lol. We can take this off-line, but I'm interested in the FD 50 if you're willing to sell here.

Wives checking into bank accounts...The bane of our existence...


You still haven't told us what the new lens is, Charlie...Out with it! :)

So. I think my next purchase (sometime this week) is going to be the CV 15/4.5. I've read all the reviews. I'm going to go out on a limb and try for a small and compact UWA prime with minimal distortion and see if I can leave the 16-35 at home.

^^^^ I was watching one of those on eBay the weekend. Went for a few hundred quid if I remember correctly.

I'm banning myself from any other purchases though.... :(

Very cool! I'm looking forward to seeing your work with this one.

My biggest concern with that lens is the fact that it has a fixed hood. And since I like doing long exposures when I do landscapes, I'm going to have to find a 58mm ND1000 that I can screw on.

Or keep a separate lens handy for long exposures (Maybe that's where the 24mm prime comes in to play).

I recommend some sort of close focus adapter, assuming compatible. It really opens up the lens, having the ability to do macro with no weight or size penalty.

I got this one, took two weeks to deliver: http://www.ebay.com …geName=STRK%3AM​EBIDX%3AIT (external link)

I'm sure there are better versions, however, I think this does the job fine. I cant imagine going back to a regular M adapter unless the lens has compatibility issues (some do).

Here is a canon 17-40 f4.0 with a metabones 4 with firmware 4.0 a little disappointed with it at 17mm as the adapter is seen, at 19 its a little less noticeable auto focus is slow not to be unexpected manual with focus peaking spot on, also mf assist on does just as well if not better than auto focus both manual focus system work very well and fast. both sooc (raw) no edits nothing, first one at 40 next 17 mm. I posted about a remote called trigger trap they are in for the a7ii mine is on the way i will post about it when I get it and shoot some, from reading i am really excited to try it. check it out at www.triggertrap.com (external link).

The A7ii in general? It's been very cool of an experience. It's only been a week now, since I received it. But loads of fun. Been going in a completely different direction with my photography (which is nice and refreshing) thanks to the compact size, the small manual lenses, the MF (slowing me down to think, etc).
I can't wait to take it out again.

Yeah its really fun to find yourself taking photos of things you wouldnt with a big and heavy DSLR...
Glad youre happy as your first post was kind of negative on the ergonomics. I somehow felt guilty as we all pushed you to pull the trigger :p

There was definitely a learning curve. And frankly, I think the Sony still has plenty of faults. They really should work on improving the user experience more. The menu system is awkward and things aren't named very well. There are some limitations in other areas too. But none of it is a deal breaker for me as I find workarounds for what I use it for.
I maintain that if I were someone who's livelihood depended on the camera, I'd stick to Canon. But as a hobbyist, who doesn't do sports, action or wildlife, the pros of the Sony, namely size and weight, dynamic range and legacy lens support, make it a very fun toy.

You're just gonna keep teasing, aren't you...
FL based on FOV looks about 50ish or maybe even 85. But hard to tell.
Do enlighten us!
