    re: Fun With Sony _____

    There's lots of people having fun with Sony this month.

    Dyxum is running "April Foolishness", a month long pic-a-day challenge with just one prime lens.

    See here for the subforum.

    I have selected my most expensive body (the A850) with my cheapest prime (a Helios 35/2.8 M42 lens from a "10 €" grab box at a local camera store)

    Here's a few of my submissions sofar:







    Check it out, these crazy challenges bring out a lot of creativity in people.

    @Pegelli: Based on the results, I'd say the lens needs no apologies. Pixel-peepers might not approve, but they're still some pretty darned nice pictures.

    Agree, for the price I payed I can't fault the lens

    However it can produce some funky bokeh when you have the wrong background:


    Also closer to the borders it can create some interesting "glows" around the light areas that are sometimes fine, but also sometimes not desired (see above the right bud):


    However I'm having fun with it, so no complaints really.

    re: Fun With Sony _____

    @Pegelli: I have to admit that bokeh isn't the most attractive. I've seen quite a few lenses produce at least a little of that glow effect, at least under some circumstances, so I'd have a harder time faulting this particular one much on that account though.

    re: Fun With Sony _____

    Moon @ 1200mm f/5.9 - 50% crop(3021 pixels on long edge). Still some work to do collimating and addressing vibration/focus issues, first challenge to conquer was achieving infinity focus. I finished those mods last weekend but it wasn't until last night that the weather and the moon cooperated. Moon was only 24 above horizon, catching it overhead will help too -- less air in the way.



    The setup:

    α900+VG|F20|2xF58|16-35,24-70,135Z|STF|70-400G|50,85 1.4|16,20,28,100M,80-200APO f/2.8|28-135|500f/8|1x-3xMacro|2xMFC-1000|Tiltall+RRS, Bellows, etc.

    The SA50 is definitely an excellent lens that gets often overlooked.

    re: Fun With Sony _____

    Nice pics Ed, at first I was wondering what you had to drink before shooting the first one but after a second look I see what's going on. Great bokeh in the second one, beautiful colors.

    A little experiment from earlier today... Same scope setup and final crop as above but with about a 16.5-stop equivalent filter. Sunspots anyone?

    re: Fun With Sony _____

    Thanks Ed, I'm certainly having fun. I'm looking into a hydrogen filter to bring out more detail on the surface of the sun. I finally got around to putting the M screen in my camera, combined with a 2x magnifier it really helps with focusing the beast. Here's an example from tonight.

    α900+VG|F20|2xF58|16-35,24-70,135Z|STF|70-400G|50,85 1.4|16,20,28,100M,80-200APO f/2.8|28-135|500f/8|1x-3xMacro|2xMFC-1000|Tiltall+RRS, Bellows, etc.

    Agree, even the old Minolta version is a gem. If you can find a good 2nd hand copy it also comes highly recommended:

    Nice colours:


    And nice OOF bokeh (btw, not my 70-400):

    Great examples, Pegelli.

    Ed, not much risk really... this solar filter is designed to stare at the sun without eye damage.

    Btw, forgot to mention your moonshot is very nice. Quite a project with that lens, but well worth it I would guess.

    Thanks Pegelli, it's an astro scope that my wife bought me for my birthday last Sept. Plenty of fun to be had without sticking a camera on it but I'm just adventurous that way.

    I have some other strange stuff I'll be hanging off my lens mount in the coming days... stay tuned.

    OK, anyone see anything unusual about these pics? I'll give you a hint -- they were both shot wide open, at f/3.5.

    Click for larger, X3 link at top of resulting page for even larger.

    Dave, is it with a Tilt lens? In the first picture the front/left side of the waterfall is sharp, but the parasols are not, on the other hand on the right side the background is sharp again. So you focussed close on the left and far on the right.

    would love to see some shots with this combo.

    so what's the effective focal length on a 1.5x sensor?

    30mm

    That should give you almost a standard lens on APS-C.

    Smile Re: Fun with the NEX cameras....

    Nice pics with this super Tele !

    Here are some pics I shot with the Tilt-Adapter Nex-Contax C/Y and an 28mm f2,8 Contax lens.

    The skatepic+hand are in "normal" position the rest ist tilted.
    Nothing too special but I thought I will post something new here.

