I am starting this week with 16mm.

First is the Sony Carl Zeiss 16-35mm F2.8 SSM (a-mount lens) at the 16mm end.

16.1 There is also some green around here (onions field)

Sony ILCE-7RM4 + Sony Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* 16-35mm F2.8 ZA SSM (SAL1635Z) | 16.0 mm | f/8 | 1/800 sec | ISO 200

16.2 but it is mainly desert...

Sony ILCE-7RM4 + Sony Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* 16-35mm F2.8 ZA SSM (SAL1635Z) | 16.0 mm | f/8 | 1/800 sec | ISO 200

and here is one with Sony E PZ 16-50mm F3.5-5.6 OSS (crop lens). It is small and nice to carry around, but it is not a good lens...
The photo is of a large field of solar panels. I went off-road, thinking that I can get a good composition, but there were people there and I couldn't get to the spot I wanted.

16.3

Sony ILCE-7RM4 + Sony E PZ 16-50 mm F3.5-5.6 OSS (SELP1650) | 16.0 mm | f/8 | 1/800 sec | ISO 200

And now 19mm.

The lens is Tokina 19-35mm F3.5-4.5. I always had mixed feelings about it. It is a nice lens, but it is not very good. More like "good for the price"... It used to be my FF wide zoom until I got the Sony Zeiss 16-35mm ZA (SAL1635Z). Since then I don't think I ever used it (how nice to take part of this Day Prime challenge - it cleans the dust from old lenses...).
When shooting at the wide end of this lens, the EXIF shows 20mm instead of 19mm. However, the EXIF also shows wrong lens name, so I tend to believe the 19mm written on the lens rather than the reported 20mm. I manually changed the EXIF to 19mm (and correct lens name).

Here is an afternoon view out of my door (I guess you are going to see this spot many times in different perspectives...)

19.1

HK14.1 Stoa Square

α99 II + Sigma EX 14 mm 1:2.8 Aspherical @ 14 mm, f/2.8, 1/30 s, ISO 3200

and finally (so far) a glamour shot with NEX-6 + Hugo Meyer Kino Plasmat 1:1.5 f = 1,6cm (1940; C-mount):

Praktica B100 electronic + Prakticar MC Auto Zoom 1:4.0-4.5 f=18-28mm


This lens was manufactured by Samyang and released under many different names: Samyang, Phoenix, Vivitar, Sirius, Falcon, Cambron, Centon, Exakta Varioplan, and in this case, Prakticar.

My plan is to convert the Praktica B-mount to M42 in order to improve the MFD (0,5 mtr) with a M42 > E-mount helicoid adapter. To be continued ...

The Minolta MD W.Rokkor 17 mm 1:4 is a lovely thing. Distortion galore, bags of CA, rotating front element. The latter two are not a real issue, distortion sometimes looks a bit weird when you take pictures of a city (as in my Amsterdam set).

17.1: De Oude Kerk (The Old Church), Delft

Camera Model: ILCE-7
Lens: Minolta MD W.Rokkor 17 mm 1:4
Aperture: f/8
Exposure Time: 0.02 sec (1/50)
ISO: 100

17.2: The Oude Kerk (Old Church), Delft

Camera Model: ILCE-7
Lens: Minolta MD W.Rokkor 17 mm 1:4
Aperture: f/8
Exposure Time: 0.25 sec (1/4)
ISO: 100

The girl cuddled up to me to see what I was doing (camera low on tripod, me trying to see the screen that doesn't tilt in portrait orientation, shame on you Sony!) and insisted I include her in the picture. She and her grand-dad were impressed with the result.

17.3: The girl that wanted to be in the picture

Camera Model: ILCE-7
Lens: Minolta MD W.Rokkor 17 mm 1:4
Aperture: f/8
Exposure Time: 0.005 sec (1/200)
ISO: 100

17.4: Pumpkin Parking

Camera Model: ILCE-7
Lens: Minolta MD W.Rokkor 17 mm 1:4
Aperture: f/8
Exposure Time: 2
ISO: 100
