Hi all, I just bought 3 Rokkor lenses and adapter for my A7. 50/1.4, 135/2.8 and 45/2 "pancake" . Could you recommend any ultrawide lens and telephoto lens? And maybe fisheye?
btw great photos I found in this thread,I hope I'll add some soon too. Still waiting for adapter.
For telephoto I have the 400 f/5.6 APO and it is a very good lens. It is reasonably sharp (but you can find other lenses that are sharper) and has fantastic colour with no colour fringing that I have ever seen. For the focal length it isn't that big or that heavy. If 400mm is too long you might also look at the 200 f/2.8, which is reputed to be an excellent lens. Neither of these lenses are as cheap as the ones you bought, but compared to their AF counterparts they are still a good bargain.
For ultrawide there is a 17 f/4 and a 21 f/2.8 as well as a 16 f/2.8 fisheye. I haven't used any of these lenses and don't know how they stack up against others but they are out there. I did own the 24 f/2.8 at one point and it is very sharp in the centre and excellent for close up work, but the corners don't sharpen up until f/11. It has a bit of CA, but it isn't too bad. I thought it was a very nice lens.
