Sony A7s with Nikon 135mm f/2 lens

My adapter for mounting Nikon lenses on the Sony A7s arrived, and one of the first lenses to try was the Nikon 135mm f/2. This is probably my favorite lens, capable of producing great looking images, especially when shot wide open and experimenting with the Defocus Control ring.

It’s a large and heavy lens, so it feels awkward on the A7s (you actually hold the lens and not the camera), and I specifically ordered an adapter with a tripod mount in order to relief the stress on the camera mount when shot on a tripod.

Using the focus peaking and manual zoom option makes focusing very easy even at its wide aperture.

When shooting video, I can turn on the crop mode and make it a fast 200mm lens. With stills you only get 5 megapixels in crop mode, so my Nikon D800E is the proper camera since it gives you 15mp, plenty for prints.

All images below were taken with the Sony A7s and the 135mm f2 lens.
