    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.

    Sweet shots, the 40 is probably the next one I'll be getting :)

    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.

    Hi Halka, you should get one and maybe other range from Hexanon as well.

    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.

    Here are a couple with the 40/1.8 and the NEX C3

    and one with a Konica 24/2.8

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/dixeyk/7512426536/" title="Razor Break by dixeyk, on Flickr"> 7512426536_ab71076c48_b. "1024" height="680" alt="Razor Break"></a>

    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.
