The Lickey bank no less, captured in Oly colours!. Well done- you got out of jail free with this good shot @125th according to the EXIF.

We have actually seen much nicer portraits on the mfFT forum- was this done with the GF body? Skin tones are not too flattering. Probably a classic lens - camera combination on the EP/EPLs but it is way over priced.

Nice shot: well handled exposure and great composition.

I think we have to blame a mediocre photgrapher for taking some aweful instead of what the fanbois expect awesome shots. Not impressed.

But as several fanbois state : you can maybe save sony with hours in LR3 or photoshop on those massive raw files, which is what we all really want to do, with $3000 monitors....right...

DP review should be able to put together a better run of test shots from what must be a $2000 combination. The choice of shallow depth of field on many shots is ill adivsed if they are tyring to show the sharpness of the lens. It also would appear from exposure and contrast that sony have put their bucks on pixels over dynamic range.

The lens stopped down to f2.8 and a much improved shot over the f2 before.

At just stopped down, the result is soft and this shot is overexposed. Too much of a good thing with short depth of field.

Not a great shot alas, buit also it looks like Sony have gone for mega pixels over DR.

Why oh why not just use the APSC sensor from the D7000? Sony lenses are not up to 20 mpx, but I am prepared to see through this Zeiss album to be wronged!

Interesting Career Story: i had a pal who was pretty wellpro level with an EOS in the 80s but stuck to biology and ended up at Roslin Inst, edin Uni!

Love the james nesbit image.

Will have to get some more reflectors- good tip. I have one small pocket foldable alomsot and it is not enough.

Can someone explain the AF with TWO sensors? Is there a split light prism in there? Or is the second in that little eye thing above the lens???

Funnily enough this has lost EXIF. However, this is the "light" shot - okay, but not sharp enough. See the Light on Dark version a couple of shots to the left, worked in two layers in post proc'

On P9012541ligth on dark photo in Camp Freddy's photo gallery (1 comment in total)

This is two shots taken on a tripod and layered onto each other in GIMP. The lower or background layer was a darker exposure- good DOF and sharpness but not realistic feeling.

The top, now semi transparent layer, was a slight over exposure at f2.8 and shorter time, so it was soft and the lamps were glarey. Background was sharpened and lifted a bit, while the foreground had the highlights clipped in. The result was much better than either shot alone once the % transparency was about right.

On Just Posted: Sony NEX-7 pre-production samples gallery article (105 comments in total)

Sony make the best APSC sensors in the world, but not the best lenses or it seems the best Jpeg engines. I am far from "wowed" by the results in the gallery for the price- not a lot of these images are at f4 but still lack sharpness. DR is difficult to judge but colour rendition and gradation / tonal depth seems nothing to write home about so far.

In reply to:

GraemeF: I have mixed views on HDR - I definitely prefer the more natural look where HDR has been used to try to capture the scene as it looked to the human eye. I'm not so much of a fan of the over-cooked 'artificial' look that's often produced by HDR processing. However, that's just my personal taste. Photography is an art form - like any other art, it will polarise opinions....

It's a very informative and well written article. Thanks for sharing!

Very well put Graeme!

Looks like a serious entry to offer something between normal APSC and FF. Price per f stop under 3 for lenses is probably the best going.

In reply to:

StephenL: Maybe it's just me, but I'm a bit underwhelmed. I was looking forward to a faster mid-range zoom lens, not a gimmicky one.

Looks like you aren't going to get faster sub f3 zooms from panny, but Oly on the other hand ??

crazy small! Makes mFT even more "street" useable.

Remain to see if AF and image quality is as good as the mrk II from Oly.

Fast enough with good IOS1600 now, but you will need another couple of hundred spondoolics for sub f3 in a mid range zoom if it comes.
