My Adoration for the Sony A7 series and the Leica 50mm Summilux f1.4 ASPH Lens
by Jonathan Peterson
To begin, I must say that I love your website. Like a ton. You’ve brought together a great community of artists and enthusiasts who gather to discuss photography and the wonderful products that show up on the shelves. I visit your website multiple times a day for inspiration and to read your views on some of my most beloved cameras.
I’m talking about the wonderful line of cameras from Sony: the A7, A7R, A7S, and A7II. I own the A7R, in particular. I LOVE this thing. I received it soon after its release and have loved it ever since. I paired it with the Leica 50mm Summilux f1.4 ASPH lens and have managed to create some decent images. I’m a U.S. Navy Sailor, so I get a chance to visit some very cool places. In fact, I’m stationed in Japan at the moment. Please enjoy some of my favorite images.
Thanks for your time and effort in this website, Steve. Please take care!
Very nice! I really like how “bright” and happy your photographs are. I also love the 50 summilux on my a7r And would like to follow your work. Very inspiring! Do you have 500px?
I don’t have 500px but I do have a Flickr account:

Nice shootin’ soldier. Excellent choice of equiptment.
Thanks, buddy. It still serves me well to this today.
You have an ability to capture emotion and do it in a very sincere and simple way. Good luck with your future plans!

Well I’m sure you’ll get there. Every photo you take makes you better. There’s no other way to learn but to take photos (and to look at other people’s). I really liked some of these. Fantastic.

A great little post, I thought the photo of the guy in the red cap, and the servicemen in light brown uniform with heads bowed were especially good shots. Please share your flickr or similar if you have one!

Wow, what a great site! Thanks for sharing. I’m digging his style.
+1 to all!
Beautiful shots! Perfect use of the shallow DoF!
Really nice images, especially love the shrine bell and the woman with the sea slug. Kyushu?
Actually that one was from a visit to Guam. Wonderful location! Most of the others were taken in the land of the rising sun.
Love the picture if the bell. Good choice of focus point.
Nice pictures. Liked them all.
Fantastic photos! They have a friendliness, joy, and seriousness that is tangible. I’m saving up for that lens and one of the A7’s! Thank u for sharing them.
