stevo23: OK this one is a total dud. Terrible jpg processing makes it look like something from an iphone or worse..

We've added RAW conversions for all the shots plus a handful of others in a variety of ISO and shutter speed/focal length combos.

stevez: I like that you've shown a large variety of images with different lighting, lenses and exposure combinations. CA is virtually nonexistent at least to my eye. Colors are very natural although I'm not overly impressed with the level of detail, mostly in low contrast areas. I suspect that may be the JPEG engine?

camcom12: Shadows appear nearly black (00,00,00). Needs at least some shadow recovery.

Team Thor Expeditions: I really cannot see the point of "critical focus" in any of these shots. I wonder if it is a camera thing or the specific lens or a combo. Any comments?

In general I'd say the focusing worked pretty well. There is a mixture of the 55mm, 70-200, and 16-35 in the gallery. In this shot the tree is in critical focus. Make sure you wait for the site to fully load the file as it will appear OOF for a second as it loads.

CaPi: Nice shot. But I somehow wonder if this might be a camera better suited for RAW only usage

camcom12: Very deep shadows are distracting. Needs some shadow recovery work. This would show a truer test of the sensor's noise & dynamic range limits, I think.

R Stacy: Interesting, but I'm not sure f11 was the right choice here. There is so much background and deep shadow, I dono, I'd like to see this at about f4 or 5.6 focused on the subject.

I agree with you, I think f4 would have brought the subject to the eye more effectively. Thanks for the feedback!

In reply to:

camcom12: Shadows appear a bit mottled, void of detail, at least on my monitor. Are these images "right out of the box" jpeg defaults, or were parameters tweaked a bit, or raw then post processed? Most Sony cams can be set to produce very substantial shadow recovery if jpegs are the desired output.

Check the gallery again, we added all RAW conversions plus a variety of additional shots to show ISO and shutter speed variations. The original gallery was just out-of-camera jpegs.

Zorak: As we are on a gear site, it would be nice to give technical informations about the shooting. Were they shot in raw, processed in LR, or were they shot in jpg, which settings, etc...

Check the gallery again, we added all RAW conversions plus a variety of additional shots to show ISO and shutter speed variations. PP limited to exposure, WB, and minor color tweaks.

dominic2: Is this all you have? Where are high ISO shots. A7 II is not not expected to have problems with landscape shots.

HaroldC3: Curious as to why on the last 10 shots an EC of -1 and -1.3 was used? These scenes were obviously underexposed because of this (look at the beach shot).

As a crop shooter, I expected a lot better sharpness and detail from such an expensive body and lenses.

I guess that goes to show just how close the gap is between crop and full frame in that category.

jeanpierre19: great pictures indeed. could be better developed, to obtain more sharpness, detail and dynamic. ACR is not always the best Raw-Converter. Have a look to other and try it out! It would be an advantage for the Zeiss 16-35/f 4.0! Please retryit and let us show how great your pictures will be......

Check the gallery again, we added all RAW conversions plus a variety of additional shots to show ISO and shutter speed variations. The original shots you viewed were strait out of the camera jpegs.

iAPX: Would like to see RAW results, I am pretty sure the Alpha 7II sensor deserve more than out-of-camera JPEG.

(and yes I don't understand mirrorless small cameras with big lenses, no weight gain, no price gain, and it's not as balanced that a dslr with grip with equivelent lenses. But still Sony have really great cameras!)
