A65 Full Body Portrait / Action Indoors Use Only Lens Under $500 Suggestions Please?
5 months ago

Only from the Mind of Minolta

So far, my A65 w/ the $150. DT 50mm F1.8 SAM... a $50 tilt & swivel Bower flash... a few cheap, portable flash reflectors... DxO Optics Pro Stan. Ed... and my “clients” (still doing TFPs) like my shots better than most other photogs.

The thing about the A65/A77 units, is that they really need a great lens, even more than most other SLRs (SLTs for us). The only thing holding me back from getting the full frame 85mm f/2.8 (SAL85F28) is I’m seriously pondering one of these instead:

(I never use my A65 outdoors, it’s strictly studio/indoors only)

Mainly, I work with all kinds of performing artists, including very fast moving professional dancers.

I’m very interested in all your thoughts on this...
