fantastic shots jack!
Really, really nice images Derek. The curly hair in BW does it, though...
Dad's all over this forum will be climbing the ropes to get at the Lux 35 Pre-ASPH, now...
thanks, it's more of a husbands than dads thing. the lux has by far the highest ratio of images of my wife that she likes versus doesn't like than any other lens on aps-c (rokkor 58/1.2 comes in second). so far it appears the same will be true on FF. must be that whole mandler glow thing...
I'm curious when you got a 35 lux and for what camera?
I ask because I know how you are really loving the RX1 at 35mm.
I'd guess you bought the 35 lux as a normal for one of the sony aps-c models.....
How do you like it on the A7?
and what camera was used for those last gorgeous shots?
Can't believe how your daughter has grown
all those shots are with the a7. i am just borrowing the lens from a friend to use on my a7. i shot with it for a while on the nex-7 too and loved it (haven't posted those here due to the OP's FF preference).
just like i believe in having many 50s i also believe in having many 35s (i like the 35mm focal length better though). the rx1 easily outperforms the lux in every aspect except distortion (the lux is also much easier to focus on running children), but they have very different character, and i'm generally more interested in character than perfection. if i had to choose only one it would be the rx1, but it would be extremely close. if i had to pick one lens for the a7 at this point it would definitely be the 35 lux pre-asph.
some shots with it that remind me of corposant:
and some silly family shots:
