Fernando Faria's recent activity

  • I have both a Sony A7II for manual FF lenses (Leica -M, Leica-R and OM Zuiko's) and an OMD-EM1 with 4/3rds and m.4/3rds lenses. Very seldom I use manual lenses on the EM1. Cheers, Fernando

  • I have the Mk1 version (I use it on my E-1) and works OK with the OMD-EM1 and MMF3. Lighter than the 12-60 (which is almos permanently attached to the EM1)  but a good lens overall. Cheers Fernando
  • Replied in Olympus Lenses
    René Given the experience I had with fast apertures and wider angles in the A7II with Leica M lenses, I deliberatley chose the more inexpensive 2.8 Zuiko lenses (in the case of the 21mm the ...
  • Sony A7II+Novoflex+Rokkor 40mm F2
  • Very nice photograph with lots of timing and wonderful colours. Fernando
  • Tempo Golden boy Someone i watching you Examples of two indoor and one outdoor shot using A7II+Rokkor 40mm.
  • I use the Summicron-C 40mm or the Rokkor 40mm F2 in my Sony A7II (both go with my Leica CL). Very nice combo (A7II+Novoflex+Summicron-c), for travelling light. The cron adds a bit more contrast ...
  • Thank you John for your reply to my question. I moved from the expensive Novoflex adapters (M and R Leica lenses) to the Fotodiox (£17 at Amazon sale) for the Zuiko's. It works well, focus at ...
  • Replied in Olympus Lenses
    I chose Zuiko's because I find them very good lenses given the experience I have with 4/3rds and m4/3ds lenses I own. Add to that the fact that they are relatively inexpensive for the quality they ...
  • John, What adapter brand do you use with the Zuiko 50mm in the Sony A7R II? Do you think the more expensive adapters add anything  to Zuiko's? I use a Photodiox adapter and I have no complains so far.
  • Very nice at that kind of ISO. I also use Zuiko's (inlcuding the 50mm F1.4) with my A7II especially going down to 21 mm (35,28,24,21). Those are my lenses for wide-angle shots with the Sony. They ...
  • Great collection! Try the Sony A7II + Novoflex adapter + Rlenses. This works very well on the Sony. I have some of the lenses you mention in your post and I like it a lot. They make the combo a ...
  • Hi, I dropped the use of the Summicron-M 35mm F2 Asph on my A7II (Novoflex adapter) because edge smoothness was quite noticeable, The centre of the frame was very good to excellent though. I tried ...
  • The ones I use with NOVOFLEX adapter: Summicron-C 40mm Summicron 50mm IV Voigtlander 75mm F2.5 Summicron APO 90mm Asph Lower focal lengths I revert to SLR lenses Leica and OM Zuiko's Cheers, Fernando.
  • I had three disappointing lenses to date with my Sony A7II. Summilux 1.4 Asph (field uniformity, outstanding at the centre though), Summicron 35mm Asph and M-Hexanon 28mm 2.8. On te other hand, ...
  • Hello. When I purchased the Sony A7II I wanted to solely use it with manual focus lenses, especially a number of Leica lenses that I have from the daus of the M6/M2. For the Leica M lenses and ...
  • Hi. I use a Novoflex (leica R-NEX) adapter with a Summicron-R 35mm and it is quite nice on my Sony A7II. Tried the Summicron-M 35mm Asph and corners and borders are very, very soft. The R-lens ...
  • German labour is minimal relatively to the total man-hours of the M. Portuguese labour costs are low compared to German labour cost and that is the reason why M cameras are assembled from the ...
  • I would like to add a scanned photo I took while trying less dense negatives by metering shades. I used my Leica M6 TTL with a Summicron 50 and scanned negative at max dpi (4000). The workflow was ...
