From a walk today on Indiana University's campus. All with my A7III and Leitz Elmar 90mm f4.0, which was made in 1952. Most taken between f5.6 and f11. There are no click stops so you never quite know... There is better contrast than I was expecting, but the lens will flare if you point it in the direction of a 10watt bulb.

CHEAP - Really Cheap! 75mm f/1.7 Portrait Lens
The Fujian CCTV 75mm f/1.7 lens can easily be adapted to a Sony e-mount camera. This lens ran me about $40 new on eBay with another ten bucks of so for the adapter. It is equivalent to 112.5mm when mounted on my A6500 and of course it is 75mm on a full frame camera/

One Caveat However... It is only good for portraits since it doesn't have a diaphragm and you will be shooting it wide open all the time. Of course it is manual focus but with the Sony Focus Assist and Focus Peaking that is no strain when shooting portraits.
It does a very nice job, especially considering the price...

I recently purchased this lens. It is in near mint condition...no dings, dents, scratches. The glass is perfect. I am looking forward to using it. Update. Pic of our cat.

Edit suggestions appreciated. Thanks.

Lovely shot! Congrats on your acquisition.
I have had this lens on my A7II for the past month! It hadn't gotten much camera time, so I decided to put it on and it has stayed on. It's a fun little pancake with nice color and pretty sharp. I paired mine with a small metal lens hood which works well.

We planted some milkweed plants a couple of years ago to help out the Monarch butterflies and, lo and behold, we finally have a caterpillar on them. A7III + Pentax DFA 100mm f2.8 - around f5.6, as I recall.

For some reason I really love how the Voigtlander 15mm 4.5 SL-II renders at night! It's a combination of excellent center sharpness, colors and light point rendering that modern wide angle lenses just don't have!

A couple from my bike ride this morning down along the beach. This new plant has gone up rather quickly over the last two years.

A7ii w/Canon LTM 35 2.8 (I know it's not a close up type lens but I thought I'd try it anyways.)

Nice street shots. I like the color tone!
Did you crop any of them?
