  • These are three very different lenses. They dont overlap in terms of use. I would turn around the 18-55mm kit lens (buy a reverse macro ring for $10), and use it for macro shots at F8. Its very ...
  • Here is a rather good review of A7sii vs a7Rii. They key thing to note is that the A7sII in video mode has only 8-bit colour depth, and banding issues. It seems that the A7Rii in crop mode is ...
  • Saw a 2010 clip by Philip Bloom where he stated that shooting flat gets you two stops of DR on a 5DmkII. Too often folks keep using standard or neutral pic style not flat and state the obvious ...
  • It comes down to what you want to do in post. With a 4K Sony A7RII camera, too often folks shoot wide and say they will fix/crop/pan/zoom to correct framing in post. So even though they are not ...
  • I am not a nature shooter, so I have not used longer lens.  However Ive seen really good sports shots by others using a 400m prime.   I suspect since you have the 55-250mm, that even if you got a ...
  • I like the 18-135mm stm for zooming, and learning photography. Buy a flash diffuser to help with low light still shots. However the first three primes, would be the canon 28mm f1.8, 85 f1.8, and 50 ...
  • Right you are. I was confusing it with an alpha mount lens.  I really wish they only made FF primes, as that should mean sharper corner to corner on aps-c so its good for both. Sony 85mm f/1.4 Carl ...
  • You could use the Sigma 19mm f2.8 then. All the Canon UWA lens are tanks, so I appreciate a light one as I cycle & shoot. As for A7RII focus with Sony 1.8 glass, well it may not be the speediest ...
  • I did post previously, on my pick of A7rII, I suggest primes for any FF.  The 16mm f2.8 pancake is incredibly light, and its only e-mount.  They also have affordable and light 35 f1.8, and 50 ...
  • And oh yes, since you have some time I would download Magic Lantern for your 60D and play with its features.  Magic zoom and manual focusing for low light.  Time-lapse, trap focus/motion detect, ...
  • These are questions most folks grapple with, to quote the Clash "Should I stay or should I go". If I were to buy a FF, I like the Sony A7RII right now but I also like primes on a FF, so I would ...
  • for video you need a tripod/sholder rig/glider/ etc.. IS is really for handheld shots.  The Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 is probably the single best and most praised aps-c lens for video.  It may be that ...
  • http://www.cnet.com/news/why-ultra-hd-4k-tvs-are-still-stupid/ Good article on why 4k TVs are not that big a deal. There's two big reasons: 1. most people want moderate screen sizes not TV walls. 2 ...
  • This 4K fear is being way over done.  The jump to QHD from FHD is not as optically big to the viewer as it was from HD to FHD.   For most viewing distances its not going to matter.  Are you plan ...
  • Actually the calculator in previous link, is only for DOF. Which is greater with a FF, as its not cropped but really best relates to background blur. Rather the light capture is more a function of ...
  • I am hardly one to talk 70D I use Tokina 11-16mm, Sigma 18-35mm, and 50-150mm, and for forest walks 55-250mm. These are all aps-c glass. I use them all. 5DMkII Canon 28mm 1.8, 35mm 2, 50mm 1.8 , ...
  • Sorry you dont need expensove glass to blow an aps-c out of the water for low light.  You might want to check out the following research article. There is a great calculator that explains for ...
  • and chance of theft is low with p&s they cant even give theses away sales are so bad. Good camera to leave somewhere.
  • Again they did not do a full test of low light performance. They tested in the range of DR where the apsc can compete. If you put f1.2 glass on any FF in very low light it will blow the apsc out ...
  • I dont disagree with recommending an 80D as a single camera for video, I mean I own a 70D.  My point was that a FF is a different tool and as such it does not replace a70D/ 80D or A6300.  Rather ...
