My first weekend with a7. I am starting to get used to the ergonomics and manual focusing. Peaking and magnify in the viewfinder make it much easier.

To start the ball rolling:

Princess Pier, or what remains of it. Port Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

A7r with TS-E 24L II. 25s @ f/8, ISO 50.

Shadowblade - great thread idea - I've been anxious to see some pics with these new Sony's - esp ones using Canon lenses with adaptors.

Your pano shot is terrific - I also have the 24TS-E II - is it awkward on the Sony body?


Canon 5DS-R
Canon 24-70MM II
Canon 180MM f/3.5 Macro

Just a quick question guys, with the metabones adapter, how slow are the Cnaon lenses on A7' bodies, AF wise?

Thinking of getting a Canon 135L for the A7.

Very slow... I returned my Metabones adapter. Instead I just bought the "KIng" brand AF adapter from ebay to use with my EF lenses. If King's AF speed is somewhat similar to Metabones (I just hope it's not slower than Metabones), I'm saving a big chunk of cash. $160 VS $400.

Well, i feel i can't wait to pull the trigger to buy this sony body, and i was thinking about the mount adapter, but i am planning to use my TS-E 24II lens with this and maybe later in the future TS17 too if i buy that, so i really don't care about AF as those lenses are manual.

But if i will use some lenses such as 16-35L and 24-70L, how those are compared for AF and IQ? Is Sony own lens 16-35 better than Canon ones? also their 24-70 compared to Canon? mostly i don't need fast AF when i shoot landscapes and still subjects so i can leave with that, anytime i want a king of AF then i have 1DX.

I have not kept up with these new Sony cameras.
What is it that the A7 or A7r offers that Canon doesn't?

Just curious.


When you see my camera gear you'll think I'm a pro.
When you see my photos you'll know that I'm not.

I'm not an owner, but I've been watching with interest.

They're FF mirrorless and they give you plenty of room for adapters - just about any 35mm lens type can be accommodated without compromising the FoV of the lens.

Great sensor.

The in-camera dynamic range majiggery looks really interesting. Looks similar to adding fill light in PP, but have not heard how they compare directly as far as noise and whatnot.

Bottom line AF with EOS adapted lens is VERY VERY SLOW. But Very very accurate. Sounds like it will work fine for you. Focus is fine and plenty snappy with Sony FE glass.

Slow, but very accurate - much more accurate than phase detection on a Canon body. You wouldn't want to shoot action with it.

But, then again, it was never designed nor marketed as an action camera - it's a non-action camera designed for the highest possible image quality. If you want to shoot action, there are better options available.
