We mounted the Sony Nex 5N with the 16mm and the fisheye conversion lens on the bike rack, secured a short stand with a super clamp and lots of Gaffa tape. For the close ups we used the Sony A77, mostly with the kit lens wide open. Everything was shot in natural light. Impressions shooting with the A77:
The EVF and articulated LCD make shooting in tight places a breeze, image stabilization works great, esp noticeable during close up takes and handheld shooting. MF on the 16-50mm f2.8 kit lens is nice, feels very well damped, not quite as good as with solid mf lenses (like the Rokinon) but good enough to feel secure despite the very short focus throw. One glitch, when shooting video in MF (regardless if the lens is electronically coupled or not) with the A77, it is not possible to magnify the image for accurate focusing, the EVF and focus peaking will suffice in most conditions but for critical focusing we need to be able to zoom in. I hope Sony will fix this with their next firmware upgrade.
