These are nice. IS that the FD 50 1.4? Do you use the same Metabones III adapter for it?

the metabones 3 won't mount FD lenses. he's stated in the past that he uses dumb adaptors (that's really all you can use with FD lenses anyway)

This is not an FD lens, it's an older Canon 50mm FL lens... It's just the regular FD to NEX adapter mounted on it...

They sure were. Something felt wrong about spending that kind of money on a f2.8 prime, but its an optically fantastic lens, and the whole set-up fits in the shoulder bag I bring to work everyday (pulled over to take these shots one morning on the way to work)

This seems like such an odd system. I keep thinking I could swing an A7, as it's the cheapest new FF body. But then all the lenses for the system (Aside from kit 28-70) are among the most expensive on the market, and relatively slow. New 70-200 is $3000!?!?

Sony shouldn't have bothered with the A7, anyone with enough money to buy their lenses can swing a A7R.

The lenses are exactly the problem for the a7/a7r.

1. there are about 4 native lenses, correct?
2. 3rd party (sigma/tamron) is just about ignoring the system, yes?

It's a shame because the bodies certainly are attractive.

.

It also let you use some ultra cheap lenses of excellent quality. I am pairing A7 with
Super Takumar 50/1.4 appx $100 / Super Takumar 55/1.8 appx $70
Super Takumar 135/3.5 - $40
Rokinon 85/1.4 - $250
MF is super easy with A7.

while true, keep in mind that brand new system.

also

1) you can use normal E mount lenses, camera will automatically crop to 12mp (a7) or 16mp (a7r), thats not bad with A7r, only 2mp less than most canon bodies, and you still get better color and more dynamic range.

2) you can use sony adapter with phase detect and use all a mount lenses.

3) you can use metabones adapter and use all canon lenses

4) because of short flange distance you can use pretty much every vintage lens you can find with ultra easy focus peaking.

so yes, while the native glass is limited, considering the caemra is only about 4 months old. what did you expect?
but its certainly not limited to usable lenses.

The camera has only been out for 4 months, so this is to be expected. That said, they are rather aggressively releasing lenses....they've already added 2 lenses since launch, and have a handful of others in the pipeline.

Also, the lenses they have released are very good optically.

so far the prime lenses are not only good optically, they are sharper then anything that Canon or Nikon can offer.

I am not a professional and it can be quite a struggle to get my 7D to focus on my constantly moving toddlers, even with AF and IS. I would love a A7R but MF would be impractical for me :eek:
