These are a few scenes I took of the local hobby shop train setup. The one issue I tend to have with my a7r is that the main wheel in the back can be easily bumped and moved. I've kept it for changing iso and in a few cases, like these images, the iso has gotten bumped from auto iso to iso 64. I saw no change in the viewfinder so I kept shooting. It sure makes for some slow shutter speeds.

I should add that the Sony 35mm f2.8 lens has become my go to lens for the most part it seems.

(The 'edit metadata' function doesn't have iso 64 but that's what these were all shot at)

Those turned out nice Gene. I ordered mine last night, should arrive tomorrow. I thought about waiting for the f/1.4 model later in 2015, but that lens will be bigger/heavier and I want to try out a super-light setup.

Thanks David. I hope you saw my post regarding the hood and lens cap for the 35mm f2.8. When my hood broke, the cap no longer worked. It was very expensive to replace the original hood so my solution saves a ton, looks and works great too. I'm looking forward to seeing a few images from this lens soon. I understand you also picked up the 55 f1.8. I know you'll love that lens as well.

Thanks. When I was young I did have a train set. The track ould be laid out on the carpet and went in a oval that was about 6' on the long leg and the train only had a couple of cars but I still loved it. My biggest issue with getting into the hobby was the huge amount of space it can take up to do it right. :-D

Sounds like my set as well. I would have the train truck go under the couch to mimic a tunnel. Yes that is the one down side is the real estate needed to really do it justice. I envy some of the elaborate setups i have seen with multiple trains and train yards. :) As a matter of fact this was the set my pop purchased for me when i was a child:

nice set Gene. Those miniatures and models look great. Surprised to see the slow shutter speed with the cluncky shutter execution. food example for those who are worried about camera shake with the shutter press :P

after a year you finally done it :P

I really like the 35 even though its 2.8. it's very sharp and easy to carry around. as Gene mentioned about the lens hood being faulty, don't freak out.. when it happens call up sony for a free replacement within the year of purchase. I too thought about the 1.4 as an addition because I like the sigma 35. would like to use it on the a7r but I do not have an adapter for it and don't wish to spend much for it, rather spend it towards a lens.. love the sigma 35 rendition and bokeh. both zeiss 35 and sigma 35 have different contrast and color which both are pleasing to the eyes... hard to chose. I know I want the 16-35 though :)

That set is much nicer than mine was. I don't know what scale it was but mine was pretty big. Here's an image of a similar looking train like mine.

I bought mine through a private party and didn't think I had the documentation needed to get a free replacement. At least going my route, I don't have to worry about the hood falling apart ever again.  :p

That is still a nice set you had. Eventually i want to own a set of the trains i rode in Italy. Even if its just a small set of tracks.

Gene you inspired me to create a Model Train image sharing thread. I searched POTN and could not find one. So now we have one :) More than welcomed to add some of yours :)

Yes, thanks for the lens hood info. The 35 and 55 came today, so I took them out for a spin. Good grief they are ultra light!

Yes, took me a whole year to smarten up! :lol: Now that I have the 35 and 55 I'm wishing for the zooms too. :lol:
