    Hey no noise either. LOL

    I injected them with lossy compressed raws. ROTFLMAO

    Just for the record there are 4 lights going on. Including one Nissin Di700a. Im loving this portable flash I want 2 more. Main lights are Dynalites with a 1600 watt pack and 3 heads

    Just saw this not that I am the biggest DXO fan but still

    DXO The A7rII the new king of the hill. Big marks on high ISO. No question about it for me but it is several points higher on the A7r which is all that matters to me, so outside the functions and features it is a improvement on the IQ from the A7r, which it should be. Don't care about the Nikon not on my radar

    I did the 90/2.8 and 28/2 instead of the two batis.
    But I hardly shoot under 35 and then the 16-35/4 is a good choice. So the Batis 25/2 would be only a lens for rare moments and for that the 28/2 is enough.
    On 85 I hardly shoot faster than f3.2 and I wanted a native macro lens for the FE system anyway. Because the 90 is sharpness and performance with nice colors and bokeh, it was an easy choice.
    But this thread helps not to still my desire to own these lenses anyway.

    My grandson can't sit still, as usual, so it's not perfectly sharp, but this snap shows the nice bokeh the macro can deliver.

    Dan you have to give it time. Honestly sometimes it may take a couple months. This has a lot going on but you will figure out how to simplify it too. Evf takes some adjustment as well. I'm really used to it now. I think it's a OVF sometimes. LOL

    Seriously just give it some time it will come around.

    If I can help it I never want to go back to a DSLR. Mirrors suck

    I did as I prefer the bokeh from the 90.

    I never expected the 90 to be such an easy portrait lens after hearing all the doom and gloom about AF speed.

    But it turns out that if I pop the 90 on my A7r2 and use Eye Detect that it is a great portrait lens with speedy and very accurate AF.

    I would be happy with it on that basis alone.

    Add in the really fantastic macro quality, including Sony's flip out LCD screen and focus tracking that works and AF points everywhere and I would be happy with it as a Macro lens alone.

    It is a lens without any significant drawbacks for my usage.

    For portraits with a really shallow DOF, I have legacy glass.

    In the future, maybe Sony will thrill us with a zippy 135 G lens in the native FE mount.

    Mike - great shot. I liked the look of your camera straps - who makes them?

    Thanks,

    If you mean these straps - they are Artisan & Artist model ACAM103N, which are excellent.

    Hi Guy,

    Thanks for this excellent post. I have a Batis 25mm on the way and can't wait to try it out on the A7rii.

    I have been on the fence about C1, since I use LR heavily for my real estate work with my D800e and 14-24mm, but after reading your comment regrading how the sony raw files seem to processes better than in LR, I gave it a try and it I definetly notice a big improvement in the overall look of the file. I tried it using the Loxia 35mm ( that I bought from you ) although I am surprised there is not a lens profile for it in C1.

    Fred
