Sony NEX 7 with Voigtlaender Nokton f 1.2 Asperical

It’s spring time and I am in the best mood ever. Why? Well, I just started a new personal project and second I am the owner of a Sony NEX 7 which I use with a Voigtlaender 35 mm f 1.2 Nokton Asperical lens. I am amazed what I can get in real life, not scientific shooting.


On the website ( You could read the following statement:


In military terms a Pocket Battleship has the guns of a battleship but the swiftness of a fleet cruiser. After several days with a pre-production NEX-7 I can say that in photographic terms this camera certainly gives the impression of a compact fighting machine that sacrifices little for its diminutive size.


I could state a lot of facts like :


The Sony NEX-7 is a new compact system camera, the fifth model in the NEX series, that’s aimed squarely at enthusiasts. Featuring the same 24.3 megapixel Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor as the A77 and A65 SLT cameras, the NEX-7 has an eye-level XGA OLED electronic viewfinder, 25-point contrast-detect autofocus system, 1200-zone evaluative metering, 3-inch tilting LCD panel with 921,000-dot resolution, an ISO range of 100-16000 and a shutter release lag of just 0.02 seconds.  bla, bla, bla


I don’t want to write so much but once in a while tell a little bit of my experience using this camera, some problems I encounter and my “not scientifique” review of the new machine on the market.


First of all a complaint which is overall noticed so far … the video button can be pushed to easily and I did this more than one time aarrrrghhhh


The other thing I noticed is an incredible amount of information in the images. Here a crop at 200 % of one of my latest images.
