    Lovely portrait Cindy, quite a contageous smile.

    I guess you're training for "week 50" over on Dyxum. For those of you who don't know what that is look here: Back to the 50's

    I went out training today with my NEX 5 + Leica M Summicron 50/2 DR. Forgot to note down the apertures, but all shots were either taken at f 4 or 5.6 (didn't use anything else the whole trip)

    @ MFD and slightly cropped:


    For a 50 mm on APS-C I still think this shot still has a "widish" feel:

    Flemish Farmhouse & Reflection #2:


    It's not too late if you want to join. Normally Dyxum is "Alpha only", but like with this event last year it's all mounts/all brands, as long as the focal length (in real terms, not sensor size 35 mm equivalent) is 50 - 59 mm.

    pegelli,
    I have signed up to use 6 of my 50's that week. I think I will add one more and use a different lens every day. 50 is my most used and favorite focal length. Guess you can figure that out, since I have more than 7 50's for use on my SLT and NEX.

    I plan to stick to my NEX7 and new A99 (just got it this week...thanks Monza). It is fun that all brands are allowed into this special challenge.

    Flemish farmhouse is really eye-catching.

    Cindy, I saw your nice and exotic line up of 50's in the thread and I'm glad you will join with all that fine glass. My oldest (from the 5 I'll use) is only ~1950, so I can't stand in your shadow, but still I think it's again going to be a fun event for all participants.

    Just a quick shot from a triathlon at the end of the summer. a900 and ZA 85/1.4, reprocessed in LR4. I could throw a bit more light on the faces but then it wouldn't be what I saw. Camera was about an inch off of the water.

    Crap, the photo didn't load. Can't figure out why as I have done it before the same way, straight from my desktop.

    re: Fun With Sony _____

    Breakfast with my son and daughter this morning. My son was clowning around too much for me to photograph, so I took photos of my daughter only. a900 and $150.00 Minolta 50/1.4. The lens seems to be a winner now that I might have fixed the back focus issue with the micro adjust. Minimal post processing.

    Water polo practice. With flash. Just a bit of a crop at the bottom. ZA 135/1.8 and the dedicated flash. I hate flash but love the picture. I am thinking I need the Minolta 200/2.8 but after carrying around the a900 rig with flash, and trying to watch Lola as well as my son, a big rig makes old wrists tired.

    Some from the skateboard park in Sunny Isles, FL. Used the a900 and the 135/1.8. Used the high frame rate setting. Needed to crop. The larger files that I have on my computer really sing.

    No, sunrise! It was too windy this year in the afternoons. Pity, the evening light is beautiful here in Lake Havasu.

    re: Fun With Sony _____

    Four shots with the a900, ZA 135/1.8, the flash dedicated for the a900 and a snoot with 2 grids. Water polo practice tonight. I like the effects of the snoot on the players at night when I hit the photos. The shots aren't for everyone but I am trying different things.

    No post processing. Wish the files looked like the files from an M9 but an M9 can't do what the a900 can do in these situations.

    re: Fun With Sony _____

    The amazing thing about flash is that the flash does all of the work in stopping motion instead of the shutter. You should try some shots with a slower shutter speed and rear curtain flash. It should make for some interesting shots.

    A few more skateboard pictures. Pretty much uncropped. Shot with the a900 and the Minolta 24/2.8. It is a pretty stellar performer. Six shots showing a skater ascending then descending a ramp. Shot on burst mode. I am sure I could do more with these pics. I didn't have a chance to get beneath the skaters as they were ascending the ramp so I could get a different angle.

    I layed my hands on an original Minolta 16/2.8 Fisheye. It's a real fun lens to use on FF.

    Sony a900 and old Minolta 501/4. Have this and a few others stored on Flicker but I can't seem to post those images on this site.

    Not my kid skateboarding but since I was standing in a great spot I thought I would take this and other shots.

    I agree. The fisheye lens is on my "must get" list.

    I know. I lucked into mine. So far the lens lives up to the reputation. I'm looking forward to using it on the FF NEX if and when that comes out and it supports A-mount as rumored.

    Above shot with the a900 and Minolta 24/2.8 at 3200. I cropped a bit then converted the file in SFX2. The shot could be lightened a bit. The kicker is new to Muay Thai. I go to the boxing gym at least one day a week with my 12 yr old and since he doesn't let me take pics, I take pics of others.

    Second or third place finisher in the women's elite division at the Nautica Triathlon. She had a commanding lead after the bike but lost it in the run to the eventual winner. I missed shots of the eventual winner because I was CHIMPING.

    Guess I am the only one posting on this subsite. More from the Nautica Triathlon.

    These guys were checking out the surf prior to the start. The conditions this year were some of the roughest in the last few years.
