Fe 55mm f1.8 Build quality.

Well this is the first time i honestly can say something about the build qualtiy of a lens, more then the feel of it.

Yesterday i removed 8 screws and a plate from my elbow joint, so due to pain and such i didn´t sleep much last night, 3-4 hours. And today i had a couple of Citodon.

After trying some videosettings outside i went back in, i put my tripod down and im going to remove the camera from my borrowed Manfrotto videohead, so i turn the release lever, and then i watch my A7r + Fe 55 fall towards the floor, lens first. I was not happy, (i screemed in fear) thank god it was only 50cm to the floor. Apart from a couple of buckles on the front edge of the lens, all seems fine. Sharpness and AF is still spot on, and no play anywhere in the lens as far as i can tell.

So my conclution is, for now anyways, is, the build quality is great! 🙂

So yeah, this is as bad as it gets, sun high in the sky,blue bird, white reflective transperent cup, reflective background. Everything in this pic produce CA. This would be one of those times you should stop down to get rid of the CA , but who can resist the f0.95 right? :).

It took a couple of minutes to correct most of the purple CA in Photoshop, 1st pic is a corrected version and the 2nd is a 100% crop.

3rd pic is a non corrected and the 4th is a 100% crop of that one.

I usually dont bother/care about CA but in this case it totaly ruined the picture, and its not that big of a deal to correct when it gets bad.

mostly all i need to do (in my opinion) is decrease the saturation of purple in Lightroom and the worst is gone, and when it all turns to shit, i´ll use PS for a couple of minutes.

If you dont know how, just check Youtube.

All pics taken with Em5 -Nokton 42.5mm f0.95 iso200 and B+W ND4

First one, @f0.95

Second @f1.9ish

Last @f0.95 (the 100% crop is from the pic above :p)

The last is kind of a nightmareish situation, lost of sharp black on white edges, and thuss the horrid CA. Loads of both green and purple.

But it makes your motive pop thats fo sure! 🙂

I love the lens, but perhaps you wont, i dont mind Ca, perhps you do?
