Thoughts on DxO PhotoLab vs. Lightroom. I currently have LR6 and don’t want the monthly cost to upgrade my LR, can anyone tell me their thoughts or opinions on DxO PhotoLab? Current users that have switched from LR-is it basically the same/different? What do you like/dislike?
I recently received a Sony 24-104 f4 lens and I love it. This lens is so versatile. I can see this as my main travel lens. On most trips I will still take the Sony 16-35 f2.8 GM for landscapes. Smaller international airlines have a 8KG carry on luggage limit. That means a maximum of three lenses so selection is very important.
Don't just take my word for it. The reviews for this lens are really outstanding. Some are even saying go with this lens over the 24-70 f2.8 GM. Much cheaper and lighter.
A question haunting me: The Sony A7 Mk II offers 24mb resolution. I shoots birds and butterflies; even with a 400mm lens, very often I end up cropping the FF image to APS-C size or smaller; often I shoot in APS-C mode for 'perceived reach' that gets me a 10mb image file. How would that compare with using say the APS-C size Canon 80D (also 24mb)? Here I would have a non cropped 24mb file as compared with a similar Sony A7 cropped image which would be a 10mb file. Which would offer better image quality for making prints of size 20x30 inches?
I don’t think the C1EM is compatible with the a7RM2
the C2EM is the Sony model that work, see this link https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1159878-REG/sony_a7r_mark_ii_digital.html/accessories
The Meike looks like a great deal, though I wonder about the build quality... did you try searching for some video reviews?
ok so i just got a nice new Sony alpha a7ii dslr and thought i would get a battery grip but there seems to be
loads of different ones? so which one do i go for ? VG-C3EM , Meike MK-A7II Pro Vertical Battery Grip, Sony VG-C2EM Battery Grip, Sony VG-C1EM Battery Grip, Sony ILCE-7RM2
Neewer Vertical Battery Grip Replacement, Compatible with Sony VG-C2EM and Sony VG-C4EM Vertical Battery Grip
