    a6000/Rokkor-X 35-70 1:3.5

    This is one of my favorite, and over the years, most-used lenses. The zoom is still smooth, and it has a big sweet spot.
    Here is a recent shot of my kiki Anthia.

    Nice shots Brian, thanks for sharing. I haven't taken any photos in snow conditions in ages & always found that challenging.

    Very nice work Brian and that Rokkor-X lens looks killer

    For a little feedback, that first image looks like the focus is on the cats back area as apposed to the eyes.... The Focus peaking feature will help you get the focus where you want it, then magnify zoom will ensure you have it nailed!

    Best,

    Hi Brian,

    That's a lens I have never tried. Acts as a 52-105 (equivalent FOV) on your A6000. Looks sharp even shooting towards the sun. Good stuff.

    By the way, I love your avatar... my favorite cat of all!!!

    Cheers,
    Stef (leuius is latin for more light)

    Thanks, Willie. I too have found snow shots challenging in the past, but the a6000 makes them much easier than I had remembered.

    Thanks for the feedback, too! It is much appreciated. I do love and use the focus peaking feature a lot -- it is always turned on now -- but as you note didn't quite nail it on that shot. I'll definitely use the focus magnification next time around!

    Cheers,
    Brian

    Thanks! I have several primes that I've been experimenting with on the a6000, but just as in the film days, this is the lens that ends up with the lion's share of attachment time.

    Here's another, wider angle shot that I like from this lens. It is what I call "Pit Troll" (on site at (deactivated) Molybdenum mine).
