  • Replied in Sony a9
    No, but I convinced the wife to go shopping on Saturday so there is a camera store not far from the mall we (I) can stop and check it out. MJ
  • I have not been hearing much about adapting m lenses on the Panasonic. If they worked well I would have thought there would be more positive news. So far, the Panasonic AF appears from reviewers as ...
  • Replied in Sony a9
    There does appear to be a possible SL2 coming but I don't think it will address the issues I have with the SL system. I think the best possible solution is to keep the SL for m lenses and pickup a ...
  • I think they make quite a pair.
  • I was hearing the adapted m lenses on the Panasonic were not good or even close to adapted on SL. You tested this already? Other thing that bothers me is AF on Panasonic does not sound great with ...
  • Really, I don’t think I have ever said eh? Our prime minister already does a good enough job making look like idiots.
  • Replied in Sony a9
    i have seen a lot of examples with the a9 and the AA filter does not appear to degrade the image that i can see.As for colors, they are not as warm as the Leica but a good profile can fix that in ...
  • Replied in Sony a9
    with the SL there are a few annoyances that are hard to overcome. i.e. NR, hate waiting for it to finish before taking next shot, HSS during outdoor events using off camera flash, tethering to my ...

    good images, it appears you have a good copy of both the lens and teleconverter. Thanks for sharing. MJ

    I did not realize the a9 has a AA filter, do you think it degrades the images any ? MJ
  • Created discussion thread Sony a9
    I have had the Leica SL since introduced w/24-90 lens. Through the yrs picked up a 50 and 35 lux. With back button magnification I am getting pretty good at getting focus. I miss long telephoto ...

    Its a high iso example, with the sun going down shows the DR of the SL. I like the pic but to each their own. This is one from 2018, iso 800 SL 601 f/4.0. If the Sony is as good then I have no ...

    The examples from the Sony 135 f/1.8 GM look amazing. he bokeh looks good as well. If I did more portrait work then it would be on the list. I found Sony has a 90mm f/2.8 G macro that I think is ...

    Fair enough, its not the sharpest in the collection, but it is one of the best posing shots. These are a little sharper. The lens was a good copy.
  • Replied in Sony a9
    Good to hear, I am sitting here trying to pull the trigger on the purchase but I am short a few days of OT to pay for it. Not sure if the Sony price is permanently reduced or just for a limited time. ...
  • Replied in Sony a9
    Its a big leap of faith. I just sold the last of my Nikon gear. Leica flash does work in HSS with godox or pro photo flashes. I cannot tether with C1 Pro as I use to do with my Nikon.  The new ...
  • Replied in Sony a9
    I can rent the 70-200 from a retailer and try but I don't think they have the 100-400 lens. The sample images on this forum from the 100-400 G do not appear as good as the 70-200 GM examples. The ...
  • Replied in Sony a9
    I am quite fine to keep the SL for the m lenses. I am more concerned with spending a lot of money on a new kit with so so results. MJ
  • Replied in Sony a9
    My intent is to keep the SL for the L + M glass as the images are amazing when you nail the focus. I am looking at the 24 f/1.4 GM, 50 f/1.4 GM, and 85 f/1.4 GM lenses with the 70-200 f/2.8 in the ...
  • Replied in Sony a9
    I looked yesterday and did not find all that much, this is not why I would be buying the a9 but would be a bonus if it did work. Still sitting here with camera in the shopping cart, its not cheap ...
