    This lens has quickly become a fav of mine - 49mm filter thread, 5 elements in 5 groups, 230g!

    A few pictures with the lens adapted on A6000

    I remember this one was wide open:

    A secret I use to get it focus closer than normal, while still achieving infinity: with a OM-EOS thin adapter, then an EOS-NEX dumb helicoid adapter. The Larkspurs is an example. More in the flickr album.

    That is quite a coincident. I was looking about that lens a few moments ago and EF to Nex helicoid adapter is on my purchase list as is EF Lens Turbo II (I have already ordered about 10 adapters from various mounts to EF).

    Love the size and feel of this lens. Very light and compact. It does flare for me so I have to be careful using it on a sunny day.

    Just sold one today over on FM (along with OM 24/2.8). Very nice lens, mine was sharp on center wide open, with a nice bump in contrast and overall performance by f4. Amazingly tiny and one of the smoothest helicoids I've used. A real ergonomic pleasure. I'll miss it!

    Here's are two shots on the A7s

    It's surprisingly sharp wide open (at least in the center), which is nice. Contrast needs work at 2.8, but not bad. I would really like the f/2 variant and as luck would have it, one popped up for sale JUST after I bought mine. Still, happy with what I'm seeing with this one.
