    Was this taken in Southeast Asia?

    Something about the colour reminds me of it.

    No. It was taken in England.

    Rose, 2012
    NEX-7
    35-105mm Zoom-Nikkor

    I purchased the lens in 1984, 28 years ago: I guess that's old.

    Nice, I love old lenses. They might not be the "best" by modern standards but they have character.

    If you allow Nex 5 shots then I can post some with my oldest lenses, a 1951 Elmar 50/3.5 or a 1956 Elmar 90/4. Most my other MF stuff is 60's and later.

    Yes,I do agree you. That's why I bought the Nex7 without kit lens. Do please post pictures taken with old manual lenses.

    Thanks hakkalo, here's my first then, a shot taken July 2011 but until today not processed yet.

    Pentax-110 lens has only fixed f2.8 aperture. I modified the lens to C mount and used C Mount to Nex E Mount adapter.

    Re: NEX-7 with old lenses

    Great work here in this thread, all these old lenses have a lot of character, special bokeh, glow due to old or absent coatings and early glass. What is there not to like

    Ah, someone else with this little gem.
    I love it on my NEX, sharp from corner to corner and great rendering.

    And some more (from the same walk) with the elmar 90/4, it looks more like a gun sight but it's a real capable lens, no problems to use wide open.

    Re: NEX-7 with old lenses

    The ability to use almost any old lens is what attracted me to the NEX 7. I was a little apprehensive spending so much on the camera to begin with, but once I started shooting with it I never looked back. Sold all my Canon gear and made the switch to Sony. All photos below are from my wonderful little 7/

    CZ Jena Biotar 58/2 (1959 M42)


    Biotar with Minolta Close Up lens No.2 attached


    Sigma Mini Wide 28/2.8 in C/Y mount


    Helios 44-2 with Close Up lens No.2


    And one of my favorite lenses, the Minolta MD 35/2.8. A great all arounder on the NEX with a very nice close focusing distance. There is just something spiritually right about using old Minolta glass on NEX cameras.
