Here’s a few things I noticed with the Sony a7 and metabones adapter:
- The idea is great, sharp lenses with a great sensor.
- Autofocus (AF) generally work alright with L lenses.
- AF hunts a bit, focusing took about 4 secs with the 17-40L.
- Focus peaking works, but still requires a bit of practise.
That being said, I’ll let the photos speak for themselves. There is minimal post processing in the following photos so you can get a better idea of what to expect out of the camera and lens combination.
When you nail the , the combination of quality glass and the Sony sensor delivers even in the dark.
This one is all about the sensor, plenty of highlight and shadow detail that I managed to recover in Lightroom for this shot.
This photo had noise reduction performed in camera by the ay. My advise, turn off the automatic long exposure noise reduction otherwise you’ll be standing there for another 5 minutes waiting for the image to process.
Next up will be a more thorough test of the camera with a fast Canon prime at Vivid Sydney.
