The Obligatory Cat Picture (A7R II)

Sony A7R II

Get Sony A7R II and Sony FE 90mm at B&H Photo.

A cat picture is de rigeur for reviewers and especially fanboys (I don’t qualify on the latter as my Sony posts make rather clear).

This is a serious image—well worth looking at to see how the Sony 90mm f/2.8 performs on the Sony A7R II. Includes comments on a bad sample problem, though this image succeeds in spite of it.

The Obligatory Cat Picture (A7R II)

Includes color and grayscale versions as well as a very large crop in color and grayscale.

Check out the grayscale version at 6048 pixels wide (24.3 megapixels). I reiterate my view that both the Sony A7R II and the Canon 5DS R are superior black and white cameras to the Leica M Monochrom Typ 246: vastly superior tonal mapping to grayscale (from color), many more pixels that are every bit as good or better when downsampled to 24MP, and the Sony A7R II at ISO 25600 looks better than the Leica MM246 at ISO 25600.

It was so funny—this “beta” cat was being stalked by the black alpha, acting like a lion on the Serengeti stalking the striped beta tabby as if she were a gazelle, but with a twitchy bitchy tail motion. They both knew the game and the striped tabby got out of the way. I almost had the shot of the encounter, but shutter speeds were too low to act fast enough (was on a tripod).
