My 70-200 4IS lives on my A6000 it actually is comfortable there. I didnt try the 24-105 and just sold it the 100 2.8 does not work with my comlite adaptors so that is a loss to me and the 16-35 is just so so.

I really like the TSE on the A7r and am looking at older glass to put on it .... lots of m42 screw mount lenses out there. Also saw this and thought that it could be interesting as an alternative for the TSE some day http://www.ebay.com …geName=STRK%3AM​EBIDX%3AIT (external link)

Received the Fotodiox adapter EF-NEX and had a chance to play with it briefly at lunch.
Quick observations:
1) Well made. Snug fit. No issues there on either EF side or NEX side.
2) AF works better than I expected after hearing/reading all the awful unuseable stories. Not that it's crucial to me, but I'd use it just fine on scenic shots (landscapes, still lifes, macro, whatever) which is 90% of what I do.
3) The EF lenses look and feel HUGE on the Sony A7II. It's a perception issue, obviously, but wow. The body is not that much smaller than my 6D, really. And the 16-35/4, 24-105/4 and 70-200IS/4 all look "normal" on the 6D. Slap them on the A7II with the adapter and they look MASSIVE. I've only had this Sony for a week now and I'm already used to the much smaller and lighter FE lens (not to mention the 2 old-school primes that I've been using).
Really makes me want to sell off the Canon gear.

Hello Puck,

I took all the images using the Samyang 135. The image in the middle is my Nikon 105mm F/2.5 lens. It's so tiny compared to this lens hehe.

I decided to go out today to shoot. I can't wait to shoot people with the lens, but damn is it heavy.

Yeah. The weight on the Samyang is my concern. Not exactly what I want to move into when I'm getting away from Canon and into Sony. hehe. Photos look nice though. Bokeh is very creamy.

Took the new toy out to the beach, hoping to catch some of the beautiful clouds we had all day, only to find the skies clear down there...

The A7II performed very well in high DR situations. Very clean image.

I probably misspelled it. Looked it up, Agadir, Morocco. I saw metal palm-like trees there. So, I wondered if that was where you shot the image.

This tread alone has convinced me to purchase a A7s when its price becomes more affordable. ;-)a

Took the A7S out on its first real adventure...

A trackday in my old Toyota.

Was using a Samyang 85mm F1.4, which comes out really nice:

And also a few cool shots using a cheap old Pentax mount 400mm F5.6 with a 2x teleconverter:

Yes, they A7S is really a great camera. The first camera i really dont care what ISO im using.

But i love the details i can get with the A7R too.

Both shot with CV40, first is the A7S and the second the R. The car was actually a bed which me and my girlfriend slept in: a 1964 jaguar mark10.

Picked up the FD 85 1.2 the other day

Just as good as the EF 85L, IMO...without the terrible spinning drive by wire focus ring

Pretty phenomenal for a 25 year old lens!
