  1. Kind of the opposite experience here. I shoot street photography and photojournalism on a Sony A7 -- I realized that it was just really hard to get a very sharp image using manual focus in situations requiring fast reflexes. I've sold most of my legacy lenses and have used the cash to get FE lenses.
  2. Also waiting for an A7s upgrade. Give me an A7s with: 5 axis stabilization internal 4k video and I'll be set.
  3. I'm slightly kicking myself for buying an A7 as an early adopter -- I paid $1800 for an A7 body at launch. Now you can easily get a refurbished A7 body for $1000 and there's all sorts of deals for new ones. I assumed (wrongly) that a top-of-the-line, full frame camera wouldn't depreciate so quickly? Or I guess it's part of Sony's strategy to keep churning out bodies so that people keep feeling the urge to upgrade?
  4. What are your favorite legacy lens options in 28mm? I've tried two on my A7: Minolta M-Rokkor 28 F2.8 - Tiny, and very sharp, but almost all lenses have 'white dots' which can spread onto the front element and cause glare/haze/splotches when shooting in bright sunlight at small apertures. Voigtlander Ultron 28 F2 - Small and fast, but suffers from corner smearing when focusing far away at wide apertures.
  5. We have a subforum to discuss adapters and a place to showcase legacy lens photos but not a place to actually discuss legacy lenses. I think it would be useful to have a dedicated legacy lens discussion forum so that we can ask questions, talk about which lenses are best, which lenses have issues, etc.
