I should probably mention that I shot it using an enhancing filter to bring out the greens.

Here's an in-between version:

Here it is with cooler WB, which removes the colour cast. Looks remarkably similar to the original...

Thanks! :)

Thankfully it has a remarkably level learning curve. I definitely love the way you can customize the buttons and settings, but it's missing a couple of things that make me scratch my head.

1) I'd love to be able to set my minimum and maximum shutter speeds when using auto-ISO... it's not a huge deal thanks to the exposure compensation dial working in "M" mode, but it's still frustrating that they excluded it.

2) I find it a little odd that there's no auto brightness for the LCD, but there is for the EVF... is there a reason for that?

3) I really want to be able to set my ISO increments to full stops or at most half stops, but doing so makes shutter speed and aperture do the same. On every other camera I have I've been able to set the ISO increments independently from the rest, seems odd this camera lacks it and I hate having to scroll through ISO50, 64 and 80 before even getting to 100... so naturally scrolling to say, ISO6400 from 400 takes unnecessarily long.

Minor gripes, still loving it so far over-all ;)

It is funny that they keep changing it... but this would make more sense since each a7 model has it's own picture/discussion thread now.

I'm using the Commlite adapter on mine, but I don't have any native EF or EF-S lenses to test it with at the moment. I haven't seen any strange flaring or anything yet though, and the adapter fits very snuggly, no wobbling on either the body or lens side, I'm very happy with it.

Yashica ML 50/2

Nice! Was actually just looking at adding a few more 50's to my collection, one of those was the Yashica ML (not sure which one, 1.4, 1.7, 1.9, 2 etc..).. looks nice!

Were either of those shots wide open?
