    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    As usual, a bunch of great new photos to look through here.

    Not much shooting for me today other than some testing of the Elmarit-R 19mm f/2.8 series I. I put it on the tripod and shot several highly detailed subjects and examined corner to corner results.

    Overall, very pleasing indeed. There's a bit of mustache distortion present all the time. A bit of corner darkening and softness when wide open that reduces with each stop down. The best f/stop seems to be between f/5.6 and f/8 on this one, with most of the corner darkening gone and good detailing right into the corners. No smearing to be seen (yay!).

    It's rendering qualities are different from the Nikkor 18mm. Both are very very good. The Elmarit-R has an open, airy feel to its rendering; the Nikkor's look is somehow denser and deeper. I didn't shoot the same subjects with them side by side yet, but that's going to be an interesting test. The Nikkor has less rectilinear distortion and it seems simple distortion.

    Can't wait to do more shooting with both of these gems. I'm very happy with them.

    That one is an experiment with FE55 and Sigma AML 2 closeup lens. Wide open it is hard to get any sharpness but it gets very dreamy. If you stop down the combo works quite good.

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    If someone had said to me a year ago that I'd soon own a camera and lens combo that I could walk several miles with and barely notice I was carrying it and yet which could effortlessly produce 36mp files of this quality, I would have found it hard to believe...

    First day with the Leica R APO-MACRO-Elmarit-R 100M f/2.8 ROM version with A7R today. Not a bad portrait lens, like it so far.

    A7r 50mm Tak Super @f5.6

    First decent rain this year started yesterday here in Jerusalem. This is from the balcony outside one of our studios. I got caught up in a heavier downpour than this yesterday while biking home, biking 4.5 miles in half a foot of rushing water, visibility zero, eyes blinded by driving rain, expecting the electric motor of my bike to cut out at any second, honestly, don't think I've had so much fun in years! Rain here in Jerusalem or indeed the entire country is a blessing and a joy. Wonderful way to feel about rain having grown up in Manchester, UK where rain is a constant non stop dreary reminder of the fact that we don't live anywhere more exotic

    Fun with Filters #2

    You know what it's like: you migrate your Mac to a new one (nice shiny New style mac pro, yum!) and all you software stops working and your plugins disappear. Nik wouldn't recognise my activation keys, all was annoying and dull. Then finally, after support emails, success. So I thought I'd celebrate by taking a file (actually I posted a 'straight' B&W of this one a couple of weeks back) and give it the full treatment: Silver Effex, Colour Effex and HDR Effex.

    Just to check they were all working, you understand....

    My one above is SIlver Efex Pro with the Tri-X preset that I'm having fun with at present. Using their control points for dodging and burning is rather fun actually. Rather simplistic and as such fun to use.

    Here's the Elmar-M 4/135 pic that fell through the net yesterday. Not bad for a lens from 1960. Younger than me....


    Distance to the castle is 1km. Snaefell, the mountain (our only mountain) with the broadcast towers, is 25km away.

    So you got the new 'Borg' cylinder (Star Trek reference, in case anyone's wondering)? Quick like a bunny, I'm guessing. BTW, the mood of your picture with the 'full treatment' is cool...right up my alley.

    Nice! Seems to be just a hair rotated anti-clockwise; hard to find a horizon to reference.

    You're reminding me that I haven't done anything but test with the Hektor-M 135mm f/4.5 yet. I think it might have been manufactured two months before your Elmar-M. :-)
    Perhaps I'll stick it on the camera today ...

    Ah, the lens addiction! I am comforted to see that there are other sufferers out there. ;-)

    The very, very last of my Leica R lens acquisition madness just arrived last night: a mint Summicron-R 35mm f/2 series II. I'd hunted up three or four that looked promising on the web, then thought to call my friend at the dealership who had a mint example in the box with case, etc, for $100 less than the cheapest Buy It Now price.

    I'm done, that's it: 19, 24, 35, 50x2, 90, 135, and 180 mm. I guess I have to take some photos now. ];-)

    Pretty awesome collection. I just ordered a 85/1.4, 135/2.8, and 180/2.8 last week myself. Still want the 21/2.8, 100/2, and/or the 100/2.8 Macro (if I can find a MMJ or MMG version.)

    I struggled with LR to find a vertical long enough to sort it: it *looks* right against the grid, but, on reflection, I think you're right. Curses and black puddings!

    It comes from the Magic Roundabout film 'Dougal and the Blue Cat'. A curse used by Buxton, the Blue Cat (a pantomime villain if ever there was one!), and suitable for all occasions when anything stronger would elicit 'that look' from she who must be obeyed.

    It is only usefull or necessary if you want to Leitax them. Often the AEG, or what was it called version, is even better now because they have often an all black mount which does not cause inner ghost reflections.
    There seems to be no quality difference what so ever.

    Here's my collection. One is lacking on this picture the 45/2.8 Tessar. A wonderfull pancake.

    Ah Ha now I know where all those Contax lenses are. Nice collection
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    It's quite simple for me. I don't want the possibility of getting the "ninja stars" in the bokeh when stopped down. While it doesn't happen in every shot it's possible. A few of the optics were upgraded as well when going to the MM versions over the AE - not the whole line but just certain models. I agree they're all nice and I'm in no rush to get anything other than the 100/2 Planar and the 21/2.8 Distagon honestly.
