    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    Looks like it was a busy week-end of shooting for everyone...This camera really does appear to inspire us all to get out there, shoot, test, etc....I am really really impressed by your images, as well as the output of the A7 and A7R, for the most part. Given my reliance often on M lenses, the A7 works great for me...

    What follows next are 2 models that I shot, in controlled lighting, using the A7 with the 35 FE, 55 FE, and 85 ZA lenses using the LA-E4 adapter on the last lens...I am very pleased...

    # 1: Haley. I have shot her a few times before. Really lovely young lady, who's main deal is cosplay modelling, where she's made a name for herself. She shoots regularly with Ed Tan, who is on this forum, and I get to shoot her now and again. This type of work is NOT my natural element, but she makes it quite easy:

    Finally, model # 3: Rachel. She's 20 but has a mature way about her, in her presentation. Very nice young woman who's got a cool look....also made it easy to shoot, as she's very expressive...

    A couple from last Friday's shoot with Ashwin. Musicians, Pike Place Market, in front of the "first" Starbucks (not really, but, it's a good story for the tourists). A7 with Sony Zeiss 55mm f/1.8

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    For what it's worth: edge sharpness...been reading comments about "smearing", etc. on some lenses (wide angles)...so I took 4 very sharp lenses with the A7 and shot a mini-landscape at the base of the tree at the end of my driveway...I like the way my eyes follow the lines swiriing up to the base of the tree
    Each shot on a different day, but at about the same early morning time. All exposed at 1/250, f/4 @ ISO 400 in very subdued light...all zooms shot at 35mm focal length...adapters for both the Nikon and the Zeiss were inexpensive Fotodiox adapters.

    Pic #1: Nikon 25-50/4 MF...pic#2: Nikon 28/2.8 MF...pic#3: Zeiss 35-70/3.4...pic#4: Nikon 35-70/3.5 MF...in my opinion edges in all pics look pretty good...edges in the 28 prime lens probably the best.

    I STAND CORRECTED...I did not read carefully enough and assumed all wide angle lenses were having smeared edges...as Makten correctly pointed out, only RF wide angles are having this problem...I hope I have not misled anyone. Anyway...I got a chance to show off four superlative manual focus SLR lenses.

    The problems with smearing introduced by the sensor is only present with rangefinder lenses, because of their short distance from exit pupil to sensor. Any SLR lens should do as good as on their native cameras.

    Very Nice Eeraj - excellently sharp, but don't you feel that the eye looks a little plasticky?

    Hi Eeraj - I'm enjoying it a lot . . . today I introduced it to some high quality English rain (snaps later).

    As for real eyes - couldn't you have used Barbie's owner (or is she harder to keep still!).

    re: Fun With Sony _____

    Taken at the pool yesterday. Shot from about 60' feet (18.2 meters) with the Sony a900 with 70-200/2.8G and 1.4x extender. The photo was cropped and then tweaked a bit with VSCO polaroid filter.

    Hi Jono - Speaking of real eyes, here you go. I had to bribe the model with a bottle of Coke and iPad time. Now if I can only match the color rendering from my M9 and fix the WB, I will be golden.

    A7 + 50'Lux. ~ F2 (I think). Both are cropped (about 50% of original frame)





    Looking forward to see more of your A7 results.

    Matt: Thanks a lot for the added information! Much appreciated, all the more, since we may visit London in the spring after quite a couple of years. So evidently there will be something very interesting new to discover ..

    Matt: A wealth of new nice captures on the last couple of pages. I particularly like the first of the above-quoted due to the thoughtful and very well-working conception (and the colors), the second, because it captures the interaction of the subjects so well/strikingly (and the apt B&W conversion).

    Lovely eyes! and not even slightly plasticky. I think our standard bribe is strawberry yoghurt . . . . . and iPad time

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    We drove down to Cornwall today, stopping at Avebury to exercise the dogs on the Ridgeway - we walked for 40 minutes . . and then the rain came down (no shelter), so we turned around, just before we got back to the car the sun came out, but it was so soooo windy!

