Enchanted Garden -- NEX-5 & Ilex 80mm f1.3. Click to see larger.
Another sample of the Ilex lens from Allen Gardens. I do think that for some situations, this lens is quite alright, as long as the pictures don't require accurate colour and sharpness. It does have its strong points in the flawed sort of way. In fact, if not over used, it provides a bit of fresh air from pictures of today's highly corrected lenses. Sometimes, we do need to do something different.
