  2. Focus is great and quick, but as soon as I go to video the focus stays sharp but keeps running even if the subject doesn’t move. Here’s a link I shot (couldn’t attach the video here) https://imgur.com/a/z4FwBrb

  6. I know this topic is out there in abundance but I wanted to put it in a forum where Sony products wouldn’t be bashed! I saved my pennies and finally switched from a canon 80D, using an APS-C sensor, to a Sony A7iii in September. This was in an attempt to change my hobby into something that might make me some weekend money. Annoyingly I could only afford to buy the Sony with the native 50mm 1.8. Unfortunately, the love affair of had with the nifty fifty from canon was sorely missed. Working as a part time family lifestyle photographer, I found it just lacked.... Something. Anyway, I’ve once again been saving and want your opinions on diversifying the lenses at my disposal. I think I miss the focal length of my crop 50mm, so the highly praised Sony 85mm 1.8 the first lens in leaning towards but would you then chop the 50mm in for a little more towards say a Sigma art 35 1.4. If you were after 2 general lifestyle primes to go with a 70-200 canon f4, what would they be? Thanks for your thoughts and I’m pleased to be joking the community!

  10. TL;DR: got any recommendations for a cheap fast manual non-radioactive 50mm prime? I have an a6500 with the 16-70mm kit lens and also the 30mm f1.4 Sigma lens, which I love by the way. However, I want to use some legacy primes to experiment with different focal lengths, perhaps a tilt adapter later on, etc. I also don't want to use a radioactive lens, because firstly I don't have a basement in my small apartment to "hide" the lens away when I'm not using it, secondly, I have a dog, thirdly I just don't want to take the risk. I have shortlisted it to the following: Minolta rokkor-md 50mm 1.4 - might be radioactive?? but f1.4 is very fast and apparently it's sharp too Helios 44m 58mm f2 - this is a lens primed for its swirly bokeh but I've heard on crop sensor bodies the bokeh doesn't swirl as well Auto-Takumar 55mm f2 - this has great "soap-bubble" bokeh, and works well on crop mode. The only thing holding me back from pulling the trigger on this lens is that it may be radioactive (according to the Angry Photographer it's not but others say it is, and Pentax was notorious for radioactive lenses in that era) and also it's very RARE and fairly expensive. I'm in love with the look of the Takumar lenses, by the way. Konica 50mm Hexanon f1.7 - this lens is very sharp wide open and very inexpensive, don't think it's radioactive (is the bokeh any good?) Nikon 50mm f/1.8 AF/AFD - not that vintage but fairly cheap and certified non radioactive (lens-makers stopped using thorium in the mid-80's) Anyone got any suggestions/tested the radioactivity of these lenses? Also, does the radioactivity vary from lens to lens? Thanks.

  12. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-cBAICAiI74 Hi everyone, I have a Sony Zeiss lens (SAL50F14Z) that wobbles very badly. I tried to send it to Sony for repair, but the Sony repair center just sent it back and claimed that the wobble is *normal*. I personally do not believe it is normal, as I don't recall having this wobble before, and my other Sony Zeiss lens doesn't have that. Could the community give any recommendation what I should do? If this is really normal, then it's a big design flaw from Sony!

