my big gripe with AF lenses is the poor implementation of manual focus (no way to confine MF assist to a button press).


On my Nex 7, I have the AF/MF button set to AF/MF select hold. I set the AF mode to autofocus (with Face Detection). I let the camera do it's thing, then when I want to use MF with magnification, I just psh the AF/MF button, which shuts off AF, turn the focus ring and I get magnified view. Half press of the shutter gets me out of magnified view to check composition one last time before taking the shot.

thanks, my issue is that i don't ever want to use AF and i don't ever want turning the focus ring to activate magnified view, but i do want to be able to activate magnified view at the push of a button.

for static scenes or slow moving adults i usually use magnified liveview, but for shots of my daughter and any kind of quick shooting i like to be able to manual focus without zooming into magnified view.

once I started using manual focus lenses, I have become more comfortable using manual focus in general. I find certain lenses (like the 55-210) especially have difficulty with autofocus.

My wife last night on the phone. I just was able to find a Canon FD 24mm f2. Great lens and absolutely perfect on the Nex. I don't feel so drawn to picking up the Zeiss version now!

Fantastic stuff. Mind me asking which lens you used for these?

Thanks, everyone. I was directed here by somebody (nick escapes me), but became very interested when I began exploring the Speed Booster thread.

alwang: I appended the lenses used into the original post. I use my native E-mount lenses the most, but that is now bound to change now that I have an EF-to-E Speed Booster.

We don't see a lot of images here with the Sony 10-18, but I don't know why: it's clearly an excellent lens. I'd be surprised if you're going to find a better wide option using the Speedbooster (though it will certainly be nice for narrower fast-aperture stuff).

Oh, I mis-communicated my intent. It would indeed be difficult to find a significantly better UWA to replace the SEL1018, at least at the mid and wide end. Aside from a couple of Contax CZ primes I already have, the Speed Booster was meant to to be used with a 35mm (haven't decided between the Sigma DG HSM, Canon IS USM, or even a used CZ ZE) in lieu of the SEL24F18, and something 85mm-ish. I intend to further explore the limits of low-light social photography. I was just musing that I'd be a little busy for awhile playing with the new toys.

DtEW, welcome to FM. Regarding UWA, I have high hopes for the forthcoming Zeiss 12mm f:2.8. Considering its mooted price and that it is a prime, if it didn't outperform the cheaper Sony zoom, why would anyone buy it?
