    Sony Showcase Sony A7 and 7r Image thread

    I thought I would put some more samples in this thread of macro photography using new Sony FE 90/2.8 The more I use the lens the more I realise what a damn fine piece of kit it is. Sure, it is heavy but I have now understood the various feature a lot more. The focus limiter and the OSS are...

    Ricoh New GR Apparently

    I can't fault the current version of the GR so I'm not in a hurry to upgrade. This is the camera I take with me most of the time that I am 'wandering' about. One of the best camera products on the market today which for newcomers just got a little bit better. LouisB

    Sony Showcase Sony A7 and 7r Image thread

    Thanks. I would wait a little. After the main demand slows down, early next year I reckon the price will drop significantly, just like the A7R which can be bought (relatively) for peanuts, now. I actually bought my A7R s/h for a knock-down price. It serves me well but I would like the better...

    The Ricoh GR is a master of stealth photography.

    Sony Showcase Sony A7 and 7r Image thread

    Fat pixels (A7S) and the Elmarit 90/2.8. Quite a challenge to get the focus spot on - which it is in the first photograph and only slightly out in the second. That said I think the second has more character even if it isn't pixel perfect.

    Spitalfields in London. Must say I am beginning to like the FE24-70 - especially the OSS - with the A7r. This was shot at 1/40 and f4 and certainly in the centre is very sharp.

    Sony Zeiss Loxia 35/2 Biogon T* lens for Sony E Mount

    Yes and there are many fine exemplars of a whole range of legacy lenses from wonderful manufacturers past and present. It really is a very good platform. I could have carried on using my M-Summicron 35/2 but I do like a dedicated lens and the exif features are very handy indeed. LouisB

    Sony Zeiss Loxia 35/2 Biogon T* lens for Sony E Mount

    SnapDawg, I am not a great fan of the FE 35/2.8. In fact I was very disappointed with mine and sold it because I just didn't want to shoot with it. It had little character but incredible sharpness. I suspect the forthcoming FE 28/2 will be as good but at a much more realistic price point and...

    Sony Zeiss Loxia 35/2 Biogon T* lens for Sony E Mount

    Thanks, all for the comments. To specifically answer El Guapo, the focus throw is long. It definitely requires you to turn twice to get from infinity to closest. This is not such a big deal for me as I mainly shoot landscape and on infinity but if you are street shooting and moving from near...

    Sony Zeiss Loxia 35/2 Biogon T* lens for Sony E Mount

    It is horses for courses. If you want to shoot with an Alpha body you really are without much choice until the new 35/1.4 comes along. Mind you, that looks like one helluva beast of a lens - certain not pocket sized at all. Thanks for the comment LouisB

    Sony Zeiss Loxia 35/2 Biogon T* lens for Sony E Mount

    Last week I took delivery of my 5th M-mount lens, a last version Leica Elmar 50/2.8 to use on a Sony A7r. I've owned this lens 3 times (when will I ever learn!). I love it for its simplicity and beautiful out of focus rendering at f2.8. I was intrigued though to compare how it performed...

    Thanks. Yes, the 35/2 has been a great addition. When I owned a M8 my range was really 35-50-90 and I now have the 35/2, Elmar 50/2.8 and Elmarit 90/2.8 - all of which seem to work well on the A7/r. A month or so ago curiosity got the better of me and I purchased a s/h A7r to see whether it...

    Best camera / focal length for street photography - your help needed.

    I would have thought that one constant for street photography is a wide angle lens. Often you have to tell the story of the photograph with some context around it and it is hard to see how anything less wide than a 35mm will allow that. I have always said that if someone produced a camera with...
