I like the shot, coloured, but you might want to run some noise reduction on it. The color noise is particularly distracting. Once it's cleaned up, it'll be a stunner.

So I was listening to this Paul Simon song, "American Tune" on the flight home and staring out the window. When he got to this...

"And I dreamed I was dying
I dreamed that my soul rose unexpectedly
And looking back down at me smiled reassuringly
And I dreamed I was flying"

...that's when I saw this out the window with the Summarit 75.


were you in a U2 spyplane? nice shot.

great shots, and i'm not sure if i mentioned it when you asked earlier, but the jupiter-3 should fit the bill nicely for a portrait lens. it's even smaller than the g45 and has the very unique and often sought after look (wouldn't call it smooth) typical of a fast sonnar design.


Thanks for the suggestion. Looks like the Jupiter 3 should be cheaper, too, which is good, as I'm having difficulty now justifying the cost of the 58/1.2 when other options are so much cheaper (including the Canon 55/1.2). I didn't think I'd mind the weight, but the contrast with the G45 makes me smile every time I pick up the G45 and sling it around my neck. I'll keep my eyes peeled for a good buy on the Jupiter. The bokeh can get kinda funky looking though.

I do need to shoot a bit more with the Rokkor first. I just found out my dad has the MC Rokkor 50/1.4 he never uses, so if I were to part with the 58/1.2 that'd make it easier.

Was also considering the Canon LTM 50/1.8, too bad it is plagued by oil issues

The joy--and peril--of legacy glass: so many options.

Adam, congrats on your new cam! It didn't take you any time at all to make it sing. If you are new to the NEX, don't miss out of the possibility to do close-ups with helicoid adapters. They exist for M-mount, and should soon be released also for Contax G and other RF lenses.


Thanks, I love this thread. I read every single page, it made me so excited to get out there and shoot! After shooting yesterday I realized how useful helicoids must be. I'll definitely be looking into them.

I jumped up from an 8 year old 300D. There are so many things about the NEX 6 to love.

Was that first one taken just after he knocked you down?

@ Carsten !!!
Jim, I really like your second shot, though. Your ability to see interesting shots where others (read: me) see nothing makes me envious. Please don't post too many of those...

Mcbroom-
Really nice beach shots.
The shot of the shell foam is excellent.
How does the CV 12 hold up at the edges as far as sharpness?

Philippe, sholt, thanks
Jim, love both of those

The 12 does well at the edges, OK'ish in the corners.
Here are a couple of shots I took when I 1st got it, both with more detail, use the link to go to a larger shot (bigger but not full size)

Such wonderful work, everyone.

On this page.... Mike - I especially like the morning rays series.
Jim - The broom is excellent!
sebboh, both of those are really magnificent.

I am envious of you folks who live near large bodies of water. That is what I really like to photograph, and here I am, rather landlocked.

Here are three from the summer that I finally got around to looking at. All shot with the Sony/Zeiss 24mm.



















And for something different, one shot just last week with the ZM 50 f1.5

I like the last three shots, Partitura, and find the second one really outstanding. If it were mine, I would feel very proud of that one!

Phillip, great work! Your nature landscapes are always so sharp. I also love the feel of the bus stop with the headlight in the lower right corner. Has a very mysterious feel to it. This one is from our Engine at Station 78. Really enjoying using the Nex 6.
