This one is taken with the Zeiss 100mm macro with a Nikon mount, adapted to the NEX.

It is backlit by morning sun, and the in camera flash used for fill.

As for the flash, I just popped it up and let it do its automatic thing. I did have to try a few shots until I found the best aperture. My first shots overexposed substantially. This shot was shut down to f8+ (I think). But the auto ISO went to 160. I could have gone into the menu to set it for fill flash, but I do not like menus, so I just played with the aperture until it worked.

Thanks, Dan. I tried something similar and ran into the same thing on overexposure. I guess I just need to experiment more with the aperture.

I was so pleased with this new acquisition, Leitz Canada Summicron 90 f2 and this result, it's the one thing that keeps me from trading everything for an RX1... almost!
