    I think, Herman would have kicked them in the butt quicker than they can remove this distasteful mega kitsch.

    I received my SEL70200G today and went out just before the sun set. Just yesterday my tamron 18-200 died and so this is now going to be my telephoto.

    Re: Fun With Sony _____

    Good deal Slingers, that lens seems plenty sharp wide open, but I bet it's a bit heavier then your Tamron 18-200. I especially like the colours of the last. You might be able to get the sheep pictures a bit more punchy contrast wise, even though they are quite sharp they look a bit flat the way you posted them now. Still the second one is a nice and simple portrait.

    I agree. The bottom two I used a standard preset of mine and the sheep a preset I created for the FE 35/2.8 as the sonnar has crazy center sharpness. I was battling the light and needed to be there an hour earlier. It's times like that I wish for a full frame camera in my hands. The FE 70-200/4 is about twice the size of the tamron and heavier but not too bad. All these were shot hand held and it wasn't awkward. I didn't know its an internal zoom. One odd thing was I found the zoom ring too close to the camera.

    Re: Fun With Sony _____

    @ Slingers, when I want/need Full Frame I have an A850 which is still an awesome picture taking machine, albeit heavy as an anvil. That has stopped me so far getting an A7 (of any variant) and stick with my little NEX6 that is small and light and therefore gets more hours out with me. If I go the A7 road I'm mostly thinking about an A7s, the ultra high ISO and silent shutter all appeal to me, only the price is a serious letdown

    @Malina DZ, what a beautiful clock and well shot. I like the 3 details with limited dof along the bottom very much. The main picture could maybe benefit from a focus stack to get the angel's leg sticking out in front in focus as well, but that will require quite a bit of extra work, both shooting and PP.

    Re: Fun With Sony _____

    Great shots all. Glad to see activity on this thread.

    Yesterday evening while playing hopscotch and basketball with my 7 yr old daughter, I told her that I wanted to get a camera to take pictures of her. She said "no, stay here with me." So I did. Alas, no pics to post of Lola playing hopscotch and / or basketball. Instead, they are in my mind. And I got to play hopscotch with my 7 yr old.

    Thank you for a nice feedback pegelli. Focus stacking wasn't even in my mind while trying to stabilize the shot at iso1600 and 1/13sec I made museum security nervous enough getting so close with my camera to the clock and shooting every bit of it.

    As you see, I'm having too much fun with this lens. And I wonder if Nikon 28/1.8G or Zeiss 28/2 yields a noticeably better IQ wide open at ~12" subject distance?

    Yesterday we had tickets to cross a special pontoon bridge to cross the river Schelde to commemorate building such a bridge 100 years ago, which allowed the Antwerp population to flee for the German invasion.

    Unfortunately the weather was atrocious (driving wind and rain), but I still managed some snaps of this unique event

    1: View back to Antwerp after having crossed:


    2: Army boats pushing the bridge continously to fight the wind, tide and currents


    3: The heroes who built the bridge (a collaboration between the Belgian and Dutch army)


    4: And the "heroes" who crossed it in driving wind and rain

    A few from a recent swimming triple dual meet. Both shots were taken with the Sony a900 and the mighty ZA 135/1.8 and then heavily cropped. The guy in the white cap won his race and the girls team in the red caps won their relay. Thank you in advance for the likes.

    Malina, beautiful lady, great plane, nice shot! Only I hope her stiletto's didn't damage the wing

    October 7 was the 280th day of 2014
    So a good reason to give my 280 mm lens a spin (Minolta 200/2.8 + Sony APO 1.4x converter )

    1: a confused evergreen turning yellow


    2: dropping needles and pine cones as if it were a normal broad leaved tree


    3: bis


    4: and then something rotten in the core


    5: a leek flower trying to release its seeds


    6: and another plant in the same mood


    7: but finally some happy fall flowers, enjoying the few rays of sun we had that day in between the showers

    Here we have Larch trees, which are conifers, but not evergreen, so they change colour and drop their needles every autumn (RX1).

    On Sunday we visited Richmond Park, well known for it's rutting deer during the fall:

    Old stag defending his harem

    A900 + Min 200/2.8 HS G + Sony APO 1.4x converter, 1/800, f5.6, iso640, handheld

    A younger stag watching it's chances

    A900 + Min 200/2.8 HS G + Sony APO 1.4x converter, 1/200, f5.0, iso1250, handheld

    More to come from this very fine weekend in London

    300mm before:

    300mm + 2x TC after:

    A rough matching crop of the before:


    Then i got out my extension tubes + helicoid to take the lens from 1:4 to 1:1.7 @100mm but ran out of light

    Re: Fun With Sony _____

    @ Slingers, I must admit that I don't see a whole lot of difference in resolution between the 2x converter and the cropped shot, so unless you need all the pixels the converter seems of limited practical use (unless like me you just like to test and play with different pieces of equipment )

    What struck me however was the absence of purple fringing or CA against the bright sky, so it seems whichever way you look at it the set seems optically pretty good.

    Here's a few "sweep panoramas" from our walk through London on Saturday.
    This facility works quite well I think, but it needs details to line up the stitches, and I had some failures as well when the background was too far away or even.

    My first thoughts were I didn't notice a difference as well.

    Are you using the panorama mode on the camera or software for your panorama's?

    Nice shooting Bill, especially like the heron. The second is very subtle but for my taste could be even made a little lighter to get even more of a misty mood. Just a thought, hope you don't mind me saying that.

    After dropping off our girls in Antwerp yesterday I took a short trip to the decaying grain silos that are still standing there, but I don't think for much longer.

    This in reaction on some photographs Keith woodmancy posted in the Ricoh GR thread.

    These photo's are shot with the NEX-7 one some years ago at the Venice art BiŽnale (with camera movement and the other one with the tiles on a house in Lissabon.

    No triptych yet, just simply two photographs more or less intuitivly combined.
