My new 100-400mm came late in the afternoon, so I've only had a chance to take a few junk shots, but it seems razor sharp. Looks like it should be an amazing lens.

Looks sharp! Nice blur on the cat image.

Starting to go all in on Sony. I have the Batis 25 and recently added the FE 50/1.8 and now I’m waiting for the arrival of the FE 85/1.8. I’m still trying to sell the Batis to cover and replace it with the FE 28/2. Figure a budget 3 lens kit will be just fine.

I have the A7R ii with me pretty much all the time and caught this gem out in public. Don’t see many of these around. I did the assembly line for the A123 battery pack back in 2010.

Got in the CY 35-70, surprising feature, the macro function(didnt research enough), close enough for flower shots and that Zeissness feels all there. It does have the flare issues that the 100-300 has (which I suspected before I bought), other than that, this thing seems pretty sharp even wide open.

^ Looks good to me Charlie. How much was that? Which adapter are you using?

Another image from Sope Creek Paper Mill Ruins. Two image focus stack with the Laowa 12mm. No blue sky that late afternoon. Just a warm glow from the afternoon sun. Let me know if you find it distracting. I thought about cropping some of the top.

got it from a usa seller on ebay for 400 or so (didnt want to risk returning to a japan seller), near mint/mint condition. Smaller than I anticipated, but still a little longer and thinner than the 24-70 f4.

using the K&F concept adapter, absolutely rock solid compared to other inexpensive dumb adapters. Downside is that the inside is pretty shiny, so I had to flock it. For now, it seems like a miniature 100-300 in terms of IQ, and about half the size. The macro function is at the 35mm side, which is odd, but worked fine for flowers, I'm not the biggest macro shooter, however, having a close focusing lens in the field is nice.

I had no plans on using it to shoot my kids, but did anyhow, and looks pretty good if you've got light. Will likely stick with primes for that.

Sounds good Charlie. Looking forward to your shots from it.

You can't visit Atlanta without shooting at Jackson Street Bridge. Sunset was a bust but we got nice movement in the clouds to go with the light trails. This was captured with my 6 Stop ND filter and the SR app (16 count I believe). Tricky location to shoot because the bridge moves slightly with passing cars and the lamp posts on the sides can screw up your composition.

Very nice cityscape! Wow!

Going through a ton of portraits I took. I feel like I am starting to get the hang of how to light things...Still not quite super comfortable though.

Btw, Vinz, thanks for the PSD file on that edit. I have not had a chance to look at it yet, but will do so this week.

Got the wifey to pose with some props over the weekend. 3 light setup (Beauty dish camera left, reflector camera right, and a separate gelled speedlight for the background).

Both pics with the FE 24-70/4.

my first landscape test with the 16-35F4. How do you keep the blue skies from banding? i edit in 16bit but still.

Vinz, you can add a little grain in Lightroom or Adobe Camera RAW before exporting. Usually if you have clouds you won't get banding but it happens with clear blue skies
