    Nex 7 and FE 35/2.8

    I just received the FE 35/2.8 today and thought I would post some examples. I haven't seen any previous shots from a crop camera and this lens, I'm sure there probably is some somewhere. I know the NEX 7 is soon to be discarded as a former model but my thoughts are that maybe if you are considering its replacement you might be interested. My first impressions of this lens are AF was very snappy, probably the fastest AF lens I own. I did not notice any hunting and the lens never missed focus. When holding this lens it feels very light, similar to the sigma 19/2.8. So far I have been impressed with the results the lens produced even though it was a grey overcast day and a little dark.

    f/6.3:

    I think the dumping of the NEX 6/7's that's going on on all the Buy and Sell boards is a mistake.

    I am now looking at my NEX 7 as a high quality 1.5X tele-extender for the new native E-mount lenses

    Exactly. Same for my NEX-7 and NEX-5N.
    With best regards, K-H.

    I agree, I'm looking forward to seeing how the 70-200/4 performs.

    Now that I've had more time with the lens I know can add that it struggles to focus in low light and often misses focus unless there is some backlighting in low light. Here are some more examples


    ISO 100 f/2.8 1/200


    ISO 1600 f/2.8 1/200
