It is. Quite prolific down here this time of year. It's a series I have been working on for a while. I wait till they puff up just right, and are laying in the right spot. For some reason, they won't do poses.

That's a cool set Noodlz, the first and third being my clear faves.

I have a few more walkabouts with the Planar 1.7/50 on 5n. Never much liked the 50mm FOV on aps-c before but after using nothing else for a few days/walks, it's growing on me.

sweet, you just need to talk to their agent to get them to pose for you.

Bored this afternoon... wanted to take the CV90 outside. Never really made it, had to settle for the back yard

Yet another page of great stuff!

Still forcing myself to use other (non-FDn 35/2) lenses - Olympus 50/1.8:


Lee Rowing Club, The Marina, Cork, Ireland by specularist, on Flickr


Pairc Ui Chaoimh (GAA sports stadium), Cork, Ireland by specularist, on Flickr

And from the Tokina ATX 80-200mm f4, which really needs a hood - it suffers from CA and loses contrast if there's any bright light (even sky) - but can be sharp-ish & produce rich colours throughout its range:

Some more great work here, Phillip I do love those snowy shots.



Simon's Corner by Mawz, on Flickr
NEX-7 Sony 16/2.8

This one shows off the occasionally funky corners the 16 is subject to.

But for semi-pro work (actually, for a friend who paid me in kind with a whiskey-tasting workshop), the FDn 35/2 is pressed into action again:

Just finished up with an engagement session this morning. I am still struggling a bit while shooting people with the Nex system. At least on the Nex 6, trying to adjust shutter speed is a huge pain in the rear. I continually push the dial too hard and end up adjusting the ISO. Huge pain. I really, really wish we could swap the aperture dial with the shutter dial. I hardly ever use the top dial. Any one else wish for this?

Oh yes indeed. If it weren't for what you're describing I would have upgraded from my 5n in a heartbeat. For legacy lenses it just doesn't seem worth it. Bummer.

This is why I bought the NEX-7 instead of NEX-6 last month. For the controls. I use aperture mode 90% of the time so the top dial is pretty wasted for me. I would have liked better high ISO and the PDAF focusing, but the controls were a show stopper for me.

Love that engagement ring idea^.

I am diggin' high ISO on this camera as a snapshooter. I'm coming from a T2i. Not that it's a terrible camera, but ISO-wise, it's like being let out of a newspaper-lined cage.







ISO 1600 G28







ISO 1600 G28







ISO 800 G28

Maybe you should have looked a little closer before you made that choice. On the NEX-6, the thumb dial underneath the mode knob shifts function depending on whether it's in Aperture priority or Shutter priority mode. In aperture mode, it adjusts the aperture. In shutter mode, it adjusts the shutter speed. The problem that photoomaha had would only happen in Manual mode. Even then, with a reasonably gentle touch, the problem he had would not occur. Having had all three bodies, I would rank them as follows:
Ergonomics:
1. NEX-6
2. NEX-7
3. NEX-5N

Imager noise:
1. NEX-5N
2. NEX-6
3. NEX-7

The NEX-7 obviously wins the resolution ranking but do you really need 24 MP when you suffer with high ISO noise and problems with wide angle edge color issues?

Overall:
1. NEX-6
2. NEX-5N
3. NEX-7

IMO, the NEX-7 is overrated and suffers because Sony let the marketing department convince them that a big resolution number was more important than high ISO performance. If Sony comes out with a a FF NEX and the high ISO performance isn't comparable with cameras like the Canon 6D or Pentax K-5, they will be making a huge mistake and they won't sell one to me.

Zombii,


I have a NEX 7 and NEX 5N and I prefer the sensor on the 7.

Per pixel noise is higher on the 7, but when I downsize the NEX 7 files to be equivalent to the NEX 5N files, I barely see any noise advantage to the 5N files. This was discussed at great length in these forums when the NEX 7 came out. Dynamic range is better on the 7.

yeah, i prefer the dynamic range and color of the 7s sensor. i also like having 24mp for landscapes.

Jeff,
I've read all those opinions and I tried it myself, both downsizing the 7 and upsizing the 5N and I could still see a significant difference either way. Go out and shoot them at ISO 6400 in low enough light that requires that ISO to get a reasonable shutter speed and it becomes very clear.

If you're making very large prints and you're able to shoot at lower ISO's, I would agree. Your primary usage is definitely a key factor but for if you shoot much low light and you rarely make very large prints, the 6 is a better choice IMO.

i'd agree with this, i have trouble making the 24mp sensor match the 16mp sensor for high iso. perhaps i just need to use different downsizing/noise reduction algorithms though. i've not spent much time perfecting that.
