Okay so today I received a Lensrental Sony A7-II and I'm impressed. Getting home at 6:30, loading a memory card and rushing out without learning diddly about the camera, turns out it was in JPEG mode, so I'm not posting any pics!!! Fact is, I was measurably impressed after all the negative buzz about the menus that I was able to wade my way through take a few photos with a rented Zeiss Loxia lens and change that out for my old Contax CY 85mm F/1.4 on a Novoflex and have it actually take some shots. Darkness fell rapidly so I had only about 30 minutes in the garden before the curtain fell... and it was time to go for dinner. What impressed me? 1) Smaller than my Fuji X-PRO2. Almost too small and begging for either a bracket or battery sup on the bottom to give a little more grip. 2) Weighs a TON!!! Put the 85mm and it's a real brick! and forces you into classic holds the Fuji didn't require. But the heft actually makes it easier to hold steady I think. 3) Shutter is waaaaaay loud. I all but had my Fuji shutter on silence, and this doesn't seem to have that choice. Not sure why, but it didn't seem to scare off the rabbits that ran past me. 4) Getting the focus zoom to work with a manual adapted lens is something I've done once by accident, but I'll have to go through pressing everything to figure it out again. I will figure it out. This is just what we do, huh? 5) Zeiss Loxia... wow! REALLY nice handling! Contax CY Zeiss is nice... but this is a real step up. I've gone through the menus and guessed at some of what they're about to set it up for my style of shooting, so we'll get another couple of shots tomorrow in the a.m. and evening p.m. Technically I have until Monday to decide whether I'm keeping it... but the fact is, I am. A second battery of Fuji lens and camera sales will leave me with a backup Fuji and my old Zeiss and Olympus OM Zuikos from film days... but that will be plenty. Somewhere in here I will likely need an auto lens... but no rush!!! Anyway... so you guys have really been on to something. Sweet! Y'know, I've loved my Fujis, mirrorless and the whole nine yards, but this is about facilitating a way of shooting I prefer and sort of backed into. Who knew? Will post some photos after the weekend.
