    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    I am right now exploring the wide open stuff, got a Canon FD 1,2/85mm L, (will soon have a Canon FD 2.0/135mm and a FD 2,8/200 and a Samyang 1,4/35mm ), compared this to the Otus at 1,4 . Interesting, so here some samples









    From top 3x A7r with Canon FD 1,2/85L open aperture -first one from a 4xstitch

    last one: A7r with Zeiss Otus 1,4/55mm open aperture

    More to come

    Sorry, you're not allowed to use an A7r for "action shots." It violates some international law or something...

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    Here some A7r samples with the Sony 1,8/135mm - fantastic lens !
    First one is with F8, second/Portrait F4 and last /Roof is @F3,2.
    BUT you really should focus with lifeview and zoom in. Otherwise it is very difficult to get this enormous sharpness / or pinpointing to eyes wide open

    Very nice rendering. I would be very interested to hear more about this lens, please. What aperture this was at? How you mounted it on A7R? How it looks like mounted on camera?

    +1

    know it's a old film lens - used in some big Hollywood productions.

    And seen some adapted with Nikon bayonet ... expensive

    re: Fun With Sony _____


    The picture which has probably had me put on the Homeland Security List as a suspected terrorist. How was I to know that it was the back of the US Consulate? I was messing around in the back streets near King David Street in Jerusalem when I was suddenly surrounded by security people. They were very polite and courteous but called over police to make sure I allowed them to photograph my ID card. As I said, they were really polite, I just hope the computer systems they feed with my data are as friendly. A7r (the head security guard recognised it as a mirrorless camera which left me impressed!) with Super Tak 50mm @ f1.4

    re: Fun With Sony _____

    Thanks for posting great images here, it convinced me to try the A7r & 55/1,8.

    To answer Guy's question, "are you getting fun ?", I would say "not sure yet".

    Yes the image quality exceeds what I got from my previous dslr (Canon 5d2, Nikon D3x, Sigma DP2m).
    Yes I have the impression to carry an empty bag even when the camera is in.
    Yes I am amazed by :
    - excellent optical quality of the 55 (definition, bokeh)
    - excellent exposure (auto iso, aperture set)
    - excellent DR
    - ease of use (eve, screen that can transform into a wvf)
    - very good colors !
    No I am not bothered by :
    - noise
    - low AF in low light (don't care)
    - low AF in action (don't care)

    The only thing that is bothering me is ... it's too easy to make great pictures.

    Also I need to spend time learning post processing (ugly default contrast for portraits ...).


    I must say I was so much impressed by the images that I thought I would sell all my Medium Format gear and make $$.
    That was until I developed a picture out of the Alpa/P65+ I made to compare with the sony ... sh.. there is still more magic in medium format colors and textures ...
    But the sony gives me the impression approaching MF quality in light conditions where MF would only give poor results. It gives me the impression it approaches MF quality in good light conditions.
    (but MF creates something magic in best light conditions ... colors).

    One random picture
    thanks again

    Excellent shots of the Rijksmuseum Michiel, both of them. The colour and atmosphere makes them very pleasing to look at.

    Did you get a permit to use a tripod there, or were these shot handheld?

    No those are handhold but high ISO.

    Did he paint DOF into the painting? It looks like the men on the opposite side of the table are not as sharp.

    If so, that would be a very unusual effect for most portrait painters to do at that time...

    I had a shoot yesterday shooting clothing but I was asked to shoot a shot of the earring so i did that than refocused one for me to see how the ZA 85mm 1.4 looked up close shot at F10 with strobes. Very little airbrushing here
