    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    Thank you Philber!

    Why not use a longer lens once in a while, it is so nice for layered landscapes?

    I tryed to use my 90mm R Elmarit and it suddenly does not focus anymore.
    It is such a lovely lens, everything works, turns well but no way i get anything in focus using the same adapter!

    That's a shame! Perhaps the focus driving lever has broken off. Does anything rattle when you shake the lens?

    No, nothing rattles, everything looks and feels fine. I did not use it for at least half a year. It was fine then. I will have it checked.

    Michiel, I know someone closeby who is really good at the grease job. Perhaps you know him too.

    Hi Michiel,

    a few remarks to you recent postings:

    Fantastic!

    The ones from Brugge as well. A city i really love and the Dutch Landscapes remind me how long i have not been to Holland. That flat landscapes are just beautiful.

    I own myself the 180/3.4 R and always thought it is one of the best lenses i ever owned. Used it occasionally on the NEX 7 with exceptional results but this combination is not in harmony. It will be certainly better with the A7. Did some first tests.

    I love landscapes with long lenses, though i did not take the long ones to go out recently. They seemed to be to heavy and to big - a mistake.
    You did not use a tripod,did't you?

    Best regards from Heidelberg, Germany

    Werner

    Ps: We still miss you at the Sigma DPM's Forum. I think the Merrill's still look pretty good compared to the A7's.

    I never quite got the hang of lenses longer than 135mm, and even that was a stretch. Maybe I should try again. I have Contax C/Y 180 f:2.8, and I have an adapter, so I guess it wouldn't cost too much to try again..:-)
    But I have so many things to try when finally I unbox my A7R.

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    One lens that works better than I expected with the 7R is the 10-18mm e-mount zoom in full frame model.

    Seems at least as good as the Leica 18mm with the ability to go wider and image stabilization.

    Michiel's excellent shots with the 3,4/180 Apo-Telyt inspired me to bring out some of my own images with the A7r and this lens.
    Here are a few.

    It will be even better balanced when my battery grip arrives!
    The lens is a bit heavy but not so big actually.

    For these shots I used a tripod. Made some handheld shots as well @ ISO 600. They turned out well but the light was dull.

    I miss the Foveon sensor, but i prefer to work with a viewfinder and different lenses. And now we meet again at this corner of the forum. I expect it to get rather busy!

    Some A7r with Zeiss 50mm Sonnar lens.
    Just purchased the lens yesterday and hope its renowned 'classic' look will balance the A7r sometimes 'digital' look nicely.
    No subtlety here, just some contrasty and saturated good old cars pics ;-)

    Beautiful images Arne. Did you use a tripod? I am looking for an L plate for the A7R, but RRS says won't be available for a few weeks.

    Carl, depending on which lenses you will be using, you may want to consider a collar mounted to a lens adapter instead of an L-plate. The Novoflex ASTAT-NEX fits all their E-mount adapters. I've decided to go this route for the time being.

    Thank you Carl These are a mix, I used a tripod until the camera plate (RRS B6D) worked itself loose... So yes, I'm also waiting impatiently for a dedicated plate.

    Open image, choose Image Tools, then Edit Image. There you'll find a delete option.

    Go to an image. Top right you see "rate image" and "image tools".

    Go to image tools, and click on Edit image.

    Once there you will see

    "To delete this image, check the box to the left and then click the 'Delete This Image' button below"

    Click on the box and then press delete.

    Some people complain that Sony menu structure is difficult.

    If you still have problems, PM me.

    BTW, why not not use [IMG]..[/IMG] when you post your images here?

    Instead of the small pictures you show, it will be a large image.

    Thanks Ron. I'll take a look and see if it works for the lenses I want use on a tripod.

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    An addendum regarding the Novoflex ASAT-NEX: as I have reported in the Adapter Thread, this collar also perfectly fits the Voigtländer F-Adapter (but attaching/detaching is a little fiddly and needs to be done carefully).

    Ingo, Very nice! For whatever reason the attachments (and clicking on them to view large) does not seem to work. I saw the same images elsewhere displayed inline large and they were fine. Keep up the good work!

    Can you provide some pics? Does it mount directly without adapter? How bad does it vignette and at what setting does it become usable to the full frame?

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    See my Flickr page for a set of 50 images I took during a trip to Kyoto last week.


    Canon 50mmf1pt2 on Sony A7-2 by Sushicam, on Flickr
    Canon ltm 50mm f1.2



    CZ Sonnar 50mmf1pt5 on Sony A7-00704 by Sushicam, on Flickr
    Zeiss Sonnar 50mm f1.5



    Canon 35mmf2 on Sony A7-2 by Sushicam, on Flickr
    Canon ltm 35mm f2



    CV 21mmf4 on Sony A7-01108 by Sushicam, on Flickr
    CV 21mm f4


    All images were shot with the Sony A7, and a variety of rangefinder (Canon ltm 35/2, Canon ltm 50/1.2, CZ Sonnar 50/1.5, CV 21/4) and SLR (Contax Zeiss 28/2.8, Contax Zeiss 35-70mm f3.4) lenses. You can identify which lens was used by the file name. Some of the rangefinder lens shot were made using a Kipon adapter ring with built in helicoid to allow for closer focusing.

