Beautiful shots Phillip. The specular highlights in the first are a bit wierd - typically oval towards the edges, but some are round and others hexagonal-ish in the center? Did you somehow combine two shots or something or is the SEL3035 aperture not quite round wide open? But no offence intended, it's a gorgeous shot regardless!

I mislabeled it, as the exifs show it was taken @f/5.6. I have no explanation about the weird shapes of the specular highlights

Ah - the highlights presumably become more round towards the edges with the more oblique angle. And this might be evidence of field curvature of the lens design, which could be why the edges never catch up with the centre stopped down!

A couple of flower shots to show off how good Phllip's are. Especially if you think he is using a cheapo Sony macro lens, whereas I am using the great Leica R 60mm Makro...

Phillip, love the set of the foliage and dew drops. I've wondered what can be done with the Sony macro... now I have a pretty good idea. In the right hands it looks like it can really sing!

Alan, nice work with the OM 50/1.8. I owned that lens for a short time and thought it was much, much better than the price would suggest.

Tran, that is nice stuff with the product shots, proof that great results, even for product can come from inventive affordable solutions. I tip my hat to you sir.

@everyone, I am loving the flowers on this page.

Thank you Jacob. Yes, I think it is a fantastic lens, regardless of price. Mine is "made in Japan", serial# 4million+, allegedly the better one. Manages to be sharp wide open yet smooth and soft, and a razor stopped down . A few more from it on the original NEX-5:

It seems I'm not the only one who's noticed that spring has finally arrived, judging by all the great shots lately Here's a couple of Anemone hepatica shots of mine, all with the Contax S-Planar 60/2.8 and NEX-7.

I dont think that person with sense for beauty can complain about too much of your photos.

How you managed to squeeze 3D from 50/1.8 OSS is bit mystery to me..

I know you didn't ask me, but I'm surprised at how much I'm liking my 50 OSS. Here's a recent one I took with it.

lovely! both the 35 and 50 OSS lenses look like they could be my kind of lenses drawing style wise. i just haven't gotten them because i'm turned off by dealing AF lenses on the NEX.

Derek,
I never thought I would like using autofocus on my NEX, but I found it's so much easier than MF when I"m trying to get photos my kid who is rarely still. I almost exclusively use Face Detection mode and I'm surprised at how well it works. Much better than trying to make sure your AF spot is on the eye and not the eye brow.

Quite a bit.

  • Bokeh is super smooth
  • Contrast is quite high, even wide open
  • I havn't shot enough with it to tell you much about the look
  • AF works well for people in face recognition mode, as long as it isn't too dark
  • OSS isn't too effective, maybe two stops. Having it is nice anyway, especially for filming
  • it isn't smaller than most adapted 50's with adapter

    yeah, i find AF spot to be unusable. face detection seems much better and is the only AF tech i'm really keeping an eye on. for now i'm still much faster and more accurate manual focusing on people than face detect on the one AF lens i use (sigma 19mm). my big gripe with AF lenses is the poor implementation of manual focus (no way to confine MF assist to a button press).



    cool, thanks!
