Nex-5N + LEA2 Adapter with Sony Alpha 85 f2.8 Lens

Nex-5N + LEA2 Adapter with Sony Alpha 85 f2.8 Lens

This combination works very well. I've tried the Alpha 85 f2.8 and the 35 f1.8 Alpha lenses so far (because they are cheap, small and image quality is good). Both are pretty snappy to focus and the image quality is quite good. I thought the adapter was much larger than it really is and adds nearly nothing in weight when carrying it when out on a shooting session. It also adds phase detect focusing which is very nice to have. This is the first image I've posted using this equipment and I'm hoping to test and post some more images using these two lenses.

Nex-7 and the 18-55 kit lens again. This was one of the best sunsets seen on the whole trip. This is also the last image from this series from Norway. I hope that you've found them to your liking and of course, any feedback would be welcome.

This is another one of these scenes that take your breath away. Taken with the Nex-7 and 18-55 kit lens. The Norwegian coast is simply stunning, and I can only recommend it to all. Perhaps not in winter but you do have more room as it's too cold for a lot of people. If you are planning a trip with the Hurtigruten Line then March, April or May would be the best months. In summer the ships are simply too full.

On the second week I decided to swap lenses, meaning I used the Nex-5N with the prime lenses and test the 18-55 kit lens on the Nex-7. Worked out great actually. I might get the 55-210 for the Nex-7 as well seeing it copes well with these lenses. As a bonus you don't get any purple fringing with the RF lenses on the Nex-5N. Less work in post-processing images.
About the image: These mountains, or mounain range is called the Seven Sisters. The tale goes that the Trolls of Norway had to be inside before sunrise, unfortunately during one trip they didn't make it back in time to their cave and so were cought by the first rays of the sun. And, as everyone knows trolls are turned to stone when touched by the suns rays, and so were these seven sisters.

We were lucky enough to see the Aurora Borealis on a number of occasions. Normally we would get woken up at some ungodly hours ( 2 a.m.) to go out on deck and have a look. Really not easy to take these images in pitch black and travelling at a mean speed of 15 knots. This was taken with the Nex-5 and the CV 15 f4.5. Set the aperture to f8 and the focus at just under 2m. Focus should then be ok for everything to be in focus. Problem was, a tripod doesn't help in these situations because of the ship movement. All these images of the Northern Lights were taken hand held.

This image is all about the one cloud being highlighted by the setting sun. I didn't want just the cloud in the sky and needed something at the bottom. Rather than having a lot of water in the foreground I decidd just to include a little of the mountains to offset any dead space.
I'm still imressed with these cameras and how well the 18-55 kit lens works on both the 5N and the 7. The resolution and detail from the Nex-7 is really impressive aswell.

This is a variation on the previous image. Takes a little later the sun is just about to dip out of view again. I like the starburst effect here that I don't really see all that often in my images. I think I stopped the CV 15 f4.5 lens down quite a bit here as there was no problem with slow shutter speeds. It was also taken in 16:9 format. Something different that 3:2 or 4:3 format. Just like my preference for the square format I do a lot of landscape work now in the 16:9 format. It does open your eyes and you do tend to slow down and look what's in the viewfinder.

I underexposed this shot to ensure I got the ship as a silhouette. Turned out quite nice I thought. Again the combination of the Nex-5N and the CV 15 f4.5 proved to be an awsome combination.

I like the different shades of blue in this image. I also find it a very sensual photograph. If you can't see what's at the bottom, it's a large wind farm. Printed out these are quite visible and the print looks very good. The Nex-5N really does bring out some nice detail, especially if a good lenses are used. I'm slowly finding it easier to manual focus rather than depend on the cameras AF.

I just love the way the sun highlights the clouds in this image. This is as high as the sun got during the daylight period. I have to admit, the Nex-5N is much better with RF lenses than the Nex-7. No colour cast at all. I'm also finding it difficult to tell the images apart. If I held up the same image from taken by the two camera I wouldn't be able to tell the difference. Perhaps when printing large prints the detail would give the Nex-7 away, but apart from that, I don't the difference is noticeable.
What actually drew me to the Nex-7 was the ergonomics not the resolution. For my usage 16MP is more than enough, and I believe it's enough for most users.
