Sony A7R II: Time for Field Shooting

Sony A7R II

Get Sony A7R II and Zeiss Batis at B&H Photo.

Now that I’ve nailed down many of the operating and imaging characteristics in my review of of the Sony A7R II, it’s time to get out and do some field shooting, so things will go a bit quiet here for 4-5 days.

I’ve received a replacement sample of the Sony 90mm f/2.8 Macro G OSS, which I need to test this afternoon to rule out a right-side blur problem as seen with the first sample.

Update: being very rushed I could only spot check the Sony 90/2.8 and the Sony/Zeiss 35/1.4. The 90/2.8 does not look encouraging. The 35/1.4 is skewed forward on the right, just like the mid-Spring sample I shot on the Sony A7R. The same issue is reported by other readers, see the notes by James K at the end of the 90/2.8 bad sample post. I”m going to be cautious and do most of my shooting with the Zeiss Batis lenses, which served me admirably back in June.

I also have the Zeiss Batis 25mm f/2 Distagon and Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8 Sonnar, which are about as good as it gets on Sony mirrorless, so I’m looking forward to seeing how they deliver on 42 megapixels and with no concerns about shutter vibration on the A7R II (using the EFC shutter). And I have the Sony/Zeiss 35mm f/1.4 Distagon and the Sony/Zeiss 16-35mm f/4 OSS Vario-Tessar for additional perspective.

Too much yet just right—nice to be able to shoot a variety if not to carry it all at once. And with certain other interesting items, my days will be long.
