    Well skies are a mixed bag today so thought I would try the little 16mm pancake: DSC00432_HDR. DSC00441_HDR. DSC00449. DSC00445.

    Wow... looks like a long walk to get up there, what an awesome breathtaking place!

    A lot of people overlook the E16 pancake... it might not be the best lens out there, but for it's price it delivers a lot of bang for the buck, especially in situations like that. I can't think of any current AF lens in that focal that's under a thousand bucks.

    Are you using a Windows based computer for your pp, lapdog99? From my mac monitor, the images appear quite purplish... I'm aware there's a gamma difference between the two systems and I may not be seeing what you're seeing.

    Strictly Apple (iMacs/Mac Airs/iPads/iPhones). The HDR software has a tendency
    To do that, although I have noticed it more with the NEX 7. I paid $125 for the
    Virtually new 16 pancake.

    The images look awesome, specially the texture of the sky. Very well captured mate.

    Humm, the gray clouds do appear purplish, and it is noticeable on the jpegs out of the camera as well. I have to double check all the NEX controls because it is easy to leave some of the settings in creative, etc. my Nikonhotos didn't show the purplish cast.
