    Thanks Jaree, much appreciated! Seldom shoot night landscapes so will keep those processing parameters in mind.

    They really have a nice look. Like slide film crossed with the 'cleanness' of a digital file =)

    Do you have any raws from the 20mm by any chance? Fred Miranda has started singing its praises and I'm quite interested. I've sold the OM 21mm because I wasn't impressed with the corners and am looking for a replacement. Will probably end up with the Zeiss 18mm or whatever Sony bring out but if I can save money I'll be happy to buy the FD lens.

    My first SLR ever was an AE-1 with a broken meter that I found in the attics of the 1 hour lab I was managing after I left the army. I had a few lenses already when I traded up to a somewhat brassed A1 from a very successful NY wedding photographer who was retired prematurely due to disability (MS I think). My photographic mentor who I met a year later was a Nikon man but you usually end up sticking to the system you start with don't you? This Sony A7r was my first move from Canon since that first AE-1, not counting MF and LF of course.

    This processed version was at f8. It's not bad for $150.

    I also included a Lightroom profile for the lens in the shared folder.

    From my walk along the Thames Bank around Rotherhithe today, during low tide. A7 + FE 35 and 55 lenses. For those who don't know the dramatic architecture in the first two frames is London's Canary Wharf.

    Mike, where was the focus on these files? The left top corner is sharp by f11 but the top right doesn't sharpen up till f16 by which time diffraction is very apparent. In any case considerably better than the OM 21mm. Thank you again for your time!

    I was focused on the snow on top of the boat, which was about 50 feet away. The stuff in the upper right was much closer than that.

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Yay, a new A7 thread.

    Here are a couple of test shots from my new Yashica ML 35/2.8 (series 1). This lens is incredibly uncommon, but I hesitate to call it rare. It simply does not come up for sale with the frequency of any of the other normal focal length ML's. The 50mm ML's, 1.7 and 1.4, come up all the time. Same with the 28/2.8. Heck even the 24/2.8 and 21/2.8 show up more often then the 35/2.8. I have no idea why. You would think that Yashica would have cranked out a ton of these lenses in this popular focal length. But I guess they didnt.

    In about two years of checking the auction site I have seen maybe 7 of them go up for sale. Now granted, thats just when I was checking for them. But in that same time there were countless other ML's selling in those other focal lengths. I have only ever seen one for sale on KEH.com and that was in ugly condition. Maybe someone might have some insight into why they are uncommon.

    Without further ado, the test shots. I plan to go use it some more today.

    From Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta. WATE at 16mm, A7r, polarizer, F8. Not real happy with the distortion. Perhaps I need to look at a T/S lens again....

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Gorgeous March weather here the past two days. I headed for the hills in late afternoon, one day with the 24-70 and the next with the 28-70.

    The light was so beautiful. It happens just two or three days a year that we get this sunny but slightly hazy clarity. I never, ever get a shot that in any way does justice to how lovely it looks but it sure is fun trying...

    HI Tim
    Lovely light isn't it - no rolling countryside here, but we do still have the light.

    I think I like the first one best - surprised that you're shooting with the 28-70 when you have the 24-70? Is there anything it does better?

    Just this guy you know
