I have been hanging around all day waiting for the WATE to turn up!
I was just about to give up when I had a knock at the door a couple of hours ago.
I knew that the Fair was in Bodmin town so I snapped a couple of shots off quickly up there...This was the best shot of pretty poor bunch and needed quite a lot of PP.
Barry, looks as though one kid doesn't respect your WATE.

Here are few from Contax G90 on A7r ...
I think it is a darn sharp lens...

A question for you Joe,
I noticed that the WATE isn't totally devoid of colour shift, especially at the 16mm end as one would expect (certainly it's a lot better than my old CV15)...In the past I have used Cornerfix and templates etc...But I find it a drag.
As you have had your WATE longer than me and your images are all nicely cleaned up.
I expect that you are using some other method, probably LR5 (my LR is old 3.6 and I still like CS)...Any tips would be grateful...Cheers Barry
PS. Please don't say upgrade my LR3.6...I am looking for an alternative to LR and Cornerfix if possible.
Those who use Capture One report that it does a fine job of color shift correction, with an LCC frame shot with the camera/lens/aperture/ISO combo being used for the scene. Hope this helps.

Doug, you are absolutely correct LR3.6 is probably good enough for most things and certainly a good starting point for a novice like me (I really should take a look at it but I am so busy nowadays)...I could be entirely wrong on this but doesn't the DNG Flat Field Plugin only works with LR5+?
The DFFP would be my main reason for upgrading my LR3.6 as I am entirely comfortable still using CS - I have so many filters, actions and scripts that get the job done quickly I would be loathed to say cheerio to them (as they are not compatible with LR).
BTW - Thanks for the kind offer to look after my WATE while I am back to school again...You can look after my parents as well if you like? :-)

Congratulations on the WATE!!! I had no intention of purchasing the WATE either, as I had the 21 SEM with M240. But I have been amazed with the IQ of the WATE combined with the A7r and Novoflex adapter. My workflow combines the latest Lr 5.4, and to date I have had no issues with color shifts, comparable to the M240. I use all 16, 18 and 21 FL's, and I have not needed to compensate for color shifts. I still have the occasional color shifts even with the M240 with WA's.

Doug...You have absolutely no idea what you would be letting yourself in for...Be afraid, be very afraid!
Now that's what I call “Friends with Benefits”....Cheers Barry
Many thanks Charles, I have a confession that your WATE images on another thread (which I love BTW) were very instrumental in me getting my WATE (That Vs. lugging both a 18mm and 21mm Distagon around all day).
I am sharing my Voigtlander VM adapter currently with both the CV35/1.2 and the WATE which is not ideal, so I will probably spring for the Novoflex adapter the next time around, not that the VM doesn't work fine but just to see how good the Novoflex ones are that everybody raves about.
Also very pleased with the WATE it's a great lightweight lens solution that is amazingly sharp corner to corner at F8 where I would use it mostly. All 3 focal lengths (and in between I am happy to say) are brilliant.
Re: LR5.4...It's becoming evident from the responses that LR is the way forward (Glad to hear you are not getting any colour shifts)...I think I need to upgrade and probably get a new PC or a Mac to go with it while I am at it....Thanks again Barry
The improvements in the raw conversion engine with LR5 alone are worth it; the control improvements and new UI for applying adjustments make more sense to me as well.

Rawfa, great portrait series.
Did you add flares in PP in the 2nd shot? What lens did you use?

Yesterday, it was officially first day of Winter in Australia. The day was 24 DegC, amazing for Winter Shots Fingal Heads, NSW, with the A7r and WATE.

I was asked by a co worker to take photos of her grandsons 1st birthday party in a local park. I can never say no to taking pictures. All shots on the A7 with Minolta MC Rokkor PF 55/1.7 (second version). The black and white shots are all straight out of the camera, felt to lazy to process. The lighting at the part was simply horrible. It took place at 2 o'clock in the afternoon on a bright day, with parts of the party in the dark shade and parts directly in the sun. On top of that the chairs and table cloths were white. Simply a nightmare of lows and highs. And on top of that I dont use flash at all. So natural (crappy) light it is then. Lol.
