Terrific for Creative Photography
SLR Magic 28mm f/2.8 Lens
The SLR Magic 28mm f/2.8 lens is a multi coated manual prime lens that is made to work with the Sony NEX system for camera bodies such as the NEX-3, NEX-5, and NEX-VG10. Lens is in native E lens mount and will work directly on your camera!
What's so special about this particular lens is the fact that it is weighs practically nothing (~280g) and sports
unique rotational aperture disk. When shot wide open it creates creamy smooth bokeh.
When stopped down it still produces silky smooth bokeh. Whay? It is because the rotational apertrue disk ensures a perfectly round aperture opening at all times for the perfect bokeh It is the characteristic of a SLR
Magic lens and it's quite fascinating The lens is terrific for creative
The lens is terrific for creative photography. There have been a number
questions about what makes this lens different from a typical kit lens. The
Field of view (FOV) turns into a 42mm
equivalent on a SONY NEX camera. This is pretty much between normal and wide
angle for 35mm photography being just right for achieving correct framing for a photo which may otherwise be tricky to master using the kit lens that came with your camera. A precisely round aperture is accomplished at
all apetures for this 28mm f/2.8 lens and it becomes ideal for use as a portrait or normal camera lens as the FOV is equivalent to
42mm mounted on a Sony NEX camera.
This is a totally manual lens and a perfect lens for photographers with creative talents wanting to shoot artistic photographs using a shallow Field Depth and it is simple to use.
