there's nothing I can do with the blown highlights with my shot unless i have my video light with me to balance exposure. sometimes you have to sacrifice the background for your subject. it happens even on weddings.

Absolutely! Sorry for my confusing post. I was not faulting your technique at all. Rather was just bemoaning the challenges of shooting low-light high-ISO images. Far less DR to work with at high ISOs.:cry: But, certainly, you did what you needed to do. :)

I thought you guys might appreciate this thread... https://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php​?t=1433746

It's baffling to me how some people get so up-in-arms against Sony for various things. Some people just can't let go of the past and accept innovation.

That guy is a dedicated life-long member of the Canon DSLR cult. He believes what he believes regardless of any fact presented to him. I am afraid lot of good solid words were wasted trying to reason with that bunkered-down entrenched brain. :)

Fair points made in the thread both for and against the Sony system. It really isn't for everyone, and there are very distinct strengths and weaknesses with both mirrorless camera and DSLR's. That said, I'm all for giving credit where credit is due, and its hard not to correct someone when they cling to outdated sentiments regarding mirrorless cameras. Most have never used one and are basing their opinion on outdated information....can't blame them as mirrorless cameras have progressed very quickly in the past two years. Most are receptive to the facts when you present them in the right way and the benefit of those discussions is that at least some people walk away better educated about mirrorless cameras, even if they still aren't for them.

Some, however, have their heads buried so deep in a red ringed hole that they blindly disregard anything that goes against whatever camera or system they bought into. Cameras are expensive, and as such, are emotional purchases for people, and some people feel the need to justify what they spent thousands of dollars on, by verbally pooping on everything else. Unfortunately people like that feel a constant need to justify themselves, so they tend to have the loudest voices. It's best to ignore people like that, as there's no reasoning with them and no rational person capable of critical thinking (even those who share similar opinions) takes that kind of mindset seriously.

You hung with him a lot longer than I would have.

So moving on...

Has anyone done the updates to both the A7RII version 1.1 and the Metabones IV version .44? Any problems?

I know. Did not realize how for-gone that guy was at first....but it was pretty clear after awhile that he only selectively listens to things that validate his own opinion. Total waste of time reasoning with him, but hopefully others watching from the sidelines got something useful out of the discussion.

That's really the only reason I ever post replies or arguments to people like that, I want readers to see pretty clearly that his head is stuck in the sand.

IN my experience camera vs camera "discussions" are a lot like political "discussions."

When its all said and done, very few people change their minds. -?

I think im going to get that leica 50 summilux asph this evening. My first leica lens, i must be insane :oops:

Just wondering if you ever went through with this. Would love to see some test shots with the lux, interested in seeing the bokeh and corner issues.

These are great. I really like the abstractness to them.

True story.

I try to stay out of the subjective discussions as much as possible. But if someone spouts straight up mis-information, then they need to be corrected :-)

My memory span is too short these days to keep arguments in mind. :)
I though I'd post a couple of shots to show the Sigma 12-24mm at the 12mm setting, using the Sony a7S.
Yes it can catch glare from the sun, but it didn't bother me here.

And two more same combination. Even the flare added something to the interior shot.
These are all edited and resized.

Sigma 12-24 looks good! Canon 11-24 is too much $$ for me. I've been intrigued by this lens, but the rumors seem to point to this being updated with an ART version soon....so I'm holding out for now.

Thanks! While the 2nd shot is not quite as sharp as I wanted, I have to say that I'm impressed and very happy with the FE 55 f/1.8 lens.
