    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    Hi Matt,
    at first I set the peaking to red but I am now trying yellow.

    We recently went on a trip to Universal Studios. Our cats stayed home in the care of my in-laws. They have expressed their opinion on the matter:

    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    The NEX-7 is a different beast from any camera I've ever used. It has some aspects of a medium format digital (file size, noise characteristics, file malleability), a DSLR (sensor size, interchangeable lenses), and compact cameras (body size and handling). The EVF adds a whole new dimension of usability, allowing features like exposure compensation to be used with great ease. It makes for a different shooting experience.

    The Fotodiox adapter for M-lenses arrived today. Fotodiox guarantees infinity focus and they are right.

    Matt, I reduce it on export. In LR 3.6 I use the LR2/Mogrify plugin to handle that plus framing, titling and watermarking. It a very flexible tool.

    Michiel and Vivek, congrats!
    Got mine yesterday from K-E in Capelle. Didn't get to spend much time with it yet, but so far I'm impressed. IQ looks familiar to my A900, the NEX 7 feels more solid than the 5n and Tri-Navi is brilliant.

    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    Carlos: I read your first impressions, and tried to leave you a note on your web site, but I could not read the anti spam words correctly (I tried 4 times). At any rate here is what I tried to post:

    Carlos: We have never met, or corresponded, but I really appreciate your first impressions; VERY valuable insight for me. I also pre-ordered an NEX 7 with kit lens (it is not here yet). In preparation, I slowly accumulated several NEX lenses: the 24mm f1.8 Zeiss, 55-210 stabilized lens, the 16mm "pancake" and the 30mm Macro. I also got Fotodiox adapters for Contax/Zeiss, Leica R, Leica M, Nikon F, and Pentax M42. I'm 74 yrs old and have an extensive collection of legacy bodies and lenses. I have not been able to get a NEX to Topcon adapter, The one I purchased will adapt old Exakta/Topcon, but not the newer Topcons. This is a pity, as I have some pristine Topcon glass: 50 mm f1.4, 28mm, 135mm with beautiful telescoping lens hood, and the tiny magnificent 100mm f2.8
    Thanks again for your insight, and Happy New Year.

    Thanks, Peter. We got lucky. KE does list it for a higher price though, don't they?

    Just dusting up some adapters and charging the batteries..

    Peter, I look forward to you some of your photos with your new 7!

    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    Gurtch: Thanks for the kind words. Sorry about the CAPTCHA on the reply system, but if I did not have it there I would have 70 zillion posts advertising Viagra, Cialis, Russian Mail-order brides and heaven knows what else.

    I would contact Fotodiox (probably next week as the rest of this week is pretty much useless) and request that newer Topcon adapter. Heck, they make every other kind of adapter, why not that one?

    Yes, I paid their premium price of €1249 but they have this 5 year extended guaranty offer now and the lowest price I could find was €1199, but those weren't in stock. I figured that the guaranty would add to the resale value. As happy as I am now, I can't imagine that I'll be shooting the NEX 7 in say 2 years from now…

    Hope to shoot some images today. Should this forum open a dedicated NEX 7 image thread?

    Ah, okay

    Last week I moved from Amsterdam to a remote rural area in the nothwest of the country.
    The delivery of my NEX 7 was very late because during the holiday season there's only one mailman for the large under populated district were I live now. Anyway, when my camera finaly arrived it was already late in the afternoon but I just had to get out to take some test shots. There I was happily shooting away, when I realised I had lost my glove. Since I'm in a wheelchair, I couldn't pick it up myself. Had to wait 15 minutes in the near dark. Then a farmer passed by and kindly handed it to me.

    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    Alright, opened the nice box and started using it right away. Sony did supply it with a body-cap , a rubber eye cup for the EVF and a strap (plus the usual plugs, CD, manuals..).

    Just clocked a whopping two snaps with an Olympus pen F 40/1.4. Shutter operation is just so smooth and amazing (better than the Samsung NX10 and several orders of magnitudes better than the shotgun shutter of NEX-5). I will post pictures later when I get more time.

    At this point, I have not had a chance to fully figure out the functions, menu and all that but being usable as it is (only past experience is a Nex-5), all I can say is- WOW!

    Never been this excited since I first started using the Panasonic G1 when that debuted.

    Fabulous and a to Sony!

    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    I openend mine last night as well.
    Like others it will definitely take some time to figure out my customization.
    The tri-navi dials at the top are very nice.
    It was asked if the level fully functions in portrait mode - yes it rotates (very nice touch)
    Actually smaller than I expected.

    For others in the US.....what was on the CD that you got? My camera might actually have been destined for Europe as I ended up downloading the GB manual and all of versions seemed to be for Europe.

    This is going to be a fun weekend although the only lens I have with me until Sunday is the 16mm.

