After my last post with Restaurantography I decided to start a flickr group as well as a facebook group call Restaurantography. I know one of the most posted photograph on the social networking sites are all about food, so I figure why not get them pooled all together?
Anyways, if you’re interested in joining, here are the links.



Well, I still had some pictures I took over the holidays with the Sony Nex-5n. These were all the catered food at my holiday friends gathering. It’s fitting for the Restaurantography theme. Just like the other pictures, it was taken with the Sony Nex-5n + Leica 35mm f/1.4 Summilux-M Lens + the Macro adapter from ebay.

Enjoy the food!!

Here are some other pictures I took while I had the Sony NEX-5n. I must say, it’s a very capable body. I think whenever my NEX-7 arrive, it will fill the gap nicely of where my M9 won’t do. One perfect example would be Macro. I bought this M to NEX Macro adapter from Ebay. You can find the link here

It’s made by a guy in Taiwan. First impression of the adapter is very good. It’s a solid mount and the macro rotating extension tube section is very smooth. Overall, I think it’s a great adapter to always keep on the NEX. That is, if you’re like me, only have Leica lenses. I don’t plan on buying any E-mount lens anytime soon.

Well, it does get some used to though. Now you almost have 2 focusing ring to play with. I found if you plan on taking close up of something, turn the ring on the adapter first, then fine tune the focus with the lens focusing ring. With the focus peaking, it makes taking sharp images a snap!! I think my manual focusing skills are faster and more consistent that auto focus now!!

Anyways, here are some shots I took at one of the X’Mas banquet at a local Chinese restaurant. All shot with the Sony NEX-5n with Leica 35mm f/1.4 Summilux-M
