Thanks :)

Yeah, I really got spoiled by my 6D... I had no issues shooting at ISO12800 with that camera.

I need to spend more time figuring out how to get good B&W's out of the a7R. The Fuji definitely gives me better (to my eyes) B&W files SOOC, but I'm sure I can replicate the same look once I figure out the nuances of the Sony files.

^^I really like the deep contrast on those shots Claude.

I planted these to attract hummingbirds in the Spring. I'm surprised that they are still blooming in December.

(Both shot using my a7r + 100-400L)

This is, if not a bugs eye view then at least, a lizards eye view of my new planter incorporating my old petrified wood rocks. It will look much better once it starts filling in but I liked the varied textures in this shot.

Yashica ML 50/2

It's very odd, maybe the extra resolution is just showing the flaws of the lens or something, but I noticed with this shot his teeth are super sharp, but his eyes look soft. With my 6D I don't remember having that issue at similar distance with a 50mm at f2... I'll have to get some more practice with the new camera.

I struggle with focus peaking at those sorts of apertures. Even if the peaking makes it look like the eyes are in focus I often find they are not. With magnifier it's easy (but slower).

True, and I've realized that. Turning peaking down helped a little, but with this shot I was confused mostly because in the past I found the DOF at 50/2 was wide enough at that distance to have most of the face in focus... I guess maybe I was just standing closer than I thought.

Here's another shot from the same Yashica ML 50/2

This one exhibits another strange thing... either I missed focus ever so slightly, or there was camera shake, but I'd think at 1/200s there shouldn't be any noticeable camera shake...

As I said, I definitely need more practice with the a7R, it's a very different experience from using my old 6D.

Perhaps try microadjust to see if the lens is front focusing or back focusing. I haven't read up on anything regarding how focus peaking extrapolates information from the sensor. If it is highlighting where the camera thinks where the lens is focusing instead of actual areas that are in focus, then microadjust may have an influence on focus peaking.

I've been experimenting with A7R + FE55 as the walkaround combination. For me, it is slower than using the 5DIII, but that's probably just me. I have the A7R on DMF focusing mode where I rely on manual focusing w/ focus magnifier to nail focus.

If it's in focus, it's pornography, if it's out of focus, it's art.

That shouldn't make a difference since I'm using vintage lenses and the peaking works by highlighting the areas of fine contrast I think... that's why with it set to high you'll get red dots basically all over the screen. I just need some more practice with it, I've also set peaking to medium to try that out, I had it on low before.

This lens is really hard to focus with, rarely got good results from it on my 6D, but with zoom I'm now realizing that it's actually pretty darn sharp, I just wasn't hitting focus before! :lol:

I thought I read somewhere that front and back focussing isnt an issue on mirrorless (I cant remember the technical reason why). Has the body even got miocroadjust function?
