    Hi Ario
    This does look good - maybe Leica made it a bit more tele centric to make their life easier!

    As for other lenses . . . . don't forget the Zeiss Contax lenses - they can be had quite reasonably, and they're right up there in the Leica territory.

    35-70 f4 - lovely lens (and lovely shot as well Ario)


    Lou - thanks for the kind words - I might change my mind when the 24-70 zoom comes out - who knows!

    Just this guy you know

    Thank you!
    Just a simple Pixco adapter available at many Chinese sellers.
    I have many Pixco adapters and they all worked fine on my NEX-7.
    Mostly they are a little passed infinity but that is no problem with the quality peaking on th A7r.

    Thanks, Michiel. It isn't a Canon lens but an Olympus pen F (half frame) lens. Smaller, lighter, closer focusing and better constructed than a few versions of the Summicron M 35mm lens.

    Vivek, I was referring to your post 524 with that big piece of glass, but the Pen F is nice as well.

    I've shot another bunch of images, this time upping the aperture to f/11. Initial ones were shot at f/5.6 (I was concerned about diffraction). The f/11 shots seem to be a lot better with regards sharpness across the whole frame. Perhaps part of it is technique as I'm not used to shooting handheld.

    I can't quite put my finger on what it is that's nagging me, but I think it's something to do with the tonality. The images just seem to be a lot more "digital" than what I've become used to with the IQ180.

    I'll keep on plugging away at it

    Kind regards,

    Gerald.
    For me the sweet spot is f9. No visible gain to my eyes in the corners at f11 or up but just a bit less center resolution than f9. F5,6 has even better resolution at center but with clearly degraded corners.

    When focussed carefully (check center & corners) right & left corners are the same, no alignment issue, good Metabones adapter. Nonetheless I'm not impressed by those corners. But the reason for that is probably the same as yours: having used the IQ180…

    I'm still having issue when pixel peeping, can't find the right settings (too soft vs too much artifacts) but I must say that I'm pleased by the colors and overall look of the Sony files (was a bit worried they could look like the D800 I don't like).

    What's nagging me with this A7r is the impression of using an electronic device that is closer to an iPhone 5 than a film camera.
    However the EVF and absence of mirror, tilting rear LCD, focus aid, compatibility with all sorts of lenses make it a great 'little' digital tech cam for landscape and architecture, at least in theory and this is why I'm using it with the Canon 24mm TS.

    But I'm now wondering if a low pass filter version shouldn't be preferable to get rid of those digital artifacts (in the very fine details only but they're quite important in landscape/architecture).

    Secretly hoping that Capture 1 will solve that soon, Phase One guys do certainly have a huge experience in that matter.

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    What is this? Moire or jpg compression? Anything less than 150% shows this (area in yellow outline). The much larger blinds (red outline) are OK.

    Sony A7R, Olympus OM 85/2, f/8

    This shows while looking through the EVF before capture and in camera after capture and after conversion (LR 5.3 RC).

    Yes, looks like aliasing (in both areas, but much milder in the red one)

    Edit: is this an OOC JPEG? Do you have a RAW file of this image? If so, I suggest converting it with RC 8.3 of Adobe DNG Converter, and then taking a look at the DNG in LR or whatever your favorite RAW processor may be...

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    A quick conversion through SOny IDC, ACR 8.3 RC, LR 5.3 RC (moire brush), etc just brings out the same.

    I have to rephrase my original question, I suppose.

    How to view downsized (not jpeg, even the RAW files/DNG files/16 bit Tiff at this size look the same!

    The problem is what to do with files like this when I want a "small" print?

    You what is so funny about this? The lens used, OM 85/2 (a classic Sonnar clone) was specifically bought for its bokeh (portrait distance).

    The blinds are from the high court building. They do keep it quite clean (I see window washers often).

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    Downsizing in more steps keep things better. All my downsized images for the web are downsized in at least 3 steps, in each step sharpening applied and no sharpening in ACR, it intervenes somehow.(I use an action for that)
    It keeps the files cleaner. I learned that from someone else, of course

    May be that helps. Your 100% detail looks oké, so it must be possible that it remains so.

    (I can send you an action, if you like)

    Vivek, Michiel, This is the best I can do. http://winklers.smugmug.com/KHW/Othe...b_1456x967.jpg

    Interesting. It breaks all the image developing software except the display App Preview.
    So I used IDC, then OUTPUT as TIFF. Preview can read it now.
    Zoom out a bit! Use Grab. Voila.

    If I try to display the reduced jpg on getdpi.com it gets messed up again.
    But you can inspect the jpg on smugmug.

    Vivek, that is an incredible sharp shot of a very fine detail!
    Congrats! Your lens is a winner on your A7R!
    You just need to print large!

    Here is a smaller version.

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    As wonderful as it is, I've decided to return the Zeiss 35mm FE in favor of the Minolta AF 35/2 A-mount and the M-Rokkor 40/2 combination.

    The 35/2 will give equal performance (based on my tests), is an extra stop faster and will AF quicker in low light with the LAEA-4. The M-Rokkor is tiny and dripping with character and just a blast to use. I wanted the A7 to be a replacement for my RX1 and with the Rokkor it almost feels smaller.

    Some test snaps with the M-Rokkor - we finally got a little sun this afternoon.

    Did you order your camera overseas or get the first US copy? Thanks for posting.
    Hi Lou, sadly it was just borrowed from a friend who had received an overseas copy. IT's a great camera on many levels, detail in gobs. Probably will work best with its own lenses, but does sufficiently well with M lenses as well....

