On article Sony announces new ultra-fast FE 50mm F1.2 GM lens (548 comments in total)
In reply to:

NexUser: What is the button on the top? Is it a function button? The one on the left is easy to press but the one on the top looks weird.
Great lens from Sony. I think except from video it is an excellent choice. Heavy focus breathing makes it not-so-suitable for video.
I heard the Nikon S 50mm f1.2 is much longer so that engineers can design a lens without focus breathing. As a photo-heavy user I'd go with Sony's lens but then it is st.pid to compare brands because I don't have any Nikon Z camera 😀

top button-= portrait orientation

MikeRan: If they made a DG DN version of the 120-300/2.8 or something similar this lens would be on my list for sure..

I guess a 70-200/2.8 is more likely but we can still dream.

Yeah, likely 70-200 f2.8 to complete the trinity.

Remember the days (cries) "Where are the 35mm's?!"
Great release Sony! Still keeping my FE35 but hopefully upgrade to GM someday.
Future is bright!

gphome: I really hope the 1st gen stacked sensor technology from the A9 mark 1 finds its way into the A7M4, it really would be liberating to have the ability to shoot silent shutter ALL the time in family settings, and school plays etc.

Hopefully all the journalist use this tech soon too, would make it much easier to listen at news conferences!

I echo this, anticipating the release of the a7iii, I hoped for AF like of a9. They delivered.

Now blackout free & silent shutter hopefully trickles down to next a7X.. I can wait even on a7v or vi

There's Sony a1 camera and TV now :p

Such a beast of a gear, well done Sony!
This what competition does.

JpGomez: Well done Canon for a very capable photographic tool from just 2nd iteration! This is very good for the competition and consumers. I'm looking forward what Nikon Z6s will bring. Maybe very good releases from this point on.

FF I meant

On article Hands-on with the Sigma 85mm F1.4 DG DN Art (333 comments in total)

Curious with the different looking aperture blades.
OTOH another gem from Sigma! The fact that they reduced the weight and size hopefully a sign of new approach with their lens design going forward.

Well done Sigma! I like their approach of competing directly with GM lineup. And Tamron/Samyang more on the size and portability. Lots of option for all types of shooters!
Kudos to 3rd party support.

io rep: MeFoto BackPacker S

all day. took it to asia. did its job like a champ. I cant see myself paying more for a travel tripod. I have my heavy manfrotto at home, though it just collects dust.

@PLShutterbug, nice find! thanks

Have the Mefoto Roadtrip for years.. Excellent travel tripod I've brought it to anywhere beach, sand, mud etc. Bought it here in Canada and it came with a nice padded case. Only complaint is it can't get low to the ground. Been looking at PD but can' t justify the cost, I'd put that $ into lens instead.

In reply to:

Kharan: A lot of things can be said about Sony lenses, but their dedicated UWAs are unquestionably among the best ever made - not a single one of them disappoints (I'm leaving the converters out here). I'm sure that this one will continue that tradition, and probably reach new performance heights.

That aspherical front element is something else again, too. It might be the largest one ever made for a mass-market photographic lens.

@Barbu, there's also Laowa 10-18mm that doesn't cost more than $1K.
Lots of UWA options now in FE world from different price & FL range.

@BrentSchumer there's also Samyang 18mm 2.8, can be had for good price. Good alternative for non-UWA shooters just to have one in their bag in case.

In reply to:

UllerellU: Interesting little lens, but in my opinion it should be quite far in price compared to the 85 f1.4, which is now quite cheap (around 500 ...) the Sony 85mm f1.8 is also around 500 or less, this would be a Super lens between 300-400, plus the size and weight makes it useful for APSC.

Agree, price shouldn't be far off with their other "Tiny" series at $399. Then followed by rebates after few weeks/months.

Lowest B&H price I've seen for 18mm is $299 and 45mm at $329.

WYSIWYG and also Eye-AF of any kind.
Glad this has become mainstream now with most brands.
