Make sure you provide your wife and kids with your forwarding address, as after you get this combo in your hands you'll probably want to run away and hide with it. Might have trouble sending it back, lol.

lol... i'm sending back my A7RII. lol

Just a test shot off the back deck last night here on vacation in FL...nothing special...but I love the little textures and details the A7R2 brings out naturally...a simple 1.66 +EV adjustment and all of that was there...no special editing required...I love that. Hoping for clear skies later in the week, I want to use the SharpStar and Pure Night filters and do some testing with the latter...

Congrats on the new glass David.

Mail arrived here too, well actually I had to drive to UPS and sign.
First from the a9, pouring rain, using the 70-300L

Not a bird, not a bug :)

The 70-300L looks super duper Robert - very sharp!

_______________

Several weeks back, while out working in the yard, I heard pitiful cries coming from the next door neighbors shed. It was a frightened little kitten - abandoned, all by itself, and without a home. We began feeding him at once with the plan to take him to the Humane Society for adoption as soon as he would let us catch him. But, he caught us. Stole our hearts and now he's part of our family. Here he is from this afternoon lounging happily on our front porch:

The initial images from your Siggy 35 look great David. Nice transition to the bokeh. How does this lens plus adapter compare in size to the FE 35 f1.4?

Thanks Alfredo.

Sigma 35mm: 23.46 oz (665 g)
Sigma MC-11/Metabones: about 5 oz (140 g)

Sony FE 35mm f/1.4 ZA: 22.24 lb (630 g)

So, basically the weight difference comes down to the weight of the adapter.

For me it really was a price thing. My used Sigma, being than half the price for a new Sony, just worked out perfectly with my budget.

Looks great Travis...so Batis 18mm is very good for astro?

At some point I need to take some starry sky shots.

To date, it is my favorite. The edges look better than anything else I have used.

digital_AM wrote in post #18382117 (external link)
Yep Batis 18 is great for astro. The only negative is the poor user experience using fly-by-wire manual focus.

Nice capture Travis. Let us know how the night filter works. It was too expensive when it was just announced. I haven't used my Sharpstar yet.

I hope I get to at least test it out...looking SE from here there really isn't any light pollution, so I don't know that the PureNight will do much...

xpfloyd wrote in post #18382122 (external link)
I tried to use it when I got it and struggled. Havent had a chance to try again yet

SharpStar was a little tricky at first, the trcik is finding the brightest star in the sky you can see, and putting that in the middle of the frame. You are not framing the scene as you want to shoot it, you are obtaining critical focus and then recomposing. Ian has mentioned that for the B18, critical focus is just as the infinity symbol pops up on the OLED, and I have found that to be the case with mine as well, and now I don't have to use the SharpStar for that lens...if it was a critical shot to get right, I probably would double check it to make sure...the trouble is, if the dang thing turns off at all...it can reset...focus by wire is a bit of a PITA.

Wonderful capture.
Someday please teach me how to focus on stars with the A7Rii.

SharpStar...it makes ALL the difference.

So while on vacation, I am updating some stuff on my website...most notably is adding the 3 projects I shot for the Landscape Architect friend of mine in the Bay Area. We have developed a great working relationship over the last two years, I deliver, get paid and we keep going...it is great. He has decided that he will no longer shoot his own work and have me edit it anymore...he is just going to have me come out a couple times a year...we already have the next trip scheduled to shoot 4 more projects.

This is from a house in the Burlingame Area, the Owner bought it out of foreclosure, and renovated the inside and outside...the landscape was raw dirt and dead grass when he got started. The place was done with the utmost attention to detail...I loved it. I will have a few more of the inside later, the Owner was more than happy to let me shoot the main spaces inside as well while we were there.that i

One of the design elements that he works with a lot, and we documented on each project, is the approach, and how it blends into the hardscape/home.

And also how the landscape space interacts with the inside space. I love Nana Walls...one day I hope I can afford some!

The 12mm even came into play, to really exaggerate the space.

This was a 32 image SR app shot. Exposed for the light in the sky. Then the shadows were pulled up and edited to taste...
