Welcome, vibranze!

Beautiful pics... thanks for sharing.

Hexanons are very impressive. Is this the pancake lens you're using?

Thanks Dioptrick =)

Yes, this is the pancake lens. I have another Hexanon 50/1.7, will post a photo of it in separate thread.

I like the characteristic of Hexanon and I actually started to hunt them down, next to get is 135/f3.2. :D

Cheers.

Hi and welcome Vibranze

Very nice shots, you've got yourself quite a good lens and the results speaks for itself.

I notice that all the shots have a dark vignetting around the edges. Is the lens doing this, or did you deliberately add this (lens filter, hood, or digital editing)?

Hi Dioptrick,
No, I purposely put it as it helps to bring the subject. I know not all people is a fans of vignetting so pardon me if you don't like it =)
Cheers.

I like it :)

I notice things like this immediately because I used to add this effect via a lens filter. I was just curious whether yours happened by accident or was done in purpose. Nicely done!

Don't have the NEX yet, but have used the hexanons on Olympus 4/3, as well as the m4/3, and panasonic. They always do really well, if I do my part. I still have a 52mm, that I use on my E-p2.

For whatever reason the Hexanons and the NEX are a really good match for one another.

Finally got my hands on a pristine copy from KEH. Compact, light, and stunning image quality. Shot on my NEX-F3.
