I was rooting through the closet a bit ago and found my Pentacon 6 300mm/4.0 lens that I haven't seen in years. I decided to see how well it worked with the 5N and set things up in the hallway looking toward the tree. Shot distance is about 18 feet, lens @ f/4 ISO 100.

My wife made the angel, don't ask me how. It's magic or something. :cool:

First shot is full frame, the second is a slight crop.

NEX-5N    ----       f/1.0    1.6s    ISO 100


NEX-5N    ----       f/1.0    1.3s    ISO 100

I agree, the detail on that angel is fantastic, almost elvish :)

On the glass, looking at the crop, that's a very sharp tele, did you mount the set up on a tripod or did you hand held the shot?

btw: I really like the oof too, its quite smooth and creamy at f4

Thanks Phoenix, this lens works pretty well for a medium format lens. It's a tripod only affair though, thing weighs like 5 pounds, takes a 112mm filter. Which has a lot to do with it sitting in the closet all this time. Now that it's out, I'll have to make better use of it. Or turn it into a mortar tube if the zombies come over the rise. ;)

Very nice. I also have a couple of Pentacon lenses but in Mamiya 645 mount. they are very sharp, but not quite so big as yours.

I guess it stands to reason that a medium format lens would work well on a APS-C sensor. If 35mm film lenses only use the center of the lens, then a medium format lens is reallllllllllly only using the center of the lens. Yeah, it's a beast. Looks funny with the 5N hanging off the back of it too. :)
