    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    Hmmm - perhaps it's time to re-evaluate the R 21-35, I wasn't so impressed on the 5N, but it seems to have done better on the 7

    here are a couple from today:
    Exif information should be intact:

    That 21-35 is looking pretty good to my eyes, Jono.
    Actually Erwin wrote in rather high praise of this lens !

    Kinds regards.

    Excuses, excuses. As far as I can see, you don't have an f/1.8 version. What's all this hesitating about, I wonder

    I can use the f1.4 version at f1.8 can't I?
    And why aren't you using a NEX I wonder? (is it the same reason that stops you driving hairy cars?)

    Shhh, don't tell anyone... I'm considering the NEX 7, but they're not available here yet.

    Jono: in the first image above—is that a Massey Ferguson TEA-20??? I learned to drive on one of these... we lived "in the bush" in Australia, and the bush looks nothing like your countryside!

    Anyhow, that lens looks fine on the '7'. Cheers, kl

    I'm trying to avoid adapters. The Ziess is autofocus. An A-mount lens will also autofocus on a NEX, but only on an appropriate adapter, adding to weight and size. And for this focal length, its the compact size and general portability that is key. I'm pretty sure over the next year or so we will see a rash of new E mount lenses from Sigma, Tamron and possibly a few more from Sony and Zeiss. For now, the Ziess 24mm looks the best bet for a compact, high quality autofocus general purpose lens. Hopefully I will receive it soon and will report back when i can test it out.

    I can understand your point and quite agree with it! I do see some advantages and use for the old, abandoned/orphaned SLR system lenses like Leica, Canon FD, Olympus, Minolta, Konica, M42, etc when there is a proper tilt/shift adapter is available. With movements, there are some surprises as to which system lenses fare better than some of the more fancied ones.

    HI Kit
    I think it's a TEA-20 . . . but I think it's just a Fergie rather than a Massey Ferguson. It was made in 1954!
    I sound vague; - the tractor belongs to Emma, not to me! (sometimes I am allowed to drive it though!)

    all the best

    Still playing with the 21-35. It's an odd range - but I like it!

    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    @ Jono; that lens looks fine to me. I missed one for € 900,-- Is that cheap?

    @ Vivek; Nice candid in that bus; you used the expandable screen to focus or did you prefocus?

    Here are some of mine. In contrast to the 80-100 Zeiss, the 35-70 gives me a lot of trouble to focus @ infinity, the adapter is just passed, I think.

    Michiel, Both. I still have to get used to the restricted movements of the NEX screen. I hope, I won't rip it off since I am so used to the fabulous G1 and GH-2 swivel screen.

    I thought that 2 was the best - but 3 is pretty damn good too!

    That is a good price - I paid £900 for mine, and I thought that was a pretty good price as well.

    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    Attended a reception tonight at the Lowe Art Museum which is hosting the Beaux Arts Festival. One of my students was included in the Student Artists Showcase, but she was a no-show. After the reception, I decided to test the NEX-7's Handheld Twilight mode. Here is the result using the Zeiss 24mm f/1.8

    Hi There
    Well, it's no substitute for an M9 - because the whole rangefinder thing is the real deal (for me at least).
    There's lots of ways to criticise the NEX7, but if you set it up and forget, then it works pretty well, the ergonomics are good, and the focus peaking is, as MR says; a revelation. It's fun and rewarding to shoot, and if you have the helicoid adapter, it's odd and interesting shooting a noctilux at 10" and a 28 'cron at 6".
    I have a friend, who's definition of good technology is Not Irritating - the NEX7 really does qualify . . . but it isn't a Leica!

    Oh Yes - you can use it - make sure to get the Hawks Factory helicoid M adapter for use with Leica lenses. Then switch on the focus peaking.

    As I say, it's no replacement for an M . . . but it might just be a replacement for that backup dSLR . . and it is sweet to shoot with.

    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    A few using the Olympus pen F 25/2.8 (wide open and ISO800):

    It was a bit nippy. Could have been warmer for a steadier hand.

    Inside (unpleasant window light) at close distance (also f/2.8 but ISO100):

    Not much post processing done though everything was captured RAW and put through LR.

    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    This is our friends son, at her reception, in a very dark restaurant.
    Shot wide open at 1600 ISO. I am going to love these Zeiss lenses!

    Eleanor, the Hawks adapter is made with a short helicoid in the adapter so that lenses can focus closer. I'm using them with some LTM lenses (with an M adapter in between) and even a Leica R 21-35 (again with an M adapter).

    There are a couple of threads about the Hawks here.

    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    Had a little walkabout today with my son (11) so he could complete his photography homework.

    NEX-7 Dynamic Range Test by Carlos Echenique, on Flickr

    First shot with Zeiss 24mm, second with the Sony 16mm. I titled the second one "Dynamic Range Test" because (I think) it shows how well the NEX-7 holds up under these conditions. The sun is directly behind the upper right corner of the building, yet the building is not lost in shadow.

    My preference is based on my own use ... not valid for anyone else.

    Dupont Ink however has been unsurpassed.

    It looks like a glass building, quite possibly surrounded by other buildings (ie. behind the camera).

    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    Here are three shots taken with the 28 'cron (yes, really) with the helicoid adapter. None of them has been cropped at all - lovely bokeh as well!
    I think they are all at f2, but of course, it's not in the exif and I'm not 100% certain









    Pretty sharp as well!

    HI Bob
    I've no idea what a Sailor "King of Pen" is - and to be honest, I don't write a great deal these days, but I do like my old Montblanc

    all the best

    Amazing close up work Jono!! You sure this is not a substitute for the Leica!;-) you are sending some really awesome images taken with the nex7. keep 'em coming! Wonder when this camera will be available in the US?

    I love the drain stopper and drain. There is just enough detail at the bottom to make it a really cool shot. Well done.

    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    Terry, Eleanor; thanks.
    It's no substitute for the M9, 'cos it doesn't have an optical rangefinder with a fixed view of the world. And there's that special zing of a leica lens on a full frame sensor without an AA filter.
    Sure is good fun though!
