I hope you can help me out. I currently have the following setup...
Nikon 105mm macro
I've been offered a trade against my D800e body with a Sony A7r and I'm 99% going ahead. The same sensor in a small body is appealing, and although I really want a Leica M9, the A7r seems a much better value proposition right now with the Zeiss 35mm f2.8.
My only concern is the feedback I'm seeing concerning wide angle lenses. Something to do with a short flange I believe? I absolutely love my 16-35mm and included with the A7r would be a Nikon adapter so I could still use that lens in manual mode.
Firstly, does anyone have experience with this? I can find one photo on Flickr with this combo and that's all. Otherwise, I am considering swapping to a canon wide angle zoom as the adapters allow for automatic aperture and focus. Again, does anybody have experience here too?
I would probably swap my 24-70 Nikon for the new 24-70 zeiss when it's released, plus keep the 35mm zeiss for travel. I'd then keep either the Nikon macro and wide zoom, or swap those to more AF compatible options depending on cost to change.
Any help, tips, sample shots would be massively appreciated. Thanks!
