Wow, these look all incredibly good. A few are instant classics. What lens is this exactly, could you link to an amazon page?

S3ZAi,

These were taken with a SAL500F80.  It is a discontinued (2010) Sony lens that was produced from a Minolta version of the same specs.  The are numerous Minolta versions around on ebay . .  Sony versions are more scarce.

It is a f8.0 fixed aperture lens with AF on any Sony body (need a LA-EA2 adapter for any Nex body).  For anyone wanting the reach and light/small it is a great option.

Thanks for looking and the nice comments.

Jack
