    With an eye towards doing something fun for the current members and attracting some new ones as well, it's my pleasure to announce a TalkEmount Sony FE 28mm f/2 lens giveaway!

    The Sony FE 28mm f/2 is a great lens for both full frame and APS-C E-mount photographers. My review of this lens is posted here.


    To enter, all you have to do is post a photo in this discussion thread taken by you during the month of August 2015 with a Sony E-Mount camera and like our newly-created page on Facebook.

    Link to our Facebook page:

    You can post any time between now and September 8, 2015, but the photo has to have been taken during August 2015.

    Additional conditions:

    1) You must be 18 years of age or older and reside in a place where this sort of sweepstakes is not prohibited by law to participate.

    2) You may only post once in this thread.

    You can go back and edit that post as many times as you like, but making a second post to comment, etc, will disqualify you from the sweepstakes. The reason for this is that winners will be randomly selected based on post number in the thread, and extra posts would give you extra chances to win.

    On September 9th, I will randomly select a winner. The winner will have 48 hours to respond to notification via both forum private message and the email on file. If there is no response, I will randomly select another winner.

    To post a photo in this thread:
    • Scroll to the bottom of the page where it says "Write your reply..."
    • Type your message in that box
    • Click the "Upload a Photo" button
    • Select the image on your computer/device and click "Open"
    • Click the "Click Here to Insert Image Into Post" button
    • Click the "Post Reply" button
    Alternatively you can post an image using BBcode as explained in this guide.

    Good luck, and don't forget to like our Facebook page!

    Oooh, that 28mm on my NEX-6 would be a great minimalist outfit!

    Here's one made with the A7 and the FE 16-35mm set at 28mm and f/8. See, I know how to use a 28mm! ;)

    Great idea Amin!!!

    Here's my entry:
    Long exposure from me again, but this time a night one :)  This is the hotel view by night. Unfortunately not many cars passed by at the time but an airplane made me the favor to pass by :D 
    Taken with a Nex-6 and the 18-105 G on August 5th 2015

    Wow. Thanks Amin!

    Some great shots shared. Edit: With images like the one directly below mine, it's incredibly hard not to add an additional comment, @Amin Sabet@Amin Sabet!

    Here a little something with the FD85L:

    I haven't taken many digital shots lately because I have a new toy.

    But I guess this shot counts:

    Was actually taken with a MD Rokkor 35mm F2.8.

    Pick me! I love wide angles and I've had my eye on that 28mm for a while! Already liked on Facebook. Question, if we don't use a Facebook sign in for this website how do you know that we've liked the page on Facebook?

    Sorry, mate. I have to keep it simple, and we need a Facebook presence.

    Once I randomly select a winner (using a random number generator to pick a post # from this thread), I will ask the winner for their FB name so I can verify that they liked our FB page while the contest was still open.

    Hi, great to get to know all of you. It's sad that Sony didn't get much exposure due to their terrible marketing so I'm excited to know about this site.
    Photos are taken with Sony A7S - FE 90mm Macro

    Whew... I'm glad it's a random sweepstake and not a photo contest! ;) 

    My favorite frame of the month so far is a product shot for the ETSY store:
