What would be the best option for a 24mm e-fov lens with these, do we think? I probably wouldn't buy a leica or zm lens, but I have a canon 24 L right now, so I could have some flexibility to sell/trade. I'm actually wondering if a 10-22 efs wouldn't be a good option.

a speedbooster + the OM 24/2.8 might be pretty good? it's slow and a little wider, but the cv 15/4.5 is pretty awesome too.

That's really cool. Here's a picture from yesterday, also with some heat shimmer, but due to something else:

You can see the "chop" effect the propeller has had on the heat from the exhaust, then when it hits the wing things get fuzzy.

This is a 100% crop from a hand-held shot with the CV180 on the Nex-7.


That's a great shot!

Sorry to resurrect a photo from pages back, but I'm an irregular browser of this thread now...

...rather than the prop chopping up the flow from the exhaust stubs, what you are probably seeing is a spiral of propeller vortices being shed from the prop tips in relatively humid air. This is caused by pressure drop, hence condensation, in the vortex, the same phenomenon you get with wingtip trails (or fleeting condensation when a fighter aircraft does a high speed pass and some of the flow around the aircraft is transonic).

If AF is OK, and f/4 is fast enough, I would try the Sony 10-18 OSS. I think it's a pretty good deal, though I haven't owned one myself. Most reports show that it's pretty good optically, and the OSS is handy even for such a wide lens if you're taking pictures in twilight. If Zeiss hadn't announced their 12mm about a year ago I'm pretty sure I would've gotten the Sony.

Otherwise, for 24mm exactly, your options are limited. Either an SLR lens + speedbooster as sebboh mentioned, or the Sony 16mm which is so-so (though, also tiny and relatively fast at f/2.8).

The Canon FD 17/4 is a decent option for a good price. Very low distortion given it's focal length, decent color, very center sharp. I prefer the Minolta 17/4 for it's colors and better performance close up. CA and flare are about the same on either. Both are big, but I don't find either unreasonable on the 7.

You could always go with a 16mm fisheye and defish the shots.

Here are a few from last week.

Two flower shots with the CY 85mm and speed booster.













Two with the Leica 24 Elmar.













I'm thinking about selling my Sony/Zeiss 24mm. Now that I have the Leica, the Sony/Zeiss just sits there unused.

I couldn't agree more, Partitura. The Leica 24 is just such a joy on the NEX. BTW, if you mount it on a helicoid, you can get a rally short MFD and do amazing flower/close-up shots. Regarding your pics, 1&3 are my favorites

Thanks for your reply Sebboh. It confirms my suspicions. The adapter works fine and I can live with the off-kilter alignment.

Thanks, Philippe. I really should get the helicoid adapter. It would be great to have a shorter MFD.

Partitura, this is the sort of detail I get from my 24 with Hawks'. Obviously, it is a severe crop, but still. The second one (just cropped to throw away a bit of useless background) gives you a fair idea of how close you can get. Remember, that flower is not huge...:-)

Lovely shots, Michiel! If only you didn't actively enjoy this sort of funky bokeh!

Two photos from a recent visit to Kolmården zoo, the first with the Contax 50/1.7 @ f2.8, the second with the SEL18200 @ 137mm/f6.3 (aka "why did I leave the Jena 135/3.5 at home?" :P).




And some forget-me-nots with the Contax S-Planar 60/2.8 @ f5.6 and 1:1 magnification.

Does this mean you don't have to fix the corners? If that is the case, exactly which Leica 24mm are you recommending for a Nex?
