A6000 and the lens.
The grip is a Case Logic grip attached to a Manfrotto 200PL style quick
release plate, a special plate made by HorusBennu for their grips. It
allows you to use the camera, with the grip attached, on a Manfrotto
RC2 Rapid Connect Adapter.
Sample pictures: You may click
on the sample image (except closest focus) for full resolution. The
full resolution image opens in a new window, so you can keep it open
for comparison. Focus is on the
dish in the center of the photo.
Closest focus is only 36cm from
edge of the lens, F 8. Focus on
the program wheel of the camera.
picture sharpness is o.k., my lens has scratches on the front and dirt
inside. So the haze at F 1.8 is most probably due to this (I got it for
next to nothing). Stopped
down it's fine. Have a look at the full resolution image
at F 8 and you know what I mean. The lens has good close focussing
capablities. At F 22 there is only a little bit
of diffraction, which is much better
than other lenses. Diffraction is a problem of the APS-C sensor size,
lens (see comparison page).
AR lenses are 40.5mm FFD. This is shorter than most of the others,
except M39. So the adapters are shorter as well. On top of this, AR
lenses are very compact. It's a small and lightweight lens and it is
good lens for the A6000 with one stop more than average.
