    Testing the new radial Filter technique in CC 2014, works a charme. Our place is surrounded with trees >100 years and was battered by the worst storm since 20 years. The beech shown here is around 120 years old.

    I'm putting this RX100iii here as I have previously put up some RX10 images - seems that the IQ is pretty much the same (also 1" is not really small sensor is it?)
    Anyway, I love it

    I know where that is, I was walking down that street, but was more lucky with the weather! There used to be an outdoor shop close by, forgot the name, but still have socks from them. When leaving the place I took an Electrocardiography from it.

    Heck, I even wrote a little essay back then while sitting on the right in your picture where the trees are and observing life at the cross road. If memory serves, when walking around the place at night do NOT turn right at that crossing. More crackhaeds and dodgy characters than you want to meet.

    Georg, yes you pinned it! - glad it brings back memories. If you were writing essays, times must have been good?

    It's cleaned up (better be, I live here!), but there are still some rough spots. Very vibrant district with the market as the hub. I was testing the Sony and I liked the reflections.

    Your CN tower pic is nice - I've taken to shooting from cab windows, and get some of my best stuff that way.

    7:30 AM this morning, the Rooms to Go furniture truck pulls up in front of my neighbor's house. Took the Minolta 28-35 and Sony a77II, shooting jpeg...nice and sharp...very pleasing 11x17s...no hint of noise...RAW not available yet for Photoshop 6.

    Nice and crisp pictures benroy. That's why they probably call the 28-135 the "secret handshake". I've never had one but used it from others. The only thing I don't like about the lens is the long MFD but the rendering it delivers is very nice (as shown in your examples).

    Here are my unsuccessful attempts at trying to get my son to co-operate, he kept moving away from the light. I still like the end result though. All with NEX 7 and Zeiss Sonnar FE 55/1.8

    We had a European Green Woodpecker visit our yard.
    Very shy birds, this is close to a 1:1 crop with my A850 and the Minolta 100-400 APO @ 400 mm.

    Not the greatest resolution and sharpness, but still I like the pose I caught him (or her) here

    Thanks for sharing that. I own that lens too. How did you proceed to cut the wings in the back ? and did you shoot wide open ? The results aren't too convincing alas.. It was such a wonderful lens on my Contax G2 : extremely sharp and very few distorsion. I bet it would be even worse on the A7r. May be better with the A7s ?

    I'm still hesitating whether I should trim those plastic feet in the rear.. After achieving it, do you think it is worth it ?

    Failed Experiment: gentle breeze

    -18 stops, without shooting dark frame. Exposure time 464 seconds. Stacking ND3.0. + 1.8 +circ.Pol, causes extreme vignetting with wide-angle. Forgot to lower ISO too. File is crapola.

    Ah well, live and learn.

    It was nerve racking cutting them. I researched a bit on the internet before I did it, the most common methods I read about said to use a jigsaw or a file with lots of painters tape. In the end I went with a very sharp craft knife I had tested on thick plastic before using on the feet.

    The shot was wide open and I used deo tech af adapter. The NEX 7 sensor is as tough as the A7R on RF wides and the magenta corners from this lens are some of the worst I have seen on my camera.

    I have used the lens previously on my NEX as another poster here told me to put the adapter on the camera then the lens. It works but over time I noticed little marks from the feet. The marks, the fact you can't use the lens on a A7 with the feet, and then reading the purpose of the feet are to be able to stand the lens without damaging the glass made me make the decision to cut. I would do it again.

    Many thanks, I appreciated reading about your experience. Was it hard to cut ? How many mm did you take off ?

    It was very tough plastic and took a couple of slices. I see why people recommend a jigsaw. I removed 5mm so that if I made a mistake I would not hit the glass.

    Forgive my many questions : did you use something to hold the lens firmly while cutting ?

    I just held it in my hand. I couldn't find anything so that I could make sure the lens was upside down so all debris would fall onto the bench. I don't mind the questions as I probably had all the same questions.

    And another - Wild Rose. I use the Sigma 70 mm Macro but on the a99 rather than the a7r because of the built in Steady Shot.
