    Re: Fun with the NEX-6

    David,

    I used a Dremel to round off the sharp edges, and reduce its length (amount of protrusion into the grip's space) by about 2mm—makes all the difference; before I shaped it, I was getting a red mark on my middle finger, quite uncomfortable. Perfect comfort now.

    If anyone's interested, I have some images from the OM 50/3.5 macro on the tilt adapter on my blog; this first one shows tilt and reverse tilt images, and a brief, non-technical description:

    Scheimpflug effect, with images: Olympus OM 50/3.5 lens, tilt adapter | kitlaughlin

    I have another one coming tomorrow. I have taken many images while in this beautiful city, and I wish I could post them here, but I can't afford the bandwidth while on the road, so am linking to the blog—hope this is OK.

    I have been on a 90-day blog challenge, so the bandwidth while travelling (using the iPhone hot spot) has taken priority over uploading to my own site, the usual method I use for here.

    Thanks Kit - No I see exactly what I missed the first time. I have the older version of the Hawk's adapter but am thinking of the newer one as well so this is very useful
    Thanks also for the info on the tilt adapter - I've been looking at those as well. They look good from the link

    Summer afternoon at the lake. NEX6 with Contax G 21mm f/2.8 Biogon.



    Weathered boathouse window. NEX6 with Contax G 21mm f/2.8 Biogon.



    I was able to mount this lens w/o clipping the rear element fins by first mounting the adapter to camera and then attaching lens to adapter.

    Re: Fun with the NEX-6

    Even though I love MF lenses on my NEX (I basically consider it a "digital back" for old lenses) I took only native E-mount AF lenses with me on vacation this year. It was a total family affair and photography shouldn't come in the way of that.

    Here's some results with the E55-210. These puffins were in the wild on Cape Dyrhólaey in Iceland, but not very afraid of people so we could approach them quite close. As you can imagine I was quite happy with the results:

    This one FF proof. Just dismounted from a Nikon mount and housed it in a new E mount.

    Wily old bucks are moving back into town for the duration of the hunting season, along with some female companions of course.

    Re: Fun with the NEX-6

    Two from a frigid Thanksgiving day walk in the park with the NEX6 and a 40mm f/2 M-Rokkor. Just picked up a nice mint condition copy of this lens to use with the A7R when it arrives (hopefully soon), but meanwhile it is working well with both the NEX6 and M9.

    Re: Fun with the NEX-6

    Good choice, Carl! As you may know, you need to file off the bayonet by a tiny amount to bring up 35mm frame on your M9.

    Thanks Vivek. I didn't know about filing the bayonet for the M9 so thanks for the tip.

    Re: Fun with the NEX-6

    This is the exact instructions I followed: 35mm framelines for 40mm lenses - FM Forums

    (be liberal with the taping. Tap the inside gaps. Use multiple pieces. After the filing and removing the tap bits, use a vacuum to mop up any dust that may not be visible.)
