Now this is funny. My copy of the Voigtlander 10mm E-mount was used, purchased from B&H on July 1st. I have to wonder--what was wrong with it?

That's my cockeyedness.

Ok Im a bit.....correction... a lot of a newb when it comes to bracketing. I have manually bracketed for exposure or focus and then merged in LR. But when it comes to the camera I have always assumed that the BRK3 or 5 setting is doing that for exposure automatically creating one RAW file. Am I incorrect.

Sigh I might end up paying gary fong 29 bucks for his A7 video guide

No. The in camera bracket option creates multiple raws. The benefit is you don't have to touch the camera between each shot (and potentially move the camera or focus) and the other advantage is it's quick so you don't miss changing light. You still have to blend in post as normal. Many options for that - HDR, exposure blending, luminosity masks etc

I'm not aware of merging the bracketed shots in camera. I would not recommend doing it that way anyway. You will have better control and results merging the bracketed images in post.

When taking your brackets, make sure you are in Av mode. Keep your ISO low. Don't change your aperture. Focus using AF and then switch to manual before shooting the brackets. Use a remote shutter release or use the 2, 5, or 10 second timer. The camera will adjust the shutter speed as it cycles through the brackets.

Why Av mode? I set my base exposure up manually then the camera changes the shutter speed for the brackets

Eddie, that's interesting. I've always used Aperture mode to lock in everything except shutter speed. I guess the same thing can be done in Manual mode but you'll need to adjust the shutter manually for each exposure. I could be wrong though. Maybe the camera does change the shutter speed in Manual mode automatically.

I'm assuming both would behave the same, as shutter speed *should* be the default to change, with the exception of shutter priority. I also just use manual if I'm doing landscape type shooting, since it just flows nicely with that style of work.

Yeah once you lock your base exposure in on manual mode the camera changes the shutter speed for you when doing the brackets and doesn't change iso or aperture. I suppose both ways would work, I've just always done it this way

And of course, you don't want the aperture to vary from exposure to exposure during the brackets or your DOF will be different, regardless of how you set up the camera. AV mode seems to be the easiest to me but maybe that's just because I'm used to that workflow.

The new samyang 14 comes out soon in native FE mount and with AF.

Is it just me or does the lens look quite a tad smaller than the existing SY14? Especially with adapter? Because if this lens is a performer like the existing manual one but comes in a fairly compact size (as the lens shown in the picture) i might be willing to let the CV15 go for that. 1mm wider, AF and f2.8 would make a great astro lens! I anyway reach for the FE16-35 because 1mm isnt that different, but 2mm would be clearly visible i think.

It's a bit smaller from what I remember, 2cm shorter and 100g lighter..... That's a good savings!

2mm definitely is noticeable, the current version is extremely good optically IMO, excellent for Astro. Mtf of the new version looks real good. Biggest problem was the 6 blade aperture, which now is 7.... Will be a huge difference. Too difficult for me to justify both 10 and 14, so I'll hold off... 10 has been amazing, and coming from 12mm, I didn't think I would be that impressed.......I was wrong.

Thanks for the feedback on the Voightlander 10. I think that will be my next lens. Although the 70-200 GM and 24-70 GM sound mighty tempting.
