Eric, thanks for that link. As a specialist night photographer reading what Scott wrote made me very grateful I'm still using my 5D2.

FWIW, I take long exposures 30s+ all the time (D800... not E), and I've never encountered this issue.

I just set up and took a quick 60s shot of my bedroom door (haha) and wasn't able to see any problems.

EDIT: I guess i should have read it more thoroughly. His problem was that he didn't shut the viewfinder shutter (that was what I actually suspected initially, haha), and he figured that part out.

I'll test for the white spots later. For little white noise, I don't think the problem is unique to Nikon. Most DSLR's have long exposure noise reduction for this purpose, and you just have to decide whether or not you want to deal with it. The bright hot spots are a concern though, and I'll look for those.

Thanks for the link.

It is hard to take his "issues" seriously.

First, he didn't know that he had to close the viewfinder when using ND filters. Light leak through the VF is a problem also with Canon cameras.

Finally, he refuses to use in-camera NR of long exposures. Good luck finding a camera that does not show hot pixles with long exposures without black frame subtraction.

I have been testing the A7R with the Astrotrac. I will update the review with my findings.

Hey, isn't that Sean O'Connell?

I thought he only shot film.

I read elsewhere that live view focusing on stars is more difficult than a canon full frame. That's just one person's opinion. Would like to see more test this out.

I recently did night photography both with my 5D MkII and the Sony A7R (with 14/2.8 II lens). Precise manual focusing in the dark with the A7R was much easier through the EVF.

I went out for meteor shower shooting with A7R - it's not any more difficult to focus than Canon. Besides, I just set the lens to infinity. I did see potentially more chromatic aberrations around each star, but I haven't finished reviewing all the samples to make much of a conclusion.

In the photo below, a lot of stars appear blue, as I haven't had a chance to correct chromatic abberations around them. But, I really liked the result. With 5D2 I may get the Milky Way band, but not the colors.

That's a nice shot Claw. You have to find some darker skies away from civilization.

Your meteor shot looks like mine! Haha. I took images for 2 hours hoping to stack a composite and see the radiant. Well, it was still a good night out nonetheless.

Only my voigtlander 20mm had a hard infinity focus. Everything else needs precise focusing with live view, then I put gaffer tape on the focus ring.

I didn't have the 5D2 for very long, but the 5D3 probably is similar and gives great milky way colors. The initial shots don't look like much, but you have all the data there to bring it out in post.

I ordered the metabones mark 4 from B&H for my A7r and the TS-E-24II.

The first one I received mounted so tight on my 24-105 and 40mm pancake I asked for a return.

When I received the second it was worse than the first. After putting it on and off several different lenses multiple times - it got to the point where it was a little bit easier, but under no condition would I recommend you attach the adapter to the camera before attaching the lens as you might damage your camera.

In no way does this adpater's lens attachment mount appear to be well made or similar to any other adapter I have used.

How's the camera at low ISO levels compared to 5d3?

Definitely not worse - what I really like is that you can select from more low ISO numbers on the A7(R) - ISO 50, 64, 80, 100 for example. Ideal for long exposure shooting.

They both are great. I'm sure you could run tests or find them already done with a google search. But it won't matter in the end....
What you'll notice is the increased resolution of the A7r and how much you can, if needed, push the shadows to avoid blending bracketed shots (at times). It is quite nice for landscapes.
