The new lens is already showing so much promise, as I started to fine-tune my camera and the lens today, getting some very crisp and razor-sharp images from it. I took this image in the early afternoon, doing some macro shots with the Sony F2.8 16-50mm lens. I still cannot get over how quick this lens focuses–a lot faster than anything else I have shot with.
Hydrangeas in February–a little dead, but still beautiful in the winter Sun light. Special thanks to @ashery for pointing out what species of plant this is.
Tomorrow I will test the camera and lens, and perform some micro focusing corrections, to see if the lens needs any fine-tuning or not. From what I can tell, this lens seems to be right on the mark, but I will not know until I do a couple of focusing tests. So far this lens rocks as far as performance and quality. I am very happy with it.
