    Few shots of nice pieces of nature - Calopteryx virgo, male (with blue wings) and female (brownish wings).

    Best camera is that, which you actually have in your hands... Walking around river, sunbathing on stone with my girlfriend... and only NEX with Nokton classic 40/1,4 and helicoid adapter... My Nikon with superb macro lens was at home at that moment, so I went to water caming up to my waist and tried it with NEX :)

    Colin, thank you for your advice to buy this Nokton! He is still mounted on my nex since I received him! I have never soppose to use him for close-up, but with helicoid adapter he is quite usable :) Nice lens overall, for people shooting especially. Very good angle of view and speed!

    Thans for all for comments!

    Awesome shots!

    Never knew such adapters existed. I was considering this lens, but went with a SEL35 instead, because of the MFD. I have to make a decision soon as I'm getting closer to the end of the 30 days return policy window...

    The second shot is absolutely stunning with the suggestion of delicate movement. Composition is spot on and I love the tones. Could easily be the cover of a book about fairies. Well done sir.