    Thanks Michiel, today the weather wasn't so bad, lots of light. Under these shooting conditions the NEX 7 provides lots of detail, see crop.

    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    Though no pictures, I can report here on a few lenses:

    1. Olympus Pen F 40/1.4. Stopped down to f/2 is very very sharp and contrasty. Better than the one below.

    2. Minolta Rokkor 40/2 Alright. Less contrasty than the pen F and also less sharp. Needs to go to around f/4.

    3. Canon 50/0.95. Despite the bulky package, it is a joy to use on the NEX-7. By f/1.4, it is already very, very nice. Worth the weight to carry if one has it.

    4. Olympus Pen F 38/2.8 pancake. Never that stellar. So, no surprises. I would still prefer to have it for street shooting.

    5. Robot CZJ Tessar 3cm f/2.8. I have some attachment to this lens due to its beautiful construction and it being tiny. It behaves as expected. Easy to flare and OK images.

    I have about 8 or 9 other Olympus Pen F lenses, a few c-mount lenses, another Robot lens, etc, etc totaling > 100 to play around with.

    I have not brought myself to even mount the 16mm on the NEX-7. Probably won't for a long time.

    Peter, Nice example. Today was much better than the miserable weather we had. I might buy the Sony 30/3.5 just because it is so inexpensive here.

    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    After seeing all these images I think I should also get a NEX-7.

    What would be the most preferable Sony lens for it? Above that I would use it with my M glass collection, so what is the best adapter?

    Thanks

    Peter

    Same set up but infinity shooting...

    Blacksmith 1



    Blacksmith 2



    This is a major step from the NEX-5N...

    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    HI Bob
    Lovely clean shots

    Carlos - you will not show me shots with that lens - I already have the A mount f2 and the Leica f1.4 . . . I do NOT need another 24mm!

    Terry - congratulations on yours as well. How are you getting on?

    Peter - it's the same old Sony colour that you don't like - take care!

    Fabulous and a to Sony!
    I opened mine last night as well - I'm pretty excited too!- hooray.
    Busy today, and anyway it's raining, so not much chance to play.

    all the best

    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    N.B
    More snaps later.
    I've figured out the interface I think - seems odd, but pretty cool nonetheless.

    I've used:
    Leica R 28-90
    Leica WATE
    Leica 50 f1.4
    Leica 24 f1.4
    these leica wides do well, with no obvious vignetting or colour cast

    Sony 18-200
    Sony 18-55 kit (silver)
    Sony 16 mm

    Everything has performed perfectly well with good detail and resolution, no magenta corners - actually, I've been very surprised at how well the Sony lenses seem to hold up against the illustrious competition.

    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    here's one with the Leica try-elmar 16-18-21 at 16mm



    I've now also tried the 24 summilux - there's not much vignetting, and no obvious colour cast there either.

    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    Just think, Jono, how were once so impressed by 13.5mp in the old Kodak 14n (I was looking through some old shots from the 14nx yesterday). Now we have 24mp in a welll designed miniature body, the perfect travel camera. What's not to like?!

    Exactly - even the strap's pretty nice! I've not done any big prints yet, but I can see it's gonna be fine (Oh Yes!).

    Looks good. Should be a near perfect lens for the 7,

    Yes! I will admit to that for the first time. I am usually averse to the standard issue straps (barring a few no name ones from the pricey folks).

    Yes, to the other one as well! In my initial excitement, I forgot to set the size to RAW+jpg and snapped the early ones with the largest jpg setting. Even those are pretty good!

    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    Yet another tidbit that most may not need.

    The NEX-7 sensitivity only goes near blue and absolutely shows no UV sensitivity at all (even more severe UV cut than the NEX-5) and nearly no sensitivity beyond 690nm.

    Overall, a very strong UV/IR cut filter inside the cam.

    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    Was doing some pet portraits today. Since I didn't have a radio trigger that fit the NEX-7 (have to look into a hotshoe adapter) I used the pop up flash to trigger the strobes. Still have to Mickey with the settings to get it perfect, put I got some passable shots.

    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    I wonder if the ZM 18mm or the ZM 15mm lens will have a color shift with the NEX7

    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    Rob Skeoch at ThePictureDesk tested out a bunch of ZM glass on a pre-production NEX-7 (he's a camera dealer). The 18mm looked OK to me. See for yourself:

    Re: Fun with NEX-7

    Well, it seems that I am the idiot around the block. Alll of you have your NEX 7 now, and mine, even though I ordered it on the day it was open for pre-orders, is scheduled for the last days in January...:-((((
    Sony were really clever with their marketing in France: the only cams they shipped so far were through their own Sony store in Paris. I can understand that. But selling multiple copies to individuals, who then put them up for auction at twice RRSP? That when they haves scores of loyal customers waiting in line? For shame!

    Sounds like somebody in the supply chain over there is getting a kickback, Phillipe. Sorry to hear that you caught some of that fallout.
