    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Quite a rare lens Chiek...I have seen them occasionally appear on ebay from time to time.
    Beautiful and unusal bokeh, the lens has some character to it and I wasn't referring to the weight of it.
    Strangely I just spotted one on Ebay and suprisingly with an E mount...In case anybody is interested.
    Hope this isn't breaking any rules, I will post the link below...It's not my lens or anybody I know.

    Pretty darn cool looking lens, chiek!
    That's another one for the "amusing and nice to have.." list. :-)

    That darn list is getting too long and will get me into trouble some day... !

    This is a great picture, I love it and since it only appeared near the end of the previous page, it deserves to be admired longer, so here it is again :

    Seeing various examples of pictures made with the A7R and this lens, including yours and Tim Ashley's, this is so on my wish list. Jim, what adapter are you using?

    That's great news Jim...I have ordered the Contax 28mm f2.8 Distagon (lightweight) and it has been stuck in customs for the last week.
    Now I am torn between Werner's recommendation of the 18mm Zeiss Distagon (lightweight) and your 21mm Zeiss Distagon recommendation (heavier but superior optically).
    Cheers Barry

    you're a little far away.. otherwise i'd say let's meet and you can try it out. If you ever happen to pass thru this way (Santa Cruz, Ca)... let me know.. always enjoy meeting up with photographers

    That's a very kind offer Jim and most appreciated.
    I think with the cost of rising air fares, I might just be better off financially buying both the 18mm and 21mm
    Although I think a meet up would be interesting as we both have an interest in alternative chemical processes.
    Maybe one day though who knows, thanks again...Barry

    Excellent again Werner, with Jims 21mm Zeiss shots on the A7R and your 18mm Zeiss shots I am having a really hard time making my mind up between these 2 Distagon lenses.
    One thing is for sure I would choose the ZE mount and the Metabones EF smart adapter III as I want the exif imbedded as I am more comfortable with the focusing ring direction of the Canon ZE mounts.
    Cheers Barry

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Barry, my consideration for the 18 was mainly size.
    The 21 is very big and heavy it might be the best of the Distagons. As a single lens that would not have bothered me but when i take, as i often do, 3 lenses (18, 55 and 24-70 or even the 70/200)in my smallish bag to walk around the 21 would have been impossible as a WA. In prints, i print A2 on an Epson 3800, the shots with the 18 look perfect.

    Would have liked the WATE, but the costs.....

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Barry, my issue is that I want the Zeiss 18mm and the 25mm. Wish Sony would bring out their wide already so I can decide I need the zeiss instead

    Werner many thanks again for all of your good advice, most appreciated as usual.
    Size and weight is critical to me like your good self, otherwise I just know I won't lug it around with me, it will just end up being left at home.
    If I buy the 18mm Zeiss FE first, I think I will always be hankering for the 21mm Zeiss FE, yet if I buy the 21mm first I will be cursing the size and the extra weight.
    I can envisage myself ending up buying them both and then just wishing I had bought the WATE in the first place ...But if I just buy the WATE then I will end up with nobody liking me liking me, which is what has happend to Dave with Bart and Douglas! (my bank manager won't be too happy either).
    What a turmoil I am in and how pathetic I have become, I blame all the good friendly helpful folk here at GetDPI.
    Cheers Barry.

    You're most welcome Jaree.
    Band-Aid what a great tip!....No more cut fingers on the FE55, yet light and small enough for any camera bag Many thanks...Cheers Barry

    What would be perfect Ben, if Zeiss could just bring out a compact (manual in my case) 18-25mm so that the exif showed up...I am not really keen on overstretched/overworked zooms like a 16-35mm.
    I would even be pretty happy if it was an f4 as long as they keep it light and compact and optically as perfect as possible for the A7/R sensor (Ohh yeah and with a sensible price tag)...Cheers Barry

    Thanks Barry, i should have taken more care about the symmetry on that last one...but i still like it my wife was in my back and pushed me a bit...

    Your commentary about the WA's is very funny, but it tells the truth i feel pretty much the same.....

    I can tell you precisely in UK pounds as I have literally just ordered a NEW one just a minute ago for delivery for tomorrow - Fom Harrison cameras (With no Frankenstein viewfinder).

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    I could probably stretch to 2k at a stretch, adaptors included, for a wide angle solution but that wate's somewhat way over this youngsters budget level. That's even with my birthday in a couple of weeks.

    Barry:

    Okay so I know the reason (after all, we all are lens addicts here to a greater or lesser extent) but wow!

    I just checked it out on Amazon to see what that comes to in dollars:

    Price: $6,295.00 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You are a braver man than I. My wife would poison my dinner if I started going that hog wild. But congrats and enjoy. That's a precious jewel you'll have.

    John

    Congratulations! Now we're going to see three thousand pounds of WA images!

    Somewhat related topic: How about its sibling, the MATE? Not many made, so not much info (but equally stratospheric prices). Has anyone seen/heard how well these work on A7/r? Especially @ 28mm?

    You will like the lens. I got one 2 years back and never regretted it.

    As for the price, at least the P+P was cheap.

    I have read that the WATE performs better than the MATE on the A7r, but I don't remember where I read that. I find the WATE too wide for me (I'd prefer something like 18-21-24-28mm). So I'm free from GAS concerning the WATE. I'd like a moderate wa as sharp as the 55mm, don't need a fast one, but I'd like a light one. I'm waiting to see what the announced wa zoom will be, but I fear that it will be too heavy, hence why I hope we will get some moderate wa primes soon (24 or 21 would be perfect for me). We need small lenses, adapted to the philosophy of a light body.

    I just checked it out on Amazon to see what that comes to in dollars:

    Price: $6,295.00 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You are a braver man than I. My wife would poison my dinner if I started going that hog wild. But congrats and enjoy. That's a precious jewel you'll have.

    Regards,
    John

    Many thanks John - I have just finished my evening meal but I am now feeling a little queasy...Not sure if it's because of having spent all that money or if Alison added a little something extra!
    If you don't hear from me again you know it was the latter ...Cheers Barry

    Many thanks Douglas...Actually I think that is about all I have now left in my bank account ...Just in case I need to return it!

    Many thanks Kirk...You guessed it, I will probably drive everybody nuts now just uploading WA images....It's what most of us do when getting a new toy - I am no different just a big kid at heart.
    Not so interested in the MATE as I like using fast primes to much in those AoV's.
    With the Contax 28mm Distagon still sitting in customs together with the Voigtlander 35mm F1.2 and the Sony FE55mm F1.8 I am fairly well covered I like to think.
    Thanks again...Cheers Barry

    Re: The MATE I have read that recently as well Annna in my research...I totally agree with what you say, I would also gladly swap the 16mm end for a 24/25/28mm focal length....If Sony/Zeiss make this lens later on with decent optics and the exif info relayed back in to the camera, then this Tri-Elmar is going straight to ebay or on the GetDPI boards....But I am just not interested in a 16-35mm having had a couple in the past.
    A7R sensor is 24mmx35.9mm if I remember correctly...that's a Diagonal AoV 106 55' (16mm) all the way to a Diagonal AoV of 63 20' (35mm) if my maths is correct - That is a very versatile range but just too much of a stretch for my liking...Cheers Barry

    As for the price, at least the P+P was cheap.
    Many thanks for that Jaree ...Reassurance (and a stiff drink) is just what I need right now...Cheers Barry

    Thanks Doug. Yes, the WATE is a star with the a7R. Here's another from that afternoon. Historic Yates Mill in Raleigh, recently reopened after repairs. Two months ago the mill pond was nearly empty.
