    I think we are BOTH waiting very patiently for the new expected A9/A7R2 camera

    It will be interesting to see if Guy or somebody else kicks off a brand new Sony thread (Sony A9 series) that's if indeed it's called the A9. I'm personally pretty happy if he just re-entitles the current A7 series (all of them) thread to take into account the eventual upcoming A9 series. I will hang onto the old A7R until it goes kaput I think...My thoughts are it would be a shame if we all end up getting divided up again which is basically what happened when the A7S arrived on the scene...if you get my drift.

    _______________________________________

    This thread is doing very nicely, it's well supported with images from the likes of Pieter, Malina, MikalWGrass, Tom, hiepphotog and many others...It's a good home for seeing Sony APS-C images as far as I see it, most of which quite frankly look as good as the FF cameras by the time that they are uploaded to 1200px maximum wide/high

    ^^ Fully agree Barry, and don't forget we also see a lot of FF shots with the DSLR's A850/900/99 here. I can imagine that you forget what a DSLR is after using an a7R for so long, and it's not a Dinosaur Single Lens Reflex . Just google and you'll find out what it is

    Yes, I owe you an apology Vivek, sorry about that!...I should have of course included you within that list, with you at the very top of the leader board on this particular thread. my friend...As I should have give credit to many others here.
    To be fair I was just adding some of the more recent names that were showing up on this page...It wasn't meant as a slight I can assure you...Cheers Barry

    No worries Barry, I was just pulling your leg. I'm in a bit of a jolly mood after a whole day photo trip with 4 other togs to the Antwerp Harbor. The banter among us was probably ten times bigger then the crop of successful pictures , so we really had a great time

    It's OK I'm used to having my leg pulled my wife never misses an opportunity.
    You look like you have some good photographic buddies there Pieter...I can imagine that all the banter can get distracting from getting a bumper crop of images by the end of the day...But you obviously had a good time and that's what really counts.

    Re: Fun With Sony _____

    Here's two I shot yesterday in the "Deurganckdoksluis", this is worlds biggest lock they're building (500 x 68 x 27 meter) to let the largest container ships come into the Kallo Dock part of the Antwerp harbour. It was open to the public for the weekend, just before they're going to dredge the dykes and flood the whole construction with water. One of the extra attractions is a very large mural that several graffiti artists are putting on one of the side walls, and that will be visible when the water is at the low level.

    The artists and their shadows:

    Thanks Tom.

    That old Rokkor did quite well against the sun. Fortunately I got an original hood with it.

    Here's another one, gives you an idea of the enormous size of the new lock

    Nice Slingers. the 2nd is lovely and high on the cute-o-meter. The third is a fine landscape. Only there's quite a lot of dust bunnies flying through the air in that one.

    After the sensor was cleaned it was like a ND filter was removed and I had gained an extra stop.

    Another oldie...Not a lot happens here in Bodmin but on the 19th May 2012 the world seemed focused upon it, as the Olympic torch bearer with his police security guards sprinted very briefly through on his way to London.
    This was definitely a one chance only shot!

    Love it or hate it, the bokeh of these old Russian Helios-44-2's is something special. This is from a 1981 vintage version with 8 aperture blades (fully open)

    The first is splendid, such a great scream, I'm just missing the sound but I can imagine what it was like.
    The second is nice as well, but I would have preferred them to look at you.

    Three shots of a water polo tournament at the Pompano Beach Aquatic Center. The sun was bright and high in the sky, and the play was excellent. Sony a900, Sony 70-200/2.8G with 1.4x. Photos cropped, and toned down a bit because the colors popped out of the camera. Sorry for the lack of diversity but I am itching to photograph other sports as well. Camera would not fire or focus intermittently during the day. Very frustrating.

    This guy was "mugged" as soon as he went for the ball. His facial expression is real, but I think there was some added drama.

    This happened away from the ball. #7 is the grandson of a guy who was on several Cuban Olympic water polo teams. He is a senior in high school. He was trying to take the guy in the blue cap out of the play. Photo was warmed a bit with a VSCO filter.

    One of the rising stars of south Florida water polo. Reds saturated a bit to liven up the caps and the ball. Blues left alone.

    P, thank you. That young man is able to get farther out of the water higher than most of the other kids his age. I have a bunch of other shots of him but nothing like this shot. The shot was taken in the late afternoon when the sun wasn't so bright and I didn't have to shoot into the sun to get the shot. I was having fits with my camera so I think I was lucky to get that shot. Thanks again.

