Nex-5 w/ CV Nokton 40mm f1.4 pics
Sep 12, 2010

Got my Nokton 40mm f1.4 lens today.

Some observations...

Wish minimum focus was less than 70cm!

Whoa! 1.5x focal factor = 60mm! Gotta back up!

Kipon M to E mount adapter... yes it focuses past infinity but otherwise a good fit and reasonably good quality adapter.

Pretty small lens; not used to the focus tab.

Manual focus is not easy even with magnify!

As I mentioned the Nex-5 is my first ever interchangeable lens camera and I'm loving it. Thanks to everyone here who has provided such great info helping me make lots of good choices in lenses!

Here are some pics with the Nokton... no processing or editing. Straight from camera. Few shots at f1.4 (last 2), you can probably tell from the bokeh otherwise f2.0 f2.8 and up to f5.6 and f8.
