Alan, those RHPS images are great! Nice job in tough lighting conditions. I may need to look into getting a speed booster. I have a few nikon lenses that I would like to try with it. Do you notice any image quality issues? It is really hard getting a good feel with all the reviews being all over the place. Some say it is great, others call it rubbish...

Thanks! I got the cheaper Zhongyi Lens Turbo for FD and it's hardly left my F3 since. Image quality issues - yes, better IQ! ;-) Slight increase in sharpness across the frame, but not the fall-off in edge sharpness I was expecting - that's probably a testament to the quality of the FD lenses. I think the far corners are a little soft, but i haven't tested it. A significant reduction in contrast overall, recoverable in RAW, and may be corrected by use of a hood, which I don't have for FD, but should try it with LT (FD are all pretty high contrast on a regular adapter). Wider angles show a fair bit of barrel distortion, correctable with +10 in ACR. Central blue spot shows up with bright scenes, especially reflective water, with a central dark subject - i think it's a flare spot caused by the LT glass reflecting back onto the sensor, and may also be responsible for the general contrast issue (just a hunch). It's partially fixable with a bit of selective blue/purple reduction, but BW conversion helps a lot!

Unless you can justify/afford a FF A7 (I can't), it's a great, fun, FF-on-the-cheap for the NEX!

Fantastic seagull shot, must have been close-up? Love the BW pp also!

Dang. I was hoping you would say it was horrible! Now I am going to have to try one out! I've got three nikon primes I really want to see how they look...

Really love the composition on that one, looks like she's floating. I wish the face was a tad sharper, though?


I posted this one to the pano thread as well, but this thread is a bit more lively. G28:

Zach, that is a great capture in a difficult lighting situation. It really seems to me that these little Nex cameras can really bring it when it comes to dynamic range. The colors just pop.


I have to say I am in love with the DRO on NEX/Alpha cameras. It is really wonderful. Even on shots where I've got to recover from too little light, there is an incredible amount of data in the shadows/blacks that can be restored. They're very impressive little beasts!

Nice shot.Might i suggest if you have LR you can lower the luminance in the red channel and likely recover a lot of detail in the dress.

Jim, Thank you for the tip with that. I went in and messed with it some more, using the luminance, and that did bring down the red to a 'just right' area. Thanks!

Hey Jim, here is the repost with the "luminance" dialed down. Thanks again.

Really like the clarity and black and white treatment in the shot!

Another couple of images from Mexico, taken with the 16-50.

Efterklang in concert (not a fan, FWIW!); FDn 50/1.4 + Lens Turbo:

Check the crazy flare far right (was a mix of yellow and blue I think):

Thanks! Almost all my posts/shots from the past two months are with it. Copy/paste from above: I got the cheaper Zhongyi Lens Turbo for FD and it's hardly left my F3 since. Image quality issues - yes, better IQ! ;-) Slight increase in sharpness across the frame, but not the fall-off in edge sharpness I was expecting - that's probably a testament to the quality of the FD lenses. I think the far corners are a little soft, but i haven't tested it.
