They are beautiful, Wolfhandsen.
I like the compositions of cat and leaf, and the Image Quality on all your pictures.

The Nex-6 seems to be very good.
Do you like using it ?

Thanks a lot Very Happy
Yes, i like the cam a lot, much better than my old Nex-5 (without N).
But this year i will buy a Sony A7, maybe i give the A7s a try because
of my main photographic interest: shooting live concerts in often very low light.

That's very good IQ !

Henry, if my garden was so near by a canal with such great ships, I believe I would stay there all day long and maybe all night long too to Watch them pass. Very Happy

Nothing fancy, just a quick test of my newly acquired Leitz Focotar 40/2.8

Leitz Focotar 40/2.8 test by scepticswe, on Flickr

Compared to my EL-Nikkor 50/2.8N, I'd say the Leitz is at least as sharp and also has better contrast. Highly recommended lens.

+1

This one's are taken with Leitz Focotar 2.8/40mm on the VNEX + his macro reverse tube ...
Ants between greefly's ... 100% Crop's of a great symbiosis.

No one picked up on this?!
An a7T preproduction Sony digital TL mirrorless medium format camera.
PLEASE tell us more, though, I'm guessing you cannot.
This sounds very intriguing!

Oh, is this just your wishful thinking of a medium format Sony alpha ?

Buggz, I think it is a premonition about a medium format Alpha based on A7 + double lens Meyer Optik Trioplan 3.5/75 Reflekta II TLR. Very Happy
It's a joke.

Look here what Lo posted on flickr :

This is a Leica Focotar 2.8/40mm on my VNEX KB short...



And this are the Images, taken with this very, very compact lens on Sony A7 FF cam... (showing some crops out of it)...

Did you shoot that with the VNEX-system?

No. With vintage focusing macro heliicoid. (Sorry, now I read, this is thread for VNEX using showroom).

Picked up a short M42 helicoid adapter (too short for regular M42 lenses), to allow infinity focus with my Leitz Focotar 40/2.8. Apart from some pretty pronounced vignetting wide open, it's a very fine piece of glass:
