It is a fun camera to be sure, it works well with manual lenses, like the tiny 50 1.2 from Rokinon. Eye AF for a moving kid works well too.

May I suggest the follow edit to your photo? Just lighten the gal up a bit and use a history + gaussian blur + brush to air brush a bit of the editing away to smooth it all out.

This skin softening technique definitely needs some work. Scott Kelby has some great ones. I purchased this book 13 years ago and still use his skin softening technique to this day. Its perfect.

$15, save the technique as an action and always have great soft skin on subjects.

I use Nik filters typically, but sometimes I like using the history brush/blur method to only do spot editing.

The beauty here is you control exactly how much you air brush, while leaving some detail, or airbrush it all away for a glamour magazine cameo. You control the size of the brush, the hardness and the amount.

This is what we use for family portraits, especially those around our own age. Very quick and controlled this way.

I was getting a bit despondent about my results from this camera (with kit lens) so decided to take it out today with the adapter plus Canon 24-70 f/4. What a difference in results! I think the kit lens is getting binned.

Which kit lens? The 15-45?

This is what I get with that kit lens.

Yes, 15-45. Maybe in good light it will perform. I'm almost always at 45mm which limits me to f6.3 and in the middle of winter in the north of Scotland the light just isn't there. (Except for today which was sunny!) Maybe my copy just isn't very sharp - I was blaming the sensor.

I was really underwhelmed by the 15-45 too, I thought I'd give it a go because the 22 f2 is pretty decent but it doesn't compare to that. I do wonder if there is great copy variation or they are all poor.

I'll do a side-by-side comparison at the same focal lengths and apertures between the kit lens and the 24-70 and see if it's my lens. I was really happy with some of my results today as I was really thinking of selling the camera. Now it's got new life - if a heavier one!

Mine has been pretty good but I know others had issues with theirs. Try the 24-70 with the viltrox speed booster, I think you will like it. :)

Another kit lens sample....

Yours looks pretty sharp. I don't have the speed booster but the Canon M-mount adapter seems to work fine. I'm going to try it now with different lenses. It's just not the compact little package any more!

First pics with my new (and only!) body. Haven't given the kit lens much of a test, but not expecting much. Hopefully a zoom is coming down the road that's both quality and light.
