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

    Barry, the 10 & 12 where easy, but not the 15, all copies where lousy. We don't get too many Voigtlander lenses or VM mounts to test in Bangkok as the market is very small. After you started posting your shots with the Loxia 21; it took me months to get one.... that was very frustrating. That Laowa 12 I'm reserving for the new A99II as the UW in A mount, coming soon!

    Both Get Dpi & FM do have great photographers cross posting so it's nice to light up the screen.

    Kind regards, Takomaru

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

    Barry it seems to me, that I should buy this lens for my New Zealand trip in two months.

    Some of the strange residential area in Kreis 5 (Zurich). I was there to scout a location for an upcoming shooting. The flats are really really expensive. The sourounding is strange. They build a park-like landscape, but you'll never see any people there.

    Thank you Thorkil and takomaru for your kind words
    I have now had 4 number 15mm Voigtlanders in total since the first version...none of which could do a half decent extreme corner...when the 15mm E mount turned up it went straight back to the shop after a couple of tests

    Seb, I hate to say it but YES it's light,small and great fun
    Hopefully it will fit in your camera/travel bag for NZ + An excellent accompaniment to your 21mm Loxia for landscapes and architecture
    I have tried the centre APS-C 17.8mp crops (18.46mm FL equivalent) and they are good enough for posting images here with a bit of IQ
    Just don't expect it to be quite as good as your 21mm Loxia then you won't be dissapointed

    I'm thinking of : CV12 (which I don't have atm), loxia21, zony55. Nothing more.
    It would be cool to have the 90 Macro or the 85GM with me too, but I hardly use it, when I'm away from civilisation. And then there is also the Sony28/2 as something in between, which may be useful too.

    I like this one the most:

    We are not made of sugar. A bit of water (and salt) does no harm.

    Barry,
    Very impressive use of that lens. As I always say I stink at shooting wide. You, on the other hand, make that focal length sing. I am in envy and awe.

    Thank you Dave, what a very nice thing to say...I have seen your wide angle images on your website and they are truly excellent and beautifully processed thank you so much
    BTW. Those recent images (Spearfish) of yours are beautiful... Cheers Barry

    Barrie,.....These are excellent!.....not only nicely done but unusual and interesting

    ......Since you posted these at 3.20 am I can assume that you sleep as well as I do!

    I would be interested to know how you post edit.......are these corrected for converging verticles or do you just use carefull placement of lens/view?

    Thanks Bugleone, yes late to bed yet still early to rise (about 5 hours sleep a day lately)
    To be honest my workflow has changed so often lately I can't remember half the time what I have done the previous day
    I mostly correct the converging verticals at the time of taking the image just as I would a Technical/Field Camera (Keeping the camera level)
    But I don't get so hung up on it getting it as technically perfect as I used to do before going Digital......I just allow a bit of extra space around the image (for tugging and pulling) and polish off with a post PS correction.
    Hope that helps....Cheers Barry

    The Zeiss lenses were also incredibly difficult to get to here in Switzerland. I think it was a general problem that Zeiss wasn't able to answer to the demand at the beginning.

    Hi Anna, in my experience if you want a new model Zeiss lens quickly, you need to preorder it as soon as possible and then make sure you are at the front of the queue with the Zeiss dealer...I paid the full price upfront for my 21mm Loxia several months in advance!

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

    As a general note: the last two pictures, in portrait orientation (1600 pixels tall), are too big for me to see all at once (iMac 21"/4K).
    It is not just Annna, other people have post similarly sized portrait oriented images.
    I think that the forum software forces images down to 1200 pixels wide: perhaps it would be a good idea if posters voluntarily restricted their images to 1200 pixels vertical as well?

    (I always enjoy your posts Annna)

    Right-click on the image and select "View Image".

    It will be sized to your display regardless of the size, so you can see the entire image.

    I prefer to see images at their original resolution, rather than "dumbed down".

    Well, I have an iMac, so there is no right-click, and none of shift/fn/control/option/command-click give a View Image option. Technically my screen has a 4096 x 2304 resolution, which should be enough for a 1600 pixel image, but the 'Retina' character of my display may be changing the effective resolution. My Safari window is full height, so I am only losing the overall bar, and the Safari bars at the top, in terms of vertical resolution. Some of the x-click options will take me to the image in Flickr, but it is still inside Safari, so I don't have any more vertical space.

    My point is that I have a relatively large screen - I would think larger than most, e.g. larger than almost all notebooks - and I can't see the whole image in normal viewing: clicking into a different mode is unreasonable for general viewing - I might do that for an image that I am particularly interested in, but not for every (vertical) image during normal browsing.

    Thanks for the tip. Once isn't quite enough, twice is more than enough. I can now see the full height of the images, although all the text is now extremely small.

    dunno, Ross.

