    Thank you Michiel for your encouragement. And I appreciate that you picked two favorites from the lot.

    I took a few more pictures today of another plant, this one is much smaller and built a little later (1959) : Lizerne et Morges SA, in Ardon. The architecture is not as impressive as that of the plant of Chandoline, but the place is fascinating, although that is difficult to show with a picture because it comes from the thundering noise of the water coming out of the two pen stocks and the overhanging gorges. This is a place where you want to stay, there is an incredible contrast between the thundering water and the calm surrounding this modest place.

    There are more pictures of that plant at Flickr, in that album : https://www.flickr.com/gp/rrr_hhh/859Hbd

    I visited another power plant this afternoon; in fact there are two plants side by side. Those plants are processing the water of the 4th biggest dam in the world and the highest gravity embankment dam. But there is nothing particularly impressive in these power plants. A few more pictures can be seen in the Flickr power plants album :

    Thanks K-H,

    My main purpose for this trip was to watch and photograph the Vesak ( Buddha's birthday) Celebration in Borobudur, the largest Buddhist complex in the world. This lake is quite near Yogjakarta and is popular with photographers. Later we learnt there is another location where there are fisherman on rafts and they will row out to the lake for a fee for you to photograph them. But is was already too dark when we were told about this. Anyway, the neast city, Yogjakarta is only about 2 hours flight from Singapore. The colors of this sunset came after the sun went below the horizon. The colors and hues were amazing. Thanks for the comment.

    Vesak Day ( Buddha's Birthday ) Celebration at Borobudur. A7R w/FE55 and Leica 19mm Elmarit-R

    Every year on the birthday of Buddha or Vesak Day, thousands of people gather at Borobudur near the city of Yogjakarta, Indonesia to participate or witness the celebration. Borobudur is a large Buddhist temple complex built in the 9th century and it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is Indonesia's single most visited tourist attraction. The highlight of the celebration is the releasing of up to 5,000 lanterns. Here are a few images from that night.

    Awesome.
    I'd love to visit.
    They look like lit up jellyfish.
    In my opinion you should enter the last photo in some contest.
    It's so unique you might win.

    Despite reading many posts on the Voig 15/4.5 v3 FE mount concerning smearing corner, finally I've decided to get one and see it by myself. Probably mine is not the best copy but it is sufficient for my need. What do you think?

    A7RM2 Voig 15/4.5 V3, Sony FE mount @F11 (F8 is equally good, may be center is a tad better but extreme corner is slightly less sharp.)

    Teera, that looks really good. My expectations for that lens were based on my use of the VM version. Your shot shows how sharp it is out to the edges of the frame. Thanks for sharing.

Whilst I can fix much of the flare in post, that adds to processing time of course. Need to look for a multi-coated version. But before doing that, I will acquire a 24mm Olympus or a Pentax 28mm shift (I don’t particularly feel the need for tilt). These mounts are attractive because they will work on a Pentax K-1 which will be in my (destitute pensioner) future! Weight and size will be considerations, along with price.
    Ian, a word of warning: I had the Pentax 28/3.5 Shift lens and although it did fine on the K5-IIs it was hopeless on the A7r ... just saying.

    Yes, I think it completely worthless on the A7r, although with a lot of PP you can sort of get a decent picture out of it. Probably no good to print.
    I'll wait how it will fuction directly mointed on the K-1. (without the interfearance of an adapter.)
    I'll expect the Samyang to do a lot better.

    Here are two shots on the A7r.

    Hi Teera, It’s a little hard to tell with a part sky image but I do think you may well have got yourself one of the better ones out there congratulations!
    If it’s any comfort it does look better than my one did in the corners.

    I had my name down for a Voigtlander 15mm III “E” mount lens months ago pretty much when it was first announced and was really looking forward to it’s arrival.
    When it eventually arrived I did my usual routine (diagonal infinity at various apertures and focused distances) tests and all 4 extreme corners were badly smeared on my sample I was pretty disappointed to put it mildly as I really wanted this lens to work...To my surprise the zoom FE 16-35mm @ 16mm @ f/8 looked considerably better in the corners although possibly not quite as sharp in the centre...Agree f/11 corners did look improved over f/8 on my particular CV15 sample.

    Another lens size comparison shot

    Hi teeraash, could you please show us 100% corner details. Thanks.
    After I did that to my lens I sent it back.

    Good luck with your lens.

    Thanks Barry, I agree on Choppy. Choppy is indeed an outstanding lens, in particular for use with the TechArt Pro autofocus adapter. Of course it's a keeper and sees a lot of use.

    Nevertheless, I will try again for an E-mount version as I really liked the electronic integration of that lens with my A7r2. But I will apply Choppy corner performance standard to decide whether to keep an 15/4.5 E-mount lens or sent it back.
    With best regards, K-H.

