That's really weird, sounds like just the lens was out.
You not missed anything relating to camera, just the ongoing drama
I wonder how long before mods weigh in.
They don't usually come in here, gets rowdy and resolves itself fairly quickly.
35 ART AFS tested, nothing wrong with it, shot after shot, in focus. Near, far, near, far etc etc.
Not sure what the other tester did wrong or if it was his lens. No problems here.
Zeiss 35mm is waiting for me at home. I need to test it yet again, what a chore
Probably because we use “toy” cameras and not proper ones like they do
Anyone want a 55/1.8? It’ll be up in the classifieds shortly. About to pull the trigger in the 85 - just need to decide whether I wanna is e-infinity or not.
Got my Zeiss 35mm/1.4
It seems slightly better optically than my previous copy but slightly worst cosmetically.
Go for it. That's the trade I made and haven't looked back.
Managed to finally get around to blogging my first Sony-shot wedding from a few weeks ago if anyone is interested: https://goo.gl/HW7nMR
Awesome all of it
Lovely work Deci.
Can I ask, what lenses do you use?
I'm yet to settle on how much bulk I keep on me at weddings, and almost hope you say two primes and nothing else.. perhaps 35/85 ?
Sometimes I'm leaning towards 16-35mm + 50mm - but I miss the 35mm 1.4 rendering,
Mostly 35Art and 85FE/Batis, but during groom prep I was on the 25 Batis and 55FE and some of the portraits/candids are on Nikon 45mm Tilt/shift with an adapter. Didn't use a flash at all.
All I need for a wedding is a 35 and 85 and a cheap-as-pish flash.
I haven't owned a zoom lens in years.
None FF stuff...
There's a review of the Sony RX100 VI at DPR...
I bought the Pany TZ100 some time ago for when I think my other cameras are too much and for longer and wider stuff when I have a CSC + a prime with me and whilst it gives pretty soft pictures it is IMO fine for whole pictures viewed normally. If this Sony is better it's going to be a pretty attractive thing but at a higher cost. 1" sensors may not be for everyone but they are maybe worth looking at for holidays and days out when you don't want a larger camera.
thanks, I might consider that 25 batis - i have the 50mm 1.4 i could pair with it instead.
Wow, awesome and inspirational, what where you using before the sony, and how have you found the switch?
Thank you. Been Nikon since I started and up until a few weeks back was using D750 bodies with a similar lens setup. Getting muscle memory used to the Sony was the only issue I had, otherwise it's been pretty straightforward.
Decided to go Sony because I wanted mirrorless and reckon that Nikon's first proper effort will be A) more expensive than the a7 and B) have a more limited range of lenses to begin with. Recent rumours appear to be vindicating that stance.
Some screen grabs from yesterdays wedding. Potatoe vision as you cant upload decent sized files
Nice work @F/1.4
35/50/85, Sony Zeiss & GM or Sigma Art?
This is still king
Weird that I just never liked that lens despite everyone I know raving about it.
I am still looking for the best in terms of focus, bokeh, size and aperture.
The Sigma 85 Art just seems TOO big, especially on a Sony body.
Eagerly awaiting the brick wall shots
Soft on the right
Took it out for a shoot today. Really impressed with the AF performance with A7RIII. Think this is as good as it gets for eye-AF. Sony have really nailed it.
You never know could be the left side this time
This lens was the final nail in the coffin for me on dslr. Its rubbish for anything that moves at all. Wide open the performance was atrocious even when it did hit that magical 1 in 10 sharp images lol
I despised it Deci.
What's wrong with Sony ones?
Have you tried it on a Sony body? It's actually slightly faster lol
If its only slightly better then its still an absolute POS lol
I quite like its rendering personally. But its too much hassle to get good amount of keepers sometimes with that lens.
Ye have no faith
I had the Canon 85/1.8 and the 1.2 together for about 4 years and I didn't use the 1.8 at all. At that time the Sigma 85/1.4 Art hasn't come out and there really was no competition.
It's NOTHING compare to what the A73 with its 85/1.8 can do, that's not a question but it got the job done when I needed it to so I will always have a soft spot for it.
(she was walking)
I’ll post on here when I put it up!
