    Wally The Confused reacted to ChrisLewis in Low-light, wide-angle lenses for A7iii   
    In anyone's book the 35mm 1.8 is certainly a wideangle lens, ultrawide was not specified, the others are just for information. The 24mm GM was mentioned by another poster but the OP specified that it should not break the bank, so I was offering an alternative. The 28mm f2 is also worth considering but in Sony land there isn't a cheap, fast ultra wideangle yet. There is also the 20mm f2 Tokina if the AF noise isn't a bother and the IQ acceptable. The trouble is that cheap, fast and wideangle are rare companions.

    Good poses. Face expression is quite natural. Aperture priority mode is just perfect.

    Nice color combination with soft light. But to be honest, I didn't like the tongue showing expression.

    Are you certain your Red-Eye reduction is not actib=vated ? It would explain the numerous flash bursts you are describing
    Are you certain your flash exposure compensation is set at 0EV ? It would explain the overexposure

    I agree, my a9 meets all of my current needs, it’s still the best sports camera in the world in my opinion.

    Received my a7R4 from repair today. They said they ordered a part to fix my Slot 1 issue. Also, cleaned the sensor reset to factory defaults & a general wipe down cleaning of the camera. Tried the camera & all seems fine. It was a warranty repair, n/c.

    Wally The Confused reacted to Rogue_odyssey in First Lens for Sony A7III, Best Image Quality   
    A concept I learned in the military and still apply today is the mission drives the gear. If I'm going out to photograph people I'll reach for a portrait lens. If I'm going to go photograph landscapes I'll reach for my wide angle lens. If i have no idea what i might photograph I'll reach for my general purpose 24-105mm lens. I get the most joy out of photography when i have the right tool for the job. I don't think f4 is too restrictive in low light situations given the A7iii's performance. Just have reasonable expectations for that aperture in low light. I believe if you keep the camera profile small and light (hey that's the reason we went to mirrorless, right?  then you'll find the experience more enjoyable.

    I don't think OP cares anymore as he posted his message as 'urgent' half a year ago and never commented on any of the suggestions.

    Wally The Confused reacted to Mikey Leigh in Sony 70-350 APSC zoom lenses on a7 series   
    Hello,
    Has anyone tried the new sony 70-350 APSC on a full-frame a7 series?   For some of the APSC zoom lenses, the image pretty much covers the entire full-frame sensor when fully zoomed.  I would use this lens on my a7r3 at 350 all the time for bird and small wildlife, so bad vignetting at shorter focal lengths is not an issue, and slight vignetting at 350 is also OK.    I hike a lot, and the 100-400 is just too heavy! 
  11. Thanks
    Wally The Confused reacted to Pieter in Sony 70-350 APSC zoom lenses on a7 series   
    Are you sure your A7R4 didn't automatically switch to crop mode when putting on the 70-350? That would explain why it doesn't vignette.
  12. Thanks
    Wally The Confused reacted to Pieter in Sony 70-350 APSC zoom lenses on a7 series   
    It was the very question the original poster was interested in: does the 70-350 cover more than the APS-C sensor size? Your post doesn't answer that question.
    Some APS-C lenses do, like the 10-18 f/4: If you put it at around 14 mm it has an image circle which covers a fullframe sensor, so there's no need to use auto-crop and loose a lot of megapixels.
    If you want to really help the OP (and others with the same question), grab your A7R4, disable auto APS-C, shoot some photos at 70, 200 and 350 mm and post them here so we can all evaluate them to see how much of a usable fullframe image one can get out of this lens.
  13. Thanks
    Wally The Confused reacted to Roy in Sony 70-350 APSC zoom lenses on a7 series   
    Thank you, I think I read it incorrectly.
    I have messaged the OP with the below update........
    I think my answer to your post may have confused the issue.
    The 70-350 will vignette in full frame mode, you would have to have it either on auto apsc mode or change it to that in the menu.
    It will then have no vignetting and give you approx 105-525 eqv.
    You will 'only' have 26 megapixels then but as Mark Galer says that is still more than most APSC cameras
    It's a great sharp lens and light to carry.
    I hope this corrects my post.
    It has been pointed out to me that I didn't answer your question correctly

    The a9 is a beast.... The auto-focus latched on so quick with the 70-200 that I think all my shots were in focus. The only ones that missed were those where I could not put the focus point on the bike, as they were moving so fast.

    As far as I know, this is the only lens, Sony advocates for video  ?
    I have no idea, since I only do stills !

    I like the top one a lot, though I'm wondering about a tighter crop. She has great eyes and putting them on the rule of thirds brings my eye straight to them.
