Using FE 1.8/50 with A7R2

50mm has always been my favorite focal length, beginning in my film days. It does many things well.

I had the opportunity to use Sony's FE 1.8/50 for a few days.

When I first handled it, I thought, Uh oh: this lens will never win the award for the largest/heaviest 50mmm lens. (NOTE: this is not a criticism, just an observation.)

Mounted on my A7R2 I carried it with me around town. I was pleasantly surprised at how well the lens performs.

Below are a few photographs: I took the opportunity to add to on-going series of projects.

In a following post I will show some out-in-nature photographs.

1. An attractive design; architecture series

2. Church tower, series

3. Stained glass windows, series

4. Renovated Fox Theater, a Spanish Colonial Revival style building

5. A colorful Spanish Colonial Revival style home

6. Wall art, series

7. Bookstore at night (not too many of these around anymore!)

8. Shortwave radio, product series

9. Kuchel, neighbor's Husky

10. Quick snap of a friend

Nature photographs to follow.
