Discussion in 'Sony Alpha E-Mount Lenses' started by lapdog99, Feb 15, 2012.
I had to learn a bit about "stopping down", but here are six photos:
I can sense the satisfaction you felt when you were twirling that smooooooth lens barrel! Sharp! Great captured expression on the portrait, that wasn't easy to focus quickly!
I thought we couldn't do colour isolation with adapted lenses??!??
Nice capture mate, I like the oof rendition , looks sharp, and seems to have a neutral contrast that I like in a lens. Very good acquisition How is it with flaring?
@ 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.
My 5N won't allow me. I can switch to Intelligent Auto Mode, but from there it won't go to Special Effects.
I've tried it on both my Tamron 24mm and Takumar 55mm, but no go...
Hmmm, it works fine on the 7, you do have the settings "release without lens" on?
I have the shoot mode on manual, release without lens on and no worries with any of the picture effects.
Just an update, I saw in DPreview regarding some changes they made on the 5n regarding the partial colour effects. Hopefully you can get some answers here
I'll move to a separate thread as this is off topic.
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.
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!
looking good..... I love legacy glass....
