  1. Shot from the Indiana side of the Ohio river. Stack of 4 shots, 1/4-2 sec, f/5.6, ISO 100
  2. Usually I'd use the A7r2 for landscape shots, but on this trip I figured I might do some street photography, and so I took the A9 instead. Founds some fun abstract shots shooting buildings straight up. With the no-blackout viewfinder, 20fps, and the focus point joystick, I find the A9 to be the best all around Sony camera.
  3. Hi all! New Sony A7RII owner here. I am looking for recommendations for a tele zoom to be used only on the A7RII. I am pretty flexible in terms of focal length and speed, and mostly interested in optical performance as well as price. Size matters, but it is not the most crucial factor. Basically, I wish to find a fairly affordable lens which gives a flat field and good, even sharpness across the frame, at least at f/8-11, preferably at f/4-5.6, too. The focal length range should cover at least 100-200mm, over 400mm is definitely not needed, and down to even 28mm range is a nice option (as long as the 100-200mm performance is strong). As the mirrorless Alpha system opens so many possibilities and my requirements are not dictated by the numbers on the lens barrel, I am quite at lost. In this focal length range, I have previously used pretty much all the Canon L zooms and many of the 70-300 type consumer lenses in EF mount. I have no experience on their performance on this new body, and I no longer even have access to any of those lenses. For adapted lenses, I anyway prefer a solution that is usable with a dumb adapter ring (Canon EF isn't). The intended use for the lens is mainly tight landscapes and cityscapes. I therefore require the 100-200mm focal length range, and sharpness across frame is very important. May print really big sometimes, and will definitely view big at 4k resolution (and higher as soon as available) including crops. I will certainly use the lens also for detail shots, portraits, and some wildlife and sports. However, sports and birds in flight etc. are no priority, and this need not be the most flattering portrait lens either. Manual focus is just fine, and I currently mostly use MF lenses. Lens speed is secondary, but an f/2.8 lens is interesting. I prefer constant aperture, but it's not a major consideration (and does not rule out the 28-200 type zooms, if there are good alternatives out there). Tripod ring on the lens is good to have, but not a requirement. I travel a lot, walk around and do plenty of hikes, so small size is nice. My initial thought therefore is buying two lenses for this tele-zoom-for-landscapes purpose: one good smaller lens, and one bigger lens with higher performance. If a single lens gets the job done, this allows spending more on it. The short-term budget is perhaps about 1000 EUR/USD (for one lens), but I really don't mind going cheap. I don't think I will spend more than 2500 EUR/USD for the one or two lenses combined, and I may not have that much right away. Good adapter should be included in the price, if it isn't a native lens. I have some adapters, but they may be too flimsy for large and heavy lenses, and I have not tested them on the full-frame body so far. In summary, what's your recommendation for: - Tele zoom covering at least 100-200mm - Sharp across the frame - May be native or adapted - May be AF or MF - As small and light as possible (optical performance more important) - Should not cost much more than 1000 EUR/USD (with high-quality adapter)

  12. Hello, I am looking to upgrade from a Nex 5n that I have had for a few years. The 5n works pretty well, but I have been having some minor issues with it and the 16.1 megapixels is too small for enlarging prints to the size I like. I am considering upgrading to the a6000 or the a7. Thoughts? I mostly shoot landscapes and cityscapes. I have both the Sony 18-55 and 55-210 lens from the 5n; any other lens you recommend. Thanks so much!
  13. After a somewhat accidental visual find one day, I have been pursuing a new perspective in shooting the old architecture of Knoxville, TN. The goal is to 'flatten' the three dimension look of a scene by compressing the DoF in hopes of confusing the viewer of what's in front and behind, etc. Seemed to work well enough that I have shot a series of them - this is one of the first ones. I think I used my Bower 35mm - getting no EXIF data is a real pain! Anyway, I'll post some more later...
  14. Hi everyone, this is my second full thread here. The last time, I posted thread about landscape photography of lake Baikal during winter. This time, I will share my works from my two Japan trips during last autumn (around late October to early November last year) and summer (around late July this year). . . I processed all of my works by using adobe photoshop and/or adobe photoshop lightroom. . . All of my gears using during these two trips are as following; Sony A7 Sony A7s Sony Vario-Tessar FE T* 16-35mm f/4.0 ZA OSS Sony Vario-Tessar FE T* 24-70mm f/4.0 ZA OSS Sony FE 70-200mm f/4.0 G OSS Sony Sonnar FE T8 55mm f/1.8 ZA Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8 L II USM (with Metabones Smart Adapter EF to E mount Mark IV)……I used this lens during the autumn trip due to the FE 16-35/4 was just launched and I didn’t own one. . .

  15. Hi guys, Allow me to share a few of my shots that I recently took in NYC. These shots were taken with a sony a7rII and the loxia 21mm lens. Hope you enjoy them and please feel free to comment (constructive critics are accepted). Also if you are interested in checking out more of my work, here's a link: my 500px account
