July 22, 2019 Sony FE 85mm F1.4 GM Image Gallery

One of my main projects for 2019 was a plan to pit all the current autofocus 85mm options on the full frame Sony E-mount platform head to head.  I’ve done something similar for 50mm options (and, to a lesser extent, 35mm options) on Sony.  I’ve done a major 85mm shootout on the Canon platform and […] [Read more...]

July 10, 2019 Sony FE 85mm F1.8 Image Gallery

All year long I’ve had the goal of doing a major 85mm showdown on the Sony platform, as I’ve done something similar for 50mm options (and, to a lesser extent, 35mm options) on Sony.  I’ve done a major 85mm shootout on the Canon platform and found it personally helpful and enjoyable, and this will be [&hell [Read more...]

April 28, 2019 Viltrox 85mm F1.8 FE Image Gallery

The Viltrox 85mm F1.8 is a new manual focus lens designed for Sony FE.  There is an autofocus version that will come later (for an additional $80), but this lens may prove to be the better option for video due to having a gorgeous manual focus ring.  This is the second Viltrox lens that I’ve […] [Read more...]

April 26, 2019 Samyang AF 85mm F1.4 FE Review

The Samyang AF 85mm F1.4 for Sony FE has been one of the lenses I’ve been most excited about in 2019 since Samyang told me it was coming.  Why?  On a personal note, because I’ve been wanting a good portrait lens for Sony.  I’ve been adapting the Tamron SP 85mm F1.8 VC lens, which is a [&hell [Read more...]

April 19, 2019 Zeiss Loxia 25mm F2.4 Distagon Review

The original idea behind mirrorless cameras was they would be smaller, lighter alternatives to DSLRs due to the differences in technology while providing similar levels of optical performance.  As I’ve noted in many subsequent reviews this idea is often lost, as frequently lenses designed for mirrorless (like the Sony [Read more...]

April 9, 2019 Sigma 56mm F1.4 DC DN Review

Sigma has once again managed to do for mirrorless what they seemingly cannot do with DSLR lenses – make an optically excellent, COMPACT lens.   The Sigma DN 56mm F1.4 C is the 6th (by my count) of Sigma’s DN line for APS-C (and Micro 4/3rds) mirrorless cameras.  The first series were the ART primes (ti [Read more...]
