Hey Guys, i have Some questions.
So im not a expert and need Some advice, i have the Sony A7 camera and want a 35mm 1.8 lens, but there are so Many options and i dont know what to pick. I want a budget model if possible, ive seen this one but Some say it wont work well on the a7, why is this?
That's because the Sony A7 cameras have an E-Mount, whereas the linked lens is for an A-Mount. For your proposed lens, you would need an adapter, which may degrade performance, image quality, compatibility or all of those. Besides, having to buy an additional adapter would somehow defeat the desired budget solution.
For a start, you may want to checkout the following lens database. It has both rankings based on uniform tests performed, as well as prices at launch time of each lens.
Be sure to choose "FE-Mount" (full frame E-Mount) as the mount type.
