    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    You guys are much too serious for a Friday afternoon.

    Take a look at these three shots and tell me: is it my A7R or is it me ...

    It must be you, Bart. The camera is way too small to scare everyone around you…

    Not as bad as on your example and they are removed, when there is some corner sharpness very easy and complete in LR.

    Guy:
    Would love the Leica 19 R but that lens is still incredible expensive and much bulkier and heavier than the Zeiss.
    Absolute the 19mm is a gem but your 18m is right up there with it. Both lenses you may find in the very and I mean very extreme corners a little degradation. Here is the good news most images it would not matter anyway. We get a little too crazy sometimes. Enjoy that lens it has a nice punch to it and on this sensor looks really good. Oh and we love that your testing its limits, thats why we are here to share and learn. Might want to look into PT lens plug in for Photoshop so you can fix your distortion in one click. It cleans up nice. I had them develop one for my 19mm and its perfect. The 19mm is my retirement lens. LOL

    Seriously all this Sony Ar7 stuff is helping me make smart decisions as well. Im looking at the look and I like it. I get my adapter today so Ill be right there with everyone soon. In all honesty I am really good at testing but as you know I owned just about everything out there so i do have a good eye at figuring these things out. Thats not a plug for me but I just have a good eye for this stuff.

The beauty of this lens is its very small size on the adapter to camera body...... I seem too like very small sized lenses and had selected the leitz Summicron 40mm F:2 from the CL series, and the Zeiss 5cm Tessar F:2.8 aluminium 1946 from old exakta as the two "BEST of Choices". I tested countless 50mm F:1.4 lenses from legacy days and for the most part they were outstanding. However older BRASS rangefinder lenses on adapters are heavy in weight. 35mm SLR lenses are big and nose heavy also, even the pancakes stick out there. even at 14x the image quality of a legacy lens on the Sony A7r is simply outstanding.

    Hi Matt
    That's great - thank you also for leaving the exif intact - looks like that zoom does well at the corners - even at f3. 5 and 28mm. What do you feel about it?

    all the best

    Based on some of the theses out there I thought the Leica lens behaves like a coke bottle on the A7R.

    Nice one Amin!

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    After dragging a D800 over the Himalayas, it was obvious to join the A7 (s) hood. Got it late today the day, and no lenses yet, so an adapter and test of a C / Y Zeiss 50 1.4. It's low on the model front to , but a test is a test. I burned it a bit. to stress it.

    (sorry for the pic, but had fun)

    The next step was raw conversion. Got disappointing result with CameraRaw - then I tried to first run file through the IDC and then tiff with Raw filter in photoshop - but little agonizing process. What do you do?

    The RAW conversion still is nebulous, it appears. I have been using quick LR conversions. Not settled yet on anything. I would love to hear how you get on with yours. The Himalayas shots were nothing but stunning!

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    By the time I got the hang of Nikon NX2, I quit using Nikon. It was never easy for me to deal with the conversion softwares. So, I understand what you mean. I am willing to give C1 a try one of these days but hope the LR will get better in the coming days.

    Leica and fuzzy corners.

    Sony A7R, M Rokkor 40/2 ~f/5.6, Hawk Peng helicoid adapter V2. The cheaper adapter I have (that does not have this problem)was on a different lens. But for the Leica shot ( infinity), no fuzz related stuff bothers for me.

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    Hermann: Thanks. I been looking at your great architectural photos.

    Jono: It was the only Sony FE lens that I had until last Friday. I'm not complaining, it was a great lens to have on the trip. Very versatile and good IQ at both ends (IMHO). My only issue would be with the f/3.5 for night shooting. The sensor and the OSS helps that, somewhat. I'd get it, even if it wasn't the "kit" lens. However, I still have the Zeiss 24-70 on order.

    A few more at the Shard. The last one is my wife at the open top viewing level. A7 with Sony 28-70mm.









    Cheers, Matt

    Hi Matt
    Thanks for that. Unlike some around here I like zooms for casual shooting, that zoom does look decent. I've got plenty of alternatives for night shooting (even an old Sony f1.4 50 which never got sold.

    That top platform on the Shard looks scary!

    Just this guy you know

    Jono: I'm partial to a good zoom at times, also. It was blowing a bit at the top of the Shard! Fun experience, though.

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    Nice shots Matt. I suspected that the kit zoom would be decent for the price. You're proving me to be correct in that preliminary judgement. I've been debating the ZFE 24-70 and I may just end up getting rid of my 70-200/2.8 for the E-mount 70-200/4 when it comes out. I really don't want to mess with adapters where I can afford not to.
