    Barry, apologies if this upsets your future budget projections, but that 100mm R APO is totally worth it - go for it. Seems like the A7 is made for it and vice versa. Get the Novoflex adapter as I did not have good luck with other brands for this lens.

    jaree...Many thanks for the thumbs up Re: Leica 100mm APO, I hear exactly what you are saying and it makes perfect sense to me (a lot less to the wife though I might just add). I need at least one longish lens which to be honest I wouldn't use very often, as my old 90mm Summicron (now sold) was in exactly the same perfect condition 4 years later after buying it new. My short list to date is the Leica 100mm APO macro, the Zeiss ZE MP100 (even with the LoCA) and the Zeiss ZE 135mm f/2 APO (I am still considering the Sony 135mm f1.8 as I know Guy loves it so much but I just can't abide the Sony LA-EA4 adapter, despite the plus benefits of AF), all 3 (4) lenses are superb and fairly heavy by my standards. I will wait like others until after Photokina just in case another alternative raises it's ugly head before pressing the button...BTW. Just a quick question how is the boke on the Leica 100mm APO wide open on portraits...Nervous, neutral or creamy soft?...Thanks again.
    My line of thinking to date for a lightweight travel is 2 bodies and 2 lenses and adding a third lens for longer work when required...
    A7R - WATE 16-21mm
    A6000 - WATE 16-21mm (Circa equiv. 24-32mm)
    A7R - FE 55mm
    A6000 - FE 55mm (Circa equiv. 83mm)
    +
    A7R - ??? ZE APO 135mm
    A6000 - ??? ZE APO 135mm (Circa equiv. 203mm)

    This would then cover 16-203mm with excellent spacing of AoV's.

    Cheers Barry
    ________

    Bob...Really liked the Platinum toned shots also...Nice boke and subtle colors on the fish lures, speaking personally I would have preferred the inclusion of the lures mouth (A LARGER shot perhaps ?), as I somehow feel it's tucked away behind the frame mount. But I will add a TWIN/LARGE shot later on, that will then allow you to get your own back , or you may wish to scoll, scroll, scroll on by...I'm only teasing in a friendly way .

    _______

    Bill...Love this shot I would have been well pleased had I taken that myself - Nature wins everytime reclaiming mans hardwork.

    _______

    Ashwin...Some excellent get together with friends and family shots, particularly like the sleeping baby (That's one for the album).

    Cheers Barry

    Hi Barry:

    I've only shot with the Sony 135 f1.8 so I wouldn't try and sway you between it and the 135 f2 but with respect to the LAEA4, if it's the "translucent mirror" that you dislike and if you don't care about the AF then I'd like to mention the LAEA3. It will give you aperture control and full lens registration and metadata but only manual focus for the screw drive 135 f1.8. I also wanted to avoid the LAEA4 and went with the LAEA3 for use with the 135 and a 200 macro that I like. But recently I rented an A7S and an LAEA4 for use during a family party. I actually didn't mind the translucent mirror with the 12 mp A7S use. Since that camera is a hi ISO monster I didn't mind giving up the 1/3 stop of light (especially for the kind of family photos I was taking) but I was surprised that the macro stuff I tried it on came out as well as it did. It's definitely made me reconsider not having an LAEA4 for occasions where I don't need all 35 mp.

    Regards,
    John

He is a fine photographer, producing some very humorous and very quirky work. You can see some of it here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/scovophoto/ - well worth a visit.

    Hi Barry, I would call the bokeh neutral. Attached are a few handheld shots with the 100 APO - may give you an idea of the bokeh. Only one is a portrait (she wouldn't sit still, so it is not exactly in focus), but I hope it gives an idea.

    I am with you on getting 2 Sony bodies. On my recent trip to Europe I took only the A7 + 100APO + FE 55 and just loved it. It worked flawlessly. I also had the FE 24-70, but did not use it and it wasn't missed. I think by adding a A6000 I can cover a wide range.

    Many thanks John for this info and sharing your thoughts and experience, most appreciated...You are quite right it is the "Translucent Mirror" itself inside the LA-EA4 adapter that I dislike - Not easy to clean with stubborn dust I have heard. It is this that has made me avoid the Sony 135mm f1.8 variant over the 135mm f2 ZE up until now, not the actual lens itself - My gripe is with the LA-EA4 TM...I would prefer AF if at all possible on a lens this long with a wide open f2 aperture as no room for errors with focusing.
    I will look into the LA-EA3 as an alternative it sounds very interesting indeed with the lens metadata still being relayed back to the camera (despite the lack of AF)...If I am reading you correctly the LA-EA3 doesn't have a TM (I must admit I thought it did)...Thanks again Barry

    Paul your friend is not only extremely kind, he is also highly imaginative and humorous in his photography as you say (I like a bit of humour as you know)...You will have to introduce me to him the next time he wants to give away some of his lenses . The Tokina 300mm ATX is also a cracking lens, I will look forward to seeing your images with that on your A7R...Cheers Barry

    Many thanks jaree for very kindly linking me to those 3 excellent images of yours...Most appreciated, it gives me a very good idea indeed.
    The boke is neutral as you say which is a lot better than I was expecting if I am to be honest as APO's generally tend not to be in my experience. The Leica 100mm R APO is just so razor cutting sharp at all focus distances with great colour and micro-contrast...I'm really having a hard time in choosing a short tele ...Thanks again Barry.

    Thank you Barry!

    It is a little less garish than the previous...when I have time there is a trout that is stellar...lurking in the shadows. I will have to promote him to the front for a photo op ... if I am quiet and do not stir the water he may not protest too much.

    I have a large collection of single malts...they tend to last forever as I am a bit of a malt light weight ... have to be up before the sun most days and that precludes more that a wee dram.

    And yes ... the guys in my rotating dinner bible study do like it when we host!

    Hi Bob
    I only have a few SM’s that I keep at a time, otherwise my friends would never go home to their wives.
    I have a penchant for peaty Ardbegs personally with a little water if cask strength.
    Good luck with coercing your trout in front of your lens or better still onto your dinner plate.
    Cheers Barry

    A quick snap...High ISO A7R handheld...It’s late here in the UK - Poor light

    Edit...Single Malts not Pure Malts.

    Hello Barry:

    That correct. No TM. For Sony lenses with in lens motors (as opposed to screw drive mechanical autofocus) the LAEA3 actually provides autofocus capability (although a very slow version). With mechanical autofocus lenses it works as if you had the lens in manual. Everything else is as if it was with a native lens.

    Barry, I "liked" your Single Malt shot, more for the content then the picture really

    Personally I'm a big fan of Talisker and Highland Park

    What a nice coincidence! Lovely and well made sculpture with no way to get your car from the top roof

    These photo's were taken at an exhibition of the collection of Martijn and Jeannete Sanders in the Stedelijk Museum here in Amsterdam.

    Thanks,

    Bob, I love this one. Just enough sharpness. Excellent colors. And I recognize my FrameShop script. Thanks for using it. I'm working on an update, so get your feature requests onto my "to do" list soon.

    Many thanks John.
    I really didn't know that...I had read a lot but you just can't beat feedback from real time users.
    Cheers Barry

    As this seems to be becoming a Single Malt thread, I'd better make my contribution!

    HiredArm...That's half the fun (beauty) of SM's, trying to find the perfect one that suits your palate...Not that dissimilar from selecting lenses in some ways.
    Most of us end up with more than one favorite in the end to suit our mood.


    Apologies to all those who are teetotal for straying off of topic...Cheers Barry
