  • I took some great (for me, anyway ;) ) portraits with 50 in a room illuminated by nothing else but a TV screen. I think both the f1.8 aperture and OSS were instrumental. Having used both the ...
  • No offense, but it's pointless to compare two portrait primes shooting buildings. How does the bokeh compare ?
  • At f2.8, they are same in the center and through most of the frame, with Sony getting very very slightly softer in extreme corners and Sigma sharp all across the frame. In my opinion, corners at ...
  • I bought 30 and 19 when they were a 1:2 deal. Sold 19 eventually as I didn't use it much, kept the 30. While I really like the 30, I have two problems with it (which both 19 and 60 share). First, ...
  • Yes, the hood alone is a big part of the size of that lens. I keep toying with idea of buying a decent protective filter and leaving the hood at home.
  • This is absolutely correct, every word of it. Except "poor" is perhaps too strong of a word. In 7 years of shooting Canon, I used some sharp zooms - Tamron 17-50/2.8, Sigma 17-50/2.8 (corners were ...
  • Oh, you're in Austrailia... 18-105 is $598 in the US, or $515 for a "grey market" (no US warranty) version. http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Dgift-cards&field-keywords=18- ...
  • And I think most people who sing high praise to it are trying to justify their purchase. It's a very good lens. It's not an excellent lens. Sony has no excellent zooms in E mount (FE is another ...
  • You must've got a special market powerzoom only edition. Mine has a zoom ring. Just like, say, 18-55. And a zoom rocker. Just like, say, 16-50. It's zoom by wire whether you use a ring or a rocker. ...
  • FE is much moe expensive, and, even more importantly, huge. Might as well go back to DSLR, or switch brands.
  • We're looking at "crap" Sony lens and comparing it to a "gold" EF-M lens. You said Sony system was complete crap. Remember ? So a "gold" Canon lens is not as good at a certain aperture as a "crap" ...
  • If you compare the whole of Canon to the whole of Sony, sure. If I wanted to use DSLR lenses as my primary set of tools, I'd stick with Canon. Overall, if you don't want / need the benefits of a ...
  • These are wonderful photos, but the 22mm is still trickier to use for H&S portraits than a 50 / 60/ 90mm lens. I have some good portraits taken with 16mm, I would not call it a portrait lens. I ...
  • Some comparisons. We all agree that 22/2 is one great lens, don't we ? The best IQ that EF-M system has. I already posted sharpness comparisons to Sigma 30/2.8 on Sony, where they are dead even. No ...
  • 12/2, 14/2, 19/2.8, 24/1.8, 30/2.8, 35 /1.8 OSS, 50/1.8 OSS and 60/2.8 are great lenses with excellent IQ. Look at your own level of comprehension first. I will shut up when I see fit. I ...
  • Unfortunately, a lot of executives see internal competition to their product as much more dangerous than external competition. If Sony beats Rebels in camera sales (a far shot, I know) then Canon ...
  • Yet my Nex 6, while not as fast focusing as my T3i was, is fast enough - slower than A6000 but faster than EOS M. I still think it's the Holy Rebel holding M down. Not the tech.
  • What are you, 15 ? Your logic is way off. You are saying that Sony mirrorless is worse than Canon mirrorless because it doesn't have some lenses that Canon doesn't have either ? We are comparing M ...
  • I wouldn't call 50/1.8 OSS an overpriced crap lens. It's a very good portrait prime, and rather moderately priced. And being an E mount lens, does not require an adapter. 35/1.8 OSS could indeed ...
  • I agree 100%. For the original EOS M to be released with an glaring lack of features and with practically no lenses at a very high price point when Sony and Fuji already had superior bodies on the ...