    I'm using a MacBook Pro with a 27" display and a real mouse. The system works exactly as I described.

    Perhaps you don't know how to operate your computer.

    Perhaps you are using an older version of the OS.
    Control-click gives me a list of options, including 'Open Image in New Tab' and 'Open Image in New Window' ('View Image' is not one of the options), choosing them opens a new Tab/Window, with the image sized to fit, i.e. shrunk.
    If right-click on your 'real' mouse brings up a similar set of options, then the right button has been mapped to Control, but it can be mapped to other things too.

    Anybody remember USB Overdrive, first released in 1999? MacOS has supported right-clicking for a rather long time—if the mouse or trackpad does not support it in hardware, hold down the Control key whilst clicking.

    The default scaling on Retina displays is 200% so that one original pixel is represented by four pixels on the display; this may be readily changed by the user. If you change the scaling to 100% you will have 704px for browser and OS ‘chrome’.

    Nope. Not by contemporary desktop standards—24" and 27" screens are commonly used by photographers and designers. And 30" is the new black!

    And Leigh, why so snotty?

    It is not just Annna, other people have post similarly sized portrait oriented images.
    I think that the forum software forces images down to 1200 pixels wide: perhaps it would be a good idea if posters voluntarily restricted their images to 1200 pixels vertical as well?

    (I always enjoy your posts Annna)

    I have the same problem, my display is 1200x1920. Usually when I post vertical pictures I choose a lower resolution. But here I goofed and chose the resolution of 1600 that I use for horizontal pictures. The problem is that I link my pictures from Flickr where the choice of sizes is either 1024x683 or 1600x1067 (whether vertical or horizontal).

    But I have a PC and use Firefox and the right click allows me to open any picture in a new tab..

    Rue de Savièse, Sion
    It was noon, but I was surprised by the light.. the shadows are already longer and it was contrasty, but the A7rm2 could handle it quite well.

    Thanks Annna, and also to everyone who offered their help.
    I don't have a Sony A7x, so I will offer a couple of RX1 urban pictures, one vertical, from Kathmandu, last (2015) spring.

    Arjuna, thanks for sharing the Katmandu shots, too many memories from too way back.

    Barry, nice soft processing and glow, I'd like to see the print. I was just in a Thai version all jungle in my park, storming all over, terrific chill out and shelter.

    Thank you kindly, Takomaru

    Nice images. Some slight curvature in the Sunstar rays?

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

    Haha Btw. I did no crops and also no lens corrections on these shots. It's better for me that way, to get a feeling for the lens. But I will do that with later shots.

    Well, there is an issue. http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/top...502/1#13725892
    You can either correct typical geometric distortions or the curvature of the rays - but not both at the same time.

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

    Well, I would correct geometric distortions and then correct the rays localy. This should be not much work and hardly noticeable.
    But I need to test it further. It may get worse to the edges/corners. And then it will be more difficult.
    Edit: Ah, I saw your tests in the Voigtländer 12/5.6 thread. Looks bad, but I think I can live with it.

    Hi Karl, or we could just turn our 10mm and 12mm lenses into choppies, slap a whopping great big SWA hood on the front of it to get in front of the bulbous front element then hopefully the flare would strike the flat surface of the 300mm diameter UV filter, then hopefully we would only have to correct for geometric distortions
    Being serious for a minute...I had a Sigma 12-24mm a decade ago on a Canon 5D MkI and and it did the same thing at the 12mm end (as did a fisheye of mine), I for one am not really that bothered by it (well not much that is ).

    _______________________

    Anna, without trying to stir things up...I personally like your portrait mode images a bit larger, even if I have to scroll up and down to see the whole image
    I'm pretty sure you can send to Flickr whatever maximum size image you like (Give it a try...try 1601px high or 1599px high)...I'm pretty sure you are not restricted to those particular sizes...but you are if you send it lets say a really large image and it will default to certain smaller sizes as you say.

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

    Thank sep and Barry.

    The 10/5.6 is the first lens I have come across that has this "feature".
    Then I noticed that the 12/5.6 and Choppy, my 15/4.5 III have it to a lesser degree. Now that I know more about these lenses I should be in a better position to use my 10/5.6 and 15/4.5 lenses to their advantage.

    I actually find the 10/5.6 more useful than the 15/4.5 - but both are keepers.
    Initially I was going to get the 12/5.6 as well but I don't think I will now.
    I should test my other UWA lenses as well, the Nikkor 14-24/2.8, Leica WATE 16-18-21/4, Leica 21/2.8, and some Fisheyes. Here in NM it's pretty much impossible to avoid the Sun in the frame most days.

    I think composing with an ultra wide is hard to do, but you've managed to frame these beautifully. Distortion is usually easy to fix and you have plenty of crop space if needed.
