This was taken in New Hamburg, NY in November, 2012. It was towards the end of the day and the light was gorgeous. I was using a Sony NEX 5N and a RainbowImaging 35mm F1.7 CCTV Lens, an inexpensive lens (I think I paid $28 for the lens and adapter) with a very particular look. It’s a small, lightweight, fast (f1.7) 50mm equivalent lens (on my NEX 5N). Fairly solidly built but you can tell it doesn’t cost much. As far as image quality goes you’ll either love it or hate it. Has a small sharp area in the center and a large out of focus area around it. It’s virtually impossible to get sharpness across the entire frame. I only used it on this one occasion and I liked the results: saturated colors, quite smooth out of focus areas, even the vignetting is appealing. If you want a lens that’s ultra sharp all over then this one’s not for you. I found it to be a fun lens. I’ll have to try it again. Great value for money.
