I had a chance to test my new Sony a6500 attached to the FE 100-400GM + 2x tele-extender. I'm pleased to say there was no pulsing/shimmering when focusing. I used an LED continuous light panel since the feeder is in shade. This example is a 50% crop and a 1200mm focal length equivalent.

The sharpness of the FE 100-400mm GM is in a different league than the Canon model. It's just unreal how good it is.

Finally got the wife distracted and time to process photos, CY100-300 and like travis, I actually used bulb for once instead of SR. Reason being, setup would have taken too long with SR.

Xumes are extremely useful in the field, so fast changing filters. If ok with the 35mm limit and ridiculous price..... worth trying out. Never occurred to me to use a stepup ring to use the system, but I can deal with the limitation.

I have never done this before, but looking for some suggestions. This is as-yet unprocessed, but I'd like to know your preference: Do you prefer this scene with the golf cart or without the golf cart? I think I prefer the liveliness of the people/cart. If you like the golf cart, where do you prefer it?

^ David, I do like the golf cart because it helps tell the story. I think the last one works since the golf cart helps anchor that corner and helps bring nice balance to the tall tree on the right side in the background.

Speaking of gorges, has anyone visited Royal Gorge in Colorado? I'd love to take the train ride that follows the river at the bottom of the gorge some day. Here's a shot of it I took from the top where the bridge crosses the gorge. This was from my trip to Illinois and Pennsylvania.

This is a large image and was taken with a non Sony camera.

I lived in Colorado for 9 years before moving to Idaho. I kayaked the Royal Gorge many times. Super pretty and impressive canyon. There's also some fantastic whitewater upstream on the Pine creek, Numbers, and Brown's Canyon sections of the Arkansas.

Here are a couple shots from a trip to Chicago a few weeks ago. I'll prolly share a few in the next couple days. Definitely different than my usually scenery! What's funny is I kept calling the skyscrapers mountains! ;-)a

Thanks Alfredo - I'm going with that one. Now to see if I can process it into something decent. :)

Being new to the world of Sony, having shot Canon for the last 10 years. I recently swapped my 5d3 for the A7Rii just before my holiday to Orlando (nothing like jumping into the deep end). Anyway enough of a backstory here are my first few proper shots.

All I was say is that I have been seriously impressed by the detail and DR

Both shot with the fe 16-35mm f4

What do you mean by 35mm limitation?


Sony A7RII and a bunch of lenses.

The filter is quite thick, one piece on the lens, one on the filter, then the filter itself, so it's like a triple stacked filter. Due to that, 35mm and wider may vignette.

That said, if I knew better, going up a size with a step down would have worked better, but is have to run 72mm filters.... No perfect solution.
