last weekend i try out the new A7s with the SAL500mm F4 lens , and use the LA-EA4 adapter

It was a cloudy day , with in the beginning a lot of rain , later that day , the rain stop , and after a few hours the sun come`s to .

1


2


so the rain stopt , and there where only clouds , i like that, because you get great colours , only negative is that your shutterspeed is low , but with this new A7s ,you can go high up in your iso.

3


4


5


6


7


now the sun come`s , and it`s time to dry and clean the feathers

8


9


10


11


at last we saw also the female with a fish

12


All picture`s are taken in a hide , and with a trypod
when i started with this combination , i was afraid that the AF-speed was not fast enough , but i was wrong , the AF-speed was fast , i have very sharp picture`s with high iso , and low shutterspeed
thanks for looking , the EXIF is in the picture`s

Awesome as always! Recently I have been wondering a lot about the speed of autofocus on either the A7 or the A7r so that is very nice to hear. I love photo 11 especially because I don't think I've ever seen a kingfisher grooming himself quite like that before.
I detest bugs, especially spiders.

Wow, great pictures, I especially like #1 and 2 for the rain.

The LA-EA4 operates much the same as the LA-EA2, no? Which means fast regardless of camera? At any rate, does the LA-EA4 also make a sound like knives being sharpened when it goes to sleep and when it wakes up?

Must have been quite a sight: Big lens, small camera. Great set Gustav.

Hey Gustaf, but is the AF of this setup quick enough to do BIF's ?

Great shots and good to see you went back to the bird that made you famous. #1 is the best imo, #2 the least good because of the background. Wonderful work Gus
