Hi, again me about taking panoramas with nex camera and manual lens. I made this with canon FD 50mm 1:1.8 and I did it in a way that I connected with Photoshop several in-camera made panoramas. It appears that the best results with a manual lens are achieved when the aperture is closed at f8-f11. My theory is that there should be sufficient sharpness so that camera could connect pictures and approximately the required amount of light to be able to take pictures at 1/500 which is the fixed speed of panorama mode (why?). Off topic: I've had complaints from two middle-aged female friends that this lens is not good because the wrinkles on their faces are too visible.
