That's working out well. What adapter are you using to mate the FD to the Sony?

Best,
-Tim

Looks pretty sweet, especially the second one. Can we see some more bokeh? Especially with crazy lights in the background?

Thank you. Is it a straight Canon FD to SONY E adapter or does it go through like FD to Leica M, Leica M to SONY E?

I too would like to see some more images with lights in the background.

Very nice samples. How easy/difficult is it to focus with the A7?

I shot the exact same kit last weekend. I am loving focus peaking because I can focus any portion of the frame. This means I can compose how I want and not worry if autofocus is going to understand what I'm going for. I still catch myself centering my focus point and recomposing out of habit, but it's a habit I'm looking forward to breaking.
