I don't use a case/cover or strap with mine. I tend to carry it by the lens and/or adaptor with the lens pointing down

Don't worry about the thread title...photos from any a7 series camera + any lens is welcome here.

The point of the thread is to share imagery captured with a7 series cameras from any lenses, including native FE-mount lenses. I agree that a "best-practice" is to list what lens was used and even which a7 series camera was used.

i was so excited to received my FE 70-200 F4 OSS today... only to know that what the seller sent me is the FA70-200 F2.8G.... returned it. although i love the 2.8 but it won't work with my cam witthout buying adapter again. bummer!

:confused: You know the Sony 70-200 F2.8G costs $3000 and the FE 70-200 F4 costs $1500.
I would have kept it, you can get the sony adaptor with a translucent mirror which enables fast phase AF.

how long before you're back to canon :p

Canon = Hands down, the best skin tones.

Sony = Hands down, the best landscapes + nice size.

I think I'm at a good spot with one of each.

I just can't see canon ever bringing out a decent mirrorless camera, with sensor tech on par with the A7R and even of they did I bet it would be a fortune. I'm hopeful that the sony works out for me as the fuji has been an expensive mistake. The resale values are shocking.

On the plus side though I'll be buying mainly canon mount lenses for the sony so if I ever do go back it won't be as big a hassle. I just can't face going back to a full size body again though

with skin tones editing using CMYK values and curves, skin tones is no longer a problem especially with the DR of sony sensors. Numbers don't lie.

AWB = Sony

I have a few dark complexion kids, and I'm pretty critical on skin tones. I'de rank skin tones Canon FF > Canon APS-C > Sony FF.... With the lighter skinned kids, I can work it fine with the sony, but the darker skinned kids, it's borderline disaster. I cant imagine ditching canon for that reason. It just happens that the 6D is pretty decent at landscapes, but sony is clearly better for a few reasons. Great thing about having a DSLR is that I can do landscapes one second, and jump right to incidental wildlife or even portraiture.

My daily point and shoot is going back to DSLR (could be mirroless if canon provides). Going to keep the sony strictly for landscapes. Pair it with the 16-35F4IS, and the detail is just shocking.

sony scores better in portraiture test scores, but proof is in the pudding. I care about results more than I do about scores. If I can get canon skin tones on a sony cam, I would make the sony my main point and shoot. it's small, discrete, and I'm perfectly fine with manual focus. I'm happy with nifty fifty and vivitar 135mm in size... their tiny and light. I just cant get the skin tones right unless I'm shooting low iso.

I did a test, same lens, same white balance, same exposure:
