This was shot on a tripod at 200mm, which is 300mm in full frame equivalency. Even with the tripod it was impossible to shoot without using either anti blur on the NEX-7 (which I used) or the remote. According to Google Maps the thermometer on the wall is 200 feet away from my window.

324: Something Awesome.

Let's see:

1. That's not the whole collection. I took the shot with the Sony NEX-C3 and the Mitakon 2.8/28

2. Of the 9 manual focus lenses, together, 8 of them together cost less than $240 total. The Carl Zeiss 1.4/50 was $225 and is almost impossible to find online under $350 or so.

3. The full lens collection, including adapters, and the lens on the NEX-C3, was less than the cost of the Nikon D5100 with 18-55 VR kit lens.

4. All of the adapters together were about $60, ordered from a Chinese dealer on eBay.

5. The eBay killer isn't on that photo. That lens was $2.25, $13 or so shipped and is now in the happy hands of a Sony NEX-5N owner.

6. The $225 Carl Zeiss lens is not $200 more awesome than the $24 Mitakon 2.8/28. Yes, it's nice to have f/1.4, but except for the low light advantage, the $24 lens is really damn nice.
