    The corners are sharp but not without some colour cast especially with skys.

    BTW The second image the plain of focus was out of line by accident because of the Tilt adapter.

    Im a little confused I am focused on the very middle of the Dodge lettering which sticks out at 1.8 everything after about 3 inches is out of focus.

    Guy: you are missing my meaning. What I am asking for is a closeup of the paint scrapes on the truck's front left fender...I think there is some nice abstract color in that area.

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    I picked up a Novoflex Nikon to Sony adapter today and these are the first few pics taken with it. I'm pretty happy with the results so far and find focusing easier than ever. I have turned off peaking and wait for the object i'm focusing on to "shimmer". Sometimes the peaking dots get in the way.

    Yeah, it looks like it does with most of the Leica R lenses ... they're blocky looking things. The Summicron-R 90/2 does seem a mite more compact.

    I have my bag set up with the 50/1.4 and 24/2.8 for tomorrow morning's walk, presuming that I feel well enough to go on my usual walk. I was going to carry the 135, but I'm in more of a wide mood at the moment.

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    Short report on the Canon TSE 24/3.5 L II with Metabones Smart Adaptor III:

    This lens with adaptor is of course a beast on the A7R. Though big and quite heavy it still fits nice in my "handbag" style, small bag. Packed it together with the Leica Summicron M 90/2.0 and got a 90/24 combination.

    I used the TSE only handheld with grid and level in the EVF, this worked surprisingly well. Shifts are less problematic than tilts for these a tripod is certainly necessary. Shifts with the cam in level work good handheld.
    I have no problems with the Metabones.


    The first one is part of the facade of the "Spar und Bauverein", Mannheim. The "Savings and Building Cooperative", founded 1895 is a social cooperative to provide affordable living space to their members. 2011 this house was build with the cooperative's offices in the ground floor and apartments in the rest.

    When i looked at that photo, not on location but on my screen and the print i had made, the famous Jazz Classic "Take Five" from Dave Brubeck came to my mind.
    The pic shows 5/4th and brings to symmetry 5 and 4, uneven and even as Brubeck's song with its suggestive 5/4th rhythm.


    "5/4"

    TSE 24/3.5 II, medium shift up, no perspective control in PP




    The second photo shows the facade of the "Institut für deutsche Sprache", Mannheim - "Institute for German Language" the famous "Duden Press".
    The Duden, well known by every German, is the reference of orthography.


    "Duden"

    TSE 24/3.5 II, full shift up, no correction in post

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    Some remarks on stray light and inner reflections because of the adapter.
    As you can see in the above pictures of mine in photo 1 the down leftcorner and the second photo the left uppercorner you see stray light from inner reflections due to the adapter, just like I have with some of my C/Y Zeiss lenses.
    I found an even better solution for this then rubber rings with the adapters I have at home. If you use --to Leica M- adapters first and then put them on the Leica M to E mount adapter all the stray light is gone.
    To Leica M adapters cover the chrome parts of the Contax and Leica R mounts much better and are all black inside. Works fine
    The disadvantage is the use of two adapters but somehow my -to Leica M- adapters are way better build.

    I will buy a Novoflex adapter for C/Y soon because they seem to cover the chrome parts also quiet well but for the time being this is allright.

    I also use this combo a lot since I still have Leica M lens and cameras. Sometimes there is an advantage to have 2 adapters combined since one of them may be too thick and one of them is thin enough to fit as a combo but can also be shimmed to each lens. Thus, the X-Leica M adapter can be shimmed and leave permanently on the X lens while the Leica M-Sony E adapter can be constant.

    I'm staying in today, battling the coldy/fevery thing I've been fighting for three days already, so no walk this morning. I'll work on some photos I haven't had time to process from recent weeks instead of making new stuff.


    Sony A7 + Summicron-R 90mm f/2
    ISO 100 @ f/2.8 @ 1/1600

    A little Mondrian-ish, perhaps. ;-)

    Thanks for looking! Comments appreciated.

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    Hi all. As I posted over on the Fuji forum I am really liking what I see in the new Fuji X-T1. But I realized the price of the new Fuji and the inevitable Speedbooster I would purchase for it is actually a little more then what I can get an A7 body only for.

