Folks who visit my blog on a regular basis know that I like to shoot dogs, cats, macro and portraits. This time around I’m posting some of my latest dog photos taken with the Nikon V1, 18.5mm f/1.8 and “Plastilux” 50mm f/1.4 C-Mount lens. Let’s begin with the shots taken with the 18.5mm f/1.8.
Bokeh looks quite nice in some of these, but it is nowhere near as smooth as with the 50mm f/1.4 C-Mount lens. The following two shots (and those I have posted here) show how great the potential for ultra thin DOF with the V1 is, when you mount a fast telephoto lens, such as the 50/1.4. The 1″ sensor might be relatively small, but with such a lens attached, you are shooting with a 135mm f/ 3.8 full frame equivalent. Not shabby at all! You can expect similar, although somewhat sharper, results with a Nikon 50mm f/1.4 mounted on a FT-1 adapter.
How you can support me in bringing you more Nikon 1 love?
If you are contemplating buying a Nikon 18.5mm f/1.8 read my review, which I have written after 8 months of use, and also consider making your purchase through amazon, by using the following links: AmazonUS, AmazonUK and AmazonDE.
You won’t pay a dime more than when making a direct purchase on amazon, but I will receive a small commission. Thanks for the support! 🙂
