  1. No. DPR Sony threads have much more relevant things. This is a zombie site.
  2. I want to delete my account.

    This site is totally useless.

      I don't want to be in their statistics. See how many 'dead souls' they already have.

      I want out.

  3. In case you think that I am a bot, I am not a bot, I am a person. I even take pictures. My education keeps me from giving an adequate description of the quality of the platform of this site but it is totally inadequate to host photographs. I do not think I will spend any more time here. I bow, I go.
  4. Get the zoom. It goes really wide. Then at 35mm, it is a normal lens. Unless you do astrophotography where the f/1.4 is good. You'll find much more use for the zoom.
  5. I really cannot tell from practical experience but I ordered the Tamron 28-70 mm after having read all the reviews and counted my money. I'll keep you posted when it arrives.
  6. Found a great operating instruction that I saved on my Evernote / Android. You can find it https://www.wimarys.com/sony-a7iii-setup-guide-tips-tricks/ The Northups also have a tutorial for the A7RIII which sort of applies to the regular A 7 III.
  7. Just an observation: The ingenious focusing system and the in-body stabilization of Sony matter more in getting sharp 'wide open' pictures than the price tag on the lens. I really like the Alpha 7 III.
  8. You are right, it is an Alpha 7 III. Canon lenses I have: 16-35 f/4.0, 24-70 f/2.8, 70-200 f/2.8 II, 24 f/1.4 I, 35mm f/1.4 I, 40mm f/2.8, 50mm f/1.2, 85mm f/1.2, Tamron 150-600 and a Tokina 17mm. Nothing much to add except a macro.
  9. I have the Jupiter 3. I tried to fix it but could not get it to focus very far. I lost interest. I like very much the 'air' in your pictures. Very unlike the stuff usually on these forums. Call it soul if you like. edit: I saw your Instagram feed. Beautiful stuff.
  10. At least you know what I am talking about. People have forgotten everything. It is a bit worrisome how good they are in forgetting. Everything can happen again if they do not remember. Your lens was for the Kiev 6x6?
  11. Mind the corners...seems that you have motion blur or DoF badly placed. Or the lens is not that sharp at 28mm? The oversaturated colors may look good on your screen but here you lose detail. I do not know how you do post-processing. I would 'up' the shadows, 'down' the highlights and then maybe put a vignette around it. Not trying to be a besserwisser but trying to give you an independent view.
  12. I warn you, those eyes will drive you to madness and beyond...😎 That's at full-open f/1.5? I love the 'nostalghia' of the shot. I got a Jupiter made in Kiev with a certificate signed from 1967 but it is more broken than I can fix. Your picture has the spirit I was after. BTW do you like Tarkovsky?
  13. After having got the 7DIII, my Canon gets less attention. I am impressed by the way I get full-open shots on the 55mm with the DoF exactly where I want. Loving it. Now as my relationship with this Sony is getting serious, I started to look for an all-around zoom to go along. No, not another f/2.8, they ruin the idea why I got 'My Little Sony' in the first place. I was impressed by the Sigma 24-105 test results but I do not want another adapter. As I understood, it only exists for Sony A-mount? Basically, I am left with four choices: I keep my Canon stuff and get the pictures I want with a decent success rate and keep the Sony with the 55mm prime. Try to make the Sigma adapter co-operate with my Canon zooms and the 7DIII. It gets clumsy. Spend more money and get the 24-70mm f/4.0 Spend even more money and get the 24-105mm f/4.0 Where I live, I cannot get my hands on the zooms unless I buy one. What opinions do you have, is the 30mm extra length worth the extra 500 dollars? Anybody's got the Tamron 28-75mm?
  14. I have an old series I Canon EF 35mm f/1.4. It is my favorite for evenings in available light. For the time being, I do not have an adapter, though a Sigma is supposed to arrive soon. Also, I ordered a Samyang 35mm f/2.8 for my Sony 7DIII. They say it is sharp and compact (something I am not) and good value. We'll see about it. What bugs me with the f/1.4 lenses is their bulk and price. I would have wanted an f/2 but the Samyang is only 1 stop away, which is not bad if it allows shooting wide open. As an old Canon user, I am impressed by the usability of the 7DIII.
  15. Now the Zony 55mm is not at all the same as the Canon EF 50mm f/1.4. The Zony you can actually shoot full open and with the exact focusing and the smooth boked your pictures will be beautiful. People see stuff through different 'lenses' of their mind. You are right you need something shorter for interior shots. I ordered the Samyang 35mm f/2.8. Not expensive. Light and compact. Counting on the fantastic Sony sensor.
