I love the 5N + CV Nokton 40mm
Jan 23, 2012

Here are a couple of daylight images, taken hand held. Pics are cropped in order to improve compoisition. All sots are in RAW format and have undergone some basic PP in PS.

Coming from a P&S camera (Canon Powershot S 2) and having largely used phonecameras in the past 1-2 years, I can't enough express how much I am impressed with the IQ of the Sony Nex system. What I particularly love is the extreme versatility provided by the combination with legacy lenses. The Nokton 40 mm 1.4 lens is just 2 inches long, so that I can easily put the Nex5N with attached lens in my coat pocket and carry it around just as a P&S cam.

Nice shots, thanks for sharing. I also use the cv 35 2.5, 15 f4, 25 f4, and cv .95 with cropping afterwards. The 5n makes focusing manual lenses terrific, much better than my m43 system, peaking really awesome. I am also thinking of adding the helicoid to Improve focus distance.

nice to hear about other users of this little gem. thanks for sharing.

zero artistic value, but it's ISO 3200, baby !

raw conversion with a little contrast and no noise reduction. focus on green/yellow flower behind the handmill.

Please forgive my grammar but if you find it inconceivable address me in romanian.
