Trying out lenses on 5D Mark II
I have been trying out some of my favourite lenses on the 5D Mark II, because few of them were never mounted on a full frame camera before. Just wanted to see what the pictures are like compared to those captured with an APS-C sensor. I am generally quite happy so far with the lenses I have tried on the 5D II. The results are better than I was hoping, and some lens characteristics can not be duplicated with a cropped sensor. Frankly, there is something else that I have missed, and that's the c-mount lenses. Most of my c-mount lenses don't work well on the NEX, and that's one of the reasons I so badly want a Micro 4/3 camera (OM-D EM-5).
