I have seen several posts on other websites and performs in the portraits, the only 50mm with Stabilisation, fast and great performance.I have not had a chance to use it, I would like to go B&H or Sony to use it and have my own conclusions , but I'm busy in my job so i didn't try it yet : (
Here's a few images from the 50mm f1.8 lens and the NEX 7. It's a lovely lens, a bit bigger than I'd like, but it renders very nicely. These were all shot in downtown Vancouver. As always, click on an image for a larger view.
If you're asking me, Mike, all of the above shots were at f1.8. The couple of images I posted on the Sigma 30mm thread are also wide open (f2.8). I shoot RAW and PP with Topaz Detail on a relatively mild setting. I don't shoot with the kit lens that often, but it is pretty sharp also. The 50 and 30 are new to me as are my NEX 7 bodies (I had a pair of NEX 5 before). I'm finding the 24MP of the 7 requires some adjustment in thinking about sharpness when viewed at 100% (especially RAW which, of course, are not sharpened), but overall I'm very pleased with both lenses.
