Re: Lens Turbo - first impressions

Temptation was just too great for me also... I ordered one off ebay.  Curse you OP

It won't arrive for a few weeks yet.  But while this thread is still alive, would it interest anyone if when it arrives I ran a few comparisons shots between the lens mounted on a Nikon D700 vs. NEX 6 (w/ focal reducer)?

I hear it won't give identical FLs (50mm becomes 50 x 1.5 x 0.72 = 54mm) but should be close enough to compare straight OOTC between the Full Frame Nikon vs. the cropped NEX-6.

The only F-mount lenses I still have are the Nikon 50/1.4D, Nikon 85/1.8D and a Sigma 24-70/2.8.  Luckily all of them are old enough to have aperture rings
