Thanks Dave. The NEX is ideal for street (or tram) shots. She never knew I had her focused!

Beautiful shot Leo - great work and the 5N with the Nokton doing their bit too

If I may ask, is the 50 1.5 particularly small and how do you rate the bokeh in more challenging scenarios than this? (samples of bokeh from the 40 1.4 didn't look good to me, so I'm wondering about the 40 f1.4 pen f instead)

(I attended a party before Christmas and was snapping away all evening and showing the shots at the end, had the comments that they'd not realised I was taking shots either. Take advantage of the waist level shooting whilst we can - people will get wise soon )

@ darosa -- lovely shot of an attractive young lady.

@ Luis -- good wedding coverage, with humour showing through.

Thanks Tim, Luis and brettania

@ Luis: I agree with brettania, your wedding photos made me smile!

@ Tim: the 50/1.5 is not very small; it's about the length of the Minolta 50/1.4, but the diameter is smaller. The bokeh is very good @ F1.5 (my favourite aperture with this lens). The 40/1.4 is not the best Voigtlander imo; I'm not surprised you were not impressed. The 50/1.5 is very good but is discontinued. I got mine from CameraQuest (Stephen Gandy). He still has some in stock.

Here are a few more, all @ F1.5:

Fingers working

NEX-5N + Voigtlander Nokton ASPH 50/1.5 @ F1.5, 1/60, +0.7 EV, 800iso

Pensive

NEX-5N + Voigtlander Nokton ASPH 50/1.5 @ F1.5, 1/80, +0.7 EV, 1600iso


A penny for her ...

NEX-5N + Voigtlander Nokton ASPH 50/1.5 @ F1.5, 1/100, +1.3 EV, 1600iso

Don't you like that bokeh?

Sorry my fault - we're now infesting this thread with equipment talk

And maybe posting a few too many NEX images outside of the NEX threads too

(But 'yes' that bokeh looks fine; it's the 40 that didn't look as good)

And another great set of candids BTW
