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.
    Hi Anna:

    As far as the Tamron, it's pretty good. Not an epic lens but pretty nice for walking around. With the LAEA3 (or LAEA4 if you want AF) it isn't too large and it's very inexpensive and I actually like some of the pictures I've taken walking around in Manhattan on a sunny day with it. I'll call it my walking around in the park on a sunny day lens.

    Next to address the greenish cast. I believe I caused that in Lightroom. This picture although appealing to me in composition needed quite a bit of adjustment (exposure, shadows). I probably caused the cast by fiddling too much. And now for my secret shame ... I am probably one of the most profoundly green color blind men on the planet. When I look at a stop light it looks white to me. I usually annoy my wife into checking for green (and to a lesser extent red) anomalies in my photos. I really should switch to black and white but I cling to my love of my own pseudo-colors with a hard to justify fervor. Ah well.
    Best regards,
    John

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series


    Olympus has updated the firmware for its flagship mirrorless camera, the OM-D E-M1, adding a mode that's designed to eliminate image blurring due to 'shutter shock' by using an electronic first curtain at speeds below 1/320sec.
    The shutter is held open during normal live view, and when the shutter button is pressed it closes so the sensor can be reset, then quickly opens again to make the exposure. This process has been blamed for sometimes introducing slight image blurring across a specific range of shutter speeds (usually around 1/60-1/250sec).
    Who's next ?




    Kind regards.

    Jono and I have temporarily swapped my second A7R for his A7. I have never shot an A7 but will get Jono's tomorrow and am really looking forward to it! Who knows, the swap may become permanent?

    But yes, can we please isolate the E-M1 angst to the E-M1 thread and keep the Sony angst here? ]'-)

    Well Barry - as a newbie you won't understand the reality and complications of the situation. Tim and I go back to early days with the M8 - I respect him for the care and precision with which he approaches every aspect of Image quality. . . . actually, no, that's bollocks (although true) - I respect him because he's a great photographer and lots of fun (and he writes well). I'm not sure he respects me at all, but I'm usually up for a laugh, and we have St Ives in common - so that might be it.

    As for blushes all round - no blushes around here

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    A couple of shots from a trip to the park with my daughter. First is on the ML 50/1.7 and the second is from the ML 35/2.8. The last two are from my rock garden outing from a couple of weeks ago and taken with the Biotar 58/2. The first of them was the only other shot I was able to 'artistically' capture the bee in and I finally got around to processing it. Hope you enjoy.

    I think we're 3 weeks out in USA for Season 4. I'm normally not into the Medieval Fantasy stuff but it's done well. Good acting, attractive women, and a good measure of fantasy action/ violence I guess attracts most it seems.

    Never watched it, perhaps as a reaction from my students never shutting up about it.

    The bee doesn't really speak to me, but I like this last one a lot more.

    I've been playing with the Noctilux 0.95 with the A7r today.

    Catch-up post, reacting to several earlier

    I have found an A7r in my town, available for occasional loan, with no adapters for the nice R lenses but with some carefully selected Pentax lenses in an adapter. I thought of just sending away for an R adapter, but I know where that can lead. Not long ago I purchased an Olympus VF2 finder, since it was identical to but half the price of a Leica M[240] viewfinder. When I woke up, three Olympus M43 bodies and a whole host of lenses had followed me home. But I'm thinking of comparing the A7r with its Pentax 50/1.4 against my E-M1 or E-P5 with the PanaLeica 25/1.4...

    And I noticed some surly remarks about Capture-One's grudging support of the newest Sony lenses. Well, sometimes I get impatient with them, too, but today I received the newsletter from their Imaging Professor (gotta trust a Professor, right?). They offer a new Forensics package, that can bring out things in your Raw file invisible to the naked eye. I am particularly looking forward to trying out the uncrop action...

    Finally, it's not Dinkage, nor Drinkage, but Peter Dinklage. Fabulous actor, ever since Elf and The Station Agent! Nobody upstages him.

    HI Scott
    you're on thin ice: don't start comparing image quality between the Sony and µ43 - just remember the faster AF, the weather sealing, the smaller lenses and be happy, you seem to be teetering on the brink of a precipice!

    Jono, that is one of my two favorite Leica M lenses. Good to see it is still just as fantastic on the A7R. Thanks for posting this.

    A few shots from today's walk along the south end of the waterfront trail. All with A7r+Minolta M-Rokkor 28mm f/2.8.

    A memorial fitness station on the trail.
