Zeiss 85mm f1.4 ZA, LA EA4 and the Sony A7s


Beautiful Andreia, late afternoon with the Sony A7s, the LA EA4 and
the Zeiss 85mm f1.4 ZA at 1.4.

As you know I love my mf Nikkor E series 100mm and the the Takumar 135mm f2.5 vers II. Great lenses, however, on those 1400 clicks/day shoots, manual focus just doesn’t cut it.

Model of the day: Reda

Shot with the Sony A7s and the Zeiss FE 24-70mm f4, wide open. I am seriously considering getting a second body, you can find great deals on Ebay right now, esp if you also shoot video, get the PAL/NTSC version.

Stephanie Shiu: shot with the Panasonic GH4: field report

Stephanie Shiu: On the hour: from Mike Kobal on Vimeo.

We talked about this shoot for weeks, scheduled, rescheduled and rescheduled again. A last minute booking or weather issues, too many reasons to list and I am sure many of you know how frustrating it can be to get everyone together on the same day.