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    Michiel, on downsize and sharpening, you might heed Jeff Schewe for an experiment...he opines that capture sharpening is key, if you are not to 'leave IQ on the table'. Once done, convert and downsize in 50% with no sharpening along the way, this will go close to preserving the image competely. You can add a duplicate layer on final size image and use a little Smart Sharpen and vary opacity by inspection. Not many images need it, but tastes vary. Tim Ashley who may post here has some good starter settings for the sensor off the D800e, I believe. All top lenses are similar.

    On the 'moire' I would not rule out anything...but downsize technique will effect patterned data at times and jpegs are a bastard. I would steer well clear of IDC and await the final release of ACR/LR for the cameras. Very few users have had much obvious moire even when looking hard for it - you know, some people see it as a challenge worth pursuing in earnest.

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    On moire, sharpening and sizing:

    This is Juju and voodoo territory and here is mine, though I must say that I think IDC is crud and am therefore stuck with LR RC5.3 until Adobe gets this right, and have not tried the 'via DNG' route'. I am also a Schewe acolyte and have watched a lot of his videos and read at least one of his book.

    * Sharpen to around 60/0.7/70/20 immediately after capture, and do whatever other PP you want but not moire brush
    * Downsize in increments ONLY of 50% or 25% etc (i.e. half the length, quarter the length) and export to TIFF
    * re-import the TIFF and use your moire brush then as you export to whatever JPEG size (same as or smaller than the tiff dimensions but otherwise freeform) add your desired output sharpening
    * Be aware that some moire is caused by interactions between the subject's image lines and the pixel lines of the display itself and will therefore appear and disappear as you re-size on screen. Ain't nothing you can do about that, unless you make a good old fashioned print! But it does explain why some people see it and others don't...

    Interesting. It breaks all the image developing software except the display App Preview.
    So I used IDC, then OUTPUT as TIFF. Preview can read it now.
    Zoom out a bit! Use Grab. Voila.

    If I try to display the reduced jpg on getdpi.com it gets messed up again.
    But you can inspect the jpg on smugmug.

    Vivek, that is an incredible sharp shot of a very fine detail!
    Congrats! Your lens is a winner on your A7R!
    You just need to print large!

    Here is a smaller version.


    Well done K-H

    Thank you Tim for this inside!

    This is exactly what I was thinking when I wake up this morning (one of my rare clear moments ). I remembered wearing the wrong jacket appearing on television wearing a blocked colber. Terrible!

    And that you probably would not see it on print.

    BTW In the case of printing; do you use the same order of sharpening?
    I have been making a photobook lately and left the sharpening on default in ACR and did the sharpening all in the exported TIFF file in PS using the Focal Blade plug in. Also for big prints actually. Works out really well.
    What do you think?

You can add a duplicate layer on final size image and use a little Smart Sharpen and vary opacity by inspection. Not many images need it, but tastes vary. Tim Ashley who may post here has some good starter settings for the sensor off the D800e, I believe. All top lenses are similar.

    On the 'moire' I would not rule out anything...but downsize technique will effect patterned data at times and jpegs are a bastard. I would steer well clear of IDC and await the final release of ACR/LR for the cameras. Very few users have had much obvious moire even when looking hard for it - you know, some people see it as a challenge worth pursuing in earnest.
    Thank you Philip.

    I will order Jack Shewe's book - The Digital Print: Preparing Images in Lightroom and Photoshop for Printing -, thanks for the tip!

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    Michiel,

    For output sharpening, I personally tend to add no more when exporting to JPEG for web viewing because even though it can look nice, some people always start saying it is over-sharpened: the problem is that you are not certifying the physical output size even if you choose specific pixel dimensions because monitor resolutions now vary between 72 and 220 PPI, even though most are still around 100. Ming Thein adds a lot of sharpening and clarity as far as I can tell, and the images on his site always have tremendous presence but he is a braver man than I am.

    For output, LR is quite good but you have to test it quite specifically for the actual size and paper you are printing to. I print nearly all my work onto Hahnemuhle German Etching and my default print size if around 21" on the long side. For that I usually use "Standard and Matte". But for the occasional much larger print on Canson Platine or similar, I make tests because it seems to vary per image quite a bit. A book would be tough because there are so many different kinds of image so I would guess, and go for Glossy Standard but for some images I might go for Glossy Low. But I have to say that whenever images of mine appear in books commercially, I provide the image as processed with my usual input sharpening and leave the output sharpening to the printer, and have yet to see a disaster...

    Hi Matt
    I think it is - I'm not in the habit of returning things unless they're broken, and this isn't broken. Just not for me.

    No regrets though - something of a liberation

    all the best

    Multiple examples posted in this thread!

    Here is one more for a good measure.

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    Got my A7 today. Is there some problem in Camere because focus magnification does not work in manual lenses. Release w/o lens setup is On. Camera gives erros message "lens is not attached ....a. s.o) I tried with several adapters. Should I sent it to sercive. My phone was already in sercive five weeks so this is not so unfamiliar.

    You are pushing the wrong button!

    It is the C1 button. First press shows the rectangle and another press magnification at 7.2X and yet another push, 14.4X.

    The C2 button you have been pushing (like a NEX) is to magnify the images captured.

    (The camera manual though bulky is actually useful)

    Okay. Why not?
    My guess: 50 Summilux.

    Vivek! Many thanks for your advice.
    So works magnification. My wife often criticizes me for not reading manuals after getting new toys. She is right, as usual.

    I don't know what lens this is, but it sure doesn't look like Summilux to me...
