Great shots Charlie and I agree that the "Center of attention" shot is way cool. I guess image stabilization and AF are more important to me than the extra stop of light offered at f2. I certainly have no complaints regarding the sharpness or color rendering of the FE 90.

Charlie I love 'Center of Attention' totally cool shot.

Super cool shot! You got the CV 12mm??! 8-)

yes, thanks. I did get it, wasnt planning on using it till I got the A7rii, there were reports that the magenta cast was cured. The cast is HORRIBLE on the A7r, however I did create a preset that makes it livable.

optically, it's quite a bit below the 11-24/rok 14, however, being super small and super wide, it's quite a fun lens. I can get super low shutter speeds with it and make cool effects.

love love love the size of the lens, super small and light, really needs the A7rii since the cast is ridiculous. Hedging my bets at this point.

coming from the 85/1.2 and 135/2, the 100/2 was an attempt to consolidate and downsize my kit. For the most part, I am happy. The weight does bother me a bit, and the reach.... a bit lacking..... but weight is my main irk.

some run of the mill swim less shots from the ze 100:

^actually someone does. I've got one....very sharp....very affordable (since not my main macro I went with DigitalRev)...very lightweight. Only problem is FL and having to get really close to the bugs-

Charlie, noticed a 70-400G in your signature. Is that the Sony 70-400G.
If perhaps it is have you used it with a LAEA3 and A7x body?
I would love to know how the sony 70-400g (2) does with the A7Rii and LAEA3 before I take the plunge.
Daniel, don't you have one as well?
I'm thinking with the 399 array of focus points and no mirror (LAEA4) to get in the way it just might actually track
something moving...say a big bird like an eagle or heron.
Thoughts anybody???

I have the 70-400 and use it with the laea4. I can't comment on the lens on the a7r ii since I don't have one. I have found that the 70-400 tracks fairly well on the laea4 using "wide area" focus as long as you keep the subject in the box with the focus points. I have been able to track a flying osprey, but haven't tried a smaller, quicker bird.


Just a thought from Daniel

Thanks for that review/education on the adapters. I think I've got a bit more to study, not wanting to make a $2K mistake :)
Doubt that I'll try anything moving smaller than an osprey or eagle.

Ive been having trouble finding an Nissin Di700a in stock. Saw one 2 days ago on Amazon and instead of buying me I held off until I added more to the cart. Missed that and a like new 21 converter for $25 off. B&H isn't expecting any until 8/31 and I have an wedding party to shoot on 8/30, lol. Just my luck.

So I guess I'll be getting the i40s, which probably makes more sense and balances better anyways. I'll put the Di700a and messing around with OCF on my to-do list later on. Probably the smart thing since I'm not sure how often I would use the huge flash but I could see using the i40 more frequently.

Vinz, my first thought regarding your edit was that the top of his head and edge of the left side of his face is too dark. I think I would have tried to have fun with the strong backlight and add to it. I would also use the liquefy tool to close his left eye a little.

I hadn't even noticed the exif information. I think this should have been posted in the 5DIII thread as well. A link to it could have been posted here instead.
