Reinz ... Not to sound like an ass but ... what are you trying to prove here?
I'm interested in the A7 + a kit/prime lens and have the special luxury of getting approx 20% discount on almost all Sony products so I'm wondering whether it is worth the plunge. Somehow I feel that a 55mmm prime + a A7 will be a great tool while on my travel.
I am however, NOT AT ALL interested in using one with an adapter. For me, the only point in the Sony is the smaller form factor that I can use while I'm traveling. For anything that requires a Canon lens, I'll happily use my DSLR.
Hi J.R, actually, I'm not trying to prove anything here ... I just got the FE ZEISS 24-70 f/4 lens, and I wanted to take it out for a spin, but as I mentioned earlier, the weather sucks big time today (I'll have to invite you to Qatar to see what the weather is like here), so the only interesting thing I could find was this sunflower (which as I mentioned is very unusual in this part of the world) ... anyway, so I decided why not shoot the flower at all apertures of this new lens, just to see/show how it looks ... nothing more and its not meant to be a test or anything.
Yeah, I saw the 20% discount thing ... pretty cool.
I did not go for the FE ZEISS 55 f/1.8 and got the Metabones adapter, because:
1. I'm not into prime lenses (but with the a7, I'm beginning to appreciate small prime lenses)
2. FE 55 f/1.8 is not small, in comparison to the f/4 zoom (55 f/1.8=70.5mm vs 24-70 f/4= 94.5mm)
3. Metabones adapter turns my a7 into a second/back-up FF camera body for my Canon lenses
4. The adapter also allows me to use EF 40mm & EF 50mm on a7 and still keep the small form factor ... I'm now thinking of getting the EF 28mm f/1.8 or 24 f/2.8 IS & 35 f/2 IS ... also considering the Voigtlander 15mm and/or 20mm, due to their very compact size ... if I do get them, I'll have the very slim Photodiox adapter permanently mounted on them.
