Continuing from where I left off with the Wide-Angle Vignettes, posted previously. These are the images from the long or telephoto end of the lens, which to me, is about as normal as what they are supposed to be. As I mentioned in the previous post, this was a fun session where I had the Sony DT 18-70mm 1:3.5-5.6 Zoom mounted on a Maxxum 7000.

The whole idea of mounting a DSLR lens, more so one designed for the ASP-C sensor, was actually an experiment with which you can get interesting results. Lenses designed for ASP-C sensors have a smaller imaging circle, and at the wide end of the lens, the image circle is much smaller than the film frame size, thus the vignette effect, which will dissipate as you zoom in past the 24mm focal length mark on the Sony DT.
