    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    Have dumped my Leica M gear after initial usability tests and IQ comparisons. Have spent the time since working hard with the A7R and 35 + 55 FE Zeiss lenses, learning how to best use it for my needs. It is the camera I had hoped it would be, and then some. I tried my M lenses via the Novoflex adapter but that only proved that the FE lenses and indeed the A system were superior tools for me.



    A7R + 55FE Cold, early, with a sinus infection.... but so worth it.

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    Nice image Tim.

    You really have mastered your shooting/post processing with these files to extract exactly the mood you wish to convey.

    My FE24-70/4 is on its' way, so I'll see how I get on with it. Although your reports have bolstered my confidence that it will play its intended role. Many thanks for that!

    I wondered the usefulness of the FE35/2.8, but it is so small as to promote take with more than a zoom would I think so it has its place.

    re: Fun With Sony _____

    And especially to honour that February 19 is the 50th day of the year the Rotterdam Photography Museum changed one of their outside exhibits for just one day with a new picture showing the same old lens in a new setting



    The lens in the above picture has a serial number from 1949 and was bought by my father (together with a Leica IIIf) in 1950. I got this set when I was 14 (so 1970) to take my first steps on a photography journey that has not ended yet (and my fathers journey has not ended either!)

    Btw, this is their regular exhibit, a selphy from the 1940's by Nico Jesse:

    (different person, different camera, same lens )

    Superb image. The A7R + 55FE combo is firing on all cylinders it seems.

    Hi everyone. Looks like I finally joined the ranks of the a7 owners and users. Some lovely photos here so far and I hope I can contribute my fair share.

    Here is my first effort from a walk today in a local park. Still learning the camera, I have a long way to go before it is as comfortable and familiar as my NEX 7. This one was shot with the Yashica ML 50/1.7.

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    I keep returning to that window dressing 231 : there is so much going on in that picture that my look is trapped going from one element, one angle to the other. A very sophisticated composition. Gave it a like yesterday, but it is so good that I had to add something.

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    York Way, King's Cross, London - 2007 vs 2014. The top photograph was taken with a Leica M8 but I am not sure which lens - possibly a 35 lux or 21 Elmarit. The bottom photograph was taken with a Sony A7 and a Voigtlander 21/1.8 Ultron.

    A weird thing to recreate, I know but I used to stand on the small hill and observe the new Eurostar trains sweep around the recently completed track into St Pancras. Of course, in 2014 this view is now entirely blocked. And also note the change of bus to the new 'curvaceous' Routemaster.

    It took three visits to recreate the photograph - strange obsession, eh? And perhaps a personal attempt at a 'decisive moment'.

    Thanks Marc and everyone else for the kind words. Much appreciated.
    Few things I loved while shooting this. I use TrueDoFPro by George Douvos which is an excellent app (as are all three of his DoF apps). For this shot I needed to set focus at 20m (ISO100, 1/250 f/5.6) to achieve sharp focus from 10m to infinity. The trees were around 20m and the FE55 is sharpest over more of the frame at f/5.6 with more than acceptable vignetting. The A7R I think is a non linear focus barrel to focus shift. So slowly turning the barrel in M focus mode gives you very fine adjustment to be able to get exactly 20m focus point. A faster turn seems to swoosh you out/in quicker per degree. At least that's my impression. This extra "slower you turn the more accurate you are" behaviour is welcome with gloves on (and you should try this shot without gloves!) and something not possible with purely manual mechanical coupling.

    Also the zebra clipping and tilting screen again much improved my shooting comfort, I just dialled shutter speed almost carelessly until they were only showing in the tiniest of areas and that's that, pre-chimping is becoming a very capable exposure method for me these days.

    This is prepared for an A2 print in my gallery and the down sizing here is crude to say the least (artefacts on the mountain to sky transition etc). The amount of detail and size of print file is staggering - I'm very very excited to print it this weekend - and THAT is why I shoot, the excitement of the final framed and hung image.

    There's so much detail in the shadows, in the mid distance snow covered pines that I'm almost tempted to faux HDR it to death with the shadow adjustment - but this is how it felt and just because I CAN does't mean I should - although it's a lot of fun to 'see what's there' and good to know when your out on the next shoot how mush leeway you have down there.

