    nice pics Taylor, the fish eye adapter for the 16mm is impressive, especially for a light travel solution

    Pegelli - the Zuiko and the Nex seems to be an excellent combination

    Thanks, and yes they are, allthough I like one of my other Zuiko's (the 85/2) even better, but the 135 is a nice little pocket rocket and sometimes the extra reach is helpful.

    Excellent shots Taylor, although I am not fan of that "mini" effect, but it is surely fun to try.

    I just saw Your cruise collection on flickr. I see You had very nice trip. Both 5N and 7 performed well, as I see.

    Re: Fun with the NEX cameras....

    Thanks mazor, DjordjeJ!

    I'm definitely happy with the 5N and 7 from the trip. Quite early in the trip I wished that I had the 18-200 zoom :-) I definitely see the utility of a lens like that for vacation situations where you don't want to lug several lenses around.

    My wife was pretty happy with the 18-55. I brought the 55-210, the 16mm + adapters, and my CV 35/1.2. Oh, and the SEL 30mm macro. That was kind of a dead weight except I did take it out on one excursion where I was worried about getting the Nokton too dusty. It worked reasonably well. The Nokton was good, I left it at f/1.2 most of the time (using a var-ND filter), which meant that I had some pinkish cast on the photos to adjust out in post.

    I think that if I had only brought the 16+fisheye and an 18-200 then I would have been pretty satisfied. As it is, I'm glad I took the Nokton as it produces some great photos, however.

    re: Fun With Sony _____

    Mikal, I agree with Arjuna it's probably a hair. Did you manage to get it out?
    In case you need it here is a nice article about sensor cleaning that might be helpful.

    This morning I sat at my desk and looked into the garden and saw something sparkling. It's always useful that have a camera with a clean sensor and and macro lens ready, because about 5 min. after taking these shots the drops were either evaporated or blown off.

    A clean sensor and a macro? I agree, but I now need a macro. The first eggplants of the season are coming in and the Minolta 85/1.4 doesn't do it justice.

    re: Fun With Sony _____

    A few shots that I just came across, again. Taken this past St. Patrick's Day in Coral Gables, FL. Gear was the a900 and the 135/1.8, which is easily one of the best lenses I have ever used. It is this one lens more than any other lens that makes me think I should keep the a900.

    Most of the colors are straight out of the box. I fiddled with a few things, but my PS skills are non existent so I didn't damage the photos too much. I cropped the shot of the guitar player drinking a beer.

    No flash.

    Mikal, a set of extension tubes does wonders, I've taken many good macro's with the 85/1.4 that way. Closed down at 4 or 5.6 it's bitingly sharp even at short range.

    I agree 20min would have extended the shadow perfectly, but as my wife reminded me this was not a photography expedition... In her defence, She has demonstrated superb patience in the past on loads of trips, so I was just taking it easy with a little NEX kit. Might be a holiday, but I still needed to shoot for the fun of it

    No, I stitched it using hugin. The inbuilt stitcher seems to really struggle with skies. Also it only outputs a jpeg file.

    I just set up my tripod and did it the old fashioned way.

    Cindy, thank you for the kind comments.

    Re: Fun with the NEX cameras....

    Unfortunately it isn't perfect yet.
    My idea is to have the focus set to infinity, when the body cap is completely pushed in.
    Problem is, that the lens on the Konica sits quite far from the film plane and so in the current state, focus is far beyond on the Nex.
    Might work on it today, or take a look in my box with broken P/S-cameras, if there's something better.

    nice acquisition OlliL. In keeping with compact and small, the oly penf 40 f1.4 has shorter flange distance than canon FD, and overall is a very tiny lens for a f1.4.

    I already looked at the Pen F lenses myself.
    The FD, I only bought, because I had the adapter already.
    I won't have that lens constantly attached to the camera, since it's even heavier than the body itself.

    re: Fun With Sony _____

    Wife's first triathlon today. Had the a900 ready to go, lenses packed, batteries charged. DIDN'T REALIZE UNTIL WE ARRIVED AT THE BEACH THAT I LEFT IT AT HOME. Luckily I took an M6 and 50/1.4 lux and some great color film. Won't be posting anything in this forum but might on the Analog forum.

    Do I need to tell anyone how upset my wife was with me?

    feel sorry for you man, don't want upset wife,
    Maybe you are carrying too much camera gear in terms of systems. If you are doing a sony day out, leave the leica at home.

    re: Fun With Sony _____

    Mazor, I always take the M6 with me when I take the a900 because I don't want to change lenses and I may want an option other than an 85/1.4 or 135/1.8. I had the 24/70/2.8 but didn't like it too much.

    It worked out very well today anyway because my late father bought me the M6 body a year before he died 11 years ago. He never met my wife but I know he would think it was a great way to use the camera.
