    A couple shots from my weekend outing! I have a Sony 28mm f/2 FE lens coming, so I'm hoping to up my stealth factor with an AF wide angle. The Voigtlander 58mm forces me to shoot fast, but I miss quite a few photo ops from not having AF! I wish there was a fast 135mm AF native prime. The 70-200 variations are too big for the way I street shoot. I'm also considering if I want to get an A7S or A7 II for a second body, but I can't decide! :D
    All pics taken with the Sony A7 and Voigtlander 58mm 1.4:

    Nice shots!

    Picture of the RX-7 brings back memories. I had a white 1984 RX-7 GSL-SE. First time Mazda used the twin rotor 13B Wankel engine in a production car. You could easily rev it up to 10,000 rpms and had an awesome power band between 3-5000 rpms.

    I was still a kid when these cars were new, but they still look pretty awesome! The more I reluctantly lean towards minivan territory with my growing family, the more I start wanting a small agile sports cars just for myself! Lol

    Great series! Love old skool cars so the RX-7 shot is a favourite but #6 is the best of the bunch for me ;)

    Very nice! I also like the 1st gen RX-7 shot. Being a motorhead.

    Since a lot of you are car buffs, I'll keep an eye on all the exotics and rare classics I see around LA! I see everything from replica 'Back to the Future' Doloreans to old school Datsun Zs only driven at night by discreet car owners!

    I imagine LA has a lot of custom and restored cars
