  1. The before and after shots you can get from Smooth Reflections is insane. I really hope they bring these back for the new versions of the Sony A Series. (not that I can afford to upgrade yet anyway) 16 shots SR app. iso 100, @f8, 2 second exposures. Before and after shots.
  2. Samyang / Rockinon 24mm F1.4 Awesome lens. Since I moved to Sony A7mkii from my Canon 6D I am still using my Canon mount 24mm with an adapter and it is fantastic. Stars are a little out in this image as I set the shot up for the foreground, but its a great lens Arataki Vistitor Centre at Titirangi, Auckland by Gary Ashton, on Flickr
  3. Both shots are from Kiama, just south of Wollongong, Australia. Top shot is Bombo Quarry and bottom shot is called the Cathedral Rocks. I was visiting my cousin and we went out for a shoot
  4. I'm using the Samyang 24mm F1.4 mm. Getting awesome results after coming from the Canon 6D check here for samples http://www.sonyalphaforum.com/topic/4668-a7mkii-milky-way/?do=findComment&comment=23487
  5. Coming from the 6D, I'm really happy with the images I recently got with my A7mkii with the Samyang 24mm F1.4 lenshttp://_DSC7607- Pano-Edit Photoshop jpg by Gary Ashton, on Flickr _DSC7522-Pano by Gary Ashton, on Flickr
  6. Thanks for the replies guys. I definately want to stay with full frame as my main camera and will be using the a6000 as a second body. I also very much like the "see what you get" view on the rear screen evf. I do try to use this method on the 6D as well in live view, but its just not the same. Size and weight are also a big part of it too, and the size of the A7 range is very appealing. Its only really stood out since I've used the a6000 a few times. I'm really into shooting the milky way. Down here in New Zealand we have some very good dark skies within 40 minute drive of home, and the 6D is fantastic at this. I've really enjoyed manual focusing and focus peaking on the a6000, but just never seem to nail it on the 6D. I understand the Magic Lantern mod has peaking, but always a little concerned with damaging the camera with something like that.
  7. Hey guys I'm currently shooting a Canon 6D and a variety of L glass and a Samyang 24mm F1.4 for astro I recently brought an a6000 and have really enjoyed shooting with it and find myself using it more and more. I'm using the Fotga adapter on that body and it auto focus's quite ok, albeit slowly. I'm thinking of swapping from the 6D to an A7mk ii. Has anyone done this swap and if so, what were your thoughts? Any preference between the bodies? Cheers
