Friday I had confirmation of my refund for the R. Tonite I celebrated with a new backup body for my now beloved plain A7: it's about the same size, and loves tiny wide angle lenses. Starts with "M" and ends with: "9". Smile

Bit more lens porn, I bought the A7 (with the kit lens as it was only available as a bundle Sad) last week and while I wait for some adapters to arrive I've got this radioactive Super-Takumar 50mm f1.4 bolted to the front. Haven't had chance to shoot much outdoors with it yet, but will post results when I have!



Great to have found a forum full of manual lens enthusiasts! Smile

Ah! Thanks, I was wondering where I'd gone wrong. Guess that serves me right for trying to show off in my first post Smile

I know how you feel about waiting for adapters. I knew I was going to buy an A7 and often thought about getting some adapters ordered first but in the end I just pressed the 'pay' button and now I'm left twiddling my fingers and twitching occasionally.

Which adapters are you waiting for, and which lenses are you looking forward to using the most? For me it's got to be the Nikon 35mm 1.4 and Canon FD 50mm 1.4 Very Happy

Leica R,Canon FD,Nikon Ai(s),Minolta MC/D and Konica AR.
Looking forwards to using the medium teles like the 105mm Nikkor and the 85mm FD. Also the 57mm Hexanon which I'm currently using on the Xpro-1 but I'm wanting to use them at their 'real' focal length for the first time on digital.
My eyes aren't that good really and focusing is a touch difficult, hopefully Sony will help me out sufficiently.

I have focus peaking set to mid+red and I've turned on high-quality mode for the EVF which makes it super easy to focus manually even wide open on the Takumar 50/1.4

When I had the X-Pro1 I found the lack of peaking initially quite difficult, then in August's firmware the addition was a nice touch but it's a million miles from how good it is on the A7. You'll have very few problems focussing your collection dead-on Smile

Excellent news then, for what it's worth I think the Xpro-1 is a fantastic camera, I swapped it for an Epson RD-1 I had,also an excellent camera with my favourite control layout but I just couldn't use my slr lenses on it to any degree of satisfaction.
More reason to fidget endlessly then......... Laughing

Minolta MD 50/1.4 wide open, ISO6400
Lens has very soft and dark corners on FF @F1.4, it was much better when used on 1.5x crop NEX there which was using it's sweet spot

MF is really fantastic on the A7. I've been shooting skiing with 135/150/200s, peaking on high and it works great, even at wider apertures.

That's 5cm Elmar @f/3.5

OM 200/5

For landscape I turn off peaking and use mag.

The only silly thing is you turn the wheels alot to move the box. We should have "cursor speed" adjustement Smile

A7 is by far the most fun camera I have owned.

Just saw this thread after starting my own thread... I'm deleting that and joining this:

Contax 35/1.4 and 85/1.4 on A7R. Really enjoying this combo -- camera and lens around my shoulder, the other lens in my coat pocket. A few photos -- should be obvious which is 35 and 85. Smile

A few from Beijing:

LucisPictor..can you spot the difference? Yes one is cheap plastic,the other is expensive.

Here are some from me.

Got the A7 to use all my Pentax K mount and M42 lenses on FF.
All of a sudden, its like I got a fresh set of lenses all over again Smile

with CV lenses in M-Mount it would really be stupid (don't have them, already sold the last one).. but since I use the A7 with LAE-A adapter and AF lenses too.. it works really good for me and my weird hands Razz

Thats a very good showing from the Samyang 14mm.
Seems to me its one of the cheapest and good options out there (and widest) for a UWA on the A7 at this point.
