Sally's Favourite Hair Bow

Hair Bow -- NEX-5 & Kodak Anastigmat 50mm f1.6 cine lens @ f1.6. Click for larger.

Tried the Kodak Anastigmat 50mm f1.6 on the NEX-5 and I was surprised to find that there is just very slight vignetting at close range wide open.  Stopping down or focusing further away will vignetting quite a bit more.  This lens produces very strange swirling affects at wide apertures, like the Dallmeyer Speed 1 inch f1.5 that I had.  Some like this affect, but I find it annoying after a little while.  My favourite feature of this lens, other than it's extremely sharp optics, is the close focusing capability, as you can see in this picture.
