1st attempt shooting BIF with my Canon 400mm f2.8 IS II. I do need 600mmplus ;D
He he, I think I told you so ;) And when you get the 600, you´ll hook on the extenders and then you´ll start hoping for a high quality 7DII to take you even further  ::)

Hi Eldar,
I have not yet have doubt in your, elm58, and neuro advices - especially on BIG WHITE lenses.

600mm is on my WISHLIST....the bigger question is WHEN will I be able to pull the trigger ::) It's $12K lens :-\  I can pull trigger on latest TAMMY 150-600mm ;D ;D ;D - just kidding, I think AF will be an issue for BIF and of course IQ.

Lovely :)

Thanks Menace

Due to 400mm on FF, I cropped a lot. The IQ wasn't that great...but it was a fun trip ;D

There are two diff. markets, Pro and everyday shooter. The Pro will cont. with DSLR and wonderful L lenses.

Not true. Many professional photographers are using mirrorless systems.

I don't see how Pro sport shooters would buy current mirrorless over DSLR.

I do agree with you on Pro with still shooting assigments

I can feel the "heat" from this topic already ;)

My 2cents: There are two diff. markets, Pro and everyday shooter. The Pro will cont. with DSLR and wonderful L lenses. Where everyday shooters want something simple and compact, but doesn't want to give up FF IQ - this option doesn't exist until Sony shows up.

For me, I rather enjoy both worlds.
Would be true, if it wasn't for the fact that the A7R trumps the 5D3 and 1DX in FF IQ, while still being small, simple, wifi/smartphone-connectable, e.t.c.. It is without a doubt the best camera available for my dear L-lenses.. Like Kai said, the game is changing.

EDIT: Oops, I just saw that you mentioned Sony. Never mind. :)

I'm not DR guy. Be able to shoot at higher ISO is what I'm really after in FF world. The reason I purchased A7 is compact - for travel oversea and just taking picture of my kids on short trip . I'm interested to add 2-3 Zeiss FE lenses to this compact system(55mm, UWA, 85 or 135 depends on lens size).

I just don't see myself attaching 24-70 f2.8, 70-200 f2.8, 100-400 f4, 300mm, or 400mm on this compact body. 5D III/1D X feels so much better with big lenses - not to mention AF tracking on DSLR is something current mirrorless can't keep up.

I do agree with you on IQ/sensor stuff

Thanks Rienzphotoz.

Can't wait to fly back home to see the kids, wife and NEW TOYS ;)
I understand,  new toys are lots of fun coz they are new  ;) ... but wife and kids ... you know, same ol, same ol  ;D... I'm just kidding ... my wife will kill me if she sees this post.   :-X ... more than that I am scared she might stop her once a year gift of buying me a lens for my birthday ... last year she didn't buy a lens as we had gone on a holiday and she promised to give it next month ... so I better not make stupid comments like these else I might lose the gift  :-X ;D

LOL... ;D

The #1 reason that I got all these stupid FF camera gear is my kids. They are my #1 treasure in my life.

If I have no kids, I think would still be shooting with little Canon $99 P&S. Back in 2006, my wife and I went to Hawaii for our honeymoon. Can you guess, what camera that I bought and brought with us?  :P

Wow...at fraction of Canon 600mm f4, this Tammy will stir the pot for sure. Very interesting ::)

You know LR5.3 supports A7 + new FE lenses?
I didn't even think of it, until I saw your post ... so I just fired up LR 5.3 now to check some of the test images I had taken on Saturday when I got the Metabones adapter ... lo and behold LR 5.3 does support A7+EF lenses .. here is an image made with EF 85mm f/1.8 at f/1.8 ... the first one is straight out of the camera, the second one is the same image without any post processing other than tick mark "Profile" in "Lens Corrections" of LR 5.3 ... as you can see it does take care of vignetting.
Due to bad weather I was only able to test my lenses (with A7+metabones) at home ... so I have more such "test" images with EF 40 f/2.8, 50 f/1.4, 100 f/2.8 L IS Macro, 16-35 f/2.8 L II, 70-200 f/2.8 L IS II & Tamron 24-70 f/2.8 VC ... basically all of them are supported in LR 5.3
EDIT: Sorry my bad, it does not support automatically, I was too excited to check if it supports or not, so in the excitement I forgot that I was selecting Custom Lens Corrections Profile in LR5.3 ... Moral of the story: too much excitement can will lead to embarrassment :-[

What about zeiss FE lenses?  Thanks
With LR 5.3 release, all the 3 below lenses are supported:
1. Sony FE 28-70mm F3.5-5.6 OSS
2. Sony ZEISS FE 35mm F2.8 ZA
3. Sony ZEISS FE 55mm F1.8 ZA

Thanks Rienzphotoz.
