Here's another shot with my FA50mm f1.7 on the Fotodiox adapter. Taken at f1.7, 2sec, ISO 200. On a tripod obviously.

Charles.
Really cool tube shots! Love the lighting.

Neat! I love my KT 88 amp, but it never occurred to me to photograph it with my Q.

Hey guys, just back from a Q-only trip in Mexico, I felt a bit limited sometimes (especially in focal range) but the little guy did the job quite well
Nice set Nick.

Lovely vacation shots! It's tough to leave the DSLR at home despite having the Q so I admire your courage, I haven't been able to do it yet. Actually I find you Q shots to beat most of the usual film vacation shots I've seen by far so the Q stands its ground. I like your composition work.
Thanks VD! Actually it's more fear than courage that made me take the Q, because I have a friend who got his DSLR stolen in Mexico

And the good thing is that thanks to its size, I got it almost always with me whereas I know I would have left the DSLR at the hotel sometimes.

Your post process looks beautiful. Could you share how have you done this, please? I so much love this color tone!
Thanks Zany. Actually I'm using a bunch of Lightroom presets I've found here and there, but the ones I'm using the most are the onOne presets. You can find them here : Lightroom Presets - onOne Software (they have presets for Aperture also).
Then I tweak the settings if needed.
Hope that helps

@ChopperCharles > nice tube shots indeed!

FA50 f1.7 really shines in low light, but daylight is another matter. On the Q, the purple fringing (which isn't noticeable on my Kx or K01) is blatant, ugly, and a great many pixels wide. The purple fringing doesn't go away even when the lens is stopped down to f8. It's still amazingly sharp, but if there's any kind of high contrast purple fringing comes in to play. The best way I've found to deal with it is to shoot at f4 and set exposure compensation to -1 stop. Then I can bring the brightness back up in post. Not ideal in the least.

But for dimly lit stages, concerts, or anything in low light, it does very, very well.

Edit - after playing with the lens a bit more, my latest batch of photos have no fringing at f5.6. I'm not sure what was going on before, but today I got some really nice photos, so I'm going to play with this lens a bit more before giving up on it in daylight.

However, at f1.7 in daylight, I have noticed that the entire image has a purple color cast and is very soft. It's not soft at f1.7 in darkness, just in daylight, where the purple fringing seems to effect the entire image.

For example:


LOTS of fringing at f1.7, and a very purple color cast.

Charles.

Looks like the T&T Supermarket near my old place.
Interesting processing - in camera?

A couple of shots from a sculpture park in Sweden, sadly most of the sculptures were taken away for the winter so instead I went for some landscapes and an army of ducks with the Q.

I actually used the 02 Zoom, and dunno why I usually don't because it's decent. Probably says more about how awesome the 01 Prime is!

Two with the 02 Zoom and the built in ND filter. I had no tripod and the ground was snowy I held it angled against objects to stabilize.

The first I've ever heard of this bird! I take it you didn't see this in Michigan, which appears to be well out of its range. Are you in Florida?

Nice shots Andreas, hand holding and getting the water to blur can be a task but it looks good.
