May I suggest a Leitax mount is the most appropriate for this beauty?

I didn't know Leitax made Fuji X or Sony NEX mounts... I ordered a Novoflex.

Oops! I figured you were putting it on a DSLR.

Leitax does have Leica-R for X and E, and so it's only a matter of time.

I picked up the Sigma 30mm Art for my a77. IMO it's the most underrated lens out there. For around $550 you get an unbelievably beautiful lens.

Nikkor 24/2.8 AIS in great condition for use on A7 and on GH4 for video. Took a few snaps today on A7 and looks pretty good across the frame at f/4 and f/5.6.

yeah, i always hated that about rokkors and olympus OM lenses. if you feel like modding it, you can actually remove the aperture ring (don't lose that ball bearing!) and file a notch or two into it for an extra click stop or two between f/1.7 and f/2.8.

i just got a jupiter-9 (terrible build but beautiful painterly look):










and i've been missing the unique look and small size of the olympus pen f 42/1.2 that i sold recently, so i picked up a beater copy to use for portraits and funky stuff. unfortunately, it has a bit of fungus growing around the edges i'll have to see if i can take care of:





it does a much better job of simulating the petzval look on my a7 than the recent lens designed to be a fake petzval :

Cool. The 42 does a much better job covering the frame than the 25 did. Did you have to crop any?

I like the vignetting. It suits the overall draw very well.

I added a couple of Zeiss lenses, a C/Y Distagon 35/2.8 and a Hasselblad S-Planar 135/5.6.

I bought a Zeiss/Contax Distagon 28mm f2 MMG on eBay this morning, to go with yesterday's 21mm f2.8 MMJ. I'm hoping I have better luck with these lenses and the Novoflex adapter than I did trying to use my ZE lenses on the Metabones...
