    Re: Fun With Sony _____

    Two noon time shots at a local Palo Alto mall using a Sony A7R2 and Leica R 100 macro (Novoflex adapter) and slight processing in LR. Incredibly easy to focus the Leica 100R (and 60 R), even with (way) less than perfect vision.

    I agree. Barry's images of Cornwall have put it high on my list, too. More so than watching episodes of "Doc Martin" and "Broadchurch".

    OT...^^^You Guys crack me up!

    David, hilarious... lets form an Emmet alliance indeed!...nice one

    Joe...”Broadchurch” is a fictitious place that was shot mostly in Dorset and “Doc Martin” was shot in Port Isaac, Cornwall...
    Did you know that I have to tell at least ten Emmet’s per day that Port Wenn doesn’t exist!...as they can’t find it on their Sat Navs!

    As you are both friends ...I will let you into a little known secret that only the Cornish know about!...Please do keep it to yourselves though...
    If you want to know where the very best beach is in all of Cornwall...It’s Porth Emmet Porthemmet Beach
    No doubt Jono will scold me for letting the cat out of the bag on this one, but it’s a must see if you ever come out this way.
    It’s pretty easy to find actually, you just keep on heading north up the A30 until you see the signs

    We are still alive! They are quiet good in killing rats. These are warehouses, the factorys are a bit farder off the water.
    It is/was quiet handy to put it on a ship for immediate transportation. There are mostly cookie, porridge, snack and chocolate factorys.

    This warehouse is called " Recollection "

    Barry – Oh yes; I remember it well. It's very close to Llaregub, and the end of the track is lined with pixie maidens dispensing Saffron cake and clotted cream to weary beach travellers. It's a must-visit place.

    Looks like we are all going to Cornwall then.

    I am at home with the regular autumn flew and going through the older files and noticed that there are so many I did not have the time to work on.
    This is from this summer at a fair in a little village in Zeeland.

    Joe, don’t go looking for the Doc....He’s a busy man!
    Just sneeze and I’m sure he will find you

    If you don’t wish to be an “Emmet” you could go next door to Devon and be a “Grockle” instead

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 Series Cameras( all of them)

    A couple of panos of Ithaca Falls and Fall Creek. A7RII+Sony FE 24-70, hand held. Salmon and brown trout are spawning in Fall Creek now. I could see several large fish looking down from the cliff below the falls but the fish were ignoring all of the lures several fishermen were throwing at them.





    REJECTED! This hapless angler had a group of 10-15 lb salmon spawning about 10 ft in front of him, but he was unable to get them to even look at his offerings.

    Neolithic cemetery later also used by the Romans. Sion, rue du Petit-Chasseur. First remains ascend to 3200-2700 BC.

    The environment is quite less romantic than the Cornish ones photographed by Barry. On one side is a school and on the other sides apartments houses. The place lacks "magic" but it is also nice to have such a place in the middle of the city.

    Fabulous light on this one Tom just picking out the dolphins as they break the surface of the water.
    Congrats on your new camera.....It's rather good init

    _____________________

    Apart from the dim quay lights this scene was pretty dark to the naked eye!...The EVF was invaluable for composing the image.
    To be honest I just don’t think I would have bothered taking the shot at all if I was using a DSLR with an optical finder, certainly not unless I had a tripod with me at the time.
    This was taken handheld at iso800 0.4 sec with the A7RII/55mm FE shot WO.

    Thanks Barry! I only wish I had something a bit longer than the 55 with me at the time. That shot of the dolphins is practically a 100% crop.

    It's definitely early days - I've had the a7rii since Saturday - but I'm impressed so far. It's much more polished than version 1, and with my somewhat shaky hands ibis is invaluable! I've still got a few quibbles (read: the weight!), but I'm sure I'll adapt in time.

    I hadn't planned on upgrading so soon, but decided to take advantage of the weak Australian dollar vis-a-vis the US dollar. I picked up the Aussie version for $2620 usd.

    I hadn't planned on upgrading so soon, but decided to take advantage of the weak Australian dollar vis-a-vis the US dollar. I picked up the Aussie version for $2620 usd.
    That's a pretty good price Tom, it's already dropped a bit which is obviously annoying to the early adopters and myself that came along a bit later on
    Werner + Guy (with his review) put my mind at ease...so I went ahead and don't regret it in the least...it's a good upgrade for sure.
    You have yourself a great camera now to build a superb lens arsenal around...No rush just pick your lenses slowly and surely for your style of photography - The 55mm is a great lens to radiate your selection around

    Yeah, I got lucky on the price, though only because of the idiosyncrasies of global currency markets! I had planned on buying a used a7rii in a few months at a similar price, but this allowed me to grab a new copy! Even at $3k+ usd it's still a hell of a camera. Also, something tells me (or is it wishful thinking?) it won't depreciate as quickly as the 7r.

    Lenses, lenses, lenses. I keep meaning to buy the FE 16-35 for general purpose use, but for some reason have yet to do so. I know it's a great performer, but something in me just can't stand the thought of carrying bulky zooms anymore. The batis 85 and and FE 90 are also superb choices, but I've got that range pretty well covered with legacy options. What I'm really looking for is a high quality, native, 135mm or 180/200mm that doesn't weigh a ton. f2.8 for the 135 or even f4 for the 180/200 would be fine! I know, this request is unlikely to be met...

    I would pass on the 16-35mm if you hope to get a general purpose lens : the longer end isn't that good. I may have a bad copy of the 16-35mm and a good copy of the 24-70mm, but at 24mm and up, the standard zoom is better than the 16-35mm. From the reviews I have read and the feedback of owners, the wide angle zoom should equal the 24-70mm at 28mm and be better at 24mm. But I was deceived by the results i get, since I mostly use 21mm and up. IMO, for the focals I'm using, it wasn't worth the increased weight and bulk. In fact, it stays home most of the time and I somewhat regret that purchase. I do also regret the 70-200mm F4, which isn't as good as its Canon equivalent and bulkier. So now with the A7rII being able to focus Canon glass better, I'm considering getting rid of those two zoom lenses, with the 24-70mm as a walk around lens and primes for better results. I will get either the Loxia 21 or the Batis 25mm, I'm still not sure which.

    As for prices, here the best price you can find online is 3545.- CHF with the 8% VAT included. Aka given the actual changing rates and without VAT 3265$. The official Sony price is 3599.- CHF VAT included. I paid mine 3190.-CHF (aka 2938$ without VAT) because it was supposed to be a showroom model and they made me a 10% rebate. In fact it was really like new. It didn't even have the date and time memorized. But it has only a one year warranty instead of two (I suspect that it was a grey import rather than a showroom model). Anyway, I'm very happy with it and don't think that I will need another camera for a while. Nor do I expect the prices to go down as fast as on the previous model.

    I have been screening some of my old Pentax and Hassy glass for candidates to use on a new Pentax 645z that is on the way. Here is a crop from a shot using the Pentax-A 45mm f/2.8 at f/8 on the A7RII with adapter. Seems to have good sharpness on center so may go into the potentially usable category for now. Click for 100% crop from original file.

    I believe that you'll be happier with the size of the Loxia than the Batis so maybe that's the way you should go.
