    Some shots I took last night of my nephew and a friend of mine's son at the game. I used my NEX-7+ LA-EA1 adapter + Minolta Maxxum 200mm 2.8 APO stabilized with a monopod. I sat in the far stands and attempted to manually focus. I found myself shooting at f/3.2, shutter of 1/250 and ISO of 800. At first I was focusing using the focus peaking and the back screen, then I switched to using the EVF and found my focusing to be much more accurate with the EVF.

    The Minolta lens is a beauty. Pro quality glass and it shows. When I bring a file into a Lightroom I have very little adjustments to make, always sharp and colors are great ( same with the Sony Zeiss 24mm 1.8).





    I posted a few other pics here...
