First picture with an adapted lens on my A7iii. Nikkor 24mm. Now to reassign a different button other than the down button to focus magnification.

Really nice shots with the Hexanon 57mm!
Thanks! Trying to expand my usage of this great bit of glass, beyond the yummilicious wide open bokeh shots I’m always tempted to relegate it to. It can be very, very sharp on the Rii.....

For this trip, I only brought the Minolta 24 and the Konica, and decided to use just the Konica as I’ve been relying too much on the 24 and wanted to make sure I’m not getting stuck in a view. Interesting place to be, considering that not long ago I had never shot with a 24 and ALWAYS defaulted to 50s.

Yeah, I have C2 on my a7ii set to that and use it a lot. I still have to figure out how to program the iii to use it too.
It's a learning curve as they aren't the same camera, that is for sure.

Tried my hand at focus stacking for this one with the Tokina 80-200mm f2.8. I used only three images - I think five would have yielded a better result. There are some blurry zones...

Here's one of my early test shots with my Techart pro - I think this was with a Helios 135mm/2.8

The Minolta 45/2 was my very first lens, back when it could be purchased as a kit lens for Minolta 35mm bodies. I still have it for mostly sentimental reasons, but have an MD adapter. I used it a fair bit on my NEX-5N which was my first mirrorless. Seeing your images, I think I need to pull it out of the drawer and give it a spin on the A7ii. :)

I don't know why, but it isn't regularly top of mind for me -- or at least it wasn't for a time -- but lately I have found it just works so darn well for so many things it keeps popping up despite itself (myself?). I also really like how small it is, even on the relatively ginormous MD adapter.