    Thanks again for the comments, it is encouraging even if I do it for myself and for the viewers reaction on the print.

    Interesting to see how things can change in a city in such a short period of time! ( I preferred the cookie jar model bus )
    Don't you love that VC Ultron 21 on the A7(r)?
    It has become one of my favourite lenses on the A7r.


    Forgot to correct the colour cast on the wide sides. Easy. Here you can see the difference.

    Michiel: damn!

    Stop posting pictures using that 24-70. I thought it was supposed to be a dog of a lens according to the jury who have never used it?

    Those reeds look almost 3-D. They are beautifully coloured and amazingly sharp. Well done!

    And yes, the 21/1.8 is good but as I remarked elsewhere I am perturbed by the fixed lens hood. I also wonder how long it would survive if I acquired the 24-70?

    Tashley: and even more beautiful examples using the 35 and 55. And people complain about the lack of lenses for the A7/r?????

    Louis,

    the 24/70 is definitely not a dog!
    The weak points are the corners at 24, but not always you need 24 and or sharp corners. 4/5th of the frame are very sharp with very high contrast in the total range. It is a zoom of course i.e. compromise. That means it has advantages as well.

    Best regards
    Werner

    Tim, great BW's

    Werner, apologies I got you and Michiel mixed up in my original response. I was originally going to wait to get the A7 when the 24-70 was available but then I caved.

    I must not cave again too soon or I will have to sell my soul to the credit card company!

    "Take up our quarrel with the foe"

    A weird experience today wandering through a particularly ugly part of the Camden/King's Cross area. I came across this brick utility cabinet and noticed on the side that someone has stencilled the last verse of one of the most famous poems of the first world war by the Canadian, John McRae. Written after the particularly devastating second battle of Ypres (there were to be three more before the end of the war) this is a poignant moment in a sea of urban blight to remind us of how lucky we are.

    True. And having a brick utility cabinet is special, too! Not too many of those in the urban US, adorned with poetry or otherwise.

    Too many great photos to comment on each. Michiel, Tim, et al ...

    I wish I had more time to shoot, but right now my priorities are fixed on finishing this project I have for work. I'm not even going for my walk this morning so that I just concentrate on it. It must get out of my hair this weekend.

    I'll pick the camera up again when I'm done with it.

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    I'm playing at 'one shot or lose it' today with complex setups, as if I were shooting sheet film and only had once chance. This was the A7R with Zeiss 21mm F2.8 ZF2, on a Novoflex adaptor using the tripod collar that came with it on a Cube/Gitzo setup and using a Hleiopan ND3 filter. 25 seconds at F about 5.6 and ISO 100, then some LR pp. The parts of the subject that aren't being buffeted by the wind are pin sharp...

    Well, the thread is called 'fun with...'

    I like the form and shadows in this. Try a monochrome rendering! :-)

    Love the feel and energy. Would put this on my wall. Wouldn't have put a regular shot with the same framing and processing.

    Just some more Urban Grunge photography taken with the A7, FE35 and FE 55 lenses.







    This last one exemplifies for me the beauty of the FE 55

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    Some more from today with the Zeiss 21mm F2.8 ZF2 on a Novoflex on the A7R. These all handheld, which seems to work well down to about 1/50th. I really like this lens on the A7R even though it feels a bit big - it gets much more reliable focus than it ever did on the D800E.

    Wow, that's a pretty impressive combination there. There's a real sense of 'being there' in these pictures. Nice!

    Thanks Douglas - I really must tidy the house up a bit

    Seriously, the great micro contrast of the Zeiss, along with the way it controls light, and the good shadow recovery of the A7R and its ability to micro focus, makes it great for this sort of handheld interior daylight work. The last shot, the one of the red door from outside, had a more or less black void where the interior is but a little bit of selective shadow work adds the third dimension. Even the size of the lens is in some ways a benefit because it adds some mass and stability for handheld work and unlike the FE lenses, holding the camera in the right hand and cupping the lens in the left for stability doesn't mean you constantly accidentally displace the focus ring...

    Forgot to mention that these are even that more impressive to me because you shot them handheld, Tim. I'm afraid I wouldn't have faired nearly as well. I have work to do.
