Ok to break up the pictures of landscapes, bugs, flowers, and people I present some tuner cars!

NEX-6 + ZE 18mm 3.5 @ either 3.5 or 5.6 I forget if I changed the aperture initially or not. *wish I had aperture rings!* Anyway a few shots of angles that other guys were not getting as they did not have tilting screens :P

Great work everyone - love that 'vanishing point' tunnel (or whatever it is) shot Lumis!

F3 + Canon FDn 35/2, wide open on all of these, I think:

phillip, please tell me, is this 50 1.8 so good wide open to worth buying or is just your talent that makes it seems good? thank you.

it is pretty good, according to Roger Cicerla it produces higher MTF50 values @f/1.8 than the Leica Summilux 50 ASPH @f/1.4.

sigma 8-16
The last intact mining dredge in Idaho--once there were 20-30. Horrible nasty things, like most mining machines This ran as recently as the late 40's, and, even with no account of damage to creek, it barely made any money. I need to climb above this someday and shoot the ravaged creek downstream. google image for "mining dredge" will bring up some great shots of these--mostly in Alaska.

I have too many lenses, and the 35 Cron-R is on my "to sell" list, but it's going to be difficult. For middle-ranges and infinity I've got other, better options. But it has a unique style for close-ups.

Philip - nice job in rendering the reds in the car / truck shots.Any special processing? I have found that the NEX 7 struggles a bit with the red channel and without some adjustments really blows them out.

That explains why there is still some LoCa from Sony's 50/1.8 in your shots? I see it especially in the shot of the Auto Union Horch. Not that it makes your pictures bad, I love these shots from a totally different character than your hallmark backlit landscapes, but that's because I have "gasoline in the blood" I guess . Anyway it should be easy to correct even from a JPG file. Thanks for sharing and your always inspiring photography Phillip! You just made me decide to post some classic cars from the weekend in the Canon board (my car pix are not alt).

I noticed it and decided that i didn't care enough to invest 2 minutes to remove it

@Philip- thanks for the kind words. My shots are never PP, all SOOC, BW+3 contrast.

I hardly ever touch RAWs anymore, coming from Nikon garbage RAW/jpgs for 12 years, I find the Sony cameras impossible to f-up, unless I shoot in manual

They never got skin tone right, the only thing I cared about when I was shooting professionally.

Also, the jpg engine for most nikon bodies up until recently was abysmal, completely inflexible and lifeless, with no options like the ones I have for my NEX 7.

Since switching to NEX, up until last night when I processed some old Nikon shots, I couldn't remember the last time I touched a RAW file. Only when I have to process old files from my Nikons do I fire up the RAW converter, because the jpgs need a barf bag.
