Nikkor-P Non ai 2.5/105mm, Why is this a Boring Lens Review..filmed with itself. I decided to take my longtime favourite short tele lens (Takumar 2.5/135m may bump it out of that spot soon)

As long as they aren't pointing the flash directly at the subject they are on the right path in my books. Distance is the best diffuser and it's free.

I have not used this lens very much, even thought I have had it for almost 10 years shortly after I bought my Pentax K-x. the problem was I when I needed this focal length. I had Pentax-f 100mm2.8 Macro or Bokina 2.5/90m or Rokinon 1.4/85mm or Tamron adaptall-2 2.5/90mm and so on..all much easier to use. I used only a Jupiter-9 2/85mm lens on my Sony A7ii for 3 weeks straight and reviewed it, Here's my Take away.

I put buying the Takumar Super Multicoated 2.5/135mm off for ages because I was happy with my collection of 90/100/105/and135mm lenses But I bought one and well it is my new favourite short tele prime.
Here is my video with samples and impressions.

I wearily bid on a Thrift store auction based on terrible pictures with lenses with caps obscuring identities and cases obscuring camera models and conditions. It was worrisome so watch the video to see my outcome.

Vivitar Series One - Minolta SR? Adaptable? Mount Replacement?

It is a great lens worth about $20-30 but if it were a Pentax mount it would have been worth more. You are better selling it off and try to find a Pentax Version because there are so many around.

Yes the Sigma lenses are cheap and light and dont have Steady shot and the a6400 is cheap and light and doesn't have steady shot. If you throw steady shot in either of those you lose the cheap(25%more$ in the camera) and light(12%more weightin the camera) side of the equation. I personally don't have those Sigms lenses and have not seen many sony aps-c owners with them so they can't be making waves with every aps-c owner .

Four of the native aps-c lenses don't have OSS 16mm,19mm,35mm macro and zeiss 24mm 1.4. Like I said not enough of those lenses to justify raising the cost of this camera. It is meant as a middle/high end mirrorless aps-c .Sony likely has a camera about ready for those people soon. If this were named the A6600+ I would understand why the lack of ibis would be an issue but it is not.

So what if it doesn't have Ibis? Almost all Sony E mount lenses have Optical Steady Shot.

I Have over 3000 images on Flickr..got to start weeding with extreme prejudice. I was trying to figure out a way to download all my photos from my Flickr account in the case I can't make the cutoff date.
Here is a video I made of how to do it. I am sure there are other ways to do it but this worked pretty quick for me and no need for 3rd party apps. I may go pro at some point but not right now.
