Looking at this thread gives me kind of schizophrenic feelings toward the NEX 6 I have. So many great shots, but so few are with any lenses I am likely to get.

Does anyone shoot any ZE lenses with an NEX? I am only very slowly making progress through this thread, and I haven't seen any examples yet of a ZE+NEX. FWIW, I have a 35/2 and 100/2, so that is what I would be shooting with (haven't decided to buy an adapter yet, so I have to rely on others :S).

those lenses perform great on the NEX, but not many people use them because they are gigantic compared to the camera. btw you need one of the more expensive smart adapters if you are going to change aperture on the NEX with a ZE lens.

couple of shots with an even bigger lens on a nex-7 leica R 350/4.8:










and one with the 50 lux pre-asph wide open:

I use a Techart smart adapter with a ZE 35 1.4. Works well so far. The bad: the tripod mount is horrifying. It's a separate piece held on with tiny, soft, uninspiring bolts and it wobbles badly. No way would I trust it for anything but level shooting (and barely that). I'm considering doing some mill work and redo the mounting holes and hardware as soon as I'm sure there's nothing electrical in the way.

A few from the backyard.

Nice shots! I am back and forth on which metabones adapter to get, but am leaning towards the adapter over the speed booster. I did the hold it next to the body thing, and the 35 at least would be pretty manageable. I havent compared the charts, but I think from what ive seen even a $600 adapter with a little bigger lens is a better play, for me, than the touit. The problem is that if i do get the adapter, then I have to find something 24ish, as that is my wide lens now.

That gotta be about like putting the 85 1.2 on it. Which, as impractical as it would be, i sure would like to try.

You see a dark vertical line above the bush. I tryed to get rid of it but it was beyond my skills in ACR. Very annoying.


this kinda thing happens to me periodically. sometimes photoshop can automatically fix vignetting and sometimes it can't.

here's one from today with the g28, seems my pre stitch corrections were't adaquate:

Nice. I don't think I've seen the bridge from that angle. The fog hanging over the city I've seen quite often.

thanks, it's taken from the parking lot of the bay area discovery museum. i redid the stitch after doing a full correction of the individual files with the flatfield plugin:

if you have an under 10 child definitely. otherwise probably not, though i was quite distracted by my 2 year old so i could have missed a lot.

your flower looks quite 3d to my eye, very nice.

Thanks sebboh. I did not think of that.
One can of course correct the vignetting in all the files before stiching.

From yesterday evening.

Lumis, the composition on the last shot is great. Alan, the wedding shots are excellent as well.
