Hey Jacob, nice series there, and I especially like the last two. I think that if the highlights/sky were pulled down a bit, it'd bring more balance to the frame. But nice!

Hmmm. I like them the way they are. The high tone of the first two don't do anything for me, but I like skies in the last two, particularly the last.

Wall-hanging stuff, plasticmotif, congratulations! Is it slight colour shift on top of the first shot?

Great photos everyone!

I have a question though. I have been considering the Nex 6 for a while but unsure about the corner performance with my ZM wides. Would very much appreciate your opinion

which wides? the nex-6 will perform as good or better than any of the other NEX (the 5N and R are comparable everything else is worse) but not as well as the gxr.

unrelated, here is a shot with the g45 wide open:

Very nice photo, sebboh. I currently use the ZM 18, 25 and 35. The 18 and 25 cause occasional color shift on the M9 but nothing serious. Do you know how they would behave on the Nex 6 in terms of corner smear and color shifts?

the zm 18 and 35 should have no noticeable smear (if i remember correctly you have the 35/2 not the 35/2.8?), not sure about the 25mm. if you compare them directly to the gxr in a well controlled comparison you'll probably be able to observe that it performs a little better, but not enough that you'd notice it without the comparison. if i recall correctly both the 18 and 25 have slight color shift that some notice and others don't. i believe the 35mm does not have any noticeable shift.

On the 5N, Edward, I get neither softness nor colour shift with my ZM 18. On the other hand, I had both on the ZM 25 I tried, which I therefore did not purchase. I bought the phenomenal Elmar 24 instead.

Thank you very much Sebboh and Philippe. It's interesting that the 18 seems to be better than the 25 on the Nex, while it is the opposite on the M9. None of the lenses showed any weaknesses on the GXR though.

That the 18 is problem-free whereas the less-wide 25 is explained by Zeiss' Dr Nasse. The 18 is a quasi-retro focus Distagon, whereas the 25 is a symmetrical Biogon, the architecture that is most problematic, as also demonstrated by the CV wides.

Thank you Philippe. That makes sense in terms of design, but for some reason the 18 produces more color shift on the M9. But good to know nonetheless. The Nex 6 should arrive soon

Edward,

I've been using the NEX-6 with the ZM 25/2.8, ZM 35/2.8, CV 15/4.5 and CV35/1.2. Both Biogons have a little bit of smearing and faint color shift compared to the GXR. The CV15 has more than I expected, to the point I stopped shooting all of the snowy Michigan scenes with it on the NEX-6, it just remains on the GXR. The CV 35/1.2 is flawless with edge to edge corner sharpness and no color shift.

I had bad luck with cheaper adapters, and went through a few before just spending a bit more for a Fotodiox Pro adapter. Cheap ones either didn't reach infinity or were not entirely parallel to the sensor plane. I think the best one is probably the Voigtlander one because the release tab is so low profile, many of them will dig into your right middle finger. I can't remember, but I don't think I've seen you do much on a tripod. Regardless, the palm grip from Jim Buchanan has really made the camera more comfortable for me to shoot with, especially with heavier lenses mounted. It's got an Arca-Swiss base built into it as well, which I use all the time.
