  • 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. .. ...
  • Replied in Sweet
    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/

    ...NOT really! Taken handheld outdoors with the Sony A7II + Sony Zeiss 24-70 OSS @70mm, f4, 1/100s, ISO100. RAW converted on SilkypixPro6, post processed in PS CS6. Comments welcome! Thks, ... Lucas ...

    - 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...

    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
  • I've been amazed with the Sony 18-105 f4 G PZ OSS on the A6000. I expected it to be a versatile lens with very good IQ, mainly for general use stills and video, but it also shows pleasing results ...
  • Those are very good shots, very sharp, nice colors! I have 3 Rokinons, all A-mount: 8mm/f3.5, 14mm/f2.8, 85mm/f1.4 and I use them in both APS-C ( A6000 ) and FF ( A99, A7II ) with the Sony LA-EA1 ...

    Grab an A6000 with the 16-50 and 18-135 f4 lenses and you'll be in heaven for some time and won't miss your p&s. After that, there'll be no limit where you can go!

  • Commented on Sony Alpha 7S Review preview

    Not with the A7S! The full sensor readout and low pixel density are some of the great features that prevent those problems. The A7S is a landmark, having "raised the bar" quite higher than ever for...
