sweet! FLE or pre FLE version?

Sinking element version, though I'm not much bothered by the focus shift.

i am always surprised what you get out of that lens, had one for a year, never liked it. After i saw some of your images i tried it again and sold it afterwards, couldn't get it to work for me.

Was yours a good copy? It's super-sharp from 2.8, with lovely bokeh; I can't imagine you not doing great stuff with it, if you like the focal length (which I've discovered I love on APS-C). Mine's been glued to my NEX since I got it; it's almost retired my 28mm & 50mm lenses.

Beautiful winter scenes, btw!

thanks ;-)

Performance was quite good, but i never liked the colors and the images i took with it lacked somehow. If i get the chance to try another one i will try it again! It will have a hard stance against the G28 though ;-).

lovely lens, not that much bigger than a 50mm, performance seems to be as good as with the MD 100/4 Macro but focusing is nicer.

Phillip, that last one really grabbed my attention. The zig zagging fence really makes it, and as usual your processing skills bring out the details.

How are you liking the 16-50? How about the NEX6?

Great series of shots as usual Phillip.
Ron, your shots from the 21 seem to be getting better, just getting used to it I guess.
I was also wondering how active/accurate the peaking was with it wide open vs. stopped down, as I have a few wides that are hard to nail focus even with a good amount of peaking to help.

What software do you use to stitch images?

Lots of inspiring shots in the last few pages full of presence!

I've been working on my output sharpening (all on Linux), thanks again for the feedback, not there yet but I think it's getting better.

That last one is mislabeled, it was taken with the G28.

I sold the 16-50 quickly after i got it because they sell for crazy 250 euros here in germany.
Optically i liked it, performance @16mm was quite fine after lenscorrection, much better than my old 18-55 @18mm.
I didn't really test the whole focal range but performance seemed solid.
When using AF i had some not perfectly focused images with it, focus wasn't off much but resolution suffered significantly.

My observations moving from the 5n to the 6

  1. image quality is the same
  2. operation is improved significantly
  3. i like to have a viewfinder, not that i am a huge fan of how it works it is nice to have
  4. the 6 is significantly bigger than the 5n
  5. the body is made mostly of plastic, doesn't feel as nice as the 5n
  6. When shooting raw-only the 5n's display often showed mushy details when zoomed in, the 6 doesn't do that

Thanks - the earlier photos were pretty much grab shots around the house and were processed with very little adjustment. The second set of images have had more processing 'to taste.' My feeling is this lens on the NEX is a bit lower contrast than what I'm used to getting from ZM and Leica glass on the M9. Could be the wider dynamic range of the NEX sensor as well as the default Adobe profiles for each.

As for peaking... I don't find it that accurate for wide open shooting with this lens. I need to try it more, but my definite impression is that if I think I've got good focus and then zoom in at magnified view, the focus point isn't usually exactly where I expected it to be. But it could also be my unfamiliarity with the NEX-7, and longer-term use might improve my results with only use of focus peaking.

Beautiful beach shots, Sebboh!

I went out after the first snow here this winter, but it had mostly melted, so in the spirit of my recent embrace of flare I tried a little "lens whacking" i.e. un-mounting and turning it at angles, to let light leak in for extreme veiling/flare, loss in contrast and semi-random extension tube/tilt/shift effects. Seat-of-the-pants photography, which requires some serious RAW abuse to recover.
