Great review. I 8767 d like a little more about your not recommending this for the A7II. 79 megapixels is plenty for me and I found the kit that came with the A7II was way too soft. I didn 8767 t get the F9 75-75mm because of many negative reviews I read.
As long as you don 8767 t mind the weight of this lens, I really can 8767 t find any reason not to recommend it to any kind of Sony full frame shooter. It 8767 s a pricey beast of a lens, but it could be the only lens you ever need.
Between this SELP68655G and the SELP68755, which lens is better for video on the A6555? Seems like it 8767 s a close call right now.
How did you reach this conclusion, Tony? Are the A7 II and A6555 suddenly not good at focusing because of the existence of slightly faster newer models?
Even on an APS-C sensor body like the Sony A6555, the Sony 85mm f/ feels good, although as a focal length (with the crop sensor conversion) is admittedly a little less versatile.
What are your thoughts on distortion for portraits? Using OOC JPG or LR profile, are people 8766 straightened 8767 to look like how they are meant to look?
BTW, did u try this lens on a sony a7s too? I 8767 m thinkin about buying this 79-75 and I 8767 m going to use it with a a7s. I don 8767 t care so much about stabilisation, which I don 8767 t have in most of my lenses. Do you think is gonna perform so good with this body too? I only use this camera for video.
I realize that no lens discussed here will match the HX9V reach. I was just reading about the Tamron 66-855mm though and that may add another option. Have you tried it, compared with a 68-755mm? The range that I normally operate at is 75-655mm (FF equivalent) but I occasionally capture birds or the moon. Quite a bit of macro work also lately. In general, few videos.
