100% crop from above
Added some extra sharpness to the Dynafit part of the this pic in PS with the High Pass filter function. it was taken at 1/60 so i got some blur.
Sharpend in LR and removed some CA from the bike spokes.
All pics above, Sony A7r + Sony Fe 28mm f2 @f2
Got some new found love for the Fe 28mm. I understood right away that it was a good lens, but after that it sort of fell in to the dark. 28 is not narrow like the 35 im used to, and its not wide like a 24. So it always felt wrong in my spine when i framed a shot and i didn´t get it right from the start.
But now, when its starting to settle, i realize this is an amazing lens.
200g or something ?(light as f…)
Fast af (Its got af! 🙂 im used to mf)
Even bokeh is nice!
This is a nifty 28! 🙂 Not quite pocketable but not far away either. Compared to the Nokton 17.5mm for m yEm5 i had befor i got the Sony A7r, the 28mm beats it on all levels. Its sharper, rather much sharper actually, so even though this is an f2 and its wider then the Nokton (35mm equvalent) and the Nokton would be an f1.9 in FF terms. The Fe28 feels like it gives more pop.
With the Mft system and the Noktons i always added some Highpass in PS when i was sharpening, even without highpass in the Fe28 shots you have more pop and sharpness. Editing can get you along way but the lack of detail, well, thats a fact. Kind of hard to get around.
CA is pretty apparent on the 28mm aswell, both green and purple, the difference is not that much better then the Nokton but, its clearly better.
And you get all this, at less then half the weight, half the price, in a smaller package, with AF, on a FF body, with less effort (both in post, and physically) …
I rest my case 🙂
Great trip and snow! 🙂
First and last pic, f2. the other 2, around f8. A7r + Sony fe28mm f2
Video shot on gopro hero3+
Sony A7r + Fe 28mm f2
First pic (and second) @f9 30 sec iso 100 + Nd1000 and crappy Pol-filter. Still sharp.
#1 is a 100% of the 2nd.
3rd pic @f2 iso 100.
The Sony Fe 28mm has got alot more distortion then the Voigtländer 17.5mm perhaps thats to be expected sence its wider then the CV 17.5?
Non the less, its got more. And wideopen i dont think it is as sharp either, perhaps they are pretty much equal there, because i cant seem to decide.
Maybe i´ll do some better test later on.
Em5+Nokton 17.5 pro list:
Body is smaller
Smaler RAW files
Faster camera (scrolling through pics, zooming etc.)
10(ish) pics per sec
Better allrounder (mostly goes for the camera body)
A7r+FE 28mm pro list:
Great dynamic range
Sharper? (By a really thin hair.)
Lighter (around 340g, the A7 strap is on the Em5 in the picture above:p)/smaller (shorter lens)
More “pop” (Even though f0.95 = f1.9 on fullframe)
Faster shutter speed
And the winner is…? Dont know really. That depends on alot of things. the 12-32, 7.5mm and the 40-150 probably weighs the same togeather as 1 zoom lens does for the A7r.
For allround use, the mft system is great, there are light and small lenses. Small bodies with IBIS. Sure the never A7´s got that too but then they will be alot bigger and heavier.
The MFT system´s got the Noktons, so you can get short DOF and great sharpness. And then we have the Fullframe sensor 🙂 It has alot of cons, but also a few important pros, too some people.
Am i one of those people? i Think so… Not totally shure though.
Time will tell…