    Some quick thoughts on the Sony A7: Solid build quality, and it balances very well with rangefinder lenses. I love the customizability of this camera. You can set it up just the way you like it. The default setting to have ISO selected by scrolling the back control dial was not working for me as it kept getting scrolled by accident, however It was an easy fix to reassign that function to a different button.

    The image quality at higher ISOs is very good. You can pretty much set it for auto ISO and not think about it.

    The shutter release is quiet soft/sensitive. It does not have a noticeable half-press/focus feedback resistance like the M9. Took a little getting used to at first, but its transparent to me now.

    The battery life is noticeably worse than the NEX series of cameras. I needed two batteries to get me through a day of shooting, though I never fully discharged the second battery.

    The widest lens I used on this trip was the CV 21mm f4. The magenta edge issue was apparent in some images, but not all. Corner smearing was an issue with the CV 21mm f4.

    The Canon 50mm f1.2 performs very nicely, with better results that I sued to get with an M9. Similarly, the Canon ltm 35mm f2 is a superb performer.

    The Zeiss Sonnar 50mm f1.5 is also a very good performer on the A7. Tons of bokeh wide open, yet still sharp and contrasty in the center. Stopped down to f8 and it is clinically sharp across the frame.

    Contax/Zeiss SLR lenses, while quite large on this camera, perform extremely well. The 35-70mm f3.4 is better than the 28mm f2.8, but not by too wide of a margin.

    Beautiful images.

    Try putting the camera in "airplane mode", selected in the wireless menu. Wi-fi and NFC are power drains, so disable them if you're not using them.

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    Some nice images folks and I am starting to see the potential of the A7R. As a owner of the D800E what I am looking at mostly is the color and color tone of the images. Im sitting it out until I see what C1 can do with these files and if it will smoke my D800e i may just switch this into my high end landscape cam and turn my Nikons into a PR kit. That would take me a lot to do it but will see. I need to wait till 2014 as that would also give me the most tax benefits as well as this year I have actually way too many write offs with medical.

    Ron,

    How would you describe the difference between LCDs on A7R and Nex 7? I love my Nex 7 for waist-level street shooting, so I'm very interested in this feature. Thanks.

    Let me take a look at that when I have the NEX-7 available in a few days. Judging from memory, I'd say the LCDs are very similar, but that of the NEX-7 is wider and can display shooting information along the right edge, which I like. I definitely wouldn't say there's anything wrong with the A7R rear LCD. My statement was referring to the EVF of the A7R being considerably better/more user friendly than that of the NEX-7.

    Edit: perhaps someone else who has both cameras available can share their opinion?

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    My A7r arrives tomorrow! I don't often get excited about "little" cameras, but I'm psyched to see what this thing can do. I would have jumped on the d800 if Nikon made better Tilt/Shifts! Sadly I won't be able to shoot until my MetaBones EOS to NEX arrives.

    My trusty 5d2 has served for years as a backup to my MFD system but I've just never really warmed to the Canon. I will definitely be taking the Sony out with my TS-E glass on architectural assignments to compare with my Arca / IQ260.

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    A slight mod was needed to make the Olympus pen F 100/3.5 to avoid tiny dark corners. Normally, I don't even keep a frame (if I happen to take one) that does not have any people in it. This one is an exception.

    No vignette correction was done.

    Some with the Elmarit M 21 and the Apo-Macro R 100/2.8.

    The 21 PP with LR5.3 flat field plug in.

    What was the slight mod on the Pen F 100 mm? Removing the baffle in the back?
    Have you tried the 150?
    I will be getting the A7r in the new year and have already studied the 38 which you mentioned that you filed down.
    I think that using the pen F's is the biggest surprise with these new cameras.
    Thanks for all your eclectic info

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    Very good post! Exactly what I want to see with this new camera and ... a lens. Probably similar to a Jupiter-8 but sharper, right? That's a sonnar too ... or am I confused?

    I had to look this up to find out what it was exactly ;

    Alfetta GTV.

    Thanks, Paul. I will put all the eclectic info together and post it in a separate thread in due course.

    Gosh, this is what happens whenever I put the camera in airplane mode.

    Elmar 135/4 at f4. First lens I own that shows no corner effects when wide open.

    You want the Sonnar or the Alfetta

    Sorry, can't help with the Jupiter-8, don't know it.
    I would not say the Sonnar is sharp at f1,5. Some sharpness starts to show at f2,0. F5,6 however is very good (rem: also using tech cam so am quite picky on lens resolving power)

    ...you should definitely go for an Alfetta....all this photography stuff is way too much hyped....
    (but perhaps some slimmer tires…they might be sharper...out in the wide open)
