    IMG_2236.JPG so I picked up this lens from a local camera store used. Really cheap. Under 300.00

    I tried it with my 7rii and mc-11, did not focus, tried it with my 7rii and fotodiox adapter, did not focus.

    Tried it with my 7ii and the Mc-11 did not focus. Tried it with the 7ii and the fotodiox adapter and BINGO

    Here are my first couple shots as I made my way to the zoo.

    Yeah, that flamingo shot rocks! Any idea why the lens doesn't like A7RII? In any case, a 70-200mm f/2.8 autofocus lens for less than $300? :bravo-009:

    No idea. I don't have the latest update, works fine for me so I'm always weary about the software updates. I have not updated the mc-11 either so that could be it. And yes I could not believe the price tag of 279.00. I thought it was a mistake. Came with both lens caps, hood, and tripod collar. Guy even gave me a padded lens case for it with a shoulder strap.

    Love the look of these. Not sure if it's from the lens or that way you edited them, but it sure works for me!

    Thank you. I post processed in VSCO for iPad. Uploaded raw to iPad Pro. Just used the Porta 160 preset with a little tweaks.

    IMG_2295.JPG IMG_2296.JPG So I tried again with the 7rii got it to focus. Does not focus at 200mm but it does at 199.

    Really nice 3D pop too.
