    Just got the sony a mount version and the laea1 since they were out of stock on the regular sony a to nex adapter on amazon.

    Excited to try this lens and adapter out...I know there is no point for the Laea1 with this, buy maybe a different SAL lens next.

    Should be here tomorrow.

    Anyone with any experience with the lens?

    I was going to get the cannon 85 1.8 on eBay but tried this instead

    Wow those are great! Thats the image quality I was hoping for. We're those shot wide open? That bike shot is superb. What body are you using it on?

    Thanks! I believe all but the door were shot wide open; However, since there is no EXIF data with this lens, I can't say for certain. As for the body, it was either my NEX-6 or A57 SLT -- since it's the same sensor, it should provide similar results.

    With Nex 7 and LA-EA1, wide open:

    20130819-04.

    The only thing you have to watch out for with this lens (or any over 60mm) is that when there's no communication with the body, unless you're in manual or shutter priority, the camera will choose 1/60th of a second to get max ISO, which is too prone to shake. I usually shoot in aperture priority, but with this lens I have to go manual, or at the very least manually set ISO to get the shutter speed to a minimum of 1/100.

    Deadbear77, Nice shots! Wide open the DOF is very shallow, with little light at times we went wrong focus, but it is a nice exercise to photograph. And the result is impressive with the sharpness wide open. Great value for money. Virtually no CA, only in certain situations of high contrast and lots of light.
