 #9 · new Sony NEX-VG900 with M lenses? |
The corners are smeared, but that is to be expected knowing how the 21 Biogon performs on an APS-C camera, but I still don't get the comments you guys make.
If you shoot an infinity scene with mixed close and far objects at f2.8 with a Biogon 28mm on a FF camera, the above result is exactly what is to be expected. Who would shoot a scene like that WO? On the VG900, I'd use f11.
I expect the 28 Distagon to work much better on the VG900, but still, if you were to shoot the above scene WO with any 28mm, it will always look like crap.
I think many of us were curious to see if Sony addressed any of the issues from M lenses with the VG900, compared to the Nex still cameras, and, at least in terms of smearing, it appears they haven't. I'd be intersted to see a CornerFix profile shot made, in order to judge the color shift.
That shot with the 28 wide open does not show the normal amount of transition from in focus to out of focus on a full frame sensor with a 28mm lens at f2.8. As someone else mentioned, it looks like what you get when you use some CCTV lenses on aps-c. Cool effect, but it isn't supposed to look like that. My 28/2.8 on the M9 doesn't look like that.
Of course, we'll need a lot more tests to be sure, but things aren't looking encouraging when it comes to M wides on the VG900.
