These are great shots, thanks for sharing them. How do these lenses feel on your a6500? Do they make it particularly front-heavy or uncomfortable to hold?

Both the Sigma 35/1.4 ART and the Batis 85/1.8 lenses feel front heavy but not uncomfortable with the A6500. Having said this, since I got these lenses for portrait shoots I bought a third party vertical grip for my A6500. It definitely improved the ergonomics when shooting portraits and or sports (with the Batis).

I travel light with my APS-C lenses (touit 12/2.8, 16-70/4/OSS and the Zeiss 24/1.8) thus I leave the heavier lenses at home. BTW, the Sonnar 55/1.8 is a full-frame lens but it is pretty light.

Cheers,

José
