I have sony a6400, and i want absolutely steller quality from my prime lense ( will use for portrait , street portrait category ) the options i can see is
1. Sigma 56mm f1.4 for apsc
2. Sigma art 50mm f1.4 for FE
I might upgrade to full frame may be in next 4-5 years, not immediately, will sigma art 50mm f.14 will provide better image on a apsc body than 56mm ? In both photo and video ?
As the 50 art costs 2X than the 56mm, i am a bit confused.. but it that will provide that better image / video quality i am ok to pay the difference.
If anyone has used sigma 50mm art on APsc for photo and video please let me know.
I'm new here and new to thew world of photography.
I'm a game developer by trade and love to modify things.
I'll be posting a few of my modifications I did to my A6000 (mostly aesthetic ones) and how I went about doing them.
Since the a6000 series all look alike I wanted to hopefully inspire some people to make theirs stand out in the crowd like mine does.
I'll post the link to my new thread once I make it and figure out the crazy file size restrictions with the pictures I wanted to include.
I'm curious to know if these two lenses can be effectively used in FF bodies without invoking crop mode. For instance, in my Pentax APS-C setup, I can use my 35mm and 50mm lenses in compatible FF bodies (film and DSLR). There is very slight vignetting, but I can get a full frame view out of them.
Has anyone else tried these two lenses in FF mode?
Maybe I have something set wrong but when recording video on my a6000 I don't see them in playback mode. I see all of the photos I have taken but no video. I'm sure they're there because when using playmemories they show up (although they won't wirelessly transfer). Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

so, after much searching for an answer I guess I need to show (to someone who understands what I’m talking about) examples of my problem.
the first images were shot with the kit lens (16-50) or the 18-200 OSS SONY lens (great lens!) a few years ago and had no editing.
they were amazing! I could see them razor sharp in the PC and I’ve printed quite a lot of them (biz sizes as well).
but lately (end of last year, and 2020) I’ve been seeing that the camera has much more difficulty to focus (it takes wayyy more time to focus) and most of the times doesn’t even focus at all.
I used mainly P or SCN modes but now that I got a bit more to learn about photography I’ve been trying to get into M mode. And also bought a prime lens (Sigma 30mm f1.4). and the problem persists! Even with the sigma lens (which has the reputation of being perfect sharp) I see lots of noise and just not a good sharp image, not in the viewfinder and even less in my new Mac...
I don’t know what to do. Wanted to buy a new one but I really loved my a6000 and don’t want to just dismiss it because it’s “outdated”.
ah! I’ve upgraded the firmware and have initialised it many times... still, some photos are ok but not great and most of them do not focus at all!
Suggestions? How can I be sure it’s defective?
