I used APS-C in a previous (macro) flower shooting as a kind of teleconverter, but forgot to put the setting back...

Do you find the 2.8 much different from the 3.5 version?
Saw a 2.0 version on ebay today, but that some more serious money

Yeah the price was one reason why I never bothered to look very hard, I figured it'd be super expensive.

I never saw a huge difference between the two except that the 2.8 is just a lot more practical: with those old Minolta lenses the jump from wide open to the next stop down, as it were, is not a half stop, but a full stop, and in the case of the 28/3.5 a full stop and a half.

The 28/2.8 goes from 2.8 to 4, skipping the half stop along the way (and then half stop increments from their on out, like all those lenses) but the 28/3.5 goes directly from 3.5 to f5.6 and it's like wow really? Already?? On film that was very often problematic because 5.6 is just not enough light often times.

All the lenses that, wide open, are "in between stops" do that:

50 and 58/1.2 go from 1.2 to f2
28/3.5 goes from 3.5 to 5.6
50/1.7 goes from 1.7 to 2.8

Otherwise the 3.5 is a fine lens, perfectly sharp but as far as being small and light, the 28/2.8 is also remarkably small and light so when I switched to it, it didn't feel like all the sudden I had this hugely heavy lens.

Thanks for explaining Brian. Just noticed that my 3.5/135 also steps from 3.5 to 5.6

Snapped few photos on a short evening walk...

Keeping distance on Alakivi landfill hill


Instructions for the football field (at least mostly, few players might been slightly closer than 2 meters apart)


Apologies that these were shot with RX10 IV rather than ILCs, but I wanted to pick a light camera kit.

It's a nice shot Neil, and good light, but I think you need to force some social distancing between your sensor and some dust bunnies
Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here

Well spotted, Pieter! It's surprising how these can escape the 'normal' review of the image when processing..... I don't think they're sensor spots but likely to be on the CPL I had fitted at the time - they'd be on all the images if they were sensor spots I suspect. I will do some 'tidying' in due course and replace said image.....

Thanks for 'spotting the obvious' (groan....)

Take care all and best regards, Neil.

BWV 926

If there's one thing we have time for it's piano! Louise had a problem with her wrist earlier this year that had her sidelined for 3 whole months - an eternity - but with confinement she's back at it with a vengeance, complete with Skype lessons with her teacher. That's a poor substitute but better than nothing. Also a pleasure to handle the a99 with Minolta 28/2 here, I was forgetting how much that camera is a joy to hold in the hand after using only the a7 for the past 3+ months (and several years with the x700).

I feel the A7 is too small for my hands. My A7Rii with RRS L-bracket feels just right. I like the feel of the A99 as well but it is SOOOOOOOO BIG and heavy!

Lovely image BTW!
