NEX & Leica love: the Leica Noctilux 50mm f/1.0

Imagine how it would be to use a $6,550.00 lens on you NEX camera! Yes such an expensive lens does really exist and of course it is a Leica ;)

Darren Chan posted some image samples on flickr taken with the NEX-5 and the Noctilux. Some other image samples have been also posted on SonyAlphaNex. That’s almost all you can find on the web, not many user are going to buy that lens to use it on the Sony camera! Check out the Noctilux auctions on eBay (Click here) to see how much that lens costs. If you need a very fast lens for your camera I suggest you to wait for our next post where we will show you “cheaper” alternatives!

P.S.: You can use Leica lenses only via M-mount to E-mount adapter

NEX & Voigländer love: The 35mm and 40mm f/1.4 lenses

As you know we started a new SonyAlphaRumors section. Many manufactors are building more and more adapters for E-mount cameras. And we want to see how those third-party lenses do work on our NEX cameras! I would be happy if you send me your images taken with third party lenses and also some nice cameraporn pictures :)

Today we show you the Voigländer 35mm and 40mm f/1.4 lenses. They are both M-mount lenses so you need to use the Leica M-mount to E-mount adapter (just click here to check out the whole list of available adapters on eBay) The Voigtländer 35mm f/1.4 lens Let’s start with the cameraporn: An image of the Sony NEX-5 + 35mm lens is available here at Flickr and here again at Flickr. As you can see it’s a pretty compact and nice combination!
Image samples are available at Flickr.
To buy the lens and for price informations just check out for current eBay auctions (click here).

The Voigtländer 35mm f/1.4 lens We found some nice images on Clubsnap. Pictures were taken handheld, edited but without noise reduction done. All taken at f/2-2.8 aperture. There is also one image on Flickr
To buy the 40mm lens and for price informations just check out for current eBay auctions (click here).
