    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    Someone asked me about the Micro Nikkor. I have couple of samples of the 55/3.5 and this one was taken with a not so great (cosmetics) one.

    It makes it very neutral and is better then with the wrong lighting which can cause a lot of nasty reflections.

    I agree - the soft lighting is very nice. Perhaps +1/2EV longer exposure...

    The exposure is fine but I was referring to some of the reflections and the quality of light. I have to work on the modifiers a bit and the background.

    Also, this little guy was on the balcony when I got home. I got a few pictures through the screen and/or blinds but scared him off when going for a better view.

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    Well first day out and at the moment I only have 2 lenses the Zeiss 135 F2 and Leica 19mm R. So a little limited. Anyway I shot these handheld with the A7R. Nothing special just some happy snappy's. Was more after a feel for the camera and i also reset my settings as well. One thing I did notice I want to change is one setting to get to the focus peaking. I was on medium and felt a little too distracting in the bright light, wanted to go to low and pin point a little better. So far I am liking it a lot

    Shot this handheld actually i shot everything handheld. LOL

    Zeiss 135 at F4


    Zeiss 135 wide open at F2


    Zeiss 135 wide open at F2


    Leica 19mm at about F4 or so and yes i am really close


    Leica 19 about F8


    For handheld i did very good but I know from shooting the D800e a tripod would be a slam dunk on detail. This is a 9 out of 10

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    Also i should point out you want one of the best lenses made in 35mm than that Zeiss 135 F2 is it. Do yourself a favor and get one in the nikon, canon mount and buy a adapter for it. I have had almost all of them out there this thing is a freaking laser. It is so much easier to nail focus handheld with focus peaking that alone smokes my Nikons. Frankly I think it is why i completely bailed ship on the Nikons as fast as i did. between focus peaking and the LCD live view Nikon has a lot to learn. Im not waiting for it either, Im on the bandwagon.

    Oh that is not distortion from the lens in that last 19mm shot. That is the way it is built. Weird

    Looks like the Zeiss 35+55+135 and the Leica R 19 is a way to go.. Just like to se the 24-70 Zeiss, an the love to hear more about how the A7 act in real live shooting.

    Are you getting a A7 body ? like to know about it in real live shooting - were you have to work more fast, and with longer lenses ???

    I love that third one. A real keeper, full of mystery, i love the darkness in which the blue people are sunk and the contrasting red poles of light..

    Great picture Mark! Curious to know how much you like/recommend the Samyang 14/2.8 on A7's? They just announced that they will soon come out with a native E-mount version for full frame. Thanks![/QUOTE]
    Very much. I can give it a 4 stars out of 5. I was told one should be sinful not to buy this lens

    The Leica 19 is a amazing lens. Works nice on the A7r. I'm getting the A7 tommorrow as well. This way have both cams for diffrent needs.

    Learning the A7, which just arrived. One with the Contax G 90. I'd love to hit the streets with it, but it's 5 degrees F now, so I'll shoot around the house a bit. - John

    John: A perfect start with your new camera. Knowing your photographic preferences meanwhile quite a bit I'm pretty sure, you'll really like it after getting used to the different but - especially in comparison to the NEX - (IMHO) quite decent handling.

    PS: Particularly hope you'll like the tonal transition for your B&Ws. And again, I'm quite sure, you will (though my reference for these assumptions is the A7R, that I use since a few weeks - but, I suppose, both versions aren't different in that regard).

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    I own the 21, 28, 35, 45 & 90 Contax G lenses. I would consider buying an A7 or A7r but only if I knew that it would work with these lenses. Could anyone here with hands-on experience give me a quick summary of what works and what doesn't? It would be greatly appreciated.

    Mike, the portrait four posts above is with the G 90. I just got the camera and have not done any analysis on the lens, but wanted to point that out as one example. I've read that the 90 is excellent on it.

    From what I've read and seen, the 45 is fine as well, while the 21 and the 28 are not. Don't know about the 35. This all refers to the A7R - don't remember the results with the A7.

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    I heard from a friend that it is very difficult make photos in Amsterdam central station because it is so dark.

    Almost near the start of the "light festival" in Amsterdam (Waterlooplein).

    I have >100 pics from the Amsterdam light festival but I will share this series, albeit pictured in utter darkness and under UV ("black") light. The 3 frames were in the shot in the order shown.

    A cautionary note to anyone planning to visit this: Wear a safety goggles with good UV cut properties! The artist has put a couple of high pressure mercury UV lamps that blast away enormous amount of dangerous UV! I did not see any warning signs there!

    Wow, that's wonderful. I didn't know the G90 could do this, and I have one! But I'm only now getting to use it on full-frame.

    I have the same lenses. The 21 and 28 do not work well with my A7R (corner/edge smearing), but the 35 and 45 planars are fine as is the 90 sonnar.
