It’s been very interesting to see what the potential of […]

Fun with Zeiss 18mm F4 ZM on Sony NEX-7

Fun with the Zeiss 18mm F4 on a Sony NEX-7 In my review of the Sony 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 vs. Zeiss 18mm F4, I mentioned that this camera and lens combination made me want to keep shooting and make interesting images with it. So I decided I show you how much fun I’ve been having. I don’t want to give the lens back at this point and although the cost is high, It’s a really fun lens to play around with. All the images were shot hand-held at night. Most used aperture was F4.0. Focusing I love how with this lens […]

Sony NEX-7: Contax G to NEX adapter

Sony NEX-7: Contax G lens to NEX E mount adapter Almost two decades ago I started my love for rangefinder cameras starting with the Yashica Electro 35. I’ve always coveted the Leica’s but couldn’t afford them so I went with the Contax G1 when it was time to upgrade and do more serious work. The G1 was a great little camera and worked well for what it was, but when the Contax G2 came out I traded in my G1 for the G2 and haven’t gone back since. The Contax G2 fixed the issues that I had with the G1 […]
