    Nice series, Vivek! With this kind of weather!
    Of course, i like that empty street as well! Was it handheld?
    Next time you come to an event In Amsterdam, let me know!

    This time I was not in town anyway

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    Thanks, Michiel. Will do.

    Yesterday was a meeting with an old friend of my wife (oddly, her home base is close to where we live now but she is an Amsterdam resident now).

    There were lots of volunteers posted along the long route for the light festival.

    Like this girl, in this weather.

    Thanks for your kind words, Hermann. Honestly, I had resolved to not buy another camera with an AA filter, but was a bit scared off of the a7R by all the talk of optimum shooting requirements and shutter lag. I tend to shoot fast and loose. But I expect if I don't try it, I will always be wondering, what if? I'm looking for a system I can keep for many years, so I may try this for a week or so and then try the R version.

    Once again, trapped indoors by a -3°F temperature. Tomorrow is supposed to be a balmy 28°, so I'll likely venture out with the new A7.

    How a digital camera handles the upper gray tonal range is very important to my way of shooting, and I like what I'm seeing from the A7 so far.

    John: Again a very nice and calm picture.

    And glad to hear, that my assumption regarding the tonal transition in B&W wasn't that wrong after all and you're pleased so far.

    BTW: The portraiture you posted yesterday conveys an intuitive association with "The Picture of Dorian Gray" to me (but, please, don't tell him), and I prize Oscar Wilde's work highly. It blends in perfectly with the other outstanding portraitures you've compiled in your gallery.

    A nice mode to be in, Michiel. Really like your second one.

    Could someone please tell me when, with an EFC, the image is actually captured. I read that it's before you actually hear the shutter sound. Is that true? This long shutter sound and EVF lag is a little unsettling compared to the Nex 7 that I'm used to. Thanks.

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    John, I think first it closes and after that it opens, takes the exposure, and closes and then it opens to live view again. If I am wrong please someone correct me.

    Thanks, Michiel. Don't you find the lag, long release, and write delay somewhat unsettling compared to your Nex 7? I sure do.

    That's without EFCS. With it, I believe it

    1. resets the sensor
    2. exposure
    3. shutter closes to stop exposure
    4. reads sensor
    5. open shutter

    Two in Hong Kong yesterday, both with a rather well used Nikon 20mm f/2.8 D on the A7R. In at least the first image the distortion of this lens is apparent, but it's not bad for a design from the 1980s. It has excellent edge and corner sharpness at f/8, and not bad at f/5.6. CAs are reasonably pronounced. Nettar

    Outstanding for an old lens that (to my eyes) produces better images on this body than on the bodies it was designed for. I was never impressed with this lens on the F2AS. The second image shows little, if any, distortion.

    Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays (or as we say here, "Nollick Ghennal!") to all.

    I've recently joined the A7R fun, but haven't had much time to take it seriously. Here are three from a couple of recent trips to London, all with CV Nokton 1.5/50:

    Your LCC looks very close....nice to see that this good VC lens performs this well on the A7R.

    And I am seeing TUBES ... lots of em....

    Is that a Vermont Casting or Jotul stove?

    Love it.

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    Not sure how much actual fun initially testing and torturing a camera is.

    I've got family here to attend to, but try to sneak in a few shots to try this and that to see what's what.

    Attached are a few unremarkable hand-held snaps ... which I normally wouldn't even post EXCEPT they are all high ISO explorations.

    The two people shots were done at ISO 10,000 ... frankly, I cannot recall a camera that produced such nice skin colors at ISO 6,400 let alone 10,000 ... these were done in quite low light as evidenced by the exif info ... like: 1/25th shutter, f/2.8, ISO 10,000

    I'm still stunned by this camera's ISO performance having started with the A900.

    Marc,

    These are stunning...10,000 seems unreal to me. My A850 and 900 at 400 had a lot more noise than these.

    And the 135/1.8 has such a beautiful drawing.

    No family here until the 29th so just catching up on the threads....