    The nice thing about the 28mm is the minimum focus distance -> 15cm !!!
    So you have a 42mm lens with real close focus ability (but a bit heavy in comparison to Contax G lenses for example)

    In the next days I will upload some more pics from Dubai.
    I visited Dubai 2 weeks ago and had a very nice time

    Greets, Ingo

    Bingo! Mirex with Mamiya 35 f/3.5 on a900. Only a couple degrees of tilt on each photo, several mm of up-shift on the first one. In that first one, the waterfall is pretty sharp all the way across, as are the bricks at the end. This was just a quickie test t work after hours, handheld SSS off. I think that if I stop down and use a tripod+MLU I can get some nice results with this setup. I also have a Mamiya 80mm macro with the adapter that allows 1:1 that I have yet to try. I'm waiting on some chipped M42 adapters before I begin shooting in earnest with these so I can ID/search each lens in LR.

    Actually, thanks for that... that site does all of what I would consider the hardest work, figuring out where to be and when. Looks like you need to be south of the equator this time of year to catch a solar transit. OTOH, it looks like I might be able to catch a lunar transit near midnight April 30 on top of a nearby hill, though it would be tricky with a first quarter moon. Tony are you lurking? Road trip?

    Re: Fun with the NEX cameras....

    newworld666, I have been shooting my NEX5 with Legacy lenses since it first came out .... (unless I have missed a even newer update than I have) I have seen not one advantage for those using these lenses in these 2 software updates. It has helped using the Nex lenses and Alpha lenses but my manual focus legacy glass shooting is the same now as it was on day one. What am I missing? How have the upgrades helped your manual focus shooting?

    Let me know what you think.

    Ok, after several attempts I finally figured out how to get the image to display properly.
    It's amazing what happens if the instructions are read.

    Re: Fun with the NEX cameras....

    Here's a few from the NEX 5 with CV 75mm f2.5 lens. I'm finally getting better at holding the camera without movement as I press the shutter. Gotta love the results!

    A seasonal photo from my NEX-5 and the latest addition to the lens cabinet...a Vivitar 90-180mm f4.5 Flat Field Macro (heavy but very interesting lens).

    Re: Fun with the NEX cameras....

    Hi guys,
    Just wondering if you can help me with a decision on a lens for my Sony Nex 5.

    Im tossing up between this one

    http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI....=STRK:MEWAX:IT
    Voigtlander Nokton 40mm F/1.4 SC Black 40 f1.4 Leica M
    or

    http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI....=STRK:MEWAX:IT
    Voigtlander Nokton Classic 35mm F/1.4 SC f1.4 Leica M

    There is about $200.00 difference between each lens so I am really not sure which one to get. I currrently just have the NEX 5 Twin Lens kit.
    I want a lens which is good for street photograph.

    Can anyone shed any light which one they would go for and would I notice a significant difference in quality of photos compared to the standard nex lens?

    Thanks for your advice

    Man, do you have a tuff choice. They are both wonderful.
    My preference would be the 40SC. For B&W it's very old school.

    The real decision would be the converted focal length.
    The FOV seems close but it really isn't.
    I tend to like wider because I see that way but between the 2 you are working with, I'd still take the 40mm.

    Thanks for your opinion,

    I think I will go with the 40SC then.

    Do you think it will take me long to adjust to using this lens with the manual focus on the NEX?

    re: Fun With Sony _____

    Nice shots everyone! I've been too busy to do any shooting, good work keeping the thread going.

    Ken, the first one is a great capture. Did you set up and wait for a bird to enter the frame or was that spur-of-the-moment?

    dekie, nice job catching the rays peeking through the clouds. Have you tried dropping the exposure a bit in PP to bring them out more?

    Neil, nice splash of color, and great bokeh on that Tamron.

    Simon, very nice composition on the dog, good job nailing the focus at f/1.7
    α900+VG|F20|2xF58|16-35,24-70,135Z|STF|70-400G|50,85 1.4|16,20,28,100M,80-200APO f/2.8|28-135|500f/8|1x-3xMacro|2xMFC-1000|Tiltall+RRS, Bellows, etc.

    Dave,

    I hate to admit it but it is a composite which is something that I rarely do. The sunset colors lasted only a couple of minutes and a pelican didn’t cross in a location that I was happy with in that short time frame. I shot the scene without the bird and photographed one the next day from the same location, then inserted it into the frame.

I need to sharpen nex ones to achieve similar results. Now, it could be dues to initial settings that both cameras apply to RAW files. I know that in canon you can adjust sharpness on RAW prior to pressing the button (have not seen this in NEX-3). Could be also that my camera is not up to specifications.
    What are your impressions?

    Well Ed,

    Firstly, I don't know how you got a zeiss nikon mount lens on a canon 30d....
    but my first reaction would be to question the conversion mount you used to do so.

    Secondly.. all my nikon mount nikkor lenses appear sharper than the zeiss
    eqivilents... but it's the coating on the zeiss lenses that separate them from the prior.

    Color & contrast of the rendered zeiss images sets them apart... not the overall detail (sharpness)
