Some from today, with NEX-6 + 16-50/3.5-5.6 OSS and 55-210/4.5-6.3 OSS, 2 lenses that are not loved by anybody here.

Oh, saw some nice pictures with MD 35-70... I want to get the Minolta zoom and join the party


Hey, I like seeing the photos people take with the native zooms!

I am on the fence with the Minolta. I like it, but I'm too slow with manual focus, esp. if I'm out hiking with other people...

I'm still eyeballing the OMD. The 16-70 Zeiss looks great for NEX, but there's still not a great native macro lens option, and Oly has the well-reviewed 60mm.

Really wish someone would make a contemporary AF 35-70 w/ macro at the 70 end for NEX. (C'mon Zeiss)



Yes, using adapted glass is slow when I'm hiking with others, and sometimes OSS helps a lot, esp with longer lens. I don't want others to wait for me for setting up tripod and shoot slowly ...

Yes, I'm eyeing over the OMD, the EM-1 is really attractive, especially with the 12-40. The sensor seems almost as good as NEX-6 (Sony is slightly better but definitely not 1 stop better) but the Oly lens is faster. Weather (and coffee?) seal lens and body, fairly good macro (~ 1:3 ?), EVF AND touchscreen, seemingly much better wifi/smartphone remote (the Sony app is crap) .... sounds like I keep finding reasons to buy one

But NEX-6 + 16-70 is lighter and smaller than EM-1 + 12-40

Slowly working through the photo pile from the summer, here's some shots of Högakustenbron, Sweden's longest suspension bridge. Both taken with NEX-7 and Contax Zeiss 25/2.8, the second one through the front window of a car.

I would like to hear what you think of that lens, i think it is an interesting one but couldn't find much about it.

went kayaking around monterey and took my most expendable kit, nex-3 (classic) + sigma 30mm:






















in retrospect, perhaps a longer lens would have been better.

I rather enjoy the wide open ocean views, Sebboh. A few more from my watery set... 5N & either 24-E or 50-E.

It's a nice little lens, though it's very soft wide open. The tree I posted earlier was taken at f/4, and it's had a lot more sharpening applied than I normally use. Wide open it's almost useless. It sharpens up considerably at f/5.6 though, and for my purposes I rarely feel the need to use a larger aperture than that anyway. The other photos I've posted were taken at f/8 if I remember correctly. It's said to have weak corners, but on my NEX-7 it's sharp across the frame, and it actually works quite well with my Speed Booster also.

I did have a hard time choosing between the 25/2.8 and 28/2.8. The 28/2.8 seemed like the safest choice, so I went with the 25/2.8 :P Partly because it was further from the Sigma 30/2.8 I already had, and partly because it seemed like the more interesting lens. I found some comments from Samuli here on FM about the lens that also helped me decide on the 25. I've only had the lens for a couple of months though, but what I've seen from it so far has been very promising and it's already one of my favourite lenses. I should also point out that my lens is a MMJ, I've heard that the AE versions might be worse.

And since this is an image thread, here's a photo of a shingle field at Snöberget, close to Niemisel in northern Sweden. Contax Zeiss 25/2.8@f/8
