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.
Does anyone know why Sony (or 3rd parties) can't make a better adapter for their A-mount SSM and SAM lenses? For example, the relatively inexpensive Sony 28-75 f2.8 is a really good lens. I've tried several copies and they make sharp, contrasty images. However, the AF on my E-mount bodies (a9 & a6500) is hampered by the paucity of focus points. The limiting factor is obviously not the bodies, and I don't think it's the lenses. It seems to be the adapter!
Recently purchased this lens for my a6300 (KEH 130). It is an unusual A mount because it is a telephoto with optic stabilization--recent Sigma lenses for A mount don't have it. The lens is noisier than the HSM lenses but appears to focus quickly and accurately--probably not as fast as the Sony FE 70-300 which costs $1000 more.
Went down to our harbor (Bellingham) and took some BIF pictures) With a sky background the lens had no difficulty. Against a busier background it had some problems finding the bird.
Off to Alaska next week will test the lens further.
Hi! I have an A7 Mark 2 and the 28-70 kit lens. I am looking for a 2.8 zoom without having to drop $2200 for a G master 24-70. I see that with the LA-EA 3 adapter I can use Sony SAM and SSM lenses and it seems to AF pretty fast. My question is do after market lenses like Tamron 28-75 auto focus? I know lens have to have own motor that isn't screw drive and I think Tamron does? Has anyone had experience with 3rd party 28-70/75 2.8 lenses on a7MK 2 using the LA-EA3? Any help would be 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!
