Last week I was extremely underwhelmed by my first unit’s performance, so was it better today ?
Yesterday I shot some landscapes and the output was a joy. Today, though I am pleased to report that I had cured all operational quirks. No more black out, acceptable AF, good shot to shot speed. But the files were noisier than they had the right to be.
So I’m sort of back to the drawing board. I think for a jpeg shooter like me it’s all about finding the proper Creative Style settings that emulate my NEX7’s output as closely as possible. The best level curve I’ve found is the Landscape preset, fine tuned a bit, alas it tends to enhance greens, which the A7 has an all to natural tendency to do yet.
I coudln’t resist the temptation to get a used Voïgtlander Nokton 40 1.4 Classic lens. It’s been warmly recommended to me and I’m very eager to test it. On another note I should also receive my Think Tank Retrospective 7 bag, for which I promess to make a full review post. Until then, keep shooting !
