Hey everyone, loving the images in this thread. Got this lens for the z mount a few weeks ago and I really love the rendering, sunstars, and subject isolation I can get with. Could easily become my favorite lens.

The only thing is that Iím so slow with manually focusing haha. Itís easy to shoot stationary landscapes, but Iím having a hard time getting quick candid shots of people, and forget it if theyíre moving lol.

Guess I wanted to ask if anybody has experience with adapting the 40mm m mount with the techart autofocus adapter on Nikon Z. Does it suffer a lot from the thicker sensor stack?

I went from the E mount version to VM to use the Techart adapter. I don't really notice any image quality difference in daily use. The upgrade to AF is totally worth the slight difference in corner bokeh quality in some shots. It's only something you might notice occasionally. Stopped down, I can't see a difference at all.

I just noticed on flickr that these were shot with the a6600. Is this lens like a 26mm lens on APS-C?

No, itís a 40mm. On APS-C, thatís a 60mm equivalent field of view.

As grahamgibson already mentioned it is a 60mm equivalent FL on the A6600. The crop factor of the APSC is 1.5 x the focal length of the lens.

ďFieldĒ is a measure of distance. Angle of view is a better term.

And it depends how you interpret the question. A 27mm lens on APSC cameras (except Canon) provides a ~40mm AoV. I think thatís what he was asking.

Field of View is a pretty well understood concept in this context.

And yet in an industry where technical terms matter to many, itís strange to have such wide acceptance of a technical misunderstanding.

Shoot Sony mainly. Getting an Zf. Is it wise to get this lens in E mount? This way I can shoot it on the Zf as well? Thanks.

I think that depends on a bunch of things. How often would you shoot it on Sony? If quite a bit, then that would argue for an adapted E mount version. Do you like the focus to turn the (Canon/Leica/Sony) way or do you like focus to turn the (Nikon/Pentax) way? Do you plan to use the lens for video and would potentially declick the aperture? (the Sony regular version of the lens has a declickable aperture, the Nikon version of the lens does not.) I have used several E-mount lenses on Nikon Z mount cameras with the ETZ21 adapter and I found they work well, but I prefer not having to use an adapter.

A little egg decorating yesterday (my kids with my mom). I had to pick up another copy of this lens. I have to say I like the SE version vs the previous which I had last time.

Thank you for the input! Maybe I should just go with the Z mount version.
