I really don't know where to start When I got the A7iii plus the kit lens and the Sony 50mm f1.8 these were my only lenses. Then I went shopping before COVID - man that looks like a memory from a different planet now - I was hoping to get 16-35 GM which I got later but then I saw this lens and asked for price match and as able to get this one So forward like 2 years and up until yesterday this was my portrait lens. Despite I had the 50mm f1.8 at the time but this lens... I really don't know ...

I just received this used lens which I found on Ebay for about $750.00 last Saturday and I am happy with it. This is my first and only dedicated macro lens.

Gotta praise the details I can get with this lens. The images look sharp, the contrast is great, IQ still looks good even for ...

Yesterday, I purchased the Sony 90mm FE lens with high hopes of fast focusing and great image quality.  Sadly today I returned it. The lens just did not measure up.  Mounted on the Sony a7s I found the indoor focusing a bit slow and more often than not the lens would overshot and quickly return and lock the focus correctly.  While this would be acceptable in most cases, I expected something better for a lens that cost this much.  The image quality is very good even wide open, but not what I ...