    The A7 got thorougly wet too (apparently without damage). not too many shots, and the landscape is probably over worked, but we had fun, the camera was fun . . . . all with the kit lens.

    Emma and the dogs in Bier lane, and the BW dogs in the previous post (my preferred) seem to show the character of the lens, very sharp and contrasty indeed and with defined personality.

    Sergio - I think it's a fine lens - not perfect of course (but which zoom lens is), but definitely a good example of the species!

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    Not your usual posting here.
    A spectacular array of solar acne is happening at the moment, and while most will be oblivious to this, I thought I'd try the A7R on it. I usually use a form of webcam (a flash/expensive form though), but in the past have also used a simple DSLR or P&S. No, the "webcam" is better, but it was fun.
    Whatever you do, DO NOT look at the sun directly to see this.This picture was taken through a 10" telescope with a focal length of 1250mm. On the front was a solar filter (mylar style) with a density of ND5. Shutter speeds was 1/3200th sec, at ISO100.
    As an aside, if you have access to a solar safe filter, take a look, this spot group is easily visible to the naked eye.

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    Well the thread does say "Fun With"

    I've escaped the grey wet northern climes for something almost as wet but at least equatorially warm. I hoped to get the replacement 35 F2.8 and maybe the 24-70 F4 before i left but it was not to be, so I blagged a retailer into splitting an A7 kit so I could purchase just the kit lens so I'd have a flexible run'n'gun lens for less than perfect but hassle free zoom shooting whilst on vacation. I've got the 55 F1.8 with me in case any real opportunities present themselves...

    The 28-70 really is fun. It is imperfect (at this price you'd expect that) and not always very well behaved in terms of focus, stability or shape of field of focus but heck, when it is sharp it is extremely sharp and some frames have blown me away whilst others have been 'meh'.

    But I had low-ish expectations and they have, after one day's shooting, been greatly exceeded.

    Here are some.

    I might hold off on the FE 55 - my cheapo Canon 50mm f1.8 II holds up really well on the A7R :

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    That's right! Too bad we didn't run into each other. One thing I wanted to get a shot of but wasn't close enough was people burning those old christmas trees - they would really flame up spectacularly when first lit. By the time I got over to one, it was just smoking a lot :-)

    Regarding the 21 Super-Elmar: while it definitely doesn't reach full potential on the A7 (let alone the A7R), for a lens that I already had (and plan to keep), it works pretty well IMO. I think there are some (smaller) SLR lenses which will get you 75%+ of the way there for much, much less however - the OM 21/3.5 I think? Of course the Distagon 21/2.8 is great but large.



    This is probably f/8 on the A7. I wouldn't print this at 20x30, but it'd make a great 16x24 print.

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    Few more holiday snaps with the A7R and 28-70. Am also using the Macro Elmar F4 90mm, which is utterly stellar and the best travel short tele imaginable. Will post some later.

    Lovely snow shots from Cunim and Paulo - I am so envious. I love shooting snow a lot more than beaches... but I'd rather be on a beach. Hmmm.

    Amazing to believe that the first and second images are from the same lens! Regarding the first shot I used to have to stitch with pro lenses and bracket to get close to the resolution, tonality and DR I'm now getting from a single handheld shot with a 50 year old lens at iso 5000. Fraction of the PP time too. It's a pain in the neck camera much of the time but I've rarely enjoyed shooting more...

    Re: Fun with the A7/7R

    So, let's go to the beach . . . put the Leica 80-200R lens on the A7 and see if it's possible to get shots of the dogs haring around at 100mph . . . . .



    Matty flying



    Gotcha


    Caspar's Revenge



    Shall we stop fighting and get that Spaniel?



    DriftRope

    Upshot is that I got a really good focusing hit rate (all shot at f4) Camera turned to shutter priority to try and catch the action . . . . It works, and it works well.

    Hi David
    She's fine - nearly 14, but showing no signs of age - she's subdued the new puppy and still spends much of her time in boxes and bags. Can you remember when it was you came (and I'll see what I can find).
