Our Sony NEX Toy Lens Kit consists of SLR Magic’s 28mm f2.8 and 35mm f1.7. They are very small in size, but can give shooters a big spark in creativity. If you find yourself suffering from shooter’s block, give this little kit a try. It’s not going to add any weight that you’d notice. They take up very little space. Heck, you might even find yourself letting go just a bit and shooting some creatively-soft images or video.
If less-than-perfect terrifies you, you may want to hit the back button on you browser and check out another lens. But if you’re willing to put aside the “Must Have Perfect Lens” self that lives within us all, you may have a lot of fun with this kit.
Q and A
You may be sitting there a bit confused by what this kit is designed for and curious about the technical aspects. Well, let’s have a bit of a one-person Q-and-A. Okay? Here goes:
- Will you get corner sharpness? Ha, no.
- How about a fast, circular aperture? Nope, creatively polygon.
- Well do they at least autofocus? Absolutely no!
Okay, now to a few serious points. In order to use these lenses on your Sony E-mount cameras, you will need to go in to the menu and turn “Shoot W/O Lens” to on. We also suggest shooting in either Aperture-Priority of Manual mode when using these lenses. All of the different E-mount cameras offer some sort of manual focus assist function, whether it’s magnified view or some variation of peeking. This is the best way to ensure what you’re shooting is actually in focus.
