I had to learn a bit about "stopping down", but here are six photos:
My 5N won't allow me. I can switch to Intelligent Auto Mode, but from there it won't go to Special Effects.Dioptrick, Colour isolation works on all lenses, however I do find that the wider the angle of the lens the less coverage there is in the colour isolation.
Cool, I usually just take a photo of anything with a bright light source in the background to see if it will flare up, but from the look of things (image of the lady statue laying down) the adjacent building with it's windows has no flare at all (the glare is minimal though). You got youself a pretty little gem mate, congrats!I don't know how to check for flaring, but I sure like this little lens. Even came with a B&w UV filter. I do find it a little tricky to push the stop-down tabs when shooting above 1.4.
