    Thorkil, I agree. And I will play with the distortion setting more to see if I can improve on it.

    In fact you are touching on a question I would like to ask of your or perhaps anyone on the forum with experience of using Tilt-Shift lenses.

    Would a TS lens fully eliminate such distortions?

    Louis a TS lens will help for these kind of architectural shots to get everything straight, but likely it will become tripod work. Don't know if you fancy that.

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Hi Louis
    I'm not expirienced with TS-lenses (but I would guess)
    But Keystone is often used 100% (and I nearly often think it looks weird), and I often tend to think that some natural distortion is better than 100% correction, because thats the way our eyes see it, but our mind know that the lines ought to be vertical, and do the "psykological" correction. And when the Keystones try to do the same, at 100%, it goes wrong. It has to be a compromise then, and one has to find a "naturel" hand-made(/individuel)balance between right and wrong, I think.

    Re: Fun With Sony _____

    Contax's odd and quirky Sonnar 100mm f3.5. By the look of its MTF its image circle would cover a much larger frame, corner quality is within 5% of that in the very centre. Exactly 7,070 of them were made, up to around 1995, in three batches. It's as good on the a7r as the FE55. I'll post more from it.

    Contax 100mm f3.5 ctd. Being able to use manual focus lenses opens the door to so many older lenses, many of them fully capable of shining on today's (and tomorrow's) sensors. Mine is around 20 years old.

    Edge blur at open aperture, but no smearing and no color shift,
    Stopping down one aperture is a significant increase in quality.
    It is very sharp, the slight chromatic aberration is quickly disappeared in C1.

    It is quite small and compact.

    I would prefer f1.4. Canon 1.4 / 24mm is very good, but for me too great and the Summilux 24mm is too expensive.

    I hope Voigtländer will bring an M-mount at the Photokina.


    The Zuiko has the character of old lenses.
    If you like this, you'll be very happy with the lens

    really good

    small edits in C1Pro, no post with Photoshop

    but, its not a good solution for architecture
    The distortion looks like a dovetail

    .... but for landscape, it's nice

    sorry for the size

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Wow Cindy, those are great shots. Very editorial. Was the "Rosie" theme for a specific editorial use, or a conceptual portrait?

    VERY Leica looking using a Sony body … proving that glass counts a lot. Which version of the R50 Lux was used?

    Thank you, Marc. It was a concept shoot. The model specializes in pin-up and was game for the Rosie-the-riveter theme. We were battling rain and drizzle, so the sky was like a huge soft-box. The location was an early 1900's foundry building, which is soon to be torn down. They could not allow us to go inside, because of safety concerns. That would have been really great.

    My lens is the 1st version, series 7, but it never disappoints me.

    Cindy,

    I love the colors!. At first, I wasn't a fan of the 50mm FL, but you've proved how useful it can be. The overcast is simply perfect with no contrasty shadows, but blends color so nicely.

    Thanks, Johnny. The 50mm focal length is my favorite. My favorite M lens is the 50 rigid that I was so lucky to get from you. It has great color. I like my 1937 Contax CZJ 50 f/1.5 for its unique draw. My Japanese Summilux Canon 50 f/1.4 is great on contrasty days. I have a 50 f/2 10 blade Summitar on my M2. And last, but not least, the 50mm f/1.8 FE!

    Thanks for the Likes everyone!

And last, but not least, the 50mm f/1.8 FE!

    Thanks for the Likes everyone!
    Cindy,

    I'm glad your enjoying the 50 rigid! I miss that lens and will probably look for more leica glass for my A7. Did you post any pics taken with the 1937 Contax? I'd love to see the rendering of that too. Keep up the great work!
