    Thanks, Vivek! I've been pleasantly surprised not only by how well all the Leica lenses seem to perform on the A7R but also by how easy it is to manually focus fast lenses wide open on the A7R even without peaking or magnification. There's a little shimmer (?aliasing) - similar to peaking but more subtle and to me more accurate - that shows where the focus lies.

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    I have had the A7r a couple of hours now have been out testing my lenses.

    The Zeiss Biogon ZM 35/2 shows really poor purple corners. Strangely, the wider Zeiss Biogon ZM 25/2.8 is clear edge to edge and very sharp. The images are magnificent from this lens.

    At the same time I tested the Leica 50mm Lux ASPH and this works superbly on my cheapo Fotodiox adapter. No edge smearing across the F range from 1.4 to 16. Very nice lens for the A7r.

    The 90 Elmarit-M is absolutely superb, Sharp from edge to edge and no smearing.

    Shame about the Zeiss 35, but 3 out of 4 ain't bad.

    Thanks for those comments. I was thinking about buying back the ZM 2/35 Biogon, and you give me pause. Are the corners poor only because they are purple or also because of smearing? I agree that the 50mm Summilux M ASPH is very nice on this camera.

    Amin. The edges are sharp, without smearing, but strongly coloured. I'll be selling mine as I don't have the inclination to use Cornerfix or to use other methods.

    Before you put it for sale, consider the Sony app for such corrections in the camera (Sony PlayMemories ? discover new ways to enhance and enjoy photos and videos) that allows you use do all the stuff without cornerfix. You are going to avail of that app anyway. Give it a try.

    Nice attempt at a juxtaposition of new and old architecture and the corresponding "cue state". FWIW: Unfortunately the strange light tail of the boat on the Amstel (?) and to a lesser degree the prominent positioning of the bus are killing it IMHO.

    While I do not agree with you entirely (the bus, I agree with), I appreciate your comments on the photos, in general. I think the "whoosh" from the boat is an integral part of the picture.

    Thank you for the comment Hermann!
    The curved tail of the boat correspondences well with the curved line of the bridge, I think. So I disagree

    Thanks. For £7.99 it's worth the effort. Although I have no idea of how to make it work.

    It's your picture, so you're the last resort anyway and no need for justification.
    I would even share your opinion, if the motion blur of the boat/the lights of the boat would allow the viewer to recognize the streaks as a boat (i.e. exposure time a bit faster). But as Wolfgang's request (post #1345) illustrates as well, that's apparently not the case, but on the contrary the phenomenon leaves the viewer perplexed.
    But, then again, see my preliminary phrase.

    The comment, plain and simple, proves my interest in the picture resp. the content of the picture (i.e. the juxtaposition of old and new architecture). The critique is meant in a solidary and constructive way. In detail vide supra my answer to the particular point of the light streaks.

    Hi Roy, Not nit picking. Hermann, if I understand his thinking correctly, goes by text book compositions (not meant in the slightest way to lower the value!) that has its own great significance. Mr. Schierbeek is an artist and is quite loose about anything (be it technical or art) and there is the difference.

    As the saying goes, "exceptions conform to the rules".

    To me both are educational.

    Have a great one!

    Vivek: Good post! No, not at all nitpicking. Coming from a scientific background (day job), but involved in cultural/artistic circles as well, it's business as usual for me always struggling for the best. This implies crititique necessarily and it's part of the fun of it. And as always: some take it easy and are quite eager for critical suggestions and others are not: each to their own. Critique always only can be an offer.

    And BTW: No interest in text books from my side.

    Quick portrait of one of my ex students sister who came with her for a visit. A7r @ iso 8000, Super Takumar 50mm @f2. The coatings on the lens make for awful colour but glorious B&W.

    Hello Roy,

    There is no problem on commenting on the composition/content of images because I know people on this forum are serious and civilized and most of all equiped with a healthy dose of humor.
    I am used to talk about content more so then on techics but I like both.
    I don“t feel offended (quickly) only when it is unreasonable, which it wasn“t at all.
    So, I am good and happy and wish you a merry christmas as well and I hope it is not to cold up there

    Test time. Some cheaper Zeiss lenses, the old C/Y (leitax converted) with Novoflex NIK-NEX. A7r and C1 for raw converting (best in my personal test).

