Really like the clarity and black and white treatment in the shot!

Another couple of images from Mexico, taken with the 16-50.

Efterklang in concert (not a fan, FWIW!); FDn 50/1.4 + Lens Turbo:

Check the crazy flare far right (was a mix of yellow and blue I think):

Thanks! Almost all my posts/shots from the past two months are with it. Copy/paste from above: I got the cheaper Zhongyi Lens Turbo for FD and it's hardly left my F3 since. Image quality issues - yes, better IQ! ;-) Slight increase in sharpness across the frame, but not the fall-off in edge sharpness I was expecting - that's probably a testament to the quality of the FD lenses. I think the far corners are a little soft, but i haven't tested it. A significant reduction in contrast overall in bright light, recoverable in RAW, and may be corrected by use of a hood, which I don't have for FD, but should try it with LT (FD are all pretty high contrast on a regular adapter). Wider angles show a fair bit of barrel distortion, correctable with +10 in ACR. Central blue spot shows up with bright scenes, especially reflective water, with a central dark subject - i think it's a flare spot caused by the LT glass reflecting back onto the sensor, and may also be responsible for the general contrast issue (just a hunch). It's partially fixable with a bit of selective blue/purple reduction, but BW conversion helps a lot!

Unless you can justify/afford a FF A7 (I can't), it's a great, fun, FF-on-the-cheap for the NEX!

Finally got round to PP my shots from my trip to Istambul in 2012.

It was my first time shooting this much with MF lenses, a lot of OOF shots, but also a lot of fun.

Used NEX-5N and CV15, CV40 (now sold and traded for CV50 1.5), MD50 1.7 and MD28 2.8.

Here are some favourites:











Full set here:
1202 Istanbul Sony

All PPed in Lr4. No side trips to Nik filters, yay!

Thanks for looking!

What he said . . .

Waiting for an early morning train . . . may as well pull out the camera. Zeiss 35/2 Distagon with Metabones III on a NEX-5N. Both shot at f/2

I'm no climate scientist or biologist, but I don't think I've ever seen butterflies, flies and wasps out in late October/November in Ireland before...

@CoDaQue, beautiful muted colors on the Turkey set. I could happily shoot the Galata bridge the rest of my life and not get bored. Great job, really captures a time in the city that I don't think most tourists are there.

Turkey is just fab for photos.

^ Really nice!

A random set of my first shots with the Minolta M-Rokkor 40/2 CLE on the NEX-5N. Nothing fancy . . . just getting started.
