    A few in the South Park Neighborhood of Seattle. It's working class (whatever that means these days, since, we're all working) and hemmed in by freeways, industry and the Duwamish River.

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Illustrating two 28mm lenses, one RF and one DSLR, on A7: Konica f2.8 Hexanon in M mount, and Zeiss f2.8 Distagon in C/Y mount:

    Of the five M-mount 28s I tried, the Hexanon-M was the only one that didn't smear the corners at an aperture wider than f5.6 (I'd also tried Summicron, Ultron V1, Skopar, and Biogon). But it does tint the corners with a bit of blue and also offers some noticeable barrel distortion. To compensate for this I've been exposing with ExpoDisk and then post-processing with Adobe Flat Field plug-in and Lens Correction. This seems to retain most of the lens's admirable sharpness, but it does seem to flatten out some subtleties of tone.

    The Zeiss isn't quite as sharp in the corners, but being a retrofocus lens, it neither tints the corners nor smears them. It does vignette at wider apertures, but it's only luminance vignetting – easy to correct if you don't like it. Image quality has a lot of 'presence,' which is what Distagons are known for.

    I'm not sure which of these I'll end up keeping. The Hexanon-M is inconspicuous and ergonomically comfortable, but it requires a lot of post-processing. Zeiss has better image tone and less distortion right out of the camera, but its size makes the little A7 seem as clumsy as a DSLR. People are certainly more likely to notice it on the street – on its first day out, two strangers commented on the 'nice' (i.e., conspicuous) camera.

    (Both images have been perspective-cropped, so they're fill-frame at the bottom but have lost their farthest top corners.)

    Micro setup for macro hiking

    These shots were taken with a Foldio portable studio (with built in lighting and exchangeable backdrop colours!) and an A7R both with and without Kenko macro extension tubes. Tripod was a Gorillapod, and all processing and uploading was on a Surface Pro 2 running Lightroom. I used a micro SD card with adaptor so no card reader needed. I could have used my iPhone to create a personal hotspot for the uploads but I didn't.

    All this fits into a small backpack and is very light. I am practicing for a trip to the rainforest soon, where I want to shoot some high res images of flora and fauna to make large prints from, in studio conditions but whilst hiking.

    I haven't perfected the technique yet, but it really is fun trying!

    Excellent Tim,
    Just a quick question you could hopefully answer for me.
    Do the Kenko extension tubes vignette with the 55/F1.8 at any apertures?...or is it necessary to crop the images afterwards.
    Many thanks...Cheers Barry

    Barry, thanks! They do vignette a little, a crop of about 10-20% is needed. This seems the case with the zoom too, but the 35mm FE is fine if you stop down a bit.

    Tashley,

    You make the 35mm sing! The tonal gradiations are creamy smooth. I've been toying with the idea of getting one, but new FE lenses should be announced next month, so might wait. I'm hoping for a slightly wider, faster prime lens for landscape. Nicely done!

    Many thanks Tim,
    A loss of just 10-20% is pretty good in reality...I have to confess I was expecting you to say higher.
    Still plenty of the pie to eat just leave behind the outer crust.
    I have had the Kenko Ext. tubes before on a Canon outfit they seem to be pretty well made and better than most that I have owned in the past.
    Cheers Barry

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    I do so love owning a camera with a sensor which will quite happily work at iso6400 and with a lens which does such magical things with light. RAW file processed in LR with only adjustment to the white balance. A7+55/1.8.

    Ah! Family rules (Silas in particular) dictates that I'm no longer allowed to indulge in selective colouring . . . although I rather like these.

    Sometimes however I break away from them and stick my tongue out at such stupid strictures (A7 with kit lens)

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    I was kinda mad at my A7 last week because so many medium-wide M lenses looked bad in the corners. But now I'm back in love, especially with this nice old Zeiss f2.8 C/Y Distagon. I see what people mean when they say that Zeiss lenses have 'presence.' I never caught onto this with the Zeiss 21 and 28 that I used to use on M8 – they didn't seem to have it. Maybe it's just something about their retrofocus designs. There's a subtlety in tonal transitions and a kind of 'latent sharpness,' so that I can read little signs in images at 100% on my monitor, even though they're too small to read in A3 prints. The lens is about the size of a pickup truck, but I sure like its rendering!

    Another bit of 'plain Americana':

    Many thanks Jono, It was just a bit of fun! A simple straight 50/50 opacity blend between the colour image and a toned pre-set that I made up in Nik Silver Efex Pro 2. Nothing as complex as selective erasing, dodging or burning on the layer. It's not tone mapped or HDR either.
    Hopefully it should even be safe enough for you to try without upsetting any of your family Cheers Barry.

    My friends' daughter have bought this property and will soon move in to start fixing it up. We took a walk through yesterday, a treasure trove of things left behind and abandoned.

    Thanks for looking. Comments always appreciated.

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Two more from yesterday's outing at Buttermilk Falls with the A7r+55 1.8.

    Focus here was on the Hemlock branch. Just let the background scene go OOF. Note log jammed against the footbridge support.



    This is a head on view of the snapped log visible in above shot.

    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    Haha, he is a friend whom I went on a photo walk with. Fair to say he now admits who's the better photographer

    Guy,

    Congratulations for the wonderful news and the upcoming events...


    Doubt that a child/grandchild would be better drawn than those of your household....children and grandchildren are a blessing.

    Almost a need for MF here....

    Great picture by the way. Must take after her mom....


    Humble regards and most sincere congratulations!


    Bob

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    My house is on the other side of Lake Union on the hill to the left. My office is on this side behind me. The Fremont Bridge, which I cross several times a day, is reputed to be the busiest draw bridge in the country. It was up, so, I got out to see what was passing under it. Turns out to be a 300' +/- concrete pontoon for the new floating bridge being built on Lake Washington! Not every day a hunk of concrete with a tug on each end cruises by. The pontoons are being built at Grays Harbor, on the Pacific Coast of Washington. I didn't know the Ballard Locks between Puget Sound and Lake Union were big enough for something like that.

    Googled it: 360' long and 11,000 tons!

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    While waiting for my bicycle to be worked on I ventured down to a bit of wooded river area right in the heart of the city. Im normally a cat person myself but there were several people out with their dogs and were pleased to let me take photos of them. Shoes left on the pebbled beach and pants rolled up I ventured out into the cold water for a bit of ankle wading. Turns out the A7 is decently water resistant in this type of environment, as tested by fairly close shots of very wet dogs romping about. Manual focus made capturing the fast moving beasties difficult but I managed a couple of respectable one. Overall a good, but tiring, day. All shots on either the Yashica ML 50/1.7 or the ML Macro 55/4. Surprisingly, all the water shots are from the Macro.
