    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    Ok, I hate this forum: I had earlier decided against getting caught in A7/R hysteria. But with all the nice pictures here and comments from Guy, Marc, K-H and others, I finally ordered the A7 from B&H. UPS delivered late last night.

    One grab shot from today, in windy conditions and my hands are not that steady.

    A7 + Leica Elmarit-M 90MM @ F4.



    Crop from the same shot (about 25% of the image):

    My usual interior wide angle test shot, this time with the Nikon 17-35 @ 17 and F8.
    The pixco adapter is slightly skewed to left, but only extreme wide angle lenses
    show it.

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    I had a fun outing with the fabulous Matt Driscoll earlier this afternoon. The sun sets in Seattle around 4:30 at this time of year, so Golden Hour comes early. We headed to Pike's Place market, each of us sporting our A7's...I brought only M lenses (35 lux asph, 50 Noct f/0.95, 90 APO cron). Matt shot his 55 FE lens, and I am certain he will be posting soon. Here are some quick edits....

    Thanks Joe! The first one in that set of mine was a "selfie".

    I will be VERY happy if my 90mm Elmarit-R ROM performs this well on my A7. Hope to have my Novoflex adapter on Monday.

    Everybody: Thanks. Always fun, and productive, to go out with a fellow enthusiast to shoot. I'm liking that lens. Not sure why anybody wouldn't?

    Hermann: Thanks! I'm not surprised. The last shot was the corridor outside our room. The second to last was looking up from the first floor lobby through the tapering atrium. The third from last was the atria opening at the top floor night club. Very interesting renovation of the old BBC Building.

    No tripod. I am really glad with that 100/2 FD. No camera till now did so much justice to my FD lenses or the other way around.

    Nikon 50-135/3.5 MF w/A7. Compact, beautifully constructed, very sharp...been one of my favorites since I was using it as a 75-200 with my D200. Like other zooms (75-150E, 80-200/4.5) of its vintage, has zoom creep so you have to be careful with focusing...images produced are worth the care.

    Makten,

    I'm very interested in Olympus OM legacy lenses on Sony a7/a7r. How does the Novoflex adapter behave with your Sony mount, and the OM mount; e.g. does the fit of each feel well matched?

    I'm particularly interested in Sony/OM wide-angle combinations down to, say, OM 24mm; have you shot any wide-angle OMs, and if so, how's the result? Hope you or someone else can give feedback.

    Chris

    I myself had found that the A7R can make lens perform great that did not look good on previous digital cameras due to aberrations. Thus this is the positive finding which opposes the negative finding of wide angle Leica M and other range finder wide and especially super-wide angle lens on this camera. On another note, I also sometimes prefer the old Zeiss SLR lens (I don't have new version) over the Leica M lens due to color and clarity, which is a shocking finding on my part. This does make sense since Zeiss is designing lens for the Sony camera system. From another angle, I prefer my Leica M lens on my M9 over the Sony. This last note will need much more space to write so I will keep it short here. Perhaps just perhaps a reason why Jono returned his camera?

    On a good note of the Canon FD lens on the Sony A7R (A7?) camera by Michiel, here is my contribution to the forums:

    I found that the 1.2/50L FD has a wider view and more interesting bokeh than the new 1.2/50L EF lens.

    re: Fun With Sony _____

    Ahhh I see someone else besides me is out there still using something other than a A7/A7r.. .. excellent shots Malina DZ. I just got a pristine Minolta 50mm f1.4 for $105usd a month ago on the auction site and near feel guilty using it I got it so cheap.

    I know I have been cleaning up on the used A mount lenses on flee bay and getting some ridiculously great deals on some truly spectacular glass due to the move to E mount FF and people trying to get cash to pay for this new glass to use on their new babies Between the dumping of old A mount glass (guess many don't like using A-E adapters I know I have two of these for my NEX system and barely ever used mine) and the dumping of E mount apc glass on flee bay I am going to the poor house buying up what I did not already have for my two Sony systems at pennies on the dollar.

    The fit between camera and adapter is perfect; just like a native lens. Between adapter and lenses it's a bit tighter, but not exstensively so. The adapter is also darkish, almost black, on all the internal faces, so I expect no problems with flare and have never seen it so far.
    If cost is not a problem, I think it's nicer built than my two Metabones adapters. Thickness is within 0.01 mm all around, which is very good (measured with precision digital calipers).

    I'm particularly interested in Sony/OM wide-angle combinations down to, say, OM 24mm; have you shot any wide-angle OMs, and if so, how's the result? Hope you or someone else can give feedback.
    Yes, I have the 21/3.5 SC, 28/3.5 SC, 28/2 MC, 35/2.8 SC and they are all very good except for the extreme corners, unless stopping down quite a bit. They are so tiny that I actually like that the adapter is fairly long! It makes the ergonomics better.

    What I like most about the OM lenses are the colors, that remind me of very expensive Leica glass. Perhaps they had to use some exotic glass types to be able to minimize the optical design. Particularly the 21/3.5 is unbelievably good for being so small.

    Don't have much with the 21 online, but here is one at f/5.6. IIRC, it was only cropped at the bottom.

    The 28/2 is my favourite, and makes a nice kit with the FE 55. Here's a bunch with it...

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    I've got a OM 21m f3.5 MC on the way with a Novoflex but I won't get it till the end of the month worse luck. Had to post it to the UK and a friend is bringing it out for me. I have 3 novoflex's on the way. OM, M42 and Pentax K. Yes I can get cheaper adaptors but I don't have the patience for messing around and trying stuff. Easier just to invest now rather than invest later having paid for a bunch of heartache in between.

On another note, I also sometimes prefer the old Zeiss SLR lens (I don't have new version) over the Leica M lens due to color and clarity, which is a shocking finding on my part. This does make sense since Zeiss is designing lens for the Sony camera system. From another angle, I prefer my Leica M lens on my M9 over the Sony. This last note will need much more space to write so I will keep it short here. Perhaps just perhaps a reason why Jono returned his camera?
    HI there - certainly was - my first idea was to use the A7r with M lenses, and although the longer focal length's were fine . . . but anyway, my reasons were given.
    I've had some time to think of it now - and realised that rather than having the A7r to take up some of the business with the Leica M . . . I could use an A7 to take up some of the business of my E-M1.

    Don't have much with the 21 online, but here is one at f/5.6. IIRC, it was only cropped at the bottom.

    A walk at the marine station in CPH with A7r and the Zeiss 55 1.8 - Despite reading it's a no soul lens, cold and no feelings , and the sensor/processsor is not that good - stealing bit from you, and SONY fake a AA filter.. Im still in love..

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    Nice shots Werner! Is the 18mm the Zeiss on a Nikon mount? If so, how do you like it? Any comments vs. the Zeiss 21mm? I have the Zeiss 21mm but would like to change for the 18 for weight and space reasons.

    Thanks!

    Gary - I had the Elmarit-R 90MM earlier (not ROM, older version) and used it on Nex-7 along with the M version. The R is equally capable, though I found that it needed a boost in contrast sometimes. Other than that, the sharpness and clarity was at par with the Elmarit M.

    Martin - Thank you for your speedy and generous response; it helps me a great deal. Even on my inexpensive temporary monitor I get your enjoyment of the colour output, you've made a compelling case for OM lenses used with a Novoflex adapter. Thank you for the helpful information, and the telling images.
