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.
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
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!
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.
I bought a A7RIV a few months ago and I've gone out several times to go shoot. The first photo shoot (portraits) I had with it, the focus looked spot on in camera but wasn't in focus once I got it on the computer. I thought it might have been the lens I was renting so went out to shoot some landscape shots with one of my trusted lenses. The focus looked great in camera but off when I put it on the computer. I immediately took it back and exchanged the camera. I shot again with the newly exchange
Hi Gang, is there a guide somewhere to which of the older minolta lenses and sgma/tamron
lenses as well, i need a long lens for birds mainly around 400mm or more and have seen loads
of cheap long lenses on ebay, some are minolta some sigma etc, question is which will work ok with my A7ii dslr
I have never done any astrophotography. It is my understanding that with the a7Riiiii raw uncompressed, the only change that happens by selecting a picture profile are the gamma settings.
Therefore, which picture profile, if any, is best for astrophotography? Thanks very much for your help.
Think it's quite up to me when to decide to move along.
In my very first post I indirectly answered your question: the A6xxx line will only get a MP boost when market demand is big enough. As of yet, it is not.
Your reluctance to respond to my statement about the improvement of technology between the A7R2 and A7R4 is quite the satisfaction I needed from this discussion. Thanks!
