Zeiss 35mm F2.0 vs. Fujinon 35mm F1.4

As a follow-up to the Zeiss 18mm F4.0 vs. Fujinon 18mm F2.0 lens review, I figured I’d do the same test for the Zeiss 35mm F2.0 vs. the Fujinon 35mm F1.4 lens. I’m sure there are many of you out there are curious to see how these lenses will stack up against each other on the Fuji X-Pro1 and an APS-C 1.5x crop body. The Buzz around the internet as well as here on Photohead Online, has been the Fujinon 35mm F1.4 is a very good lens with amazing performance. In a previous article on portraits, I used the Fuji X-Pro1 […]

Sony NEX-7 50mm F1.8 OSS video test

I just wanted to post a quick video test that I did with the Sony NEX-7 with Sony 50mm F1.8 OSS lens. I wanted to see the performance of the Optical Steady Shot on the Sony 50mm F1.8. I was at Seaworld, San Diego catching the Clyde and Seamore Show and the Intro was very entertaining so, I recorded it all hand-held and did some panning back and forth to follow the action. I was impressed by how the Optical Steady Shot worked and besides getting bumped here and there by my son, the video was pretty smooth. The video […]

Sony 18-55mm F3.5 OSS at 18mm vs. Zeiss Distagon 18mm F4.0 ZM This review is the first in a series of reviews that I will be doing that compares the standard Sony 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 OSS Kit lens to older legacy M-Mount lenses using a LM-NEX adapter.  For this review we will look at the Sony 18-55mm F3.5 OSS at 18mm and see how it performs against the  Zeiss Distagon 18mm F4.0 ZM lens.

Sony NEX-7 w/ Voigtlander 85mm 3.5 SC Nikon RF Mount

One of our readers Matt Wilkens has made some very beautiful images with his Sony NEX-7 using a Voigtlander 85mm F3.5 SC with a Nikon RF (Range Finder) mount. He says: My favorite lenses are 24mm 1.8 Zeiss, the 55-210mm Sony E and my Voigtlander APO 85mm Nikon RF mount with adapter ( a bargain around 250 new) I like the image quality of the 85mm Voigtlander almost as much as the Zeiss 24mm, but I do like to have the full function of AF. I’ve asked his permission to show them, because I feel the community would love to see what […]
