The crispy Sigma 19mm. The best $100 I spent on my NEX-7. This is OOC. My settings have saturation and contrast at -1 and sharpness at +2.

That almost makes me want an automatic lens. That is amazingly sharp!
Here are a few shots from the yard this afternoon. Nex 7 with Carl Zeiss Jena 135mm f/3.5 at 5.6 The final shot was taken with a Leica Elmar 50mm f/2.8 and a Fotodiox focusing mount.

I agree for the price those Sigma / Nex lenses look like a great value.

Jim. educate me. I see you have a tilt shift lens but I really don't know much about them apart from the surreal pictures I have seen coming from them. They apparently are designed to serve a function in architectural photography. What is it? In this picture did you alter the perspective or the DOF or both? The Picture is great. What part did the tilt/shift play? What was the goal and what were you able to do that would not have been possible before?

Shift allows for in-lens perspective correction and can simplify panos. Tilt adjusts the plane of focus, and I believe that's what Jim employed here. He was able to point the camera up to frame his subject and use the tilt to maintain great depth on the subject without have to resort to a diffraction-inducing small aperture.

Here's another image taken with a T/S adapter using an 18mm Distagon on Nex5N, tilted to do the same as Jim's.

Dale,
to be honest i am still learning about these lenses my self and i have had little time to use it.In the shot above it allowed me to get the composition that i wanted from where i was holding the camera, without the shift it would have been a much more centered image.As i said i am still learning what the possibilities are with the lens myself

Just got myself a good reason to try the Contax G 21/2.8 on the NEX (5N). It's not a perfect lens (far corners) but it's very capable overall.

Bright colors and interesting places. Great page! Great shots and some nice lenses also.
These shots are from a walk in the woods this afternoon. All taken with Nex 7 and Minolta Zoom MD 35-70. I know I am right on the edge of HDR here but nothing else would make the detail stand out in this high contrast setting of almost four f/stops range.

When I was a boy of eight I once set in the narrow back of this car, a white one, with a famous Dutch painter and one of his paintings. He was going to change his painting for a compleet new Bruynzeel kitchen. And he did!

Totally thrilling shot, Wilhelm! A wall-hanger! Maybe, just maybe, consider cropping a bit off the bottom?
Brilliant, Michiel! Just the sort of shot I've tried many times and failed at...
