On article Using third-party lenses on the Sony a7 / a7R (522 comments in total)
In reply to:

Niala2: What did I miss..? I'll ask my question naivaly:
How come the issue of "MODERN thirt party lenses" is not even mentioned? Is it anounced as an other, in depth article?
Is it logic that modern lenses just work perfectly and thats it?
I cannot imagine to be the only one to wonder how for instance Zeiss' ZE/F 35MM f1.4 or 50mm macro, or Canon TS 24mm( all with Metabones smart-adapter) perform on the 7R...

You're not alone, I was wondering the same, especially as people who want to change from another system would like to know, if they can use their existing modern lenses so it would not be such a costly proposition.
Anyway I've decided to stay with Canon, and considering that this is their first iteration we'll have to wait until next year or so until they come up with the next version of these Sony cameras which I'm sure will be better.
This system is too expensive to buy just so you can use your vintage lenses.

I find it hard to connect with images containing no people.
As much as I'd like to connect with the universe, I can't claim to own pictures of the universe as they all belong to NASA.
How can you get model releases from people in the street who are part of a larger happening?

The proof of the pudding is in the IQ.
Waiting for some review of this one, looks good on paper.
