I have the Sony FE 2.8 70-200 GM OSS. When I set the lens (physical setting on the actual lens) to MF Manual Focus, and use the focus ring, the camera zooms in rapidly. However, when I take the picture, the camera reverts back to when it was not zoomed. How do I get it to take the picture while it's zoomed in? I am using Sony A7III with the lens.
so i want to upgrade my 70-200 zoom lens with these three options: tamron 70-200 f2.8 sony e mount sigma 70-200 f2.8 sony e mount sony 70-200 f4 (f2.8 is out due to price) would be using it primarily for surfing photography & video, secondarily for landscapes etc. what would you guys recommend at this point, native lens & smaller aperture or offbrand & 2.8?
So I've been wondering about this for a while now, which 70-200 lens to get for my a6500. i would use it primarily for surfing photography & video, then secondarily for landscapes etc. sony 70-200 f2.8 is out of the question at this time, as it is too expensive. so my dilemma is, do i get a sigma/tamron 2.8 or go for the better AF option but smaller aperture in the sony 70-200 f4? all three models are similarly priced so it's only down to the aperture at this point. thoughts?
When I had my old Canon FD lens, my favorite for traveling and general walk-around was the 35-105 f/3.5, considered a very good lens at that time. Now I am going to purchase an a 7 II and am considering two zoom lens: 24-70 f/4 Z and an18-105 f/4 G. I am eliminating adapters, so just sticking to E mounts at this time. Yes, I know i may be comparing apples to oranges, but from what I have researched, either of these should come close to my old Canon. As best as I can determine, these are the comparisons I found: 24-70: much higher cost $1200 v. 600 (list); high distortion; good chromatic aberration; poor bokeh; 24mp using FF; weight about a pound 18-105:( 28-164 on FF); high distortion; poor chromatic aberration; good bokeh; 10mp lower resolution using FF; weight about a pound So, aside from the price, and just concentrating on the qualities mentioned (i will be using it for stills but sometimes may consider video, but rarely) please let me know what lens may be the better of these two and what characteristics have i missed in my research? At what point in enlargements/cropping will I notice any great difference in the resolution between 10 and 24mp or will it be generally minimal using the a7II which, if I chose the 18-105, would save money? Amy advice is greatly appreciated.
