A couple of photos from the first race meeting of the year at my local circuit...

All taken with a Sony NEX-7 and a Tokina 300mm f2.8 AT-X lens in Canon FD mount.

Cheers,

Simon.


Great shots Simon.

I'm very interested in how you find the Nex7 perform in a motorsport application, particularly as I assume that FD-fit Tokina is manual focus?


Thanks, glad you like the photos.

Yes, the lens is manual focus. I have been using a GH2 until moving to the NEX-7 recently. I find the NEX-7 much more effective at this type of photography than the GH2 thanks to the superb EVF and focus peaking feature. I haven't tried manual focus tracking yet, so these were all pre focused. However, being able to see (thanks to focus peaking) when the subject moves into, through and out of the plane of focus makes things so much easier.

Cheers,

Simon.

Very good colors and really nice feeling of depth. Actually its pretty amazing.. 63 yrs old lens and I would say it has better way of rendering that a lot of today.

You are quite right. I had mine up for sale and I just withdrew it from the market. This is worth keeping.

I would say it does make 3D.. and pretty often. Or simply "non-flat".

The bokeh from the trioplan is pretty trippy!

Here are some recent ones I've posted to my flickr.

Somebody noted a relative dearth of SEL1018 images, so I'll share a few more






(This was a portrait-orientation shot that got re-cropped to landscape-orientation)

I am still playing around with this ancient Leitz Elmar 9cm, 4.0 on my Nex 5n. This picture is a really good example of the lens character. It is full image, no cropping, wide open at F:4. I just added some sharpening to the RAW file but nothing else. I think the lens is very flattering to skin tones.

Were these shot wide open? They look quite sharp.


rokkor 58/1.8:



I love this shot, excellent work, was it a 58/1.8, or was it a 58/1.2(or 1.4) shot at 1.8? As I don't see it listed here:

If it was a 58/1.8, I'd like to see some more from it.

G45 wide open on the 7. Tomorrow, this will likely be covered in snow.

the first lux shot was f/2 the other was wide open.

that was a typo, the last shot was with the rokkor 58/1.2 wide open. I'll post more of those in the f/1.2 thread. I decided that the rokkor beats the lux as a birding lens - easier to focus and sharper in periphery.
