80lux from last weekend. All WO.
I continue enjoy the fine process through bright OVF and ‘shallow DOF’

Shoot these at f2.8 will ruin everything for me. IMHO

BLUE

BLUE <-- Yesss!!!
Shoot these at f2.8 <-- yes again!
I continue enjoy the fine process through bright OVF <-- Similar, but through EVF with 10x magnification!

Great shots Michael.

Coffee break with Lux-R 80.

definitely don't miss the OVF for focusing at f/1.2~f/2

Very nice set Michael. I love the blue and shallow DOF! I agree, nothing beats a bright OVF for accurate focus. Using an EVF really sours the overall experience (and accuracy) for me.

that is definitely the last thing I want do when I shoot portrait.
But at huangshan, I pretty much have to rely on it with A7 and 80-200. I hold high regard on this for people’s shooting preference.

But for me, the difference is not even small. I am 90% sure my image will be different with EVF. I need connect with real world instantly to engage myself. I don’t want any delay from shutter, EVF, LCD or anything else…

100% in-focus is given the priority to get the moment ‘right’ for my family shots. Only OVF and D700’s shutter response give me that….

Michael, images 1 & 4 have the 'je ne sais quois' effect, so well done.

Great work elsewhere in the thread too.

Note to Gregg, if you get the opportunity again, I'd like to see a b&w image study of only the old and young hands on the laptop, I liked the juxtaposition in the originals posted, so well seen.

Had some interesting experiences with my R lenses on the Sony A7 last weekend. I noticed that I was getting some really bad light leaks just taking normal shots. No long exposures or anything.

Realised that the light was getting in around the lens release mechanism between the adapter and the lens. The way the R lenses are designed, where you can see the locking tab right on the edge of the lens means that light gets in. I guess this is why the Elmarit 60 1:1 adapter has the big lip around the outside that covers the aperture ring and that whole mechanism.

It seems that even the $140 Metabones adapter doesn't have anything extra here. Has anyone else had similar issues? It only happens if I was taking photos with the sun or light source pointed at that side of the lens.

The Sony A7 seems to be prone to light leaks as Roger Cicala test and post:

It defeat the purpose to use a sub standard camera with superior glass.

Yes, there is this issue with some LR-NEX adapters, Metabones in particular. However, Novoflex adapters do not seem to exhibit this problem, and newer Fotodiox adapters appear to be all right as well. I've got all three, and the Metabones adapter is the only one that has the leak issue. The newer Fotodiox adapter, if you look from inside, seems to have exactly the same release mechanism as the Novoflex (there is a metal strip that seems to block the light that might leak from the release pin hole).

I'll probably replace the Metabones adapter with either Novoflex or Fotodiox, but in the meantime I just managed to stick a piece of black tape over the release tab and it doesn't leak anymore. It's annoying, but I actually like the extra weight of the Metabones adapter in conjunction with heavier lenses (more even weight spread), as compared to the lighter Novoflex and Fotodiox. Too bad...

An interesting Norman church, with a 12th century roof, Romanesque architecture and a series of wall paintings from the 12th - 15th centuries. The last time I visited here an exterior wall had been lime washed in a 'mustard' colour, this time pink was the colour, euugh .... The yellow flowers are wild Daffodils (Narcissus pseudonarcissus), the county flower of Gloucestershire and the surrounding area is known as the 'Golden Triangle' for the spring display.

Not the issue here. Very happy with the a7.

Interesting. Thanks. I'm just using a cheapo fotga one. Will look into the others.
