Gregg -- Thanks. I've been using the A7 for about a month now. Before that, my trusty 5DII. The first two shots were captured using 28mm Elmarit on A7. Last shot with the 50 lux.

Gregg - Thanks for the info on the Concourse D'Elegance. I just checked their website and the event takes place sometime in August. I would love to attend the event this year.

AG -- Congrats on your 50 cron's. Yes. The E55 takes 55mm thread. The other version (Series VI) is a little bit more complicated. If you have the original hood (Part # 12564), then you will need the matching lens hood cover (Part # 14163). Then you will also need a series VI retaining ring (Part #14160) if you were to use drop in filters.

It looks like my Series VI (1969) will have to go without a cover for the time being.

Thanks for the info. I've "tagged" those links for later reference!

Whelp...here's my first shot of my first ever Leica lens, the 50mm Summicron f/2 (cam 3)...from within my office cubicle.

I'm probably going to hell for this, but this was the only item I found that caught my eye, considering there aren't any windows in my office and I'm on the swing/graveyard shift. What looks like a window in the background is actually a roll-up door that is permanently closed. The figurine was on top of another coworker's shelf collecting dust. I "creatively" put to use a lit computer monitor screen. Straight LR 5.3 export to JPG from RAW. No crop.

My apologies for the boring photo and no offense meant. I can always remove the photo if anyone objects.

Rich...Really like the 2nd and last sunset pic! Very nice.
John...incredible shots with the 180! The color of the sky on the first is great! And love the moon shot, too!
Gregg

Took the 50 Lux out earlier this morning. And then, figured out how to shoot the Elmarit R 24, without it hitting the mirror on my 1D4...the closer to infinity, more of a chance to hit...SO, I shot close, and WOW!! I know wide portraits can be distortion heavy, but this lens ROCKS for close!!
Thanks for looking,
Gregg

I just came back from my first ever anime convention with the a7 and the 50mm Cron-R (cam 3). I've never been to such a convention and as such, I didn't quite know what to expect other than people in costume (cosplay). It ended up being not only an enjoyable experience, but an educational one at that!

Subject isolation? nah, leave that at the front door.
Busy backgrounds? Almost guaranteed!
Changing and or challenging lighting? You bet!

I think an AF lens would best perform in the busy hustle and crowded bustle of such conventions. Use of plain focus peaking was pretty much all the time allowed since focus magnification took too long and the subjects became too restless. Anyway, enough of my rambling. On to the photos!

All captured on a Sony a7 w/ Leica 50mm Summicron-R (3 cam) with ~f/2 - f/5.6 & Auto ISO.

P.S. I don't keep up with anime and the only cosplayer I recognized was the Predator. I had to google the last photo since I was

JaKo and Rich, thanks for uploading images taken with the A7r and 28

There was the brief excitement of frost and fog here early this morning, the excitement was short lived, as another Atlantic low of gales and rain arrived, sigh.
