Hi all,

Went to tokyo last week and did a shoot using the A99. Brought along 2 lens with me.just to share what the A99 is capable to do for real world shooting and not here for pixel / sharpness comparison.

1) SIGMA 50mm F1.4 - i simply love this lens

2) Carl Zeiss 24mm F2 for certain situation that is tight or when the needs call for it.

i notice not many people using the carl zeiss 24mm F2 on the A99. not sure why, i initially wanted the Sigma 35mm F1.4 but it keeps delaying for its launch.

Pictures have been post process in Lightroom 4. hope you enjoy the pics!



Nice pics, are they all processed using VSCO 3? And the same effect? I particularly liked the last one, it's not too hazy but can see the effect applied. What processing did you do?

Hi there,

Yes almost all of them are using VSCO 3 if I remember correctly. But I use diff presets on the pics.

Vsco setting comes with the original/-/--(LESS effect /+/++(more extreme) which I apply this time round for many of the pics.

With regards to the pic u were refering too the presets use polariod 669- with some changes to the tone n highlights!

Hope this helps! Do private msg me should you require any further clarifications.
