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

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

While cleaning out my cupboard today, I found the Kenko Extension Tubes, which I had bought many years ago and haven't touched ever since I bought a Tamron 90mm f/2.8 macro (which was sold to make way for the EF 100 f/2.8 L IS) ... anyway, since I unexpectedly found these extension tubes, I thought why not check it out with with my Sony a7 & EF prime lenses. So, I took a few shots of a metal turtle, which my niece was playing with ... I was quite surprised to find that the the EF lenses auto focus slightly faster with the Metabones adapter+Kenko extension tubes, than when mounted only with the metabones adapter. Anyway here are the images, straight out of the camera ... they are not pretty images, its just to show my setup for this little (unplanned/unexpected) test ... also, my niece was playing with the turtle in the backyard ... so its a bit dirty  :-[
The first image is just to show what I was shooting - a metal turtle (sitting on the Kenko 12 & 20mm extension tubes) ... this is made with just the Metabones adapter+EF 85mm f/1.8 lens mounted on the Sony a7 ... the subsequent images show the set up and the image captured. All images are photographed at 2 second exposures, f/22 aperture & ISO 800 (the higher ISO was an oversight, I thought it was ISO 200 as I was not wearing my reading glasses).

Sold my Nikon D7100 & 18-300 today morning and ordered the Sony a7 with the kit lens (28-70mm) a few minutes ago ... will try to get the metabones EOS adapter when it becomes available. I had stopped buying sony products a very long time ago due to abandoned product lines ... hope they keep to their word this time and are committed to the FF mirrorless lens line up without any rude shocks.

Rienzphotoz - Looks like you have had the a7 for over a month now, do you recommend it?  How does image quality, AF and the overall user experience compare with you Canon and Nikon DSLR's?
Bodies:  6D, EOS-M (22/2 and 18-55)
Lenses: Rokinon 14mm 2.8, 35mm 2.0 IS, 85mm 1.8, 100mm 2.8L IS Macro, 135mm 2.0L, 24-70mm 2.8L II, 70-200mm 2.8L IS II, Extenders: EF 1.4xIII, EF 2xIII ; Flash: ST-E3-RT, 600EX-RT (x3)

Here is a shot I took a few weeks ago using A7r with metabones adapter, 70-300L at ISO 1600 hand held on a rather dark, very cold (almost -30) day.  Fun subject since we don't get Mandarin ducks on the north shore of Lake Ontario very often :)



Also one from last week this one using the canon 100-400L at 400 ISO also handheld but only at -10 degrees so I was only shaking a little.


So far everything works very well, autofocus is very slow as expected but focus peaking works amazingly well (at least with the 70-300, the 100-400 I have always found changes focus with way too small of a movement to work for me).  Can't wait to get out in something other than cold grey, white and beige to play with it with more wide angle lenses.

Hi bholliman ... for me the Sony a7 is a compliment to my existing Canon & Nikon gear, not a replacement. For me photography is a fun hobby, so I just eyeball the images that my gear is able to produce in real normal situations rather than get into reading test charts and stuff ... so take my opinion with a pinch of salt.
1. Image quality is on par with 5D MK III
2. AF is definitely not as fast as 5D MK III
3. Great Wifi connectivity with almost no lag between the photo/video on cam and phone.
4. I can use all my current Canon, Tamron & Sigma lens on a7 (using a small adapter) with Auto Focus (except for 50 f/1.4 which does not AF with the metabones adapter).
5. Lot more fun than the 5D MK III, bcoz it is light weight and the apps make complex editing easy and fun.
Let me elaborate a bit with an example on the last part ... I like timelapse, but with 5D MK III I had to take the photos, import to LR5, edit, then take to another software to complete the timelapse and export/publish it ... but with the a7 the timelapse app does everything for me i.e. taking photos to editing and converting them into a timelapse video, so I don't need to do a lot work for editing and still get some great timelapse footage ready to be shared with my family and friends.

Fantastic photo ... looks just as good (if not better) as a photo taken with a Canon camera and the 70-300 lens.

Forgot to mention, the EF 50 f/1.4 does not AF on Sony a7+metabones adapter ... but when I mounted the Kenko Extension tubes on Sony a7+metabones adapter+50 f/1.4, the lens actually auto focused ... I am not sure what happened there but the Kenko extension tube is doing something to this combo and enabling it to auto focus ... thought some of you might be interested to know and those of you who have that combo, might want to give it a try and share your feedback. Cheers.
