PaulR's recent activity

  • My copy of the 24-70mm F4 is excellent.  Even with extreme pixel peeping I find it difficult to tell the difference between it and the 35mm or 55mm lenses if they are shot at F5.6 or F8.  I think...

  • Thanks.  I'll download it and give it a try. Paul

  • Replied in FE 24-70 QC

    I'm going to order mine in April for a May trip. My 28-70 kit lens is better by far than some of the 24-70 samples I've seen. I never suspected Sony of bad copies all through the 16-50PZ...
  • Short answer: The lens is being replaced by the FE35 and FE55 combo. The FE55 I already own, the FE35 arrives tomorrow. This guarantees that I will be needing something wider, perhaps a 24mm or...
  • I agree with that completely and I think a lot of people that have purchased the A7R and especially the A7 would be better served with one of the Fuji or Olympus cameras or the new Sony A6000. I've...

  • We are not making stuff up out off thin air Paul, some of us actually owned and shot the 24-70, I am on my second copy, Phillip went through three? to get a good copy... So there is a QAQC issue as...

  • Sorry, I actually posted a shot taken at 49mm instead of the 70mm shot I intended which is below.
  • The Sony 24-70mm lens has been the subject of quite a bit of controversy and wildly conflicting opinions about its quality on this and other forums.  Consequently, it is with some trepidation that...
  • What I tried: FDn 35/2. Not impressed with sharpness wide open, especially at the sides/corners. It's better at f/2.8, but when compared to Sigma 30/2.8 (baffle removed) it looks like a veil is...
  • I thought I would post some images that show the Canon S95, RX100, NEX-7 with Sigma 30mm, and A7R with FE 35mm side by side.  Even though all of these cameras might be able to fit into some pockets...
