    I don't care what gear I have.

    Another great image, Barry! As an aside, while the photographer's artistic vision and skill are ultimately responsible for compelling pictures, I find it pretty exciting that a camera/lens combination like the a7r and FE 55/1.8 is so superbly capable, and yet doesn't cost ridiculous sums of money. Damn good time to be a photographer!

    I have overcooked this image a bit too much compared to the other two but I really don't care as I am having too much fun exploring different avenues at the moment with processing the A7R files, they are just so malleable.
    Yes this is an exciting time for sure...Like you I really like the 55/1.8 lens in combination with the A7R it's pretty hard to beat in FF and certainly for the money it costs.
    Cheers Barry

    This R100 belongs into the best lenses of all times hall of fame. It is just amazing, and well, she is in very capable hands, that much is certain.

    Second copy of the 70-200: still not very happy!

    So I waited a few weeks for my replacement (first copy, you got it, de-centred) and now I have one that seems usually (not always) symmetrical. And I have to say I'm rather disappointed. Firstly, the A7R shutter slap issue is visible with this lens like with no other I have tried: it's a rarity to get s sharp shot at less than a 1/400th. Secondly, random bits of the field of view seem to wonder in and out of focus. Thirdly, possibly related to #2, there is too much play at the lens mount. Results nowhere near as consistent as, say, the Nikkor equivalent lens.

    Still, got some snaps of this morning even whilst mentally making a note that at some point I'm going to have wonder about whether the switch from D800 system was such a good idea after all.

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Tim, great shots - particularly the runner in #2 - the foliage looks nicely authentic. All round the colours are lovely. Perhaps (just a thought) it would be a better performer on the A7?

    Thanks Tim for your report on the FE 70-200, will stay with my Canon ED F4 IS, a very good lens. I have with the Canon no problems with shutter shock. IS is working well AF is o/c too slow but it still works (Metabones).

    My wife and I went to the local outside bar for happy hour last night, and she noticed this neat still life...."tells a story" she said. I had a camera kit in the car. A7R, 55mm FE Zeiss lens, f5.6. The actual pixels of the hat are amazingly sharp.

    Nice lens unknown photographer (ie. Carsten )...I wouldn't say no to it in my small but slow growing collection.

    My as new 28mm f2.8 Distagon C/Y has just turned up after weeks sitting in customs!
    It's really nice on the A7R (fairly light compared to the other Zeiss Distagons), a little soft in the very extreme corners - Would be my only niggle.

    With Werner and Michiel's marvelous architectural images on this page I thought I would add one from Bodmin

    Chapel an Gansblydhen was once a Wesleyan Methodist chapel, known as the Centenary Chapel, built in 1840 to mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of Methodism. 'Chapel an Gansblydhen' is the Cornish translation of Centenary Chapel...Today it belongs to the JD Wetherspoon group of pubs dotted about the UK.

    This image has been through about 4 photo editors including the Tone-mapping mangle, so don't expect an accurate depiction of what was in front of me!...Cheers Barry

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    A friend at work brought in a A7 with an M adaptor. I had my M9 with the 24/3.8 so he asked me if I would like to take a few photographs with the A7. So I did and I will post a few below. The electronic view finder is the most noticeable change when using this camera for the first time. Any way I thought the 24mm worked well on the A7.

    I agree that the 24 Elmar works very well on the A7 but it's hard to avoid color casts on the edges usually on the A7r. I think the 21 Ultron is slightly better on the A7 series though as it applies to M-mount lenses and the WATE is amazing (I don't have one of those though.)

    I had a 24 Elmar and tried it on my -then- new A7R. My own opinion is a lot harsher than yours. Not only colour casts, but also bad smearing in the corners, even stopped down quite a bit. So, as I wanted to keep the camera, I sold it off.

    Knorp-- Very nice tonal rendering in your Cary Grant shot. I admire the way you have achieved the separation in the mid-tones. Overall a sweet composition as well. Thanks for posting it.

    We have a large Rhododendron in our front yard. Shooting flowers isn't my thing but my wife asked that I take some pics of the blooms. When she 'asks' me to do something, well, you know

    With this one, I decided to have some fun. A7R FE 55/1.8
