thanks for the info. i gotta check up on the videos. my main feature would be to use it in place of nd filters.

DT when you think about it the Arsenal company might have languished if not for Sony deposing the apps......and if Sony were to reinstate them suddenly
Arsenal might flounder (all Nikons and most Canons I can think of have intervalometer internal). I would give the Arsenal developer credit for foresight in the Sony app demise but I believe he was crafting Arsenal before any knew that
the apps would be left behind.
Still it's another piece of kit to haul around/remember to charge/don't forget the cable.....that part of it sucks, and all the mumbo jumbo on artificial intelligence and
the picture profiles inside Arsenal are kinda of a turn off but if it brings intervalometer and S-R to the Riii then all will be forgiven eh :)
I'm just still puzzled on how it processes the images inside the Arsenal unit then writes the final image back to the card in the camera.

on a GAS related note, I found someone selling the sony Z battery + 128 UHS-ii ~300/300 cards on FM. I put in an offer and then check BH, and found some deals on used items. significant discount on used accessories, got both for 190 total....... incredible deal.

A stunner Travis. It reminds me to keep the Rii though I recently checked the 'shutter' count.

I don't worry about shutter count...it's a camera, meant to take pictures...

Thanks! Maybe the next time you head out to JT you can spare a morning for a trip to La Jolla. ;-)a

I might have to plan it that way...though I told myself I wouldn't drive in LA again...

There's a laowa 15mm f2 in native mount, and it's small.

the 12-24 has a 77mm filter trick that works well, and very easy to work with.

16-35 will be no worse than the canon 17-40, and on the longer end where it's weak, seems ok stopped down.

from 21 to 65, no prime is going to be bad. It will range from good to super if you shoot with primes. I dont have the 21, but it seems to be in the super category. 28 f2 good, 35 f2.8 very good, 50 f1.8 good, 55 f1.8 very good, 85 f1.8 very good, 85 f1.4 GM very good.

full shutter of the R3 isnt very different from EFCS noise wise, it's a lot different than the R2.

Thanks will check it out, how do you rate it good, very good, super ?

I think you spot on with your ratings from my looking at many shots in those ranges.

I appreciate your input Charlie.... Thank you sir !!

I have never had any issues with lenses (knock on wood) either bought or rented. Even the cv 15v3 I had was great. I will admit I dont fully test everylens to a Fred M standard but have never had issues at the edges more so then what the lens "should" have. 12-24 is possible in my future and NISI has a filter holder for it. My 100-400 GM is frikin rock solid. I would say the weakest lens I have or have tried is the 90 macro. Not quite as good as the old 100 2.8 canon I had but still solid for the dollar. I am learning to love the 55 1.8 it sat in my bag for a long time but the A9 has brought it out big time.


I'm with you eriet30, I also had no issues. Funny you mention FM standard, there is a thread from a new photographer with not much experience, he was worried that his few new lenses did not live up to being centered.. Well one of the accomplished photographers ( great work by the way) like many here shinned in and told him go out and shoot the lens as you normally would and enjoy it.. Then evaluate it. No need to get all neurotic about it. If you see something wrong then by all means do a few further tests which he went on to explain. By the way some of the suggestions were really helpful... Personally thats what I do, just go out and shoot it.. If something is wrong you will see it. Fortunately they always been within standard. What is difficult is moving to new system, you have to research it, and believe me I am happy its just about over.

Yes I read there was a Nisi,
This is what I use

I have a 82mm polorizer sprokett that I am able to use in the holder for my largest to my smallest mm lenses with stepdown rings.
I am not sure it will work with all the lenses I am looking into. Just not sure if the hoods are permanent or not.

I did see many felt the same was as you did regarding the 100-400gm

I appreciate your thoughts, thanks eriet30

I do use it myself and my filter situation is extremely easy and quick to setup/break down.

For land and cityscapes I like all the Loxias. Color, microntrast, gorgeous 10-point sunstars. The Loxia 35mm is the weakest (sharpness), but it’s plenty sharp stopped down and the color rendition is superb imo. It’s actually my favorite landscape lens. The best alternative is adapting the Voigtlander Ultron 35mm 1.7.

I got my L35 used on FM from a guy that posted a lot with the lens on the FM image thread.

I’d love to also own the Loxia 50mm and 85mm for landscapes, but the FE 55mm and Batis 85mm, which also excel at landscapes (not as well though) serve my AF needs in my street shooting.

If you’re mainly about city/landscapes, think seriously about all the Loxias: their optical excellence along with diminutive size makes them a pleasure to carry.

Can anyone with the FE 501.8 comment on how bad the AF is on the A7rII/III. It's super affordable and compact but for my personal photos might not cut it if the AF can't keep up with the kiddos

following to this. i sometimes came into a situation when i wish i still have my 55F1.8

Congratulations on your new lens Gene. Often maligned eh but easily offset by its
huge range.
