Nice photos of Hong Kong Andrew. Here is one from Santa Monica, California. NEX-5, Zeiss ZM 35 f2.0

That first shot at the top, I don't think my camera would have handled that so well, is the NEX-5 known for good dynamic range? Was there any pp?

It is an overcast day and the sky is still blown out. That's nothing any other current APS-C sensor couldn't do. It is a nice shot, though, and well exposed.

The colors on the 2nd 28mm Skopar shot are very nice.

It is not always the NEX's fault if shots aren't that sharp, despite a Zeiss lens...
Whew, sharpness issues seem to have gone away...

philber: would you say that the zm35mmf2.8 is as sharp at infinity as it is at medium distances?

The shots were all processed through corner fix to remove color issues. Then I ran them through my usual PP process. I am finding that he NEX files do have a little headroom to reclaim blown highlights somewhat. They are nowhere near my 1ds2 files, but given what the camera is, I think that they are quite good.

Personally, is was a real pleasure to carry the NEX and a few small lenses for the day. I know that my back sure appreciated it

I have shots with the ZM18mm that I'll post later today, once I have built the corner fix profile.

Thanks for starting this thread Andrew. Here are a few I have handy with ZF25...

Very nice Sebboh! Would you be able to post a pic of that lens mounted on the NEX? I am seriously considering picking one up...

thanks, the lens is definitely not a pancake (or lightweight) but it is noticeably smaller and better balanced on the NEX than any slr 50mm i've tried. i posted some more shots from and of the lens on the "mirrorless alt thread". it is by far my most used lens on the NEX. a couple shots of it on the camera:

dpap, I am not a sharpness fiend, and not into 100% crops of corners wide open. I have a simple sharpness test which is pretty close to what pictures I take most: I take a picture with a lot of details and colours from close up to very distant objects (infinity starts well before things get very distant, and I am interested in what happens all the way through, not only where infinity starts. Then I look at a 100% crop of the centre. If it looks "almost" as sharp as though it were not a crop, that is sharp enough for me.
Does the NEX + Biogon 35C pass this test? Definitely. Though, in terms of rendition, it looks more like a ZE/ZF 50/85 f:1.4 than like an MP lens. Details are subtly integrated rather than highlighted.
I did one such example today for you. Please forgive the total lack of artistic merit. Aperture was f:8.0.

Great everyone.

I just was too curious not to try out. Here are shots with Nikkor 24-70 f2/8 G with NEX.
