Continuing yesterday’s post, “Sony, meet Nikon”, where I explained how to use a Fotodiox NIK-NEX lens mount adapter with a Nikon 35mm f/1.8 prime lens and a Sony NEX 6 camera, here are some images I made using that set up. These are all straight our of camera except for some cropping.
A good example of the narrow depth of field attainable with this lens:
Good color and contrast:
Good, sharp details in the leaf, (I was tempted but refrained from playing with contrast and saturation after the fact):
Good separation of subject and background:
The bottom line is, I think I made a good call in keeping the Nikon lens and purchasing the adapter. I’m pleased with the results and happy to have a fast lens in my bag. I also appreciate the need to slow down to focus and expose the scene properly.
I’ll continue to shoot with this set up and you’ll be seeing more examples over time.
Thanks for stopping by and, as always, feedback is welcome.