    First 28 mm f/2.8 at f/5.6 or 8 (forgot it, but they same same IQ)



    Then the 50 f/1.4 at f/8

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    From my morning walk with the A7r and the Leica Elmarit-R 24 f/2.8 Leitax A-mount. I am using the LA-E4 adapter, and having some trouble when this lens is mounted. Sometimes the menu button is diabled, and sometimes C1 does not bring up the magnifier. Anyone else encountered this?

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    Cindy, I'm not using A-mount but F-mount Leitax bayonets, and have had faulty Dandelion chips causing my D800E to do similar things. Is the A-mount on your R24 chipped? If so, you may want to try covering the contacts with tape to see if that helps...

    Hi Cindy, are you using the battery grip ?
    I'm having the same issue with the C1 button and, although I'm not completely sure yet, blame it to my hand pressing against the shutter button of the grip and so activating focus/exposure but without firing.
    I think the same is true for the Menu button.

    Just try pressing the shutter button half way and then one of the other buttons.
    Already declared this grip as a flawed design ...

    Kind regards.
    Bart ...

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    A7 and 55 mm FE. The lens is quite nice....not quite as snappy in AF as the 35 FE, but no slouch....rendering is lovely and very "sonnar"....

    Thanks, Ron. I'll check that out, but if I remember right, I did not chip the 24mm.

    I think the same is true for the Menu button.

    Just try pressing the shutter button half way and then one of the other buttons.
    Already declared this grip as a flawed design ...

    Kind regards.
    Thank you, Bart. That is the problem! You are right about flawed design.

    I've also noted C1 sometimes not magnifying.

    Like you I have the grip attached but don't feel that it's particularly flawed. It adds a lovely balance to the camera, especially with a front weighted lens, as well as giving extra battery life. For me the big bonus, and it may sound pathetic, but, it encourages the camera to sit perfectly flat against my body.

    Although I quite enjoy the grip it is way too overpriced for what it is. That's Sony's way with accessories. It would be churlish to complain too much though as the A7r is a lot of camera for a reasonable price.

    That is what Sony count on. All their accessories are way over priced. Try some flash accessories, connectors and such, you would find the (overpriced) grip a bargain!

    Re: Fun with the NEX cameras....

    No posts since September, what would have taken out the fun of shooting with a NEX?

    I'm still having fun. Here's a few with a NEX6 and a Leica M Summicron 50/2 DR (all @ f2.8, rest of the exif in the files)

    The purple in this image is a real purple, and not vignetting. We were seconds away from a huge downpour. A7r and 50 Lux ASPH.

    I think my problem is that I had the LA-E4 and a Leica Elmarit-R 24mm lens on the camera. My hand, needing to balance that weight, was holding tight. My other hand was holding the lens. The shutter button on my grip sticks out, so it was being depressed by my grip on the camera. Perhaps some kind of a ring added around my shutter button would rectify the situation. I do like the ergonomic of having the grip when I use the LA=E4 and heavy lenses.

    Looks like you have a great sample of this lens!

    Lovely!

    Isn't it an on/off switch on the grip to avoid that ?

    Yes, turning the switch to off solves the problem. I don't like the extra step of turning the switch to on, before taking a photo in portrait mode. I will live with this solution for now. I may try a mod so that I don't have to use the switch.

    I know.
    When you try to purchase the camera or lens on-line, the sales person immediately tells you - "You really need to purchase the grip and flash in order to get the most out of this camera".

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    Overpriced accessories - is same same fx at Nikon. I short the chines companies will supply us with pretty good and cheaper alternatives..

    Must say i love this camera, so easy to use with MF lenses.. and love the files, haven't printed yet, hope they stand up to the IQ i have seen until now.

    More C/Y Zeiss first 50 mm (1.4) handhold - and then 28 mm (2.8) tripod.
