Thanks, guys. I use Silver Efex for the b/w conversions. I'm still getting to know it, so at this point its mostly starting with presets and then tweaking things till it looks right to me.

On a somewhat related note: as i get to know the Sony 35, I'm more and more impressed with the resolution and rendering, and less and less impressed with the colors. So, i do feel like i've had to process (or over-process) the images to get them where i like them.

Some photos from different occasions:

CV 85/3,5 (Nikon S mount)






18-55 Kit Lens at 18






CV 12 5,6 (f8, I'd swear)






Contax G 90 2,8 (reaally high ISO, but I like the grainy vibe)

Thank you! Samuli is actually one of my biggest inspirations, so that's high praise indeed Achieving the same kind of "presence" that he often does in his photos is something I strive for. Nice goats btw, I really like the last one.

And because I dislike posting in an image thread without posting an image, here's a recent photo from the C/Y Planar 50/1.7:

I picked up the sig 30 after all the nice images here. Its a beautiful little piece. With a vented hood it looks pretty sweet on NEX 7 to boot.

I'm thinking I'll pick it up, too. I have the 19mm already. The pair (19mm and 30mm) is back on sale for $200 at B&H right now. Anyone need the 19 and want to split the set with me?

more experimenting with the sigma 19mm. i still hate the sony controls with native lenses, but things seem to work best when i turn off AF and MF assist.

Taylor - I really like the CV15 image on the previous page.
Phillip - stunning images. How do you hold that lens so steady??
Ceder - Beautiful cathedral. What did you use for the B&W conversion?

Here are a few taken in the last couple of weeks, thankfully not shot from a moving platform through a dirty window like on the previous page. All Nex 7 and Leica 24mm Elmar.

I have a converted cam, for infrared - and with the, is it 780nm?, filter, there is not much color left... But usually I just use the sliders in LR.

And like your stuff as well!

Cheers!


sweet! where'd you get it done?

I like these Sigma 19 shots, Sebboh and Loomis. I was thinking about adding an alt 28mm to my a850 kit, for stopped down landscapes, but the more I'm thinking about it, I'm not sure I can find a 28mm full frame lens that will beat the Sigma 19/NEX combo for less than $800-900.

My Sigma 19 has been collecting dust, mainly because of the controls/handling. It's probably a little more manageable with a touchscreen... but the MF experience with AF lenses on the NEX is fairly annoying.

Nice stuff by the way. I've been pretty impressed from what I've seen of the 19 and 30 posted here. I feel like I should grab the 30 also.

These are very nice. The last is my favorite.

yeah, controls are why i've not been using it much, perhaps i just need to spend more time with it. neither AF nor focus zoom are useful for quick focusing on a moving target, but manual focus was pretty usable even for chasing my daughter when i turned off the auto focus assist. if only i could set a minimum shutter speed for auto iso with auto aperture lens.

oh, if you want a sigma 30 i can sell you mine. i've just shot a few test shots with it and will always choose the g28 over it.

couple more with the sigma 19mm:

Though it's not nearly as nice as a good MF lens, I find the sigma 19 to be the best focus by wire of the native e- mount lenses i've tried. The 30 I find to be a little sticky. The sony lenses are annoying in that they take way too much travel of the focus ring to get through the range. I suppose that might be good for macro work, but otherwise it's a pain. A revised firmware which allowed a custom focus ring "gain" would be nice.
