Sony A7 with Canon 50mm f1.2 LTM Lens Test Part One
At Film Foto Forever, we are all about film photography. At the same time we know that sometimes digital photography is a necessity. My first really decent DSLR was a Nikon D7100. It is a fantastic camera and I cannot recommend it enough. As good as the Nikon was, I recently decided to trade it in for a Sony A7. Although I am just an amateur photographer, I really wanted a full frame camera. I also really wanted to experiment with vintage glass. The Sony A7 was the perfect fit. So far I do not regret my decision. It is a truly awesome camera. I purchased a Metabones Leica M to Sony NEX adapter to use for the Leica Mount lenses I wanted to test first. The first lens I wanted to try out was a Canon 50mm f1.2 lens with a Leica Thread Mount. I hope to do several tests with many different lenses and turn this into a regular blog post. The following is my first test with the Sony A7, Metabones Adapter, Leica LTM to M adapter and Canon 50mm f1.2. As I mentioned earlier, I am by no means an expert, so please forgive me if these tests aren't very technical. You can see the results for yourself!
All Shots were made with a tripod and converted to .jpg in Lighroom with zero changes made. Focus was on the very center ornament.
I will add more real world tests to this lens soon. The Metabones adapter works flawlessly and I can't recommend it enough. I am also very impressed with the Canon Lens. The bokeh has a unique look and for being a f1.2 lens, it is fairly lightweight and compact and pairs well with the A7.
