Despite also having a collection of Vintage A mount lenses, the time and finesse that it takes to make what at least I consider to be a good photograph is that much more satisfying. Sure there’s a time and a place for auto everything, something the E mount with the appropriate adapters allows me to do. The following shot was made with a Zeiss 120 Biometar on a Sony a7R

    Here too, using an old (design) lens was new gives photos a life that doesn’t seem to exist in the newest glass. Sure they’re not perfect but that therein lies the charm. (and money)