    Since all I shoot is old manual focus lenses (and the A7 is perfect for that) I thought I would go give the it a test at a local camera store. I brought a bevy of legacy glass and ran some images thru them. I pretty pleased with what the camera can do. Here are just a few samples. The first two are from the Yashica ML 50/1.7 (series 2) and the last is from the Yashica ML Macro 55/4.

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    Walked out on the reservoir behind my house. We call these things snow rollers, but it reminded me of The Racetrack in Death Valley. The wind picks up and the snow starts to peel and roll.

    All shot with the Zeiss 25 f/2. I was out about 2 hours in 2 degrees F, camera was fine but my right hand got cold until I started moving again. I must say I could operate most the controls with clunky gloves on.

    Thanks Michiel! and the others who 'liked' it. :-)

    Question for you all: Is the Sony RM-VPR1 Remote Control the correct wired remote to use with the Sony A7/A7r? The manual seems oddly inconclusive about it, and the device specs look like they were written before the A7 was around.

    thx

    Yes indeed and you can also activate the 2 sec timer without changing setting on the camera. Works well.

    Sure, I'll give it a try in the next day or so. I find it to be sharpest macro lens I've ever used, despite Sigma's less than stellar rep for quality control.

    Stay tuned!

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    I went to the 24 Hours of Daytona race last week and weekend - it was a lot of fun and very impressive on a lot of levels.


    Most taken with the A7 and CV35/1.2 II, a few with the CV15/4.5 including the panorama, which was an in-camera vertical-orientation pano - JPG output, so no correction for the color shift caused by that lens on the camera.

    I also took the Summilux-R 80 and CV180/4 SL. I tried to get shots with crisp cars and background blur, but really needed AF and stabilization of some sort to pull that off. I had a ton of non-keepers, and the ones I am keeping usually aren't that sharp/in-focus at 100%.

    I would probably recommend the A7R for night shots actually, because of the sensor-topping flare problem that the A7 has. The R has a bit of it but much less. (if you haven't seen this, bright lights in dark shots like at night have internal reflections within the sensor toppings and cause expanding-disc flares next to the light source. . .looks like they are ray-guns to me).

    I'm starting to think about getting an R just because of this . . .

    Seems that not every one is seeing those artifacts. I just looked at my budget and I don't think adding an R to the 7 is going to happen this month

    But, gung hay fat choi - or the day after

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    I would like to contribute two uncommon lenses.

    A7 + Helios 44-2 58mm
    a quite surprising lens from USSR, ugly as they come but quite competent, and will cost you around 25 euro



    and my prized possession: an uncoated 1936 Leitz Summar 50mm
    more expensive but it definitely has character to spare

    Nice way to see the differences! :-)

    I'm going to have to try out the '40 Zeiss Biotar 40/2 and '38 Zeiss Tessar 38/2.8 ... both are with Berning Robot II threaded mount, but I have adapters so I can try them on the M-mount adapter.

    Thank you.
    You certainly should try them: as far as I know the Helios is a Biotar clone.
    I'm eager to see the results.
    I like old lenses: like listening to digital music with a tube amplifier

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    Some very wild skies here on the south jersey coast lately. Taken Jan 29, 2014. Looks like a "tornado". A7R: 1/30 f8 hand held, monopod. Not as razor sharp as I would want (too lazy for a tripod), but should go at least to 16"x24" as the composition does not depend on minute detail.
    Thanks

    Here's flat field shot, David. Not a real close close up. a7r with Sony LE4A adapter and Sigma 70 mm macro at f5.6.



    I took a whole series from f2.8 to f11 and really cannot tell one from another except for DOF of the background. I can report there is virtually no vignetting after full aperture and no smearing in the corners. This is no surprise as the rear element of the Sigma is well forward of the mount and about 3 inches from the sensor.

    The bottom corners at 100% are just as sharp as the centre with very crisp rendering of the texture of the stone.

    Question for you all: Is the Sony RM-VPR1 Remote Control the correct wired remote to use with the Sony A7/A7r? The manual seems oddly inconclusive about it, and the device specs look like they were written before the A7 was around.

    thx

    I am using the low-price Vello IR-S1 IR Remote for Select Sony Cameras. Works without a hitch. $8 at B&H.

    Well it rained all day yesterday, but woke up this morning back to sticky snow. So I went to one of my favorite places this morning.
