  • I've had the A7 and now have the A7II. My only E-mount lens is the Sony/Zeiss FE 24-70 f4, which is wonderful. But I also have a Sony A99 and a multitude of A-mount glass. So I bought adaptors ( I...

  • Commented on City 007niBW photo in Lucas_'s photo gallery

    Thank you, I did it b&w to honor my old times ( early 70's ) when I shoot with a Leica M2 and two primes: Summicron 50/2 and 90/2. Of course that's San Francisco...!

  • Commented on PICT0491w photo in Lucas_'s photo gallery

    Thanks! That seems like ages ago...

  • On top of it all, it will fastly AF with Canon DSLR lenses plus a Metabones electronic adapter!

  • Replied in Good News!
    IMHO Sony is starting the move for new A-mount FF's. An A99II by fall with similar enhancements as the A77II plus some more ( new 36-42 MP sensor with 200 AF sensors spread to 90% of the sensor ...
  • Uma foto verdadeiramente maravilhosa, sem dúvida mereceu o prêmio! Um abraço, ... Lucas
  • I saw this miniscule insect ( about 3mm body length ) observing whatever lies ahead with amazing attention. Its "stand up" position, helped by the leaf curvature, made it look almost as if it were ...
  • Thanks, that sure was a "spur of the moment shot"! As for the bag strap, I had to clone out all the books and a package she was holding with her left arm ( actually the vignetting effect helped to ...
  • She's a very young and shy model... Thanks for looking, Paulo! ... Lucas :-) Always having fun with photography :-P http://www.lucaspix.smugmug.com/
  • Yep, b/g photoshopped. You may be right, but my idea was to get the right colors to match the model. Anyway, the original b/g was a lot more distracting and uninteresting...! Thanks for looking. .. ...

    Thanks, John! I'm quite amazed with the kind of work the A7II allows me to get! ... Lucas :-) Always having fun with photography :-P http://www.lucaspix.smugmug.com/
  • Created discussions A7II Studio Portrait...

  • Commented on Sony Alpha a7 II Review preview

    - Dan, I didn't say you were careless, I said DPR was for assigning such a tough job to a newcomer ( no ofense ). Anyway, I don't find the A7II to be bulky at all, it's actually robust! I bought...

  • Commented on Sony Alpha a7 II Review preview

    I've been shooting for three months with the A7 and close to two months with the A7II, now. The A7II adds almost everything that I wished the A7 had: better sized grip, more robust body, more...

  • Commented on Sony Alpha a7 II Review preview

    The A7Ii is such a wonderful camera, that DPR had to dig out something like "high ISO noise" to not give it another gold to Sony...! They're also mistaken when saying that the sensor is the same...

    The A7Ii is such a wonderful and groundbreaking camera, that DPR had to dig out something like "high ISO noise" to not give it another gold to Sony...! Since I bought it my excellent A99 startedto...

  • I usually shoot portrait from 60 to 90mm with this lens on the A6000. ... Lucas
