    I loved the strong earth tones against the mist at West Bay, Dorset today - and liked also the compositional opportunities of the way the cliff line could be made to 'continue' into the wiggle of the surf line.

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Thank you John - actually I'd never been to this place before but I was in transit on a road nearby and thought I'd go and take a look since it featured in a major UK TV series last year and looked like it might have photo potential!

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Its kind of a weird lens . 24 is not as bad as I thought, 50 is brilliant, 35 is very good and 70 is the oddball. It's very touchy on focusing. On my test at 70mm it went out of focus but just general shooting not bad. Now here is the odd thing on some corners 5.6 looks better than F8

    Overall its a really nice lens. Now I need more play time with it for sure. But its a kick to carry around as now this truly is the lightest cam 24-70 combo I ever ran across. Now that right there is worth the cost of admission.

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Like to go back test it some more but include like 28mm and 60mm focal lengths. Also just want to make sure I got a good copy. So far it seems okay

    I'll tell you what I like the best out of the whole system is the color out of C1 that is really making me happy. Red is red not orange red

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Guy, at some apertures even F4 seems to give the best edges. Other odd thing is that you seem not to get more useable DOF as you stop down (I think a combo of slight forward focus shift and at tightening field curvature). 70mm never seems truly sharp at F4 but is pretty nice at F5.6 and 8.... but 'weird' is the right description: it has been so specifically engineered that it doesn't really behave like lenses of old...

    Another thing: it does much better in everyday use than when you shoot it looking for problems...

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Well it is here to stay and won't be looking for anything really. I'll just shoot the thing and avoid the quirks. I just want to make sure I have a good copy. Just read your report on it which you did a great job on and that's enough info for me but yea it does have a mind different than normal. But as we know these mid zooms all have there quirks.

    Did I mention how light and compact this is. Lol

    I find it tends to hunt with AF at 70mm as well. Other focal lengths it is better behaved.

    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.

    I mounted up my old 1959 aluminum Zeiss Jena Biotar 58/2 and went for a walk around a small, local rock garden. Which is an odd name since there are way more plants then rocks. All shots on the Biotar, some with tubes and some with a Minolta Close Up lens No.2.

    Thanks Tim! I've been following the forms for a while. I was very patient waiting to buy the A7R from my dealers, Guy and Joe

    I am a big fan of RX-1 and A99. This A7R has been exceeding my expectation. In combination with the Leica M Monochrom, it rocks!!

    Thank you Marc. Much appreciated. I was Pleased with it too, the problem is persuading the boss to frame it!

    It was with a VM adapter and an OUFRO.. I'm actually looking for the VME adapter, but they're as common as rockinghorsesh1t around here.

    Yes I am your friendly torturer
    The 21 is so expensive now I might as well buy a new version in one of the available mounts. I never bought the 25 because I have the wonderfull 25 Biogon in M mount which I even never tryed on the A7r yet.
    Then there is the 28/2 Distagon, i think is to expensive and to large on this camera and because the much smaller 28/2.8 is already such a great lens.

    Clicking thru the images to Yat's Flicker page, it looks like the majority of images were made with the 135mm f1.8. The images - color and rendering - have a look that I really like.

    Walked with the Elmarit-R 19mm yesterday morning, the M-Rokkor 40mm last night, and the Elmarit-R 24mm this morning. I rendered this selfie from the JPEG of one of the exposures on the iPad mini after transferring by wifi with the Sony software.

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    I had a lot of fun today. I did a shoot of our local bishop - they need images for the parishes, for press publications, all sorts of things. Dress was from casual to very full clericals with several shades between, expressions had to range from very friendly through pastoral to questioning. Locations were all indoors and I shot most with natural light and some with on-camera bounce as slight fill.

    I used two A7Rs. One had a hand grip on and a 55 F1.8 and one had no grip and a 24-70 F4 OSS. I swapped out this for the 35mm F2.8 for a small number of shots.

    I used Face Detect for most of them, and most were at or close to wide open. Out of 331 shots I found precisely three that weren't acceptably sharp and about four that were only 'good enough'. The rest were utterly perfect. Shutter speeds ranged from 1/30th upwards.

    I have never had a camera that let me place focus exactly where I want it and which nailed it again and again and again. I have never had such a high hit rate on an indoor shoot, often in quite dark chapels and corridors. And I have rarely felt so relaxed whilst shooting something that matters, because it quickly became clear from the LCD that the shots were coming out to the quality I needed. I don't do many portraits because I'm frankly not much good at them, but this was a nice experience! Certainly a lot more fun than a few years back when I had a gig to do official portraits of the last Archbishop of Canterbury and I took along a Phase Back on a DF body for indoor natural light shots, which would have worked had not the largest and darkest storm cloud in the world come over during my 15 minute slot. I ended up using a 5DII and a lot of prayer...

    Can't share any yet until there is client approval. But some I really like a lot!

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    A couple of kittens in the backyard at present. It was quite difficult to get the camera into a position where I could see them, focus, and make a steady exposure. ...

    A7 with Summicron-R 90mm and Elmarit-R 180mm. Dang that 180 is a heavy thing to hold onto!

    enjoy...

    Tim, hope you can post some of these … this is right up my alley, and your post here is encouraging. I'd like very much to reduce my DSLR/SLT kit and end up with just a pair of these smaller mirror-less Sonys and eventually just 4 lenses … the three current ones, and a longer FE prime of some sort when they get to it.

    I also would love to better understand how you have the A7R settings configured (face detect focus and swift placement of the focus point), I've been distracted by other life events as of late, and haven't had much time to "play and learn".

    Thanks,

    Marc

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    A few from Saturday's walk with the Elmarit-R 19mm series I.









    All: Sony A7 + Leica Elmarit-R 19mm f/2.8 series I

    This and the Nikkor 18mm produce pretty extreme wide angle for me. It takes a while for my mind to come around to seeing in such FoVs. I'm not quite there yet, but getting more comfortable.

    The Elmarit 19 produces some lovely rendering qualities, as does the Nikkor 18. They have a look which is quite different, however. The Nikkor is a bit better on corner/edge sharpness, the Elmarit separates mid-tones a little better. Both benefit greatly from a sturdy tripod—I feel that I need a very sturdy tripod as much or more with an ultra wide lens as I do with a long telephoto, and that it's actually harder to get the most out of an ultra wide (need more pixels, more careful framing, etc.).

    fun fun fun ...
