From memory it was about 4 deg C without any wind chill.
A fabulous country - this was on the Reykjanes Peninsula to the west of Reykjavik.

Here's a quick 3-horizontal-handheld-frames pano stitched in PSCC and shot with ZCN 24-85 (at 24) and a7R2. My wife in the kitchen said something about interesting light in the backyard, I walked out the front door, came back quickly to grab my camera and bingo!, there it was.


FWIW, the fringer adapter arrived today--rather quickly--and I'm still trying to get manual focusing running well with the a7R2. More later.

Here's another shot with the a7R2, (borrowed) Kipon adapter (which seems to have disappeared from the marketplace) and, this time, the 70-200. There's certainly nothing artful about this--I just like the way it looks. These Zeiss lenses certainly have personality, huh?!?!

Hey guys,
I ordered a second kipon adapter, but it still freezes my a7 often. It doesn't seem ISO, shutter speed or aperture related.

I updated the firmware on my a7 to version 2.0 but this didn't help.

I tried formatting my memory card, but this didn't help.
I am shooting on "A" mode. Also tried shooting full manual to no avail. I am adjusting aperture by the wheel directly right of the "C2" button while the lens is set to 1.4. I am shooting only the 85 N. I couldn't find any similar issue except one page on Flickr saying he

I have exactly the same problem with a new Kipon C/N-S/E E adapter on an A7R with the CN 24-85. Can get 2-3 shots off and then it freezes. Wait a few seconds and try again or yank battery to reset. A very unpleasant shooting experience. It is going back to Adorama. Exposure, focus and exif recording are fine when it works, but just not reliable.

Jeffrey, are you still using the a7r2 in combination with the two Contax-N zooms? With the Fringer adapter? If so, what can you say about it? I'm thinking of going with those lenses on the a7r for a backpacking/hiking/landscape setup and would appreciate any thoughts.

I used these two ZCNs with the fringer on the a7R2 for months. The combinations worked very well, but I tired of the Sony's clunkiness and bulk (w/batterygrip, which made it large enough to hold) and now shoot a Pentax K-1 system including three Zeiss ZK-mount manual-focus lenses.

Okay, thanks for that update. I'm not personally in the market to switch systems, so I'll keep pondering the sony/contax-n combinations...

@ Jeffrey Behr, I am very interested in the K-1 as well, could you post some of your experiences and work with the Zeiss lenses in the Pentax K-1 images thread?

"Far above Cayuga's waters" the refrain from Cornell's song and the actual scene below. Contax N 24-85 on a Sony A6300 with Fringer III adapter.

So I've picked up a Fringer adapter and both a N24-85 and a N70-200. I'm only in the preliminary stages, but the N24-85 looks very nice (especially paired with a FE16-35, where I can switch over at ~28mm).

The N70-200 is not happy with this adapter an an a7r. It doesn't autofocus, doesn't appear to change aperture, and won't even take pictures. I think I read something about this problem in my research here on FM, but now I can't find it. Can anyone point me towards the reference, or help with a diagnosis?

Thanks!

I had the same issue with my A7r, but both lenses work perfectly with the Fringer III and my A6300.
