p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Sony A7r some full resolution test shots


Hey fellow pixelpeepers, i have some pixels for you

Last Friday I tested some of my legacy lenses on a Sony A7r.

It was a preproduction camera, running Beta software.

I used a tripod, 2 sec. selfrelease and shot extrafine jpgs. I forgot to turn lens corrections off for the zeiss FE.

The setup wasn't optimal but I think the results are interesting none the less

Links to the sets:
Sigma 24/2.8
Carl Zeiss Biogon 2.8/28
Minolta MD 2.8/35
Canon FD 2/35
Carl Zeiss Planar 2/45
Carl Zeiss FE 1.8/55
Minolta MC 58/1.2
Samyang 85/1.4
Minolta MC 2.5/100
Minolta MD Macro 4/100
Minolta MD 2.8/135
Minolta MC 4/200

The crops of the images and the full images may be posted an discussed here but before you use them anywhere else please ask me.

If you spot any mislabeling or mistakes please report them here.

I have to thank http://www.systemkamera-forum.de/ for letting me use their camera. A comment in german can be found here: Manuelle Objektive an der Sony A7r

thanks so much for showing these!

the contax g 45 looks like it performs as it should, though your adapter looks to be a little off (bottom right corner looks worse than the others).

new 55/1.8 looks pretty awesome too.

also, it looks like you didn't refocus between shots (understandable given the time frame ). the rokkor 58/1.2 shot is much sharper at f/1.2 than at f/2 pesky focus shift.

Thanks for taking the time, Phillip. I am now even more excited about my FDs and Minoltas.

Would you check the f1.8 and f2 pictures of the FE 1.8/55 please? (as if the f1.8 upper left corner looks sharper than even the f2.8)

exif info indicates that most of 55/1.8 shots are mislabeled. f/5.6 was actually at f/4, f/8 was actually at f/5.6, etc while f/1.8 was actually f/11 and f/2 was actually f/1.8.

Maybe in another thread Phillip might want to talk about handling etc and especially focussing all these lenses. Curious to know if the manual lens focussing experience is more productive / accurate than in prior Sony cameras.

did you not like manual focus one the previous ones? i've not found any camera i liked better for manual focus than the NEX-7.

The 28 biogon looks pretty useless to me.

Shame about the Biogon! I thought those problems were supposed to be when you got down into the, say, 21's. Guess now I understand more why people fret so much over it.

My time was pretty limited but the camera felt like a Nex. Manual focusing works really well with the Nex-6 and was the same with the A7r, Viewfinder and Display seemed a little better.

I wasn't able to make use of all the controls in the short time but they felt good and I am sure they will be great for actual usage.

the sigma surprised me the most, I payed 30 for it and it seems to give good resolution even in the corners.

Thanks Phillip! The G45 and FD 35 look good across the frame starting at f/5.6. Glad to see this. Is your 35mm FD the nFD model?

Well, crop to APS-c and you have the nex-7 of your dreams. I think you could get an M8 crop pretty easily.
