Very pretty. The overall monochromatic color is nice and the swirly stuff in the bokeh is pretty cool.
Hehe, I have plenty of negative to say about the a7* cameras. Quite often I do wonder what in the world Sony is thinking. But, nothing is perfect or complete. On the whole I remain very enthusiastic about mine.
Hope you like the FE 24-70mm OK...it gets mediocre reviews, yet it seems better in practice than the reviews would indicate. I need to give mine more use - been trying out a lot of stuff lately and have had limited time to give everything a constant workout. I'm planning to give it a lot of work tomorrow at my friend's wedding.
Speaking of lenses, I am almost really really really really really settled...............I think
. Ideally I would like to add a prime in the 85-100mm range (possibly Zeiss Makro Planar 2/100mm or Sony FE 90mm f/2.8 G OSS). And a EF 100-400L II would be a wish as well. But, at this point I am extremely pleased with my updated sig. Hope to post a few I-just-got-a-new-lens-junk-shots from my new 11-24mm later this evening. I'm pretty giddy about that one. What Canon has achieved with the 11-24mm is pretty breathtaking, imo.
Yeah. That's the main reason I ordered the 24-70 to go with the body and plan on ONLY TAKING THE ONE LENS out this weekend.
I have a habit of lugging around every lens I own (which, if you look at my sig, with the Canon gear, was heavy as hell! One of the reasons I wanted to go mirrorless).
I'm not a pixel peeper. Far from it. I want my pics to be artistically pleasing (to me, really, as I don't have an audience either). I've read the knocks on the 24-70, and I am willing to resell it down the road, once I've settled, but for now I am happy having a one-body, one-lens combination to take out this weekend while I focus on learning the body itself.
I really want to see your 11-24 samples (and hear your thoughts), even though I cannot justify a lens like that any time soon. Did you receive it yesterday? Post some samples! Are you shooting it with the Sony or the 5DIII tomorrow?
Sony A7RII and a bunch of lenses.
