The 35mm f/1.7 works very nice! I haven't one, but I'm pretty sure most NEX-users saw pics of it mounted on a Sony NEX. It vignettes a bit and gives kind of a special effect to the images, but it's nice and totally worth the money.
Do anybody know where I could get one in Austria without Paypal and credit cards?
I thought that review was amazing. The results you got with that combo makes me want to give it a shot myself. I was surprised at the unique, but high-quality look were able to get with that 35mm 1.7 lens, especially on the NEX sensor.
Perhaps companies like SLR Magic that take C-mount lenses and upscale them have a better thing going than "traditional" lens makers who are trying to scale back FF 35mm lenses. It seems the speed vs. size ratio on the 1" sensor c-mounts is better traditional lenses and some of those come pretty close to effectively covering an APS-C frame. Of course quality C mount glass isn't actually super cheap but a rectilinear 10 or 12mm lens would be fun...
I know this is a rather old thread, but I've been looking at c-mounts lately . . . just out of curiosity, y'know. I happen to have a c-mount to Nex adapter laying beside of me, so after much looking and reading, I sprang for a Cosmicar/Pentax 25mm f/1.8. This is all strictly for academic purposes and scientific curiosity, of course. Besides, I can't let Ad get too far ahead of me in the lens count.
