Apologies if theres already another thread out there about this or along similar lines.
I am wondering what lens may be best suited out the two.
I have a small business as a DJ but I am an amatuer photographer, and like to take pictures and small videos at weddings to give back to the client. These arent services I charge for but still want to give a great looking product back.
I am currently torn between the FE 24-105mm F4 G OSS & Vario-Tessar T* FE 24-70mm F4 ZA OSS. These are both within my budget...just.... but i dont want to limit myself. I already have a prime 50 lense but wanted something where i can use the same lense but zoom in and out depending where i am standing.
Hi. I’m trying to find an affordable lens for my A7III that I can attach and walk around the neighborhood with. I live in a semi-rural area so I want something that will be good for landscape shots too. Id prefer not to carry around a large lens on my walks. If anyone has any suggestions I’d be very appreciative.
I am about to get a Sony A7iii and a Panasonic GH5s.
I do wedding video and photography, and intend to go into studio setups as well.
I want to get three lenses for both cameras. What lenses mount (brand) shoud I get.
Sony E mount lenses
Canon EF mount lenses
Or the panasonic mount lenses
The lens focal length is not an issue just the brand/mount
No matter the set up Id probably get adapters for either or one of the lenses.
I included the canon because they retain resale value after a long time
Ok here goes,
My kit isn’t great although I’m not a professional either.
Camera - A7
Lens - 55mm prime and 24-105mm G also the paper weight 28-70mm that ships with A7 bundle.
The plan is to pick up a A7iii and a 100-400mm and add it to my pack. - I hate changing lens’s I’m a dust magnet.
Not interested in video overly. Drone is pretty good with that I guess.
Im heading away to the far reaches of North Western Australia and think that my current setup will be too short and not really keen on getting up close and personal.
Questions I have are.
1. What should I buy first A7iii or 100-400mm
2. Should I ditch the A7 or leave it as redundancy/spare with the 55mm mounted semi permanently as it gives a great pic.
3. Is my lens 24-105mm a waste on the older A7
4. Is the A7iii my answer?
5. What are the cons with what I have and will there be a noticeable difference with the A7iii?
Look forward to your help
Is there any ETA for shipments of the Sony FE 400 mm f/2.8 GM OSS (SEL400f28GM)? Sony's website indicates that online retailers B&H, Crutchfield, Bedford, & Focus have "Preorder "availability, while Adorama denotes, "Backorder". Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
Not a lot of difference between the R3 and R4 besides the added MP and the resulting detail. An ISO range of a camera doesn't show how noisy its sensor is. There is a big difference in the last 6 years from the R1 to the R4. Sony increased the resolution while simultaneously decreasing the noise at high ISO. This was once thought of as a trade off. I want that new tech in the APS-C sensor.
I always shoot in raw but looking at the a6000 menu there is an option when shooting JPEGs to do
Hope soon to move over to Sony from Canon at the moment I use CF cards along side SD cards in the 7D MK II but what would/do you use in your Sony A9? Obviously you need a big card to take what I assume would be a lot more images at 20 FPS RAW (if you hold the shutter down) I don't go over 64GB on a card as I would rather change that card for a new just in case anything larger has a problem and you loose everything (never had a card fail but you never no) I also take it that you would need the UH
ISO-range of A7Riii and A7Riv are the same (100 - 32000), as is the dynamic range:
Even though I like the absolute sharpness and detail when I pixel-peep my photo's, it hardly serves a practical purpose. It's like the whole 4k - 6k - 8k discussion in video-world. Yes you'll see the difference if you're sitting at half a meter from your 65" TV, but who does that except the guy who just bought a new TV?