    In my opinion you should enter the last photo in some contest.
    It's so unique you might win.
    Vesak Day is in May. If you intend to visit Borobudur, the best hotel is the Manohara which is next to site for this event. But you will need to book months ahead. You can photograph Borobudur from a hill in the early morning for the sunrise. Unfortunately, it was too cloudy that morning when I was there. There is a nearby Hindu temple, Prambanan. It is worth a visit for the sunset shot.

    The last photo was captured with the 19mm lens. Not certain about this being a winning shot, but thanks for the comments.

    Hi K-H and All:

    Below are images from center, extreme right corner, extreme left corner at 100% and the uncropped image taken at f11. The scene was quite hazy and I used LR tricks to bring it alive albeit with added noise. Let me know what do you think. Greatly appreciate your input. Should be noted that you can see some reflections as I took this image through dirty window. :~(

    Congratulations teeraash!
    My eyes don't see any smearing in the corners.
    So, I think your copy is as good as it gets.
    If your lens behaves like Choppy, it should not be corner smearing at f/8 or f/5.6 either.
    You only need to go to f/11 for DOF.
    Thanks!
    With best regards, K-H.

    F8 is passable on my copy but I would not use f5.6 if corner sharpness is a must. Probably mine is a step below the Choppy but this ultra wide still amazes me and I've seen much worse with 35,50 summilux or 28 elmarit.

    Thanks, I see.

    I have the 35, 50 Summiluxes and the 28 Summicron and Elmarit as well.
    Those lenses are pretty much unuseable on a stock A7r2 if corners matter.

    Thanks Barry. A great shot with the A7r! It still delivers the goodies!

    When my A7r2 was recently out of commission for, oh, almost a week, I used extensively my A7r and the Olympus E-M1, E-M5, and E-M5.2, all with their own power battery handgrip (PBH).

    One thing I noticed, being used to the A7r2, was how much harder it is to push down the shutter button of the A7r as compared to that of the A7r2.

    The other thing I managed to do was ruin two perfectly fine Lexar 64GB memory cards in the E-M5.2 with PBH.

    Based on my experience with memory card corruption in my Leica M9 due to power management failures, I suspect something similar might have happened when the PBH battery was run down and the E-M5.2 failed to switch over to the internal battery or shut the camera down. Although I have used the A7r, E-M1, and E-M5 with their own PBHs similarly for long video shoots they didn't corrupt anything and simply switched over to the other battery or eventually powered down the camera. After these two catastrophic events in the E-M5.2 the memory cards can't even be formatted in any camera or in my computer.
    With best regards, K-H.

    So serene and beautiful Barry. I think all we need for the Alpha series are this Loxia and its older brother, the 50/2 and be done. But that would be no fun without testing, muddling, modifying and what have you.

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 Series Cameras( all of them)

    Thank you Teera...It's nice to travel light with just a couple of good MF lenses (21mm + 50mm Loxia's)

    Likewise thanks Karl...It was your little thread that made me think twice...should I sell or keep the A7R....It does make a handy spare as you say.
    Frankly I’m surprised my A7R is still working as I gave it a couple of years pretty heavy use...The battery doors wore out (catch) and needed replacing amongst other little annoyances but I still like it and will probably never sell it now....It still delivers as you say and feels pretty light as Annna mentioned earlier against the A7RII....That was unfortunate with the Lexars...sorry to hear.

    Off to get some sleep now, it’s late here in Blighty...chat later guys...Cheers Barry

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 Series Cameras( all of them)

    I retract my words. At f5.6, extreme corner is not as bad as I thought. As a matter of fact, wide open at 4.5 is usable if one doesn't care much about some slight vignette.
    P.S. These are all handheld so any inconsistencies are due to my long term caffeine overdosed

    I missed something, or perhaps the discussion took a private turn – are you folks talking about the CV 15mm, the 21 Batis, and/or something else nicknamed 'Choppy'?

    Choppy is the name of Guy's Voig 15/4.5 vm mount which its fixed lens hood has been chopped so that it can be used with Lee's filter set and the likes. His copy is renowned for being sharp corner to corner and are used as reference for performance comparison. As a result more than ten if not hundred copies of this lens has been returned! If interested you can glance through 50 pages plus in Fredmiranda, Alternative gears, Voig 15/4.5 rolling review.

    According to Fun with the Sony A7 Series Cameras( all of them) post #8624 teeraash has a Voigtländer 15/4.5 V3, Sony FE mount.
    Choppy is a Voigtländer 15/4.5 V3, VM mount version with chopped off petals by Guy Mancuso that on FM set the standard for excellent corner performance as Guy and Fred Miranda demonstrated.
    I bought Choppy from Guy and use it with the TechART autofocus adapter on my A7r2. Fred sold his equally great 15/4.5 V3, Sony FE mount to Guy who turned it into Choppy 2.
    It seems to me teeraash won the 15/4.5 III lens lottery and has another outstanding copy!!!
    I am still trying to get a good FE mount copy. The FE mount version is electronically fully integrated with the A7r2 for example.
    The one I had was a lemon that I sent back, like so many copies were sent back by others.
    With best regards, K-H.
