  2. Hello Folks, I'm hoping for some feedback on "Long Zoom" lenses from actual users. My head has been spinning with all the options available, Sony, Tamron, Sigma, Used, New, OS, non OS, etc. After tentatively deciding on either the Sigma 50-500mm or the Tamron 150-600mm, I discovered neither lens was offered for Pentax K mount, my current system. That wasn't exactly bad news. I enjoy my Pentax cameras, but have a strong preference for EVF and welcomed the chance to buy another Sony. I once had the a77 and don't recall why I sold it. I loved the camera and got great results. I guess I just wanted something new? Well, I've ordered an a77ii and it will arrive Wednesday, with the 18-135mm and 55-3oomm lenses. I'm looking forward to enjoying my new camera while I make a final decision on which long zoom to buy. We have a trip planned for late May through Teton and Yellowstone Parks, so that's my time frame to buy the new lens. I strongly value user opinions over professional reviews and spec sheets. Any advice or comments will be really appreciated! Thanks! Jack
  3. Does anyone have experience with this lens on the sony a6000. I found a used one for sale for $75 (Canadian) and apparently is e mount. Thanks!!! JSS
  4. In my latest blogpost i´m taking the Canon 85mm 1.8 for a testride again, this time with the Sigma MC11 Adapter on the mighty Sony A7rII. See why this is another great affordable Canon lens which you can use on your Sony which gives you great looking 4K Video and very sharp photos with very nice bokeh! http://www.dsphotoblog.com/?p=2764
  5. The last 3 days i have been visiting a Street Artist Festival in Linz, Austria the "Pflasterspektakel" A perfect event to test my trusty Canon 70-200 F4 L again using the MC11 Adapter. Take a look at lots of images with these great street artists! http://www.dsphotoblog.com/?p=1945 ‪
  6. For the last weeks i have been shooting a lot with the new Sigma MC11 Adapter. Here are my latest results using the Sigma 24mm 1.4 ART + Sony A7II! http://www.dsphotoblog.com/?p=1925
  7. I am currently struggling if I should replace/ sell my loxia 35mm. This is a really good lens that I have enjoyed so much to use, especially when I am alone and that I could dig into enjoying the pure joy of photography. I have no complaints to the quality. The only problem here being, I purchased a 35mm lens mainly for walk-around and travel light, alongside with my 55mm. I currently also own a 16-35 F4. So I was thinking, if I should get the sigma lens + adapter cheap, should I replace it, with autofocus? Anyone has used it on 1st gen a7 and what was it like? e.g. focus speed, weight. I like doing videos with my friend when I am travelling, and I found that a MF lens is actually not as convenient during a journey. So I have 3 potential options: 1) Replace Loxia with Sigma 2) Keep Loxia and travel with 16-35 F4 + 55mm 3) Sell Loxia (you dont need a 35mm prime!) If I sell the loxia I would probably use the money for a batis 85mm or 70-200 F4. But indeed I am not much into portraits but instead I intend to use it for landscape when a telephoto lens is needed. (or sometimes sports) Any inputs would be appreciated!

  14. I was looking into the Sigma Prime 35/1.4 but passed because of low light focus issues. Can anyone recommend a sharp 35/1.4 in or around the 1K to 1.2K price point? I know it is kind of like finding sasquatch for that price but I thought I would give it a shot! Eric

  16. Could anybody please tell me if this lens Sigma 73A205 150-500 F/5-6.3 APO HSM DG Telephoto Zoom lens will fit the Sony A6000 camera? I would like to get a long telephoto lens for birding. Any recommendations on other lenses with maximum reach of at least 400mm that fit my a6000 camera? Cheers Roman
  17. Hello everyone, in January I bought the sony a99II, shortly after I paired you with the SIGMA 24-70mm F2.8 IF EX DG, since it does not focus very well I brought to show it and they told me that it must be done calibration ... BUT, since the dealer (online, shop with headquarters roma) I sold it as a European guaranteed after this thing is It turns out it's actually import. so no guarantees. given the error you should compensate me, but now he just told me that this goal is perhaps not compatible with this machine ...... please someone help me, some have combined without any problems? I have the distinct feeling that is looking for a pretext for not shelling out money
  18. So I've just got the A6500 from Sony for making video. The 18-105 f4 has been perfect for all my filming so far but with winter coming I need to get some faster glass to get some more light in on these dark nights. Have some questions... If you put the Sony 35mm 1.8 with stabilisation on the A6500 with stabilisation do both stabilisers work or does one switch off the other? Is the f1.4 from sigma in real-world terms going to let much extra light in compared to the Sony f1.8? Does AF on the sigma work as good as on the Sony? Is the A6500 stabilsation enough if I went with the Sigma? Many thanks everyone, G

  20. I'm thinking to upgrade my kit lens to Sigma 17-70 but I read some articles that Sigma 17-70 HSM is not compatible with Sony A57. I don't want to purchase USB dock and I'll buy from Amazon as used. Does anyone have information about this? If it is like that. What do you recommend for zoom lens?
  21. Hello All! I've been reading here for a while and am having trouble deciding on my next lens.. hopefully someone can help with the decision! As the title says really, I'm torn between the Sony e mount 35mm 1.8 and the Sigma 30mm 1.4... I'm getting the lens almost entirely for video, and low light at that. it will also be a walk around photo lens from time time.. I have tried the sony in-store and was pleased with it: light weight, bokeh looked nice and it has OSS which is kind of a big deal as I will be shooting video handheld.. I know the a6500 has IBIS but I don't know if ill miss the OSS on the Sigma.. As for the sigma, I've never used a non native lens and am concerned about AF performance and as i said above, it's stability... however it is considerably cheaper than the sony and seems to be very highly rated.. Anyone have any thoughts? Anyone tried the sigma? Other lens choices? Thanks for reading!

  23. Hello friends! Shot on Sony A6300 + Sigma 24-105 f4 Art + Sony 30mm f2.8 Color grading in Premiere Pro 2018 + Lumetri Color Thank you for watching!
  24. This is a Sony A6300 with Sigma AF 24-105mm f/4 DG HSM Art Minolta A with Sony LA-EA3 A-Mount Adapter. As well as Blackmagic Production Camera 4K EF with Sigma AF 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art Canon EF-S and Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM. The result is 10 minutes of peace and clouds. Except for the opening plan in the timelapse, everything else was in real time. After the post-production, it was accelerated.
