    I'll be interested to see how the corners look on the 25, which the old tests said was the very sharpest. Mine is great in the center, but the center and the corners don't focus the same---also with the 20. The 42 I found just great across the frame, but oof rendering zeiss-like.

    do we think it's the same sensor as 5n/r?

    Re: Fun with the NEX-6

    You need to stop the lens down to get the corners in focus. Close to f/8 for infinity shots. This has something to do with the lens rather than the sensor/camera. The one with the most contrast in the pen F line up on the APS-C sensor other than the 38/3.5 Macro is the 100/3.5 (also the cheapest one can find!).

    I finally have a superb normal lens for the NEX. A quick snap.

    Re: Fun with the NEX-6

    It is difficult describe how delighted I am with the little Zeiss 32/4. I just have to figure out a way to attach a filter thread to it (~26mm) to add a hood and such.

    A few more snaps (except the first 2 not all are in focus):

    Re: Fun with the NEX-6

    Matt - how's the AF speed with the 16-50? I've heard mixed things.

    Also - in your first boat shot (with Rocinante on the right side), the lines/masts against the sky at the top look. . . pretty bad. Do you know if that's the lens? JPG processing? or? If that's the best the lens can do at 50, eek. (oh, it may be that they're just out of focus? but it looks more like lens aberrations to me).

    Taylor: It's my sloppy processing. Here's a jpg of the RAW file converted to DNG by Lightroom 4. There's a bit there, but, Lightroom can get rid of it. AF speed seems OK. I'll bring it to the SLUG gathering.

    For me this is a great combination despite the extra weight/size of the f2 macro

    Re: Fun with the NEX-6

    This is a general comment of nearly every photo that has been posted to this thread. They are extremely well done, in sharp focus, good exposure, with exception of the B&W's they are bright with vivid colors. Well done everyone.

    Re: Fun with the NEX-6

    shac, beautiful shots! i have a question about the pics taken with the kit lens. i'm trying to decide between the nex-6 and x-e1 with there kit zoom lenses. for me the nex ticks all the boxes except the out of camera jpg quality where fuji seems to have an advantage. the shots u took with the kit zoom lens are the first nex photos ive seen that give it a good fight. can u tell me how u took these photos and if u did any processing/filters?
    thanks peter

    Re: Fun with the NEX-6

    A few from the Olympus pen F 70/2. This is not the sharpest lens in the pen F line up but the draw, nevertheless is enchanting. Incredibly foggy conditions.

    Peter - thanks. Well this is the old kit lens, a friend has the new one and seems to like it. It's not great in the corners but centrally it's quite fine. I usually use manual primes, even when hiking/backpacking.
    One thing I like about the Nex series is their small size and weight. As I said too, the Nex-6's handling and menus are a vast improvement over the 5N. The former also seems more solid. I think it's clearly smaller than the Fuji APS bodies isn't it? The only changes from the 5N I don't especially like are the SD card is much harder to extract in the 6, and when hiking the body hangs differently and swings more. Neither big deals.
    As to processing - I shoot RAW and convert using Adobe DNG, then a little work in Adobe Raw (black-white points, tad of contrast and clarity and maybe a hair of Vibrance), then into PS if I need to sharpen and/or size for the web. Does that help. Most of the last shots I put up were shot as jpgs by the way.
    Cheers

    Sinterklaas (St.Nicholas) arrived from Spain today. Quite a few kids around.

    My "new" Leitz Elmar 90/4 came in handy.

    vivek, the 42 f1.2 is such a lovely lens. So narrow depth of field and yet not all that big. Simply a brilliant lens to own

    Re: Fun with the NEX-6

    Though it balances well on the 6, it is a very difficult lens to work with, especially when there are no second chances. For flowers and other stationary subjects, to have nice fuzzy background that is a different story.

    Those look good Andrew. That lens seems to be pretty flare resistant.

    Vivek, your Leitz 90 f:4,0 is the Makro-Elmar?

    Re: Fun with the NEX-6

    Philber: It isn't. It is the old 3 element Elmar (http://forum.getdpi.com/forum/leica-...ent-elmar.html), possibly rarer than the current Macro Elmar.

    It is quite easy to use as a real macro lens if you add an extension ring to the lens head. Leica did make those extension rings. Or, in case of use on a NEX, NEX extension rings or Leica M extension rings. Many possibilities.

    On the new M (liveview) also such use is possible.

    This is purely an experiment (Lighting is horrid).
