    Hi Michiel, this guy (?) is all over Amsterdam and active for a long time. Over the years I've collected quite a few texts ! Look for renovation or innovation building works and check the boardings.

    Kind regards.

    Apologies, it's not an a7(R) picture (an ordinary A850 one) but I was struck by this in June 2011, where the contrast between the message of the text and the padlock caught my eye. Never did anything with the pic until today however. Never thought this was from a guy who produced a lot more of these.

    For some reason or other it was the picture by Knorp earlier, that made me remember this one I took in Wells Cathedral (Somerset) a couple of weeks back.
    Sea of Steps at the Chapter House, Wells Cathedral....A7R 55mm FE
    I apologize to Frederick Evans for not printing it on Platinotype paper but thank him for his original idea :-)

    It's in anticipation of you starting a "Bokehgraphy with the Sony A7" thread.
    Seriously, you are turning out great stuff since you retired - it's tough not to get inspired. I did manage to avoid the Sigma thing though.

    I'm not a member, but I suspect that because the members have so many exceptionally expensive cars, that the membership list is kept secret.
    Here is a Ferrari F50, that was there today. Just over 300 were ever made and I believe that they sell for more than $500K. Cars of this value are not uncommon at club meetings, but very rare.
    I expect that the members who are very friendly, and love to talk cars, probably want to maintain a low profile.
    Everyone takes a deep breath, when someone puts there grandson behind the wheel of one of these cars for a driving lesson. Actually a very common event.

    Barry thanks for posting these. I love the first one as it's exactly what I'm looking for. This lens has a nice look, it gets a bad rap for being big on a M camera. Which for me means its small. Lol

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Last night at 20:30-21:30 various buildings in London turned off their lights for an hour in support of the WWF Earth Hour, designed to concentrate our minds on saving the planet. This is Parliament Square in London, with the usual lit bell tower of Big Ben in darkness.

    All handheld high-iso capture, A7 + 55/1.8 and 35/2.8



    Can't decide if I prefer the colour or b&w conversion of this capture.





    You can see the dim outline of St Paul's in this shot taken from Waterloo Bridge.

    You're most welcome Guy,
    Actually I think the first shot was taken at f1.2 and not f2 judging by the circular highlights (and vignetting)...Although I can't be certain as my memory is shaky on this shot.
    The lens has a 12 blade iris which is pretty circular throughout, giving you a very pleasant OoF most of the time at all focusing distances.
    I use a Voigtlander (VME) standard FE to Leica mount adapter which the lens fits nice and snug on without any wobble + It focuses to infinity (Not beyond) and doesn't vignette the rear lens element onto the sensor at any of the focal distances...It also matches in black nicely...rather than using a third party adapter.

    Cheers Barry

    A7R with Petri 135mm f/3.5 (M42 mount) along with a test shot.
    I compared side by side with the Canon FD 135/3.5 and I like the Petri MUCH better.



    The numbered apeture ring opens the aperture, the ring behind the silver band closes the aperture, never seen that before.

    Sony A7R and Sony Sonnar T* FE 35mm f/2.8 ZA
    This is the 1st picture taken with the A7R outside. Very impressive camera!
    I am very impressed with the B & W conversion.
    This gentleman was kind enough to let me take his picture.

    [QUOTE=neelin;

    The numbered apeture ring opens the aperture, the ring behind the silver band closes the aperture, never seen that before.[/QUOTE]

    Lots of old lenses have that diafragma preset possibility. Can be quiet handy on digital cams.

    Some more with this oldy.
    This lens does have a crazy glow.

    Crikey!...basking in glorious sunshine and less than half the rainfall! That sounds like utter heaven.
    We recently sold off our other property (also in Cornwall), strangely though the weather seemed identical to what we were already getting

    Interesting ! I own that lens too : it is very sharp on my Canon FF and the smallest FF std zoom you can get with such a fast constant aperture. It is the first third party lens I ever bought (after reading a good review in a magazine) and it remained fitted on my first DSLR, the Canon D60, until I got a 5D.

    How does it perform on the A7r and which adapter are you using with it ? The Metabones smart adapter won't AF it, but is there another adapter able to adjust the aperture blades of the lens itself ?

    I think that given the small weight and size of this lens it should fit very well on the A7/7r bodies, provided one can adjust the aperture.

    BTW, there is like a green cast on your (nice) picture : is it a coloring due to the lens, or was it intentional ? Usually snow landscapes tend to exhibit a blue or magenta/blue cast.

    Edit : Sorry, I should have read the legend : you got it in a Sony mount, so you don't need any weird adapter.

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    This will likely be my final A7 post. I'm returning the camera. The file quality, as we all know, is wonderful and not easy to part with. But the camera just feels unrefined to me and not one I can see myself committing to for the next few years. I guess it's a case of like but not love. I'll certainly keep enjoying the fine pictures posted in this thread.

    ...
    Like the angle and reflections in that one. :-)

    Yes, the A7/A7r are clunky things. I can only just make the A7 work acceptably for me. However, the excellent sensor and viewfinder, and its compatibility with my Nikkor and Leica R lenses, override the clunkiness for me. I haven't found anything else I can use the Leica R lenses with in particular that works any better—other than the Leicaflex SL itself.

    I have little faith in Sony's ability to develop any given line, however I can hope. A more refined A8 series would be nice. But the A7/A7r are good enough for my specific purposes to keep. (I'm not letting go of the Olympus E-M1 either... ;-)
