I just went on a poor mans lens buying bender. I got bought 8 Minolta MD lenses for this camera with adapters. They work great look awesome and the MF experience is just great. Nice set of minty glass that covers 24mm through 135mm. F2.8 or better. Fun fun fun. All for less than ONE good Canon L-Glass lens. This camera is a BLAST.

This is my plan as well. There are a lot of great legacy lenses out there if you're willing to manually focus. Let us know which ones you like.

I believe it's a result of light diffracting due to the edges of the aperture blades (the number of points in the "star" is related to the number of aperture blades in the lens).

To reduce the effect you can open up the aperture (i.e. don't stop down); but that may not be appropriate for a landscape shot. Alternatively, a shorter exposure can help (in this instance, also taking a shorter exposure and blending in those light points to get rid of the star effect in the longer exposure. Personally I quite like it though ;)


Camera, some lenses, too little time, too little talent

It's a pity the lens didn't have an odd number of aperture blades.

7 or 9 blades beats 8 any time.

I agree, I like those little stars. They put some sparkle to the photo.

There are even filters that triples the effect. http://www.cs.mtu.edu …e/filter/filter​-star.html (external link)

Nope.

Even the human eye does it, although nowhere near as smoothly or in such a geometrically-perfect fashion (the pupil being neither perfectly round nor a regular polygon).

to get those star crosses, set your lens to smallest opening F22 , will definitely cause the star effect on lights, to avoid do the reverse, use wide opening.

You don't need f/22 to produce sunstars.

f/5.6-f/8 on most lenses will do it just fine.

All you need is for the aperture to become a regular polygon rather than a circle.
