Re: A7c and shutter speed

How much do you want to blow out highlights?

I was getting overexposure at ISO 100 with the Rokinon 35mm F1.8 at 1/8,000 s yesterday under overcast sky shooting down on snow using highlight metering on my A7III. I had to drop down to f/3.2 to avoid overexposure. The Rokinon supposedly has fairly poor transmission too.

I also had a lot of trouble using a Maxxum 70 with 1/2,000 s shutter with any prime. It is too bad 1/12,000 mechanical shutters like the Alpha 9 and 9xi film bodies are not available.

You can use ND filters.
