looks like you nailed the focus on that shot,

long glass like that 135mm lens isn't a problem with the a7/a7r, it's the wide glass that's a nightmare.

I have half a dozen old 24mm's, including two copies of the vaunted 24mm 2.8 sigma... they all have issues on my a7r, none of 'em really "pop".

Hi Dan,

I guess you have seen Ray's (Old Pirate's) incredible shoot http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/1502948988/photos/2045015/ which he took MF.

My question is what issues do you have with your 24mm lenses? I have a Minolta 20mm/f2.8 MD and I use it with great joy on my A7 (I am just a fun-photographer, though). IMHO, Sony has designed the A7 specifically for photography geeks who are willing to spend thousands on buying old legacy lenses. I am not sure, if this was done deliberately, though. Anyhow, I would not have bought the A7 without this "special feature": state-of-the-art digital imaging technology combined with utterly cool, retro, pure-metal-glass lenses. I am thrilled.

All the Best and thank you, Miki
