    More experimenting with what's available to shoot! Used Autochrome filter from Camera Bag.


    Nice bokeh at 2.8.

    Nice shot, Christilou. How are you liking the Sigma 30mm so far?

    I just picked one up during the Black Friday sale, but have not had much chance to play with it on my NEX-7.

    Thinking of selling mine. Nice lens but unsexy and slowish AF, it's not seing much (if any) use... That MF love really intruding.

    It's a nice lens. I don't use mine (much like Claire I prefer MF) but I have no complaints about it. I find the Sigma very sharp.

    I just have to keep mine around for landscapes - hard to imagine a better solution for that application.

    I've never been very fond of its BOKEH and close-up capabilities, but nice results can be coaxed out of it, as OP demonstrates. :)