  16. Just received my beautiful Loxia 21mm and 50mm. Upon comparing the lenses I noticed that the 21mm has a significantly stiffer resistance when focusing compared to the 50mm. Anyone out there own both and can share their experience? Very much appreciate it. I might be over reacting to this, but after dropping that cash I am getting paranoid. Thanks!
  17. I found a used Leica Summicron-M 50mm f/2, type 4 (with the focus tab). It was in so-so shape, mechanically ok but with the aperture ring a bit loose and with a few small friction scratches on the rear element. It was also dusty inside, showing maybe traces of fungus. I took my chance and had it CLA'd and it turned out to be pretty good. Finally it wasn't fungus, just weird dust. The rear element scratches don't seem to affect the pictures. I am using it on my A7II with my Voigtlander close focus M adapter. I don't really like the focus tab handling, it feels awkward, maybe it's a question of getting used to. There is some vignetting wide open, easily correctable in post. No color shift in the corners. Here's a picture I took today, I think the 3d pop is rather stunning, and it is razor sharp, wide open. mile-end-anarchy by Colin Surprenant, on Flickr I'll post more picts shortly. Colin
  18. Ever since I had decided a while back that I was just going to shoot Fuji and Sony, I made the move to dump most of my Canon stuff (which was a pretty extensive collection). I successfully dumped about 12 lenses once I realized the A7R2 was the real deal and that it would work for me. Since then, I have bought the 28/2 and the 35/1.4 FE lenses. The 28 is compact, and renders nicely enough that it comes in very handy. The 35 was an inconsistent dog which was returned after a week of frustration (magical at the one thing it did well though which was centered subjects at close distances wide open). Since returning the 35, I have gone into a mode where I'm furiously looking for glass to put in front of this amazing sensor. I came to the point this morning where upon receiving my most recent purchase (Sigma 20mm 1.4 Art) that I have no completely bought back into a Canon glass system. I have since rebought (and resold) the 50L, rebought 85L2, Sigma 20mm and 50mm Art, and the Canon 200mm F2.0 IS all within the last two months. Adapting glass is not a perfect solution which is why I was hoping to buy into Sony completely. But seeing as my first experience with one of their expensive primes was complete shite, I was pushed back in the other direction to look for a fix for right meow. By my estimates, I've spent over 8k on Canon EF mount lenses recently while no longer owning a Canon EF mount body. This, to me is indicative of a major issue with Sony's ability to produce a line of impressive, consistent, and alluring lenses at comparable/acceptable prices. If they did have a solid line of lenses that I could trust, the cheese I just spent would all be in Sony's pocket already. I have owned a multitude of lenses in a multitude of different systems and the FE 35/1.4 was the first lens I've ever gotten that exhibited a blaring problem immediately upon mounting and shooting. This, combined with the subsequent reading I have done from lensrentals etc do not instill the confidence necessary for me to feel comfortable sending 1-3k to Sony for any lens right now. Go ahead and flame me if you want. But know that I would love for Sony to succeed and become a true contender as I have appreciated every bit of their innovation these past few years. Rant over. lol.
  19. Hello, About a year ago I bought my 50mm (SAL50F18) and since then I let it on my camera (wich is a SLT A37) almost all the time. Yesterday in a attempt to make a timelapse I tried to set my camera in other modes beyond the Program Auto but the camera returned me the following message: MF Invalid when AF/MF Select is set to Autofocus. Available with Manual Focus Is that had any relation with the fact that I almost never disassembly my lens from the camera? Because I can set to A/S/M mode when I try to use my 18-55mm (which I use sometimes) And yes for both I switch the lens and camera autofocus to MF, actually I just shoot in MF.
  20. Hi I have a new Sony A7ii with the 24-240mm Sony lens, my first full frame camera after shooting with a Canon 60d. I'm looking to add more lenses to the collection, probably starting with a 50mm. The Sony 55mm F1.8 Sonnar T is the one I want, but can't afford at this time! My budget is low, around $500 or less is better, so I'm wondering if anyone can recommend a lens to start. I'm ok with the third party manual lenses, realizing I will need an adapter, but finding it somewhat confusing as to what will work on the Sony A7ii. Also interested in a legacy lens, but I can't figure out which lenses will work with which adapters. Any other suggestions for a newbie? Thanks for your help!
  21. Hi everyone, This is my first post in SAF! I've got the Fringer Contax N - Sony E Adapter (V2) for my A7RII and adapted a Contax N Planar 50mm 1.4 on it. I enjoyed it so much with the accuracy and speed with assist of the PDAF system! The bokeh is nice and feels more like a Zeiss (very personal comment). But the chromatic aberration is significant. I've just had a holiday in Taiwan. I will share some of the photos here and more in my Flickr! Thanks!
  22. Hi! I have an A7. Ok this is me seeking opinions. I went to best buy today to have a look at this lens; http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00FSB799Q?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=ox_sc_act_title_1&smid=AAK72K4OIWDXL Obviously it's a great lens, perfect for what I am looking for (full frame, great for street photography, portraits and bokeh) correct? Of course, it's expensive. So while in the store, one of the employee's showed me his A7, along with a kid of 5 lenses along with adapters he purchased on eBay. Anywhere from a 1.8 50mm cannon, to other random lenses he seems to enjoy, for a total of 200$ What I am trying to decide is, is this $800ish, though exactly what I am looking for, smart? Or do I save 500 or so dollars and buy some cheap adapters and a decent 50mm 1.8 on eBay? Any recommendations are more than welcome !
  23. Hello all, could someone please tell me how the following lens's would work with my A7? I understand they are e-mount, but as far as I can tell they are not full-frame, so I want to know...will the 50mm act like a 75, and the 35 act like a 50mm? And will they end up as cropped images or would they in fact be full frame just a larger .mm because of the size of the sensor? thank you !
