Forgot to tell you I've bought Gordon several cups of coffer via his donation tab for his reviews.

That's why I have all kinds of Canon L glass but for my Sony I've bought the FE 50, FE 85 and I have the B25 but I wouldn't mind selling it and getting the FE 28 and spend the extra on travel. ;-)a

Great shot Vinz.

I always have the A7R ii with the FE 50 with me. I've gotten a lot of great sunsets on my way home from work. Makes you get creative with your positioning when you just find a place to pull off the road or look for shots like this in the car wash line. :)

i am looking forward to the a7s3

What i hope it would have
1) 16-20 MP
2) PDAF
3) Improved 1 stop low light from original a7s

if they do that im sold!!!

I skipped the a7s2 as the low light capability of the original a7s was a tad better - 7s2 had a lot of bells and whistles that were very very nice but low light IQ is number 1 for me

hoping the 3 things i said on top happen. im just concerned that if they do, it quickly makes the a73 redundant which they wont allow

Posted this over in the portrait thread, but thought I would share it here...it was shot with the a9, I had the 135L mounted to it, and the 85GM on the 7r2...ended up just swapping lenses in and out on the a9...the FPS and AF is so much better...and I have secretly hated the sound the 7r2 makes for the shutter, so the super silent ninja mode of the a9 has become my preferred...and I don't see a hit on the bokeh or any banding...

Thank you! These two are friends of mine...they hired me after their first three photographer experiences resulted in her in tears...she can't even look at her wedding photos. There is a good chance they are going to fly me to wherever they renew "redo" their wedding...

Lovely shot Travis, I’m also not a fan of the 7rii shutter sound but it’s a big improvement of the a7r clang that I hated

Edit - just dawned on me you previously said you had Efcs disabled. If you enable that it takes some of the clunky sound away

Beautiful shot Travis. The lighting and scene are excellent.

---------------

First impressions of my new FE 16-35 GM. I'm pleased with the sharpness from the lens even at f2.8. At 16mm, the sides tend to elongate a bit. I will compare it at 18mm against my Batis. The lens itself is longer than the Batis 18mm but surprisingly isn't front heavy. It's well made but not as nice as the all metal build of the Loxia lenses. One odd thing I found was there was no distance scale on the lens which could make astro a bit difficult. Well, more testing to do this weekend.

Thank you sir...yes, EFCS is off on the 7r2, I have seen some banding and harshness to bokeh with that, so I have left it off for that one...the a9 doesn't seem to suffer from that...and the a9 shoots so much faster I get more frames to pick the best one...

Thanks! I have been doing a little more of the softer shadows with my edits on people lately, and wanted to really get the warmth of the light we had last night in this, and not have dark shadows.

About the GM...the lack of a distance scale is a real bummer, that will make it really hard to shoot astro...thank you for pointing that out...that probably seals the deal for me, I might lean more toward picking up the f4 version for architectural work, since the f/2.8 is not necessary there, or for typical landscape work.

Went out this morning for some vanilla landscapes, woke up late, so had to test my cardio I've been doing these months. I had to run up the mountain full speed for as long as I could with all my gear. I was cutting it super close, only 10-15 minutes of shooting and the sky started to wash out in this direction.

Yes that was really bothering me too so I just checked something and it's good news I think. I switched the lens to MF. Now I see a focal distance scale in the viewfinder. Also even better news is that if I power off and then on the camera, the lens keeps the last focus distance you set. So I think this is really good news. What do you think?
