How are you finding the 35 IS? I hope I didn't talk it up too much

I honestly don't use it.. I knew that going in 35mm was not a 'prime' focal length for me, I spend most of my time shooting wide angle with the 24L. I also picked up the 24L/50L/85L within the span on a few weeks, so the 35IS was more of an afterthought, I just picked it up due to the great price.

From the limited use it's really good, just not one I reach for that often. Though, I was walking home today from the train and shooting a bit and I had the 50ZE on the A7R and was feeling a bit constrained.. Normally I pack the 24L and 50ZE, but had a heavy laptop load in the other bag so just took the 50. I might turn it into a work-commute lens for a bit and swap it out with the 24L and see how it goes.

I just created an a7ii thread, seeing that they were being shipped out from retailers. question is.. should we have a separate thread for it? or should we bundle the two? it is after all an a7.

if you think we should keep it in this same thread, let me know and I'll delete it.

sorry I should of asked first -?  :p

I'll have my a7ii tomorrow... I'm hoping it's what I hoped the a7 to be. All around MP answer (my 5Diii was always good enough) with decent ISOs (the a7 was fine there) but w/o the ghost flare and with hopefully better low light AF. As of right now I own my own a7s and I just traded my X-T1 for an a7r so I'll have all three to play with for a few weeks. I had an a7r a few weeks ago and while I like 36mp for scapes it's not needed for me. So I'm really hoping the a7ii works out. It all depends on the ghost flare issue...

Looking forward to your thoughts! I should have my a7R tomorrow, I'm getting anxious to try it out :)

If anyone is looking for a compact, but very capable flash to complement the size of the a7r without sacrificing power and function, look into the Nissan i40.

GN40...180 degree swivel in both directions. Takes 4 AA batteries

I picked one up for a trip to Disney I'm taking next week. Extremely impressed so far.

I was looking at this flash the other day , looks a decent size.

I was intrigued by the JY-610 flash - just for indoors and at £20 I thought lets see.

I was pleasantly surprised , it can be tilted up, its tiny , only take 2 x AAs - its not "THAT" powerful at all but for bouncing of the ceiling in an indoor party and @ £20 it doesn't do all that bad.

I feel like the middle aged man who realises he doesn't need designer clothes anymore. :lol: regular clothes do nearly the same job.


Saying all that , the Nissian may be the way to go , unless Sony offer something small and not look as ridiculous as the HVL-F20M.

Looking to add Sony A7R to my Canon kit. What adaptor(s) would this group recommend for Canon to E-mount? I would ideally like to maintain connectivity, but have heard concerns by metabones users. Any advice is appreciated!

I bought the Commlite EF adapter for mine ($100), but the camera isn't here yet, should be arriving today :) I'll spend some time with it this weekend using some of my father's and friend's lenses and give my thoughts here when I'm done ;)

if you want the metabones 4 copycat, commlite (most exif works with exception of missing camera lens)

metabones 3 copycat, viltrox (most exif works, but not super accurate camera lens may show 50 F1.8 instead of EF 50 F1.8 ii)

flock the insides if you want super performance.

personally, I wouldnt pay a lot for these adapters, and no way would I pay for metabones. AF is borderline worthless with these adapters, and you really only need aperture control. AF simply wont work well unless you are using native lenses.
