Okay so I'm back and beginning to edit, here is my first one. It may end up being one of my favorite photos I ever captured. The site is "Sunset Rock" in Kalambaka / Meteora overlooking the valley. I took hundreds of pics this night. this is a bracket of 3 - not necc going for HDR but getting this exposure right was challenging and I didn't want to miss it . I took a ton of shots at different f stops, ISO, focal lengths and shutter speeds. This is the first group I chose to edit and pretty much representative of what I saw that night - enjoy (more to come)

So far have incredible pictures of Greece. Took 1000's. Been in Athens and Kalambaka(Meteora). Here is a jpeg transfer straight ooc as example. I am kind of screwed with a near full moon right in line with galaxy but this is when I got to come so I will make the best of it. Also in santorini and have wonderful photos but overcast and cloudy today so sunset may be a wash.

Not at all interested in the astro pictures, but the other ones, yes, please, share. Greece is wonderful

The only low light areas that may have tempted me to go to the 50/1.8 have been "no photo" locales. Will use the 14mm 2.8 once I get to Santorini for astro.


Please do share the astros! I haven't had much to say above all the great responses to this thread but would very much enjoy how you get on with the 14/2.8 in such a location.

Without going through all the replies, you asked a question very similar to mine, a platform with multiple format lenses. To me, the answer is to buy one more body to use all the other lenses you have via an adapter. The 14/2.8mm was the sharpest one on my A7r..and 70-210F4 Minolta as well. The convenience of having a sharper lens makes you understand how good your camera is...and the convenience of having two mounted bodies saves a lot of time..and need to clean those dusts off sensor.

That is weird. The QC is the lens, not the packaging so it makes sense it was not picked up by QC. But still, weird.

Inform the store, they probably will send you a replacement cap.

I got notice last pm that my lens Zeiss 16-35/4 had arrived. I went and picked it up today and it looks gorgeous but was kind of troubled by something - imside there was the usual package inserts and a "card" that had the name of the individual that had inspected my lens and performed QC. However my lens was missing a rear lens cap. KInd of makes me a bit nervous that Zeiss/Sony would ship a lens without a cap. Everything was still sealed and otherwise looks great. NO imperfections or dust noted on the rear exposed elements but I was disappointed to see that none-the-less. Luckily I have a couple extra lens and camera caps. I am sure after I take a few pictures though I will forget all about it.

I've got the 24-240 and use if on my A7R. It is good lens for what it is. You can get nice and shape images if you have good technique. The only real issue I have with the lens is the that in low light it hunts a lot. That might be do my A7R. I would think the on an A7III it would hunt less. I would also bring an ultra wide zoom of some kind. For me that would be my Minolta 17-35G and LA-EA4 or possibly my Sigma 12-24 (1st gen).

When I said never, I did not mean never but a superzoom wouldn't be my first choice.

Four lenses seem okay. That btw was a good deal on that 24-240!
