Sony Nex-7 with the Sony 20mm pancake 2.8

May 07, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Yesterday was a beautiful spring day but I was stuck inside at work. So when I got out I grabbed the Nex-7 with the 20mm pancake and headed out the door. I decided to test this lens out at wide open, 2.8. So I put the camera on aperture priority and shot away with the ISO set to Auto. Ya I know I'm a bum for sticking the camera on auto but hey the Nex-7 and the 20 are made for that. Manual focus is alright but autofocus is great for P&S shots. I found this tree blooming nearby and shot it wide open with the late afternoon sun which I thought would be a perfect test for the lens. I was surprised to see very little vignetting at the corners and the distortion was not very noticeable. I converted it to B&W because the color was not extensive.

At 2.8 the buds just jump out at you. A really cool 3-D affect! Of course this is true when shooting wide open on just about any lens depending on how close you are and the focal length. I find experimenting with f-stops and shutter speeds adds to the fun of getting out there and shooting some frames. Glad to be out of the office.
