    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Two from today's walk at the marina with the A7r and 28mm f/2.8 M-Rokkor (mounted with the Phigment adapter) This little lens has become my go to 28 on the A7r. Sharp across the frame, minimal CA, and no corner/edge smearing. Easily outperforms my Leica R 28 Elmarit, Contax C/Y 28 Distagon, and CV 28 1.9 Ultron.

    For now I think it is a great interior/architecture lens. I am going to try it in a museum soon.

    Outside in the sun yesterday it was all a little to contrasty to my taste, so don't know yet. Colors were a bit harsh.

    It has no crazy flare problems. The first picture is right against the sun. (BTW this is the Piece palace in The Haque)





    Many thanks Michiel, most appreciated.
    Some very nice images, that lens always had a pretty good reputation especially for controlling flare.
    It's a very nice optic which would make a great universal (fairly light weight) travel companion for me with the 55mm FE f/1.8.
    Getting hold of a good copy though is probably the biggest problem!
    I look forward to seeing more of your images taken with it.
    Thanks again.
    Cheers Barry

    Re: Fun With Sony _____

    Beautiful shot of a beautiful bird Bill. It just fits perfectly in the pool and the small flowers just add to it all.


    Just a little more fun with my 20 mm on the NEX6, I really like what I'm getting there.

    Utrecht (under the Dom tower), the djembé just paused for a split second


    Dreadlock horse


    Near Westmalle, I think these are aspergas mounts


    And finally the reward after a 2 hour walk (I didn't manage a shot when it was still full )

    a7r with EA4/70-400 G. Only used this combo for one day where I could brace myself securely because it has no IS or OSS. Reverted back to the a99 and its IS for birdlife after this one.

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    All this for a cat photo ...



    Manfrotto CX190pro3 legs
    Arca-Swiss Monoball P0 head
    RRS lever action clamp
    Sony A7 body
    Novoflex NEX/NIK Nikon mount adapter
    Novoflex ASTAT/NEX tripod mounting adapter
    Micro-Nikkor 55mm f/3.5 pre-AI + M-tube
    Nikon ES-1 Slide Stage
    Hakuba flat panel light box
    JJC IR remote release

    My brother's had a rough week. Two of his adopted kitties died or were killed this week. He asked if I had any photos of his über-kat, a gorgeous gray cat full of personality that was his friend in the 1970s. I hunted a bit and found one old Agfachrome 50 slide, used the setup above to capture the slide ...


    He was a magnificent cat, the photo does not do him justice.

    Another slide capture with the A7 from yesterday ...


    Mom, photographer, likely about 1980.
    Ektachrome 64 slide made with Minolta XD-11.

    She actually used the Nikon EM I bought her in '78-79 for a time. I think my brother still has it.

    Michiel, the second and last one are my favorites. The little nervous bokeh of the Rubinar fits there very well...

    My grandson at my son's wedding, with my new Zeiss 85mm f1.4 ZE (on a Metabones Smart Adapter III.)

    I love this lens.

    Shot at f1.4/ISO 4000 in a rather dark corner of the room (as evidenced by his wide open pupils.)

    Re: Fun With Sony _____

    You can see it's a crop Bill (or higher iso), but the pose in which you caught it, with the concentrated gaze towards the ground (or water surface) really makes it a nice catch.

    EDIT: this comment is on the eagle, you posted some more shots inbetween while I was typing

    Let me alternate again with some more 20 mm shots (on the NEX6). The more I use this little lens the more I like it.

    Some more examples from my love affair with photography and the lovely A7 as the tool of choice. The first shot was taken with the 58/2 Biotar. The next three with the Yashica ML 50/1.7 and the last three with the Tamron 17a Adaptall 35-70mm f/3.5.

    I've had good luck with the Wasabi batteries sold from Amazon.com. $29 for two batteries and a charger.

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Tareq,

    I don't recommend buying other than the OEM Lithium-Ion batteries for any camera. The battery for the a7/a7R is a $39 item from B&H. Lithium-Ion batteries are nasty little devils and I don't trust any advertised on eBay unless OEM from a reputable retailer. YMMV.

    And that is why i asked this question, i was looking for only OEM battery, i placed that on B&H 1 week ago, but i didn't pull the trigger to buy yet as i have other items to fill and also waiting for budget, now the budget is available and the items i want to buy are also filled, but still i don't want to go with more than 1 battery yet for that price, and if you are telling me that those ads on eBay are mostly spams then i prefer to avoid, even they are so cheap but i better save it for OEM Genuine one than cheaper more quantity and not sure they are genuine ones.

    I may go with one from B&H now, and later i save more and buy another 1 or 2 if needed, i am planning to buy more SD cards which i have only one new i bought, so later i want to buy more than i can think to buy one more battery, just i hope i don't regret i passed those cheap choices on eBay if they work flawlessly as well, and even that of Wasabi sounds working perfectly i still don't want to buy 3rd party or non-OEM batteries.

    I have two OEM batteries and two Wasabi. I've been testing them, comparing their charge longevity and such. They are identical, far as I can tell. It's up to you to spend nearly 3x as much for Sony branded batteries if that's what makes you comfortable, never mind the 'free' charger thrown in. I understand the comfort issue.. Sometimes it's worth it. I don't think it is in this case, but that's me.
