    Haha, I have to agree... although the composition has style and artistic flair, you've left too much room on that floor for other lenses to gravitate toward! :)

    Life is a Box of Chocolates

    Or rather: Nex life is a box full of legacies! :p


    Anyway, here they all are in my NEXbox :)

    NEXbox02.
    (Excuse the poor pic IQ taken with a cheap compact)


    There's two lenses in the pic that aren't on my signature - the Tokina AT-X SD 35-200mm f3.5-4.5 zoom and the Industar69 28mm f2.8 - because they're not keepers. Although the Industar69 is highly rated by many, I'm not impressed with my copy and I find it almost impossible to use. As far as my vintage lenses are concerned, the Industar69 28mm is pretty poor in comparison to my Steinheil Munchen Cassarit 45mm f2.8, or my Staeble Braun Ultralit 50mm f2.8. The Industar69 is also nowhere near the IQ and the focusing precision of the Industar61 which I'm very fond of, which is a pity because a 28mm FL would've been handy. The Tokina 35-200mm zoom on the other hand, is quite soft and gets anemic flare because it's got some fungus, and also the apertures get stuck. I might have a go at opening it to see if I can salvage it, otherwise bye-bye Tokina (didn't pay much for it, so I got what I paid for lol :rolleyes: )

    Not in the pic is my Canon FD28mm (sold it) and my beloved Takumar 55mm f/1.8 which is on loan to a good friend who just sold his DSLR and bought a 5N. Needless to say, he's totally blown away by it as well as the focus peaking feature on the NEX.

    It's true though, and I bet I'd be evil as well if I could tempt you with something on this list: ;)

    Vivitar 24/2.8 in C/Y mount
    Contax 28-85/3.3-4 in C/Y mount
    Yashica 42-75/3.5 in C/Y mount
    Yashica 75-200/4.5 in C/Y mount
    Contax 85/1.4 in C/Y mount
    Yashica ML 135/2.8 in C/Y mount
    Pentax 135/2.5 (Bayonet) in Pk mount

    Actually, any and all of them will be on the sales block soon. I have need of some more rangefinder lenses. Want more rangefinder lenses. Need. Want. Same difference. :)
