First Shots, Plastic Fantastic.

Scored a Feebay Sony 35mm, very nice condition.

First thoughts,

- Yep 35mm IS narrow. (I only have 6 other lenses that cover that range, so DUH, Ron !)

- CA by the bucket in some shots, just as bad as some of the more desirable vintage Minoltas.
More on this later.

- Very, very sharp for the bucks (It's a prime, who knew ?)

- Extremely good colour, ETTL !

- Soft smooth Bokeh (People are paying $800 bucks for what ?)

- F1.8 is a lot of light, if you want to use it, make sure your cam can make 1/8000 at least.

- It gets in CLOSE, here's some happy snaps,

as ever, please view the originals.

100% Crop

Rosebud. Nice background, Good Detail, NARROW DOF

Typical DOF

These are about 15mm across

Needed a lot more DOF, but set-up time was, er, limited.
