It requires a lot more post work blending images for focus for sure.

I can't always do that either because the CV40 suffers from focus breathing.......! This one wasn't an issue because I knew I could blend it through the water ;) I'm pretty sure the 21mm does too.

I think every lens suffers from that...the 1616-35GM sure does...it makes for challenging blending.

Ahhh. I didn't realise it was that common. The old CV40/1.4 Classic I have in M mount is terrible for it!

Yeah the 1616-35GM feels like it zooms in when focusing on the far stuff...it loses a solid 20 pixels on each side. Photoshop does a pretty good job of aligning them so I just shoot them a touch wider knowing I am going to lose some.

Anyone using their Sony with Capture One? I am trying to do an overhead shot so need to AF using Capture One. So far no luck. I thought it was BBF focussing on the camera but I disabled it and put AF back on the shutter button but still pressing AF button in capture one doesn't do anything. So far have tried AF-S, AF-C, MF. The Far/Near buttons are disabled so are the >, >>, <<, < buttons.

After my first more or less proper walkaround with the Sony, including my three primes and the 100L adapted with the MC-11, I have to say I still feel a bit on the fence on the Sony system, and I feel that the performance I got today was very much at odds with what I've had in my other shoots (particularly when I rented the a7RIII).

The Sony primes all seemed to do poorly in controlling CA (which I have to admit Capture One corrects very poorly, this being one of its flaws) and I'm not sure that I liked the files. None of the primes, even the 55 Sony Zeiss, delivered color that came close to matching what I've seen so far with the 70-350G, and did markedly worse than the 100L (when it could focus, I just feel that it outperformed the Sony primes; that being said, it seem to hunt and misfocus a lot, and feel generally unusable.

From what I could tell so far, the bokeh of the Sony Zeiss 55 is a thing of beauty (first image). Despite this, the CA in the letters just detracts from the image even in b&w by making it look softer; see below the image from the 100L. (I don't know if the different angle of the 100L shot could have affected the incidence of CA?)

...On a more positive note, I think I found a couple of shooting locations that I very much intend to return to in the not too distant future.

Just fooling around with the Canon 70-200 on the A-9.

Nice key. I was lucky to get my novice license many years ago. I never did do 13 words a minute.

Captured this on a recent trip to Garden of the Gods a few weeks back. That's my son looking at a rock climber.

The dynamic range of this scene was pretty extreme. I had to blend in 4 separate exposures to recover the sky.

Batis 18

Note: Perhaps it looks a bit HDR'ish but that's what the sky looked like against the red rocks.

Back in those days I took my 13 wpm FCC test in San Francisco at the infamous 555 Battery Street location. I was a terrified 15 year writing down the morse code as fast as I could. There were 9 of us taking the test and only 3 of us passed. I went on to pass the 20 wpm test later. Still use it a couple of times a month to "talk" with some friends.

You might be interested in my other post. It's a key from the USS Ranger (CV-4).

I think the scene looks very natural Alfredo. I think what makes an image appear "HDRish" is when the shadows are lifted beyond the way our eyes normally see them.

Thanks for the link to your other post. Those are all beautiful, precision tools and I enjoyed reading about their backstories.

Wish I could be posting more but our slow rate of response in NYC is inching its way to what Italy has become. We have stocked up (like most of NYC) in anticipation of, crossing fingers, a city wide shutdown. As we need to put social distancing in full effect. Our nurses are already overwhelmed, I have three family members working in the largest hospital in NYC, and the shortages they are starting to deal with are staggering. I’m not an alarmist as I think very logically and right now our city isn’t doing enough to ensure the slow down of this spread. It’s an interesting time to be alive. Let’s see what this week brings.
