    Hello all, there is already another thread for this lens, but that one has "(full frame)" in the thread title, so I thought it'd be best not to clutter that thread with non-a7 photos.

    These were shot on my nex-5r. C&C welcome as well as questions about the lens!

    These two were shot at either wide open or at a half click past at f2:

    The rest here were all shot at f2.8

    Shot a few more this weekend. This, time all shots wide open at 1.7 as the sun had already set. Quite satisfied with the sharpness.

    Very good wide open too. One of my favorite nifty-fifties!