    For something new - a high school lacrosse game while waiting for my kids at swim practice. Sony a900 and Sony 70-200/2.8G. Shot from the stands - wish I could have been on the sidelines on the field so I could have had a field view, but ...... Yes, I cropped. I always crop because I cannot afford the longer lenses that I want.

    The shot into the sunset was toned down a bit but the orange was close to that color. No external stadium lighting because of fussy and complaining neighbors.

    Re: Fun With Sony _____

    Last Saturday I went to Fort 4 in Mortsel. This Fort was built between 1859 and 1864 as part of the inner defense ring around Antwerp. It actually saw very little fighting action, by the time WW1 started it had become too weak for the shells of that time and after 1 hit it was deserted. During WW2 the Germans used it as a barracks and storage of munition and airplane bombs. The fort didn't have any fixed guns, only moveable 6" guns and 12" mortars. They also had some smaller guns to defend their backside. For the Dutch speakers there is some more information here.

    Main gate


    Look into the reduit

    Re: Fun With Sony _____

    Thank you Pieter...But I think I must give you back full credit for the idea itself...I suspect I subconsciously pinched your concept from your earlier images on this page with the cherry pickers and graffiti artists.
    I like yours in B&W as they have more drama as if they are battling dinosaurs as you say...It's those teeth that make the pictures for me.
    I have to confess I'm not so keen on the distracting rope and flag...Fairly easy to remove in Photoshop if you have it, awkward I suspect if you don't!...Bottom line full marks to you my friend...Cheers Barry

    Re: Fun With Sony _____

    ^^ thanks Barry. I've thought about the rope and flag as well. They'll probably have to go now that you mention they're distracting. Every time I see these shots in the future I'll think "d**n rope and flag". It's strange how you're sometimes blind for deficiencies in your own shots

    I've thought about printing these as a triptych, so I better get my cloning brush out before I do.

    Is that the floodlights from the statue hitting the low clouds?

    I have seen some stunning lightning hit pictures but this is special.

    Nice.

    Re: Fun With Sony _____

    Miami Open Tennis Tournament. Was given four free tickets plus a parking pass for the daytime matches on the 27th. The only catch was that I had to take my 10 yr old and his friends (the parents wanted a bit of alone time). So, between the rain, and 3 ten year old boys who wanted food and to be out of the sun, I was able to squeeze off a few frames of this match. I missed Rafael Nadal's match because the boys wanted to get ice cream and then go home.

    The girl in the black, a Romanian, was seeded third. The girl in the blue top is Czech and she came with her own cheering section (will show the cheering section). The Romanian won the match.

    The photographers pit was 12 rows in front of me. They had their fancy tripods and lenses that could reach NYC from Miami. Sometimes they were in my way so I had to dump those pictures. Man, I would love to be in the pit. I like to think I can do it.

    What was interesting to me is that the photogs in the pit didn't have to deal with the spectators in the photos when the players served, because the back wall is high enough for the ball to be seen against the wall as opposed to my pics that had the spectators in the background.

    Sony a900 with 70-200/2.8G. The colors are pretty much out of the camera. Yes, I cropped. More photos to come, of a men's match.

    Thanks for the love / likes, in advance.

    Sports seems to be your thing Mikal. Nice series. Maybe your place wasn't ideal for all the services, but the 3rd and 4th are great. Quiet background and splendid facial expressions. The cheering session isn't too bad for a big crop, it seems the lady in blue is thinking "what is that guy doing, his lens is way to short to take a good shot of us"
    Well, I think you've proven her wrong.

    Re: Fun With Sony _____

    P, thank you. I have a few more of a top ranked male player that I will probably post later this evening. I like shooting sports and I would like to do it for money, though since I have no idea how to use flash, I could not do a formal environmental portrait of the athletes to save my life.

    I like the shots of the Czech player because she was more photogenic, and I liked her cheering section.

    Sorry for hogging the bandwidth, but more from the tennis match. Andy Murray vs. Donald Young. The match would have been a bit closer had Mr. Young been able to catch a break. Same camera set up, same restrictions (being at the beck and call of 3 fidgety ten year old boys), and same vantage point. A few of Donald Young first. Again, thank you in advance for the likes / love.

    Re: Fun With Sony _____

    I have a similar story to what Vivek posted here. When i was younger I used to dream of travelling and was given a lot of foreign coins by a man that came into my parents store. This is the one I treasured the most even though it isnt a treasure. Taken with the NEX-7 and the Minolta AF 50/2.8 Macro.
