    Snagged a Canon 35mm f/2 FD lens off the 'bay last week and the adapter arrived today. Shoots very nice wide open:

    I agree that Barry's portrait is nice and even if one lens is sold it will be a tonne.

    The only other ones I'd make room for in my bag are the 50 Loxia, the Batis lenses, the 70-200 for convenience, MAYBE the 90 Macro, and the 16-35FE at this point.
    I absolutely agree! Hard to choose between the FE55 and the FE35 Distagon, but I think the Distagon has the edge. Although I have the FE24-70 I'm omitting it from my travel kit, taking the 16-35, the FE 35 1.4, FE 55 and the FE 70-200.

    Now I'd like a 1.4X teleconverter for the 70-200....

    Unlikely to happen, Bill.

    An E mount 1.4x TC would make most (if not all) the NEX lenses useful on the A7 bodies.

    Re. Steam Train Driver...Thank you for the kind words Monty, Louis and Vivek

    Monty, as Pieter said earlier, you have given us an excellent diverse range of images...Nice to play around with the framing to see what does and doesn’t work for you

    Alison and I love your garden Louis
    That was a nice touch to include those bright red buses and the occasional Tate and Lyle golden syrup tin can

    Michiel, look forward to seeing some of that famous bokeh from your 100mm Meyer Trioplan...I can’t seem to find that tree root image of yours now!

    Tre, lovely to see some IR on this thread for a change.

    Carlos and Alan, I wish you both a speedy recovery guys...Excellent images BTW.

    Bill, our kit looks to be pretty well the same (apart from the 24-70mm).
    It will be interesting if we ever do get to see a 1.4x TC? Perhaps somebody else other than Sony will decide to make one, that's if it’s not in Sony’s interest?

    I love my 35mm FE Distagon brick ....My new number one default lens with the 55mm FE just trailing behind very slightly.

    I'm totally impressed ..... Your talent and that lens create wonderful art.

    I ordered today, had doubting moments thru the day, but, after seeing this .... no more. So, thanks again and keep posting more please.

    Cheers, Monty

    Hi Monty, many thanks.
    Once you receive yours I'm sure your doubts will all fade away (+ you will be able to sleep peacefully once again )...It's a great lens that renders beautifully it's hard not to full in love with it...Hope you get it soon, I'm enjoying your images here and on the Nikon thread...It's late here, so I'm off to bed...Cheers for now Barry

    I've occasionally suffered from buyers remorse (usually after my wife sees the MCard account) but never for the Distagon. It's so good I enjoy just looking at it!

    Sort of my ideal travel kit as well... Zooms on the wide and long end and great primes for the middle. I just don't own the 16-35 or 70-200 yet. Probably will add the 70-200 when I sell my 24 Elmar. Waiting on my 25 Batis to ship and want to see if an 18mm is coming for my ultra wide end.

    For now though my kit will be 25, 35, 55, 85, and 135 once the Batis is shipped.

    The CA gets accentuated with HDR.

    Bike 2 shot is more nteresting. The docile background folks (who have not moved at all in the 2 photos) give the contrast.

    Another shot with the Canon 55mm f/1.2 wide open to get a feel for how thin the plane of focus is and how the bokeh renders.


    Mmmmm, muffins... by Carlos Echenique, on Flickr

    As you can see the background quickly disintegrates to nothingness. Focus was on the top of the middle front muffin and traverses diagonally. Thin as paper. This lens will take some practice.

    Thanks... Got the horizons mostly straight though.

    Yeah I know... I noticed when I was processing them.

    I've been running around and it got dirty some time today. I switched bags though and left my brush in the other bag but I will try to blow it out tomorrow... It's probably a hair or a piece of lint though judging from size. Didn't bother cloning and healing as they're just family vacation shots... Nothing critical.

    The building on the left is the backside of the old city hall of Over Amstel, now completly integrated in the city. On the right the backside of the old Asscher Diamond factory.
    Property developers are standing in line.

    Tre, I'm sure that you can help as you are good friends with Guy and Jack and know all that's occurring around here I'm finding that it's getting increasingly tough posting here nowadays Do the "BOYZ from AMSTERDAM" have any real autonomy over us? or do they just like pointing out the obvious!

    I suspect it's just hot air they are blowing off We aren't going to get a ticket from the "HORIZION POLICE" Aka the "SPECK INSPECTOR"...and now we have a self appointed "CRITIC" joining in ...Cheers Barry

    PS. You would have gotten away with that speck, had you only posted just the one image...I thought it was a bird in motion until I saw the others

    Well the "BOYZ from AMSTERDAM" are just trying to be helpful . It's in our genes

    Btw, still undecided on getting an A7 series so I can rightfully enter this thread, now I'm just a stalker (albeit a helpful one )

    Good point (ing the obvious)! Barry and sorry about my wasted time.

    No intend to offend you at all. Only you have the right to make the comments.

    I am the only one from Amsterdam (and Knorp, but he is not guilty) and I didn't say a word. I have just been righteous doing my likes.
    The critic is from The Haque, a posh governemental city, and they usually know where they are talking about
    I don't know what it is but I think the Cornwall network is slightly out of date. May be time to check the landlines over there to see if any information got stuck in those rocks.

    BTW Did you know that you almost ran out of smilies for one post. You got lucky I think the smilie controllers were just having a nap.
    Must have been the time zone.

    That you are Pieter

    I think you showed us earlier some images of where you were raised as a child on another thread.

    I will settle for "Horizon Police" and "Speck Inspector"...I won't add "Stalker" to the growing list

    Cheers Barry

    In Rotterdam they know how to make money
    In the Hague they know how to devide money
    In Amsterdam they know how to spend money

    Context is everything. Not getting a ticket (this is the Hague ) but getting directions from a tram security.

    "Boyz from Amsterdam" from a north american context is meant as a slight (=> dope heads) since it is perceived as a drug haven in the west (west of Amsterdam).

    I am doing a lot of tea these days But then I am not so much "a boy" anymore. We are working on our image. I believe half of the "coffeeshops" have been closed already.
    The red light district is shrinking and there are more tourists then ever drooling around of which the worst are groups on rental bikes with no sense of direction and experience with bikes and Amsterdam biking rules, which is the most anarchistic group of traffic participants one can imagine.
    For the rest everybody is welcome of course

    I'm just a regular member here so I have no special pull but I think it's all in good fun/taste and a helpful nature though.

    The potential dirty sensor is something I noticed myself while editing. Had a similar thing happen with my M9-P once but it was a bit more precarious at first because I didn't know if it was a dirty sensor (potential relief) or the start of a cracked sensor (potential calamity.) Thankfully it was only a long (for me) hair. Before that never had dirty sensor issues pop up much with DSLR's. Sort of a byproduct of going mirrorless... More frequent but easier to perform cleanings.

    Tre, You have to be more careful with your A7r ("Full spectrum") since the dust shaker would be absent in that one.
