    Fun with the Sony A7 Series Cameras( all of them)

    Guess i will start this but with a twist a image that is actually being used for a ad. I shot this one with the A7r, 70-200 2.8 ZA lens with Sony 4 adapter in crop mode so a 300mm equivalent . ISO 1250 at 5.6/ Focused on the girl in the middle. BTW I designed the ad too.

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Something for my fellow gear junkies...

    I've been reacquiring samples of the camera gear I grew up with and assembling a little diorama. It's a timeline of my own path as a photographer, starting in 1968 with a borrowed Argus C3 through the Canon A-1 from 1978. My favorite artifact is the little green book 'Amateur Photography' that I originally got at Radio Shack for 50. I learned the basics of shooting and darkroom work from that book, and have been hooked ever since.

    Shot with a7R, 24-70mm zoom at f8.

    Take an old lens with great rendition, stop it down very slightly when shooting into the light, process in Nik Silver Efex Pro 2 with two layers, one with XP2 rendition and the other with Tri-X rendition and mix them well in a shallow bowl spicing with occasional dodge and burn. Add a pinch of vignette to taste. Cook and eat.

    I had that same love for the A-1. The Sony a7R is the first camera I've had since then that feel so 'right'. (coincidentally, they have oddly similar shapes and layouts)

    You know what was one of the main things that pushed me over the edge? Seeing a picture of the A7r next to the A1. Finally a camera the correct size for an SLR!

    Guy I thought for sure you'd name this Fun with Sony and cheesburgers!

    Here's some sample A7r images from Valley of Fire

    Had to craw into this area to get that looks like miniature cliff dwellings. A7r, FE35mm f/6.3 1/160 ISO 125



    Finishing a hike out to where they filmed "The Professionals". A7r, FE35mm f/2.8, 1/125 ISO 50



    Rokinon FE14mm 1/40 ISO 50 more than likely f/8



    One more Rokinon FE14mm 1/40 ISO 50

    I was never very fond of the A-1 (or most Canons, frankly) but it's about the same size as my favorite Nikon FM/FM2n/FE2 and a little smaller than the F/F2/F3. I never liked any of the pro-line Nikon SLRs when they passed the F3 ... they always felt bloated and over-much to me.

    And while the A7 is not that much smaller than the Leicaflex SL, it is probably a quarter the weight. I thought the Nikon F with meter head was a brick ...! :-) But I love the Leicaflex SL too.

    Quickies from this morning ...





    both: Sony A7 + M-Rokkor 40mm f/2, f/2.8

    The full-frame photo at the top takes +45 on the vignetting correction in Lens Corrections (LR5.3) to even out the corner illumination at f/2.8. Shooting just a little bit with the M-Rokkor 40, I think it's a much nicer match to the A7 than the Nokton 40 so far. Focusing seems crisper, handling is better, etc.

    enjoy!

    The whole collection of FD lenses seem to work very well on my A7R too. The 20mm f/2.8 is very nice indeed!

    Yeah, Guy, in Holland we wouldn't dare this. We are to Calvinistic, but not in Italy where life seems to be one big Opera.
    I'll hope to get back there, with the 18mm C/Y Zeiss, before we leave tommorow although we have a full schedule, there is so much to see around here it is mind boggeling.

    Everyone you folks are making this kit sing! Kudos!

    Jono, great shots did you have to try a bunch of 24-70s to get the "really, really good one" or did you score one the first time out of the box?

    Thank you Marc

    Actually - those are from the 28-70 - my 24-70 should be coming next week (together with the 55)........

    But my cheapo 28-70 IS really excellent - it's sharp right out to the corners on both sides right from 28 f3.5 up to 70 f5.6. Whether it would seem so good on the A7r I don't know (because I don't have one!).

    all the best

    But my cheapo 28-70 IS really excellent - it's sharp right out to the corners on both sides right from 28 f3.5 up to 70 f5.6. Whether it would seem so good on the A7r I don't know (because I don't have one!).

    all the best
    Looks like a nice copy

    You do have in the Netherlands really bold, colorful, flashy and modern buildings. Whenever I drive in Holland along the highway, I am enjoying all the commercial buildings for use anywhere ...... and we are often in the Netherlands.

    Do you have any raws from the 20mm by any chance? Fred Miranda has started singing its praises and I'm quite interested. I've sold the OM 21mm because I wasn't impressed with the corners and am looking for a replacement. Will probably end up with the Zeiss 18mm or whatever Sony bring out but if I can save money I'll be happy to buy the FD lens.

    And while the A7 is not that much smaller than the Leicaflex SL, it is probably a quarter the weight. I thought the Nikon F with meter head was a brick ...! :-) But I love the Leicaflex SL too.

    My first SLR ever was an AE-1 with a broken meter that I found in the attics of the 1 hour lab I was managing after I left the army. I had a few lenses already when I traded up to a somewhat brassed A1 from a very successful NY wedding photographer who was retired prematurely due to disability (MS I think). My photographic mentor who I met a year later was a Nikon man but you usually end up sticking to the system you start with don't you? This Sony A7r was my first move from Canon since that first AE-1, not counting MF and LF of course.

    I shot a quick test sequence in my yard with the Canon FD 20mm 2.8, from f2.8 to f16. I shared the raw files here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/8gpddek3a06gvav/bqrwJripJz

    This processed version was at f8. It's not bad for $150.



    PS
    I also included a Lightroom profile for the lens in the shared folder.
