Thank you everyone for kind comments and likes too
Michael, love your series from Suzhou, and the rich PP'ing
Edward, congrats again! Nice evening capture, and 3200ISO is no problem for the M240. I use regularly 6400 ISO combined with Nik Dfine 2.0 for banding removal, with zero NR. IMO the file quality with the M240 at 3200 to 6400 ISO is better than with the A7r. The high ISO noise with the A7r is not pleasing to the eye. As you have mentioned the just having the high ISO ability is only part of the picture, and the ability to use all of the very fast lenses, and lower shutter speeds is what makes the M's unique
I definitely prefer the younger sister with the added sophistication
Ron, another excellent set! Having portable LED's, getting the right WB is not easy. The ICE light I have is very good, and with the adjustment light level.
Joakim, really nice street set! I am liking the connection you are capturing in the images.
Joe, excellent environmental series!!! Yes, Ron and I are having a shoot out over trees between different continents.
My main system without doubt is the M240's as all the M lenses work much better IMO, and the ability to use about 1/30s shutter speed rather than 1/125s on the A7r. I tried to use like the 50 Cron Rigid DR on the A7r, and although the images were very crisp and sharp with increased DR, no amount of PP'ing to them could bring any life to them.
I sold the the RX1r, as Marisa preferred the A7r with the FE 35/55, which is the deciding factor here of course. IMO the RX1r is not as good as the RX1. I originally had the RX1 and loved the color profiles and richness of the tones. After having accidentally dropped the RX1 on its lens, insurance replaced it, and I opted for the RX1r as it was without the AA filter, and meant to identically the same sensor. I don't think the sensor is the same, as it behaves very differently, and this was other main factor for selling the RX1r as it felt very flat and with similar PP'ing workflow the files did not look the same at all!!
