I find this interesting with a7/a7r RAW's, have not compared yet.

Frizzle, Nice colors they pop-off my screen.


This is really not a surprise. Adobe does many things extremely well but not necessarily the best at everything. RAW files will always be best converted by the camera manufacturer's conversion program ie. Canon with DPP and Nikon with capture NX and Sony with its proprietary Image Data Converter etc...

Most of us use Adobe camera raw in lightroom or photoshop because it is convenient and can convert most RAW images from many different camera manufacturers as well as post process and catalogue. And can do it quite well.

Try using DPP for your Canon CR2 files or the image converter for the Sony ARW files and you may find that it is slightly better than Adobe camera raw but probably not worth the aggravation.

I for one have tried the image converter from Sony for the A7r files and compared them to ACR in lightroom 5.3 (this is not the release candidate) and find the difference negligible. I will continue to use lightroom for my Canon, Olympus and now Sony cameras.

Happy shooting!

One of my great grandsons. Shot using the Canon 85mm f1.8 @ f2, manual focus in natural light (from the window).

The increased dynamic range is rather useful for portraits too. Took this photo in the shade, without a speedlight. The ability to get a good exposure on your subject in the shade, while managing not to blow-out the highlights in the sky and trees is pretty phenomenal.

Granted, this isn't a solution for poor quality light, but it gives you quite a bit more flexibility when trying to expose your subject in high contrast light.

Yes yes! That's it!

Right in the the face on those who say "learn to expose properly and you won't need increased DR". :)

Having more DR is great for landscapes, portraits and everything!

The 55 FE is pretty amazing on the a7R

100% crop:

From this shot:

Sorry I'm too lazy to mark the cropped area on the original photo, looking at the row of cars parked across the lower third of the frame, the crop is between the 3rd and 4th car counting from left to right.

^^ Impressive! It looks like a very sharp lens.

It's the cocktail hour.

Nice work Navy!

Thanks. Both shots were manual focused with the 1st one done using my Canon 85 1.8. The second one was shot with my 17-40 and the iso was 6400. The noise seems very uniform and cleans up nicely.
