Nice light in that first one Ronny.

Charles, I like your shot of the surfer and the birds on the beach. It's nice to read your thoughts about the A7S, because I'm contemplating adding this camera to my A7. It fixes a few things I dislike about the A7:
- It has the ability to shoot totally silently.
- It focuses to -4EV.
- It doesn't have the sensor reflection issue.
The very good ISO performance is a nice bonus.
What's still holding me back is the 12MP and the price (paying a premium price for video features which I never use). I shot with the Canon 5D for years and 12MP wasn't a problem, but I got used to more now.

Totally agree, I was never impressed with the high iso performance of my A7. ISO 3200 is the highest I'd go, 6400 doesn't cut it for me. If all 3 models were released at the same time last year, I would probably have bought the A7S. I hate the loud shutter too, have been yelled at several times on the street. To be honest I find the sensor reflection issue unacceptable, AFAIK both the A7 and A7S have a low pass filter - so they did manage to fix it? The only reason why I'm not trading my A7 for an A7S is because I'd make a huge loss on the A7...

btw Charles, thanks for mentioning the flimsy sd-card door. I thought it was me, oftenly find it open in my bag... so I can blame the door?

Trying out a 10mm extension tube on the "mini Otus". Not quite in the real macro range, it is more like 1:2, I would say but it performs just fine in that range.

Yes, I think the shutter is too loud for street shooting. People really notice you. I've never had that problem with m4/3 cameras. It's one of the main reasons why the A7S interests me.
It seems like Sony really fixed the sensor reflections. It's mentioned in this review: A7S review

Wilhelm...
You finally got your Contax 35-70!! Congrats...
Look forward to more pics from you! I'm telling you, it's made for the A7's! Taking mine to Hawaii best week for 2 weeks. I'm planning on it being my main lens while I'm there.

Wilhelm, I absolutely hate you! For at least 5 seconds. I owned a C/Y 35-70 and it rapidly became the lens I loved to hate. Not the IQ, but using it was such a pain. I had totally gotten over it, and now you come up with such a cracking shot. Go away!

Thanks for the link Derek! Interesting!
Philber...the 35-70 is only a pain with a CPL...I'll let you know how frustrated I get while using it in Hawaii, with CPL!!
I recently had a Leica Vario Elmar 35-70/4 Macro, which is supposed to be the holy grail of 35-70's, and while it was pretty incredible, I actually preferred the Contax more! It's probably my best and close to my sharpest lens overall!!

Gregg, what killed me was: in order to focus, because it is not the fastest lens, I opened it wide, then stopped it down. Then I would change focal length to adjust composition, and the d*****d zoom isn't parfocal, not even close, so I ahd to open it wide again, refocus, stop it down. It just bore me down. But, as I said, the IQ is awesome for a zoom, so no quarrels here. Now that was with a 5DII. Maybe with a mirrorless and peaking it would be better... Anyway, have fun, Hawai is such a gorgeous place!

Some small steps out of the comfort zone. No location which I had shot before (okay the sheep excluded, they were on the way) and only one lens at f/16. I discovered a beautiful spot 100m away from my daily commute to uni.

That 12MP is an issue for me too. I have a D800E (36MP) and D3s (12MP) and find the A7 is just perfect at 24MP. If I had to choose to go either of the other ways it is definitely 36MP.

No denying how well the camera does in skilled hands though !

Love that you're changing it up. Your images still have a distinct signature (other than the border) and I knew that they were yours without looking at the username. First one is my favorite, love your sheep photos for some reason.


Navydoc -- In your pictre of the bench infront of the brick building reflecting, I was wondering what that effect is called. I know it's not 3D or gloss, but I've seen it in some other images as well. Would you be willing to share your PP secret?

This one






If anyone else knows what that "look" is called please feel free to share. Trying to find other pictures with the same effect.
