    Cheers man,

    When I do work for the school it's different again, I'm not putting my own spin on those - just trying to keep them truer to life with a bit more contrast and punch and without over-saturating the colours.

    thanks - yea, it started off I quite like them - then when I've done a bunch of photos I start to change my mind, particularly when you place them next to each other in a thread :D I'll get it right when i deliver in July!

    I don't tlike the new BMW interiors. The screen/sat nav looks like a bolt on after thought. My sis in law has a 2 series coupe and it just looks odd on the dash!

    Well I only paid £1700 and they took the money immediately without any issues on further follow ups, so I'll expect it to be the case when I (hopefully) receive this week.

    Another thumbs up for Wilkinson's from me :plus1:

    Brilliant service on the printer I got from them. Very patient and helpful as I was experiencing some issues.

    Loving the 35 f1.4 I honestly don't seen any difference between this and a Sigma Art, AF seems great. Would be tempted by the f2.8 for travel potentially.

    The only problem I've had with the Sony 35mm f2.8 is throwing the background more out of the DoF at f2.8 in one or two shots and that's it, one or two out of thousands. I've not had any low light limitations as the higher ISO performance of modern cameras is enough for me.

    For me the advantages of compactness and quality outweigh the disadvantages of f2.8 for DoF and low light.

    You should take a look at one :D Either the Sony or Samyang :D If you think a compact quality lens will be useful :D

    Im a bit stuck, I know the Zeiss is better in every way and I was lucky to get a nice copy, but theres money to be saved by keeping the Samyang instead.... but its my most used FL so I really should keep the better lens... or should I.... AAARRRGGGHHHHH! Choice can be a real PITA.

    The Sigma art is soooo much cheaper and for those willing to use it with an adapter it must be very tempting. Is the Sony/Zeiss that much better?

    Its not, used Sigma and adapter is approaching 700 quid, the Zeiss is around 900 quid used. The Samyang I got for £500, tbh as much as I like the ART I think the Samyang being native is a better choice. The ART is sharper than the Samyang but sharpness isn't everything. The Zeiss is better than all of them not just in terms of IQ but also AF but more expensive.

    ... the "native" Sigma will come in at £700 but its still a DSLR design with DSLR motors.

    35mm is your focal length. Keep the zeiss.

    The lens itself is about the same size as my OM/M42 adaptors on their own and weighs about the same.

    35 1.4, with regards the 85 1.4s, I wouldn't touch the Sigma 85 ART, its just to big and way to heavy.

    There have been a couple of instances now on the Sony A73 facebook group where members have said that the camera has overheated just by using the menu for setting up etc... albeit over a long period...

    Richard Scrope shared his first post.

    Is my A7iii a dud? Yesterday I sat down with my a9 and a7iii to get them setup the same. After about 1 hour the A7iii overheated and shut down. No lens on it just the body. The A9 was completely cool but the A7iii was hot to touch. Should I return it.

    The way I see it is if you sell your Zeiss you'll get back what you paid for it or near enough. If you sell your samyang you'd probably get less even though you paid £100 less than other places I imagine others will drop down in price soon enough.

    This is also true, more of an investment, Samyang hasn't been out in the wild very long either, no teardown, Sony uprated their linear motors, who knows what Samyang is using on their first attempt.

    The cost difference isn't huge between what I paid for the as new Zeiss and Samyang.... had they both been new UK stock prices I would've certainly gone for the Samyang, it is excellent VFM.

    Noooooo, 35 is my no.1 FL.

    I don't think Id go to the 85GM tbh, the FE 1.8 is superb, also faster to AF and lighter. I see the value in going for 1.4 at 35/50, not so much at 85 as it already provides shallow enough DOF due to longer FL.
