    I am also using the 28-70mm Kit lens on my A7, and I haven't seen anyone post images with the 24-70mm that are as good or better than the results Jono obtained with his kit lens, so Why spend the money on essentially the same focal range?

    Jono will you do a side by side comparison of the two lens to show us why you feel the 24-70 is a success?

    Thank you
    Hi Dave
    Yes indeed - it might just be the emperor's new clothes, but I feel that the images from the 24-70 have more 'zing' about them. Certainly, my copy of the kit lens has sharper corners (but I think I was lucky with the kit lens!).

    I'll try and do some comparisons, but time is rather tight at the moment. . . . . . Perhaps Tim should do it (after all, he's much better at this stuff than I am) Tim . . . Tim . . . . . Tiiim

    all the best

    There's just too many beautifully observed images in this thread for me to single them out for individual 'Likes', or is that me being lazy?

    Pasting into another browser window didn't do anything.
    Images just showed up in my reply when I saw your reply. They still don't in the original post.
    The text shows up.
    Not sure whether it's a time-out issue.

    Thanks, Jono! This building is near the end of an old wharf on the Portland (Maine) waterfront. The company was orig. called the N.F. Trefethen Co. I'm told it was founded by Mr. Trefethen ~1870 or so. I believe he was born in/around the Portland area but don't more about his family history. Now you have me curious.

    I already did it an posted the results in a thread somewhere here, can't remember where, but in any event it was no contest, at least between my copies on an A7R. The 28-70 is a kit lens and looks like it, though it does often shine. The 24-70 has Zeiss genes and they show.

    Jono: They show up at home (cable, very fast), on my iPad through AT&T (very fast); but not at work on the world's slowest DSL(Century Link). Good news...Comcast will run cable to my office for $69k. Maybe, I could get some of my neighbors to share it?

    Ps: I'm also thinking of getting the A7r, again, for use with the native lenses. It will be a good backup for the all B & W "A7r" Sony's going to announce in May.

    Flickr.com is delivering your photos nicely again, Jono. ;-)

    I like this one. Is the very green coloration I see accurate? I wonder what a monochrome rendering would do.

    HI Godfrey - the colour is spot on - algae from a wet winter and early(isn) morning light.

    I might try a Monochrome version....

    Hi Tim,
    Just out of interest have you tested your Zeiss 21/2.8 yet with the A7/R...I saw you had with the D800 and it looked great.
    I have followed your other tests here and on your site but have not come upon anything other than a few images without any text that I could find.
    I would like to get a S/WA lens for my A7R as my CV35/1.2 is not all that wide...I am having a hard time deciding between the 24-70mm Zeiss FE and the two Zeiss Distagons 21mm and the 25mm f/2 that Guy likes so much.
    Many thanks Barry

    Both great but I'll have to say color.

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Trying my new A7 on one of my favorite, recurring subjects. I enjoy returning to the same setting or object with new equipment, in a new season, in new light.

    An old blog post on the subject: A Favorite Chair.
