Merry Christmas To All!

Merry Christmas To All!

Hello and good morning to all! It’s just a day before Christmas Eve which means I will be taking it easy over the next couple of days so this means there may not be many posts between now and December 26th. I will still be here and will be working on my A7II review but I will be heading up to a log cabin in Northern Arizona for the next few days to enjoy the Holidays with family.

I hope everyone here is having a fantastic holiday week! I will be posting a couple of articles over the next 3 days and hope to have my full A7II review up by December 29th, 1st thing.

Below is a shot or two I snapped inside a bar last night that fills its interior and exterior with thousands of lights for Christmas. I felt it was the perfect opportunity for the Noctilux f/0.95. So what you see below is using the Noctilux wide open inside the bar, which was only lit with these lights.

Happy holidays to all and thanks for helping make 2014 another great year for!

Below, three shots OOC from the A7II and Leica Noctilux at 0.95. This lens turns reality into dreamland 😉 Thanks to Ken Hansen for the lens!






  1. Merry Christmas to you and your family. I am from China and I am one of your fans:)

    Have a happy holiday and looking forward to your A7II reivew.

  2. Happy Christmas and best wishes for the New Year to you Steve and all you family, from across the’pond’ Mant thanks also for running a great site, much appreciated.

  3. Steve and family, many thanks for all your posts in 2014, definitely provided inspiration, from an avid reader in the UK. Merry Christmas and a snappy new year

  4. Steve,

    Thanks for this year of inspiration, excitement, and opening up to new possibilities. And thanks to all the readers for insightful comments and inspirational posts! Merry Christmas, be safe, enjoy capturing images of family and friends, and let’s look forward to another great year in 2015.

  5. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, Steve! Looking forward to your A7 II review…and then the A9….oh won’t someone stop the madness! Lol

  6. So far all the pictures I’ve seen from the A7m2 have been great. But frankly I’m getting much the same pop and colors from my A7s…. What I’m really looking forward to seeming is a A7Rm2……would be happy with the same sensor (it’s in the D810 after all) but with A fix for the shutter issues, lossless raw, 5axis IS and same body updates as the A7m2… Between the A7s and this fantasy camera, for the way I shoot I’d never need to buy another camera again ( but don’t worry Sony I’d love to buy a bunch of glass if would just make it)

  7. Thanks for this year on your site, Steve. Happy Christmas! (The English tradition is it lasts twelve days, so that includes a good transition to 2015!) You’ve created one great varied site full of enthusiasm and the sheer pleasure of photography.

  8. Steve, merry Christmas to you, your family and your dog :-). Waiting for our review of the A7II to pul the trigger to upgrade my A7 either to a A7s or the new A7II.

  9. Merry christmas Steve, and merry christmas To your family !!! Thank you for what you do ! Much appreciated here ….

  10. Many memories of 2014, with many hopes for 2015. All the best to Steve and your Family during this season.
    Cheers, Fred Windberg

  11. I wish all of you a peaceful holiday season!

    Please stop posting Noctilux Images. At some point I will no longer be able to resist my cravings …

    Looking forward to plenty of interesting new blog entries in the new year!
