  1. I bought the Sony 50mm f/1.8 for a video review on my youtube channel ParadiseBizz. It currently retails between $199 and $240, so it really doesn't break the bank. I checked in my camera menu (toolbox page 6 >> version) which firmware it came with and I saw that the latest firmware version 3 was already applied. If you don't have the latest firmware, it is easy to upgrade: https://www.sony.com/electronics/support/lenses-e-mount-lenses/sel50f18f With the new firmware the focus is SPOT ON, it is snappy and accurate. I never missed a shot. Even in video mode it is very good and reliable. The only problem in video mode: the AF motor is very noisy, you need to use an external mic. But overall, for a lens at this price point: very impressive.
  2. For a review on my Youtube channel ParadiseBizz I purchased the 7Artisans 50mm f/0.95 The sharpness at f/0.95 in the center is much better than I expected it to be, while the corner sharpness is almost the worst I've ever seen in a lens. In a real live photoshoot: You can get sharp images and decent results. However for f/0.95 I expected more of a smooth background - this is too busy for my taste. Also the colors are not great. I think the TTArtisan 50mm f/1.2 is the better choice in terms of price and image quality.
  3. I do lens reviews on my youtube channel ParadiseBizz. And I am more than happy to help and to recommend you something. Therefore it would be nice to know your budget. Are you ok with manual focusing?
  4. For my youtube channel ParadiseBizz I am frequently buying and testing lenses for my Sony a6100 and Sony A7RIV. I bought the Pergear 60mm f2.8 Macro, a manual focus APS-C lens. I did not expect much, since it only retails for about $220. But it was very sharp and the results impressive
