A7rII RAW file now available on SAR... ISO6400 looks OK but since I only looked with RAW therapee i cannot judge.

You can open that raw file using Sony's free "Image data converter".

From there, you can import to PS as a .tif file (a 241mb .tif file).

Love her hair on this one, Lucas!

Something different from me. Did a portrait shoot of the missus. Pretty happy with the results.

A7II - Rokinon 85/1.4

All shots wide open at 1.4. Used a softbox, camera left.

Feedback appreciated (since portraits are usually not my thing).

Looks good Nadim! Nice flattering light. Posing is on point. Maybe add a fill light to lift some of the shadows from the hat and glasses. Also, I'd stop the lens down a few stops so her shoulders and ears don't fall out of focus.

Probably better than the 5DS/R though...which, according to the digital picutre, has the same pixel level low light noise as an APS-C camera

I've been thinking about the batis 85 for a while although the size and price is a slight concern personally but I'm wondering if the lenses sony said are to be announced soon will include a sony 85mm option or not? What's the chances of sony releasing a smaller and cheaper 85 f1.8 shortly after the batis release? If they did release one I'd probably go that route instead of the batis if it performed as well as the 28 and 55 (maybe that's just wishful thinking on my part)

If AF is not an issue for you, then the Rokinon 85/1.4 is about $300 and works like a charm. I've been enjoying it quite a bit.

I think the sony zeiss strategy is to fill all the focal lengths first, anything else is secondary. They need 2.8 zooms, and after that, they're fairly complete, and should work on more affordable lenses as well has high end glass. I do like the idea of inexpensive, small, good sony glass, like the 28/2. a sony 50 and 85/100 would be great. Not everyone wants to dish out 1K for a prime.

I would be looking for AF on the 85 ( wanting my core lenses to have AF - 28/55/85). Everything else can be MF or AF assuming I manage to get into MF this time around.

Looks like it may be the batis afterall then :)

That's a good strategy actually (having a core of AF lenses).

Vello make a set of spacers for Sony E-mount, 10 and 16mm. With the a7R, no IBIS and no IS, it makes for a frustrating experience when there is a breeze outside. However here is the 55mm Mini Otus f18 with 26mm of spacer and AF. Handheld, aperture set at f11 for as much DOF as I thought might be necessary. Images are cropped at least 50 percent.

Don't suppose anyone.could post a photo of the voigt 40 1.4 sitting beside either the fe28, 35 or 55? Preferably with the adaptor fitted?

Charlie has both the CV 40 and the FE 55 if memory serves. He might have a pic.
I can say this though: The CV 40 is much smaller than the FE 55. Not even comparable. It's a rangefinder style lens. Completely different animal.

Eddie, I don't know if it's fast enough for you but the 90mm f2.8 might make a good portrait lens for you. I don't have a subject to test on off hand except my neighbors gnome. Here it is plus a link to the full sized, cropped image.

Thanks Nadim, I'm just trying to establish just how small it is so any of those lenses beside it would give me that as I'm familiar with their size. I appreciate the 55 will be much bigger. I suppose what I'm actually trying to find out is if an adapted voigt 40 is smaller than the FE 35 2.8

Gene, the 90 macro does look stellar and I've been enjoying your detail shots from it but its just too big for me as I'm really steering towards as small a setup as possible
