    Sony A7R, Canon 50/0.95, f/0.95, ISO800, 1/40s, Hand held

    The wafer thin plane of focus is sharp. I can do this at ~ 1/15s with the Leica MM. So, that is all the difference is to the loud shutter, AFAIC.

    Loud shutter did not bother me in store today and I actually kind of like it. My family is kiddingly called the loud family. Must be the Italian , Greek and Irish blood in the family. Noise is good. Lol

    I also meant the shutter vibration some think lead to unsharp images. I shot about 8 frames (way too boring!) to see if I am consistent. I am satisfied with what I see.

    New to GetDPI and it looks like a very nice place to be. A first image post with the A7. Had it for two weeks now and really enjoy it.

    Zeiss Contax 35/1.4 MMJ. Not sure what the site does with large images. So I'll just have to post and see

    Everybody: Thanks for the likes!
    Hermann: Thank you sir. Great trip. I'm looking forward to posting more over the holidays.
    Steve: Nice to see us with the same camera again! Family's great. Hope everything is well with you.
    Jono: Very perceptive observation. Marleigh obviously didn't see me take that shot. It was at 70mm. More to come, but, I'm a bit slow.

    Cheers, Matt

    A few more with the FE 55/1.8:









    This one had some motion blur (1/60 and freezing cold).
    First time i tried the motion blur filter in PS CC and to my surprise it worked quite well as you can see at 100%. You can print that pic 13x19+ or even A2 with good results.

    Work hasn't let me get out of the house yet with the A7R. No worthy shots to show, but here's a glimpse into the morning time in my home. Both taken with 50/0.95 Noctilux wide open.

    Thank you. I like the colors from the Sony sensor.

    The 90 is great with the A7r in that it has no corner issues that I can see. More generally, a very sharp and thoroughly modern lens. That may or may not be what you want. Works for me, as long as I am very careful of technique.

    Which adapter are you using? I also have the 90 Cron and am very pleased with it but am getting very slight corner vignetting. Am using Voightlander adapter.

    Yeah baby, this is what it is all about!

    Just started using mine ... bunch of around the house junk, but what fun! Trying the ZA lenses first then I'll get to the M-50/0.95 and 75/2AA. Wahoo!

    Focus is on the near eye. Modest noise reduction in LR.

    Victor, I see no issues at f2 using the Novoflex. I have not made any formal tests, though.

    This is focused on the vines at f2. Raws straight out of camera. Shutter is 1/25 so some motion blur is present. 100% crop is extreme top left corner.

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    Shoot a CC or light solid color wall. I don't think there is any difference between our two adapters..... As long as they are flat and the correct thickness to reach infinity they should be the same. Vignetting is no big deal but was just curious if you see it. Odd that its with my 90.

    Victor, we should probably put this in a different thread, but I am not bothered by minor vignetting. I am bothered by MTF degradation in the corners. Some is always there, but the 90 seems relatively immune. I will try a flat field but that does not show the MTF problem. Need to put a resolution target in the corners for that. I believe Ron does that sort of thing.

    Yes it is available in Germany know.
    Bought it @ the Sony Online Store.
    You won't regret buying that lens, as i don't.
    Its lovely in every respect: Fits and looks good with the A7's - no, it is not to big (the hood is very big though) - Handels smooth, light, AF is very good and it is SHARP from corner to corner. Its the best 50 i tried (Leica M+R, Canon ...) on the 7.
    I cite "Highly Recommended"

    I'm not familiar with the adapter you are referring to. My Voightlander is the VM mount which is available from various dealers.

    One of my test shots with a newly acquired flash. The focus is not where I wanted it.


    Sony A7R, M Rokkor 90/4, f/5.6, 1/160s, ISO64, One soft box

    I had to reduce a few things to avoid "crunchy" areas that shows up when down sizing.

    I think the helicoid adapter (officially known as VM-E Close Focus Adapter) just started shipping this week. See here:

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    Yes, Ron, you are right. This is interesting, because Cosina published that the VM-E would be better for FF E-mount than their regular VM. And Hawks' published pretty much the same about a new iteration of their adapter, while Rayqual indicated that their adpter was not suitable for FF. This suggests that, on APS-C, the internal diametre of an adapater didn't matter much, but that, on FF, the tight E-mount requires as large a diametre as specified and no less. Else, corner performance goes down the drain...

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    My dealer (CameraQuest) has that adapter in stock ($309.00) vs ($179.00) for the M. By corner performance I assume you are talking about vignetting. Focus performance is more a factor of the lens itself. The small amount of vignetting that I see with my 90mm is really small.... only noticeable on certain images. It is, though, different than other types of vignetting I'm used to - almost like abrupt steps. Still, not a big deal.

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    I think the culprit causing the vignetting with the VM Adapter is what I would describe as the baffle attached on the inside of the E-mount. My Voigtländer Nikon F adapter had the same exact baffle, and I removed it. The same can certainly be done with the VM Adapter, but be aware that the rear mount has to be removed to do so. The rear mount is likely shimmed with very thin washers that *must* go back exactly where they came from. Also, the newly exposed and highly reflective inside surface of the rear mount needs to be painted with matte black paint (a paint marker will work well for this). It's do-able, and IMO worth it, because it is a very nicely made piece of kit.

    Talking about bars, this is the most versatile beer bar in Amsterdam called "Wildeman".
    Beers from all over the world that's why you see a lot of English folks for the English beers.
    I go there for the supurb Belgium (monastry) beers.
    The fellow looking at me is English.

The rear mount is likely shimmed with very thin washers that *must* go back exactly where they came from. Also, the newly exposed and highly reflective inside surface of the rear mount needs to be painted with matte black paint (a paint marker will work well for this). It's do-able, and IMO worth it, because it is a very nicely made piece of kit.
    I'm very mechanically inclined but I don't think I'm going to take my adapter apart. I've done all sorts of tuning for my Alpa which is another long story. Tech cameras - all of them - need to be fine tuned so I've had lots of practice in this area. Anyway, would be interested to hear from you if your Novoflex has 'any' vignetting.

    Haven't noticed any when shooting with the APO-Telyt-M 135, and that probably means there's nothing to worry about (deeply recessed rear element).

    Guys, why not discuss this adapter business in the adapter thread? Do you use the camea to capture photos, do share them.

    May be even diglloyd has some tests on them, you probably should check.

    I agree this should be in another thread. Maybe you should subscribe to Diglloyd??? Might learn something - like what not to purchase or if you should test something for yourself.
