Just got the new Sony Zeiss 50mm f1.4 Planar for the A99.


cool! looking forward to pics with it.

i just picked up an old NEX-5N with viewfinder to convert to IR and got an OM 24/2.8 as part of the package:





i don't think i'll keep it, but before i pass it on i think i'll have to do a comparison between these two lenses on the NEX:





it looks pretty nice so far, here's a standard test shot for me:

Zuiko 24/2.8 is one of the best 24mm lenses around.I like it more than my OM 24/2.

out of curiousity, how come?

my initial impression is that it is has very pleasant rendering with clear colors and is very even across the frame, but lacks some of the clarity and bite of the rokkor as well as not focusing as close and being a bit warmer.

Yes.It has not the Rokkor bite and crispness but colours are pleasant and pretty warm.Sharpness across the frame is it's bigger strenght imo.I would say that no other 24mm alt can rival this tiny excellent lens for even overall sharpness.

24/2.8+NEX3 "Classic"

The OM 24/2.8 is fairly well known to be sharp across FF.

yeah, i was just wondering about the comparison to the OM 24/2, which i though was pretty comparable across the frame but a little lower contrast and better close up than the 24/2.8.

Two lenses on the way I always wanted to try out.

The Canon FD 55/1.2 S.S.C. and a
Schneider-Kreuznach Curtagon 2,8/35 for EXAKTA.

They're not a new purchase, but I've been using my two voigtlander lenses for most of my shots recently:

What type of adapter is this? Does it read Leica lens codes?

It looks like Phigment LM - NEX. I googled and got this! Never heard of this before...

It's an adapter I made for m-mount lenses.
Yes, it does read leica codes and embeds the info into EXIF. It also couples the lens to the focus assist.

Great idea, and very useful! Can you give us a rough idea on cost?

Looks cool phigment, too bad I don't have any 6bit lenses, maybe in the future, good luck with the project.

The optical read for the six bit coding is cool, but I'm pretty sure the focus assist will work whether your lens is coded or not. I prefer to control the digital zoom myself, but I can see where that would be handy for someone who likes using it, or even likes using it sometimes and turning it off other times.

In other news...

I picked up a Minolta MC W.Rokkor-HG 35/2.8 on the bay for $40. Not a spectacular price for the lens, but it looks close to new, and you can never have enough 35s.

I just picked up one of these; it should arrive tomorrow. Too bad I have nothing to use it on except an OM-4Ti... I wonder if you can still get slide film developed anywhere in Alberta?
