Looks awesome ^

Wow, thatoneguy that is great! Almost looks like 2 shots combined. Excellent!

I picked up a Sony a7 on Saturday, I am digging it a lot, though I haven't used it on a hike or anything just yet. I should have some samples to share after the weekend. The Sigma 30 2.8 is probably my favorite lens on it so far, the image circle almost covers the full frame (it was made for APS-C). Anyone else picking up an a7 (or a7R)?

thatoneguy, that is an awesome shot!

Here is my favorite inversion to offer (it is a shot from the Lily Pond in Balboa Park in SD from a few years ago):


Lastly, roadtripping across the US at the end of the month, then driving up the coast to SF for New Years a few days after. Should be awesome (and I should have a lot of images to share), so far I have only resolved to snowshoe in Colorado (can't wait to see [and shoot] RMNP).

I'm waiting until next year when the sensor or a better one is offered in an A mount camera. I will def get the one without the low pass filter. I have a lot of full frame A mount glass so switching to the E mount is not an option.

I have heard that the LA-EA4 A-mount to E-mount full-frame adapter is very fast (on-par with the lenses on native A-mount). That said, it is $350 or so on top of the cost of the body ($1700 for the a7, $2300 for the a7R).

Here are two black and white shots of my sister's puppy in the snow:

Are you sure that's not a color photo of a black and white dog in snow?

Correct your WB and push it say +.3 or .7 on your snow exposure. Your snow is blue and dark.

I would be interested in A7R. I guess I need to take a couple of my lenses to the camera store. My main issue would be whether or not I loose an f stop or not. I spent the money on fast Zeiss glass for a reason. I guess I could call my Sony rep and get the low down.

Thanks, I corrected the WB, it was just an overcast day. I didn't want to push the image any further, as I liked the level of contrast there.

As for the adapter, the translucent mirror eats a 1/3 of a stop of light, just like in Sony's SLTs. Next year should see the introduction of a mirrorless FF A-mount body, though, if that is too much.

Haha, she has a pinkish muzzle in the color version of the first photo.

A third stop isn't much. I know they have a FF A mount in the works. If they release two variants like they did with the A7 I'm going the route with no low pass filter. If they don't do that then the A7R is the route I'll go. I bought an A77 earlier in the year so I don't have to jump on anything.

Probably going to grab a Sony NEX 5 with a kit lens in the next week - any prevailing opinion not to? (great price, like it when i tried it, good size)

 

Here are two recent shots I'm happy with:

I would say skip the first generation. If you can pony up the extra cash, go for the NEX-C3 or NEX-5N (or the later cameras), as the 14.1MP sensor in the first generation is nothing to write home about (I shot with an NEX-3 for a year and a half). Price in the US does not seem to be much different (the NEX-3N with the 16-50 power zoom kit lens, the newest in the 3 line, is currently USD $369.99 on Amazon). That being said, I think that a fast 50 is a wonderful lens to pair with an NEX and really helped me improve my photography (50 1.4s can be had from $50 or so shipped in the US, and then another $10 for the adapter).

If you have any other questions, feel free to PM me. I am an unabashed fan of Sony's E-mount offerings, and have looked into every camera in the line at one point or another.

Anyone have any experience with Fuji's 18 or 14mm lenses? I want to get either of those for my X-E1 but I'm not sure which.

Received this as a gift yesterday! Does anyone have film recommendations?
