Hey guys! Long story short: do I need a new body or would the Sigma 35mm 1.4 work well with the Sony A58 and improve the quality of my images? Here's more info: So I own a Sony A58 that I bought back in 2013 when I was quite a noob and not that interested in photography. I simply used it for my fashion blog. However, this year I started taking photography seriously and I'm enjoying it a lot. I am just struggling with low light photography. I don't know if it's the lens or the body, but I do...
I've always done on-location, outdoor photography. I had a client call me wanting to do a mini Easter shoot at her house with her 6 month old. The chilly outdoor temps are not going to work well for outdoors. What would I need to set up a little set inside of her home? I'm tempted to buy some kind of portable floor or backdrop with props of course, but what lighting would I need? I am open to any suggestions! I have a Canon Rebel t5i with a 35mm f/1.4 sigma art lens that I like using for...

HI I have Canon 80D. Crop sensor. I want prime lenses! I just bought my first prime lens canon 50mm 1.4 USM. Now this gives me 80mm equivalent so im not actually getting 50mm from the camera with this lens. I'm going to go for a 30-35mm lens in order to meet the equivalent of 56mm on my camera. Now here's my dilema... The bottom line is that I want the best images possible from my equipment. sharpness and image quality, the bokeh is a bonus to me but first must be definition in the image. Now...

Hi, I noticed the following with my Sigma 35mm F1.4 A on a Canon 550D. 1. The AF image quality is identical to that MF if the subject is focused through screen. 2. The AF image quality is obviously inferior through the viewfinder. 3. The same metering mode was used and the subject was placed at the centre of the frame, the shutter speed of #2 was slower than that of #1. The two cropped images are: Screen AF Viewfinder AF The subject is about 15cm high and the lens was 550cm (5.5 meter)...

Dear All, I am totally new to the forums and I'd really love to get your kind opinions about a question that I'm really finding hard to unravel. I am professional photographer and use sony gear since the beginning. I currently own two A99 and an A7RII. I love the quality of the latter, I also had the opportunity to try the newest 35mm 50mm and 85mm 1.4 e mount lenses and I feel they're quite superior even than my a mount zeiss 85mm 1.4. But, I also fee that the A7RII isn't quite ready for...
The one thing I miss most from my A6000/A6300 is the Sony Zeiss 24mm f1.8. It was an almost perfect combo of FL, speed, sharpness, rendering, color, contrast, bokeh, close MFD, etc. What it lacked was a body that could take further advantage of its quality at full resolution (as opposed to APS-C mode). I moved to FF (A7II) for many reasons, some of which included IBIS, low light performance, better resolving power, etc. Moving to full frame, I am currently using an adapted Canon 40mm f2.8,...

I currently shoot with a 5D (the first one). All I have right now is a 50/1.8 II that came with it when I bought it. It's fine, but I'm more comfortable with the 35mm focal length. I'm wondering, given that I don't readily have much cash to drop often, should I hold out and get the Sigma 35mm ART or settle for the 35mm F2 IS?I know eventually I'll get the Sigma anyway, but I'll be needing a 35mm soon and I can't make up my mind. Anyone have any common sense or just ideas to throw my way?

I recently bought a Nikon D750 with the 24-120 f/4 lens. I haven't used them enough yet to become very familiar with them, but I have read reviews on this lens and it seems most think it has some significant flaws. I would now like to get a very good prime lens that would compliment the 24-120. The lenses that I'm most interested in are the Sigma 35 1.4 Art lens, and the Sigma 50 1.4 Art lens. And to a lesser degree the Nikon 1.8, and Nikon 85 1.8. I can only afford to buy one now, and maybe...

Hi so i plan on getting a sigma art lens for wedding photography but im on a budget, caught between the 35mm sigma f1.4 and the 85mm f1.4. Both focal points are important to me. i was thinking of getting extension tubes with electronic contacts for the 35mm to make it an 85mm when i need it to. A cheaper alternative as im on a budget , i want to know if this is possible and the essentials i forego by doing this. do i get similar bokeh i would rather get on an 85mm sigma? does anyone have any...
