A girl and her hat: Maria S.

A quick shoot with Maria and the Zeiss 55mm 1.8 wide open on the Sony A7. This setup is now officially my favorite standard lens/body combo.
Af is spot on in good light, even when the model moves a lot, the keeper rate is much higher then during my Canon 5Dmk3/50mmL 1.2 and Nikon D800/50mm 1.4 days. Of course I am still using Canikons, however, nothing beats the current Zeiss 55mm for full figure and 3/4 location shots. A few more shots after the break

    you are welcome. Yes, mis-focus with dslr’s esp when shooting wide open in the 1.2~2.0 range. very frustrating, much better with the A7/55, even if the system doesn’t evolve, this lens/body combo alone is worth it :)

    I found this excellent website. you provided photo examples and equipment info and also much of exif info. The keeper rate you mentioned is very valuable. I moved from m4/3 to DSLR and realized pictures were nicer but also encounter lots of misfocus going on. Thank you!!!
