I’ve looked at many lens recently and waited for some others. I have a a9 and do general photography (more portraits than other things). I have the sigma 24-70 dg dn, the sigma 100-400 on adapter and zeiss 35 and 55. I like pseudo macro with the 100-400. I also often think that 70 is not long enough. So I’ve looked at the possibilities. I’m hesitating between the sony 90mm which seems pretty much a cross of my need without going in focal I already own. I’m also very tempted by the upcoming...

So I’ve been messing about with the lens and looking for clarification on the below... it seems there is a minimum distance that the lens can AF.. BUT it seems you can MF a lot closer... Is this correct or am I doing something wrong with the AF... basically the difference between a macro and a super macro I guess ?

Hey guys, I have a 90mm G OSS lens from Sony. I'm using a Sony A6000 body with the lens and haven't ever had issues with the setup. About a week ago I picked up the camera after about a month or so sitting in a pelican case and come to find out the lens wont autofocus. Sliding the manual/auto focus ring into auto and attempting to focus seems to cause a "white" flicker on the screen but the focus wont actually work. Does anyone have any ideas on whats going on? Manual focus works just fine,...

Hello guys, I would like to try macro photography but I completely newbie in this field. I would like to know about your personal experience and thoughts. First I am looking for a lens for Sony a7III. I'm considering: Sony 90 2.8 Macro all looks cool but I worrying about not circular bokeh that someone reported and something that bothers me :) Sigma 70 Art looks cool too but focus distance is significantly smaller, and noisy AF that may spook wild insects. Canon 100 2.8L I already have an...

Hi everyone, First I'd like to specify that I'm just an amateur, I'm not really specialized in anything, I liked just about everything new I tried in photography so far so am a bit all over the place.I currently own a Sony 85 f1.8 which I got... because I was waiting on availibility on other lenses and I love it but I found out that even for portrait I rarely use it full open.I'm shopping for a macro lens but don't want to spend 1200€ on the Sony FE 90 so I read quite a few articles on the...

I have a Sony A7II with the FE 90mm F2.8 lens. Recently the lens has started zooming whenever I manual focus, if that makes any sense(see pictures). I can't seem to figure out why exactly this is happening, and the camera shop I visited was no help. The pictures I've uploaded where all taken on a tri-pod, the only difference between the three is the focus at which they were taken. In both of the out of focus pictures the knob takes up a fair bit more/less of the frame. Any help or advice...

Just got my Sony 90mm today to use with my a6500. The AF is incredibly slow..like super slow. The AF motor is also very loud. Am I missing something here or this copy a dud? Its slow to focus on both macro shots and other portrait type shots. Thanks in advance.

I tend to see comparisons of these cameras focusing on portrait and landscape photography, but ignoring other genres entirely, like still life and macro work. Soon I'll be starting a project where I foresee myself shooting lots of macro, still life, and food photography. I'm not very experienced in this arena, so I don't know the full extent that either camera's unique features would help in this regard. I do see the A7riii's improved EVF, better cropping ability, and especially pixel shift...

Hi, Has anyone else noticed this issue with the SEL90 on video mode? If yes, what body are you using? I'm debating whether it's worth following up with Sony for a fix. I don't see too many videos on youtube discussing it, but this video illustrates the sound I'm hearing. Thanks! --Sharon
