I am liking very much the images that are coming off the NEX 6 fitted with the Cosina Voigtländer 35mm ƒ2.5 lens. Here is one from the kitchen, the pot I use the most in my cooking (presently a new recipe for chile con carne):
This image used the Hawk’s helicoid Leica M to NEX mount adapter, which has the great benefit of allowing a much closer minimum focal distance (the CV 35/2.5’s minimum distance is about 0.7m; the Hawk’s gets you to about .3m, so significantly closer).
And a couple more from the daily walk, shot the day following the first images:
When I look at these landscapes on a large, calibrated monitor, I see all kinds of lens aberrations: soft towards the edges, barrel distortion, and chromatic aberrations (“CA”) too, but I don’t care; this might be a first for me. When I look at the image above, that’s how I saw it—I have had a very large number of cameras that are capable of technically better images, but this combination simply produces images I like the look of. Who’da thought?
And the last one today:
This is not full size, so will not enlarge that much, but this should be enough to get the idea. More to come.
