Sony DT 35/1.8+ Focal reducer = 25mm, f/1.3 lens for NEX!
5 months ago

Hi people

I couldn't get my mind off of the idea that Focal reducer can allow a very affordable way to get fast 25mm lens for APS-C NEX. I'm talking about Sony DT 35/1.8 SAM prime!

With focal reducer it acts like 25mm, f/1.3 lens (37mm, f/1.9 FullFrame equivalent)...

I got more gain to this idea when I learned that DT35/1.8 covers "almost" true FF frame.

...However, my first experience with FR&DT35/1.8 was a bit disappointing.

Fortunately, I did not discouraged!

Because another copy of that cheap Roxsen FRworks much better with DT 35/1.8

Somehow it can perform edges/corners better. Well, this combination is still far from perfect, but now it's usable - at least!

Some my very first samples with NEX-6+Roxsen focal reducer+DT35/1.8 SAM lens. All wide open, f/1.8.

Comments very welcome...

cheers,

Ari
