yes i try the E-mounth 35mm 2.8 in low light , and it was pretty fast and accurate , i try it when the model was doing her make-up in low light , for me its difficult to compare it with other camera`s , but what i try , it was pretty good .
at this moment i still have the camera (A7R) only with the LA-EA3 adapter and shoot with A-lenses , maybe over one hour i post some picture`s of a fox that i take yesterday
i hope you have something on my information

gustav


Hello Gustav:

Yes, that is exactly what I'm looking for. Just a hands-on opinion as to whether the camera will auto-focus in low light.

Thanks,
John

yesterday i pickup the new A7r at the SONY-office
together with the NEW E-MOUNTH 35mm 2.8 CZ ,and the adaptor LA-EA4
the camera is a pre-production model

i have this camera the next three day`s , after that it must back to sony.
three day`s are not long , so i must improvice.
my plan is to try three things
first , shoot a model , with flasgun(s)
second , some landscape`s (forest)
thirth ,and last , butterflies (zoo)

yesterday-evening i started with a model , i dicided to work with the new E-MOUNT 35mm 2.8 CZ , and the A-MOUNTH 70-200 2.8 SSM G

picture`s are taken on 64 ISO some of them on F13 , some of them F4.5 shutterspeed around 1/125
EXIF are also in the picture`s

here some result

the picture`s are strait from the camera ,because lightroom dont reed the RAW-file`s yet , so i shhot in RAW&JPEG

i have dicided to keep the camera , and not give it back to sony
i`m not theoretical technical , but this camera feels superb ,
build is very good ,
i like the sound of the shutter (its not softly)
the menu is also easy , and almost the same as alpha-menu

thanks for looking
gustav



Hello Gustav:

When you had the camera did you have a chance to determine if the A7R with FE lenses (35 or 50mm) was able to autofocus quickly and accurately enough to be used the way an available light event shooter would at a wedding or party? I've got a pre-order for the A7 and Steve Huff says the two cameras have about the same low light autofocus capability. The only thing he's vague on is how good that AF is.

Regards,
John

Viel Spass mit der neuen Sony, Gustav. Armes Model, jetzt sieht man sogar im Gegenlicht die Falten... Wirklich beeindruckend ist die Tatsache, dass auf den Aufnahmen keinerlei Überstrahlungen oder ähnliches zu sehen ist.
Fotografisch gute Arbeit, danke.
Much fun with the new Sony, Gustav. Poor model, now You can see any crinkle even with light from the background .... Very impressiv for me: There are no bloomings, lens flares or so.
Very good work, Gustav, thanks.

Hi Gustav,

Thanks for the reply.

Is it possible to provide a download of original file for one each from part 1 and part 2 at least? Many of your fans would like to look into the details of the impressive photos.

Or if you don't mind, can you send the files to my e-mail address : watchmyphoto@hotmail.com

Thanks!

Roger

I guess I'm late for the party here.

Gustav, it goes without saying that you are a great candidate to try all these new bodies before everyone else because you actually do them justice, so thank you very much for that.

I look forward to reading your other 2 days worth of shooting.

Lastly, I figured I may as well extend a huge welcome to all the NEW members of our Dyxum community, many of which have alread posted here. If any of you would feel so inclined you can always visit this thread to introduce yourself to us

That is so true :) The promo Gustav makes for Sony lenses and cameras is priceless!!!

The other reviews have left me with mixed feelings; on the other side Gustav pictures leave me impressed every time. It makes me wonder how much more than me he could squeeze out of my equipment ;)

He needs to get a commission on each A7R sold.
