This topic of 90mm lenses have been discussed many times I know. But I thought I should contribute too, with my own post and some findings. With my quest to get a Leica mount portrait lens for my Sony A7ii camera, I visited red dot cameras in London. I tried various lenses as below 1) 80 Lux-R (similar to 75 lux it is said) 2) 100/2.8 APO-R 3) 90 elmarit-m 4) 90 Summicron-m (non APO) 5) 90/4 macro elmar m I attach a collage of pictures (raw, unprocessed) made with maximum aperture of each lens, except number 2. Unfortunately, I did not like elmarit, you can see why from the attached picture. It feels too warm to me (bottom left). For me, I think the top left (80-lux) and top right (90 cron, non APO) have the best rendition; Lux for its dreamy magical look and the non APO for being very pleasant with good skin tones. macro elmar m (bottom right) is good too, but it won't achieve much separation with f4 over cron. I know this is a very limited set-up and these lenses will work differently outdoors. What do people think based on my attachment?
Hi I've done some searching (both in the forum and online in general) and still can't seem to figure out how to make this all work cohesively. I'm hoping someone can give me some simple instructions - I'm sure I'm just overlooking something. A few months ago, I bought the M Macro Adapter, thinking it would enable macro photography on all of my lenses. I honestly can't tell if it does - it's not at all like the macro experience I'm used to with my Nikon gear (where I can get a fly ball to fill up an entire frame). I play around with it every now and then and can get visibly closer than I can with anything else... but it's not very macro. So I was traveling recently and got an amazing deal on the collapsible Elmar 90 Macro kit - add in the tax refund and I felt morally obligated to buy it (that's the GAS speaking). It comes with the lens, the goggles, and a variable finder. Nice. So... to shoot macro - what pieces arm I supposed to be using ? Any basic guidance anyone could provide will be super appreciated ! Thanks
