    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    OK, one more brick wall testing, well, sort of ...


    Munich, Neue Pinakothek


    A7R, Canon FDn 24mm f/2.8, @ f/6.3, 1/100s, ISO 6400, handheld, mixed lighting, uncorrected on purpose

    BTW: Although in a museum nobody seemed to be upset by the shutter sound, me even less Indeed, so far much fun with the A7R.

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    Congrats all for the new cams and good work!
    Ron, is that at Leica R 28 vII? In any case, beautiful shot!
    Nice work, contrelamontre!
    I should be getting mine tomorrow, and then I need decent weather, or else I will pull out my Elmarit R 60 Makro. Should be sharp enough, methinks...

    Thanks for the kind words, Philippe! Much appreciated. Yes, the lens is vII (E55). It can be a tricky piece of glass due to fairly pronounced field curvature, but it works very well for subjects such as the above.

    Thanks, Vivek! It looks like it can, although I've set Creative Style to B&W and the weather has been so dreary here that one might think the world has turned monochrome…

    Edit: to avoid misinterpretation, I use the B&W Creative Style merely as a focusing aid (combined with maximum sharpening and peaking in red). I only shoot RAW, hence these settings have no effect on the capture. The image above was converted from RAW to DNG with Adobe DNG Converter 8.3 RC, and then developed in LR4.4.

    Although even better responsiveness would be nice, the A7(R) is by no means a bad camera for street photography, on the contrary ..

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    Some great shots coming from you guys. I've had mine for a few days, as well as the 35mm. I hope to try some of my "other" lenses on it at some stage.
    One question. I have LR4.something, and CS4. the Adobe DNG Convertor, will it work with these? It was always my understanding that it only worked with CS6, and LR5, is this correct?
    If so, how does one "open" the RAW files? I will probably update to LR5, but right now I want to work with what I have.

    Gary, Download this (5.3RC) for your A7/7R files: Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5.3 Release Candidate | photo management software beta - Adobe Labs

    It will work for 30 days then you will have to upgrade from your LR 4 something.

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    After re-reviewing this thread, I must say I am mightily impressed with the aggregate of all the images, and how natural they look and feel. Congratulations to everyone for some excellent images.

    That so much has been achieved in so little time bodes well for what Sony has presented us. Usually there is an initial "struggle time" with a new camera and new sensor. That so many different individuals, shooting different subjects, in different conditions, using different lenses, have already revealed such potential is quite remarkable IMHO

    Looks like there is no where to go but up as the camera falls into more and more hands.

    All I can say is ... where the heck is mine B&H! I feel like a kid at Christmas ... something that doesn't happen very often anymore, being a jaded and skeptical buyer of a lot of gear over the past.

    Looking at the image qualities of your collective work, I am honestly beginning to believe that this is the companion to my big gun Leica S2 more than other choices I am currently struggling with ... er, testing.

    Happy "Sony Snaps" to all,

    Mr.Steen Bondo kindly gifted me with a E to Nikon F adapter and I put that to use with the 20/3.5 AiS Nikkor.

    Poor light shot.

    Even less light. No hood was used (I don't have the proper hood for it) and handheld snap.

    Better light and more time to spend with the A7R today. Below a sample taken with the C/Y Sonnar 2.8/85.

    Edit: mentally comparing this image to similar scenes photographed with the same lens on the D800E, I'd say that the A7R delivers more detailed images. For a definitive answer, a side-by-side comparison is of course needed (which I can't do at this point, since I don't have the D800E with me).

    Yes, there are and it was - but I could not resist the incredible old crane

    Edit: I find myself using the EVF much more often with the A7R than I ever have with the NEX-6 and 7. I have yet to compare them side-by-side, but it seems to me the A7R's is much more pleasant to use.

    Ron,

    Excellent crane series. Did you use nik (Google) Silver Efex to convert to b&w or some other software? And how did you accomplish your framing with EXIF? I've written some PS scripts to do that and am always interested in what others use.

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    Many thanks for the kind words, Joe! I exclusively use LR for my B&W conversions. I love how drastically you can adjust well-focused images taken with modern sensors after converting to B&W. I inject the lens-specific EXIF info into my RAW files, (ab)using the jb CaptureTime to EXIF plugin, but LensTagger is probably the better option these days. Both of them use Exiftool. For rendering the EXIF on export, I use the LR/Mogrify 2 plugin. Takes a bit of fiddling to get everything just so, but works flawlessly thereafter.

    Well done, regardless of the tool used.

    I use LR/Mogrify 2 as well as my own scripts, depending upon the "look" I'm after. There's a user's guide of sorts for LR/Mogrify 2 on my website, that's based on my own experience using the plugin.

    Thanks for the response to my questions.

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    A few to share:

    From the 35 2.8 FE







    From the 35 Lux ASPH





    Some impression - Camera is AMAZING!! Fits my hand like a glove! Nice grip. Manual focusing took a bit of time to get used to - but once mastered, it is easy to master (2 quick press of the C1 button). I wish they implemented it with one press like when manually focusing on the native FE lenses. 35 FE is a sharp, light lens that compliments the A7 (AF is not the most accurate in low light). 35 Lux ASPH shines - amazingly sharp even wide open, a bit of vignette and color cast in the edges - nothing that bothers me. Apple Aperture needs to catch up and do RAW support ASAP!

    Some images.
    All with the FE 2,8/35 mm.
    Fabulous images, Arne! They seem to capture the mood very well - beautifully crisp and chilly.

    Yup. The 20/3.5 AiS used here was the cheaper 20mm lens in the old Nikon line up. Around 1m distance this has quite a bit of barrel distortion. I have Rolleinar 21/4 that is much flatter (waiting for an adapter) but the Nikkor is very resistant to flare. I think the 14-24/2.8 zoom would be fantastic (big beast). Unfortunately, I do not have that anymore.

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    Thanks Vivek. Yes its gone the 14-24, seems to be too bulky, too. But IF I go for Sony it will be the A7, while the comparometer show very litle difference in sharpnes, AA-filter or not:
    Imaging Resource "Comparometer" ™ Digital Camera Image Comparison Page
    (I always look at still-life 400 the bottle with the Hellas lady), the A7 seems to have the same crispness like the 7R, but I don't need those HUGE files, while coming home from an Building assignment with the risk of perhaps 100-1000 Pictures(in Jpegs and Raw), that’s way too much..
    and then I would go with my somewhat underrated Nikkor 20/2.8D, but its still sharper than many zooms, buy the Samyang 14mm, later Sigma 35 Art etc.
    But even though the Sony has more crispness than Nikon, the biggest issue might be focusing, and being on building-assignments(where just details are important to catch) where it is nice that everything is functioning fast and unproblematic, and I'm not good at focus-peaking and looking at screens (but perhaps zone-focusing and guessing would go, but..)…that could create mental problems...so a D610 is still silently tapping on my shoulder

    Yarrums: Thank you for your kind words and the encouragement! Really very much appreciated. And welcome to GetDPIforums!

    Michiel: Thanks a lot. And I'm quite confident, you'll enjoy that humble lens as well. For my puposes the 24mm FL ist by far the most important and so I really enjoy the A7R with the little FDn instead of carrying my D 800 and the 24mm, f/1.4, if and when the speed of the latter isn't mandatory.

    And, of course, thanks for all the "likes" as well!

    I can happily report that the old Micro Nikkor 55/3.5 is just superb on the A7R. No Nikon nut should be without one!

    Michiel, the first of your two Dutch landscapes is a pure delight! And your APO Telyt makes me green with jealousy, even though I could never use such a long lens.
