Nice images.

The rose looks a bit on the soft side.

it was shot wide open and it was very sunny day, so that might be the cause of that

Very nice shots. I always find "any" shade of red the most difficult to get a nice clear/sharp focus. Not quite sure why that is.

The rose looks tack sharp to me but the contrast is very low in the sharp parts (all highly saturated colours).

Anyway, nice samples.

In fact i like your work. But i have to say this. All you prove is: THIS lens is working and capable to produce usable results. But using a lot of post production, closed apertures and cropped image everything just looks very much the same. 28mm, 35mm, 50mm, 100mm, 135mm, 200mm, it's all the same. F1.2, F2.0, F2.8, F4. F5.6 it really doesn't count. Uncoated, Single coated, MC all just the same. Suggestion: try to include one shot wide-open. And maybe one shot at infinity. Keep one shot for fixed WB to compare color reproduction.

I just keep reaching for this lens, on the NEX it's superb. It's a 'guaranteed shot' lens - if I get it right. Wink

Some images are very beautiful.

Subtle ones. Not excesive contrast, please. Something into the real world, delicate world.

No more that awful and vulgar contrast.

Please, something of art.
