Couple weeks ago was in Provence with NEX-5N+CV15 and Canon 6D+zooms and GF (girlfriend, not a Lumix )!

Here is the standard lavender shot at Abbaye de Senanque:



Full set with the little Sony, here.

Thanks for looking!

An image from tonight. I actually had the helicopter pilot yell at me to move. Evidently I was a bit too close to the spray! I did oblige, but not before snapping a pic! A6000 and 50mm 1.8

Some from this morning. Somewhat surprised that there's a bit of noise in the blue channel even at ISO 100, though it'd never show in a print and is easily surpressed. Guess I'm used to the smoothness from X-Trans (though that sacrifices a small amount of detail). Anyway, the first two are with the Sigma 19/2.8 Art, the last is a 3 shot HDR with the Sigma 30 Art.

ebay knock off smart adapter. yes, it covers the entire sensor. it is weakest at 10mm were the extreme corners are soft, but quite good form 11-18

Got the Rokinon 12mm f/2 in today. So far, a few observations: Quite small consideringi the speed and the width (smaller than my Fuji 14mm). Very sharp in the image center, even wide open (not as sharp as stopped down, but still quite good). Decent on the edges throughout, though not amazing. Bokeh is pretty nice at f/2. And yes, you can generate blur with this lens (as you'll see below). The lens shows quite a bit of chromatic aberration at all apertures...you'll want to click that box in Lightroom. Vignetting is also quite high, even stopped down, though I sort of like the look (and this can be corrected at the expense of some noise in the corners. )

Overall, seems like a very good lens for the money. Certainly not perfect, but considering the price, the width and the speed, I'm not complaining.

Just a quick shot at f/2:

good to know there is a cheaper option for UWA with Autofocus:

Canon 10-18 - $300
Cheap AF adapter - $100-160
= $450

Sony's 10-18/F4 E - $850

Zeiss Touit 12mm - $700

Seems like 10-18 route is the cheapest, unless I am missing something

I went this route: Bought the SEL1018 used for 570 Euros, great lens. The good thing with the Nex thing settling down that now you have the option to buy used, like a Zeiss 24 for 500 Euros.

@Jordan: Your 19/30 State house shots look great in color, but also a little overdone in sharpening for that output size? I just noticed compared to your lovely 60mm shots of your boy.

The AF though works, is very slow. I use the lens primarily as a manual focus lens, which is very easy to do. the IS does work. the adapter is only 85, and the lens is 300, or 385 for a new set. I am sure the used price will be in 250 range once a few our out there.
No knock on sony. Its faster, and ends up being smaller once you add adapter, and it has native AF.
The canon is working fine for me though, and I am very happy with it. One thing about canon is that it is flare prone.

Inside the statehouse now...all with the Rokinon 12mm f/2. CA issues aside (which can be mostly corrected), this is a pretty darn good lens. It's not the best UWA I've used, but it's very good. For the price, it's a steal. First two at f/5.6, last at f/2.

This seems to be a good choice. I did a side-by-side comparison between Sony 10-18 and Fuji 10-24 (I own both Sony A6000 and Fuji X gear)

http://www.dpreview.com/products/compare/side-by-side?products=sony_e_10-18_4&products=fujifilm_xf_10-24&sortDir=ascending

it appears that Sony is half the weight and smaller/shorter, which is big in my book. It is also $150 cheaper currently. Both are F/4 and have Stablization. Fuji reaches little longer (24 vs 18) but for UWA it is not critical as if I decide to get a UWA it will be predominantly used at the widest point. Both have great reviews.

Season of Summer Light
Week 29, Saturday - The Marketplace
"As I promised couple of days ago (see here), today I'll take you to the Finnish marketplace. The reason for this expedition is simple, you really haven't seen Finnish summer if you haven't visited the marketplace. To understand the importance of this subject, you first need to know something about the Finnish society. Today Finland is a typical information society, with all the technological schemes like broadband connections, databases, social media, mobile phones, tablets etc. But it has not always been like that.

High speed sync, via one of the larger external speedlights like the HVL-43m or 60m. Same thing you can do with most Canikon speedlights. Really isn't too special to Sony.


HSS basically just strobes the flash really fast, greatly reduces the output, but does let you sync at faster speeds than the x-sync speed.

Cameras with a leaf shutter, like the Fuji X100, the Sony RX1, Sony RX100 et al., don't have this limitation and can sync the flash up to max shutter speed. Makes them very useful for being able to even overpower the sun, and/or shoot wide open with flash.

Otherwise, if your dealing with the pop-up flash, or smaller externals, your stuck at the x-sync, so that means you need to stop down to like f11 to shoot in the sun at 1/250th to keep the flash balanced with the ambient.


Millsart,

Please excuse my ignorance, but what do you use to trigger the external flash from the a6000?

I switched from Fuji XT1 to Sony A6000 in my mirror-less setup (my main kit is Canon 5DM3) primarily due to the fact that I have a fast 2 year old toddler and it is fact in my opinion that A6000 is SUPERIOR to XT1 in terms of AF ability to track my child. There is no question in my mind on that as I've had both and I am getting consistently more keepers with the A6000. Fuji is not there yet. Another thing I like about Sony is, with external flash, you can shoot at speeds above listed Flash

Those macro photos are stunning. How does one go about to be able to get HSS to work on the a6000?
