  1. Hey guys, I'm upgrading to the full frame mirrorless Sony A7iii. I've been debating what lenses to get. I currently mainly use a 16-80mm and 70-200mm on an aps-c camera. I shoot a variety of subjects, mainly landscapes and cityscapes, but also some events and some portrait shots. So here's my thinking. The Sony 24-70mm f2.8 G Master is a great lens, but £2,100 and 950g so really expensive and the camera would be front heavy. So Tamron has just bought out a 28-75mm f2.8 for £800. It's not as wide as the Sony, but considerably cheaper and lighter at 550g. So I thought I'd go for this and the Sony F4 70-200mm. Anyway..... I was just talking to a fellow photographer (btw a lot more professional than me) and he says his go to lens is the Nikon 24-120mm. Ok. So I looked at the Sony equivalent: 24-105mm F4 £1,200 650g. I thought the image quality wouldn't be so good for such a zoom range, but apparently it is and the bokeh is ok. The ISO is so good on the latest cameras that you can boost it to compensate for slower lenses without noticeable noise. So..... Do I get the 28-75 and 70-200, or just the 24-105mm (which would mean I probably don't change lens so often)???? Decisions decisions!!! Has anyone got any thoughts? Maybe an entirely different suggestion even! Stephen
  2. Good afternoon all, After reading numerous reviews on this lenses....all good. Wondering how alamy contributors find this product if you use one. I use the 70 - 300 l series already...but would appreciate any opinions. Thanks Best regards Sparks
  3. Can anyone think of a reason why Adobe ACR (latest cc version) is only correcting for chromatic aberration when opening RAF (RAW) files from Fuji X-T1 with 35mm f/1.4 lens and not applying a correction for distortion or vignetting? There is no separate lens profile available as I understand it, Adobe simply apply what Fuji supply in the RAF file. An information box bottom right corner in ACR confirms it "The RAW file contains a built-in lens profile for correcting chromatic aberration. The profile has already been applied automatically to this image." I have seen other people comment that the box (for other Fuji lenses) sometimes states "chromatic aberration and vignetting". When I open RAF files from my Fuji 50-140mm f/2.8 the box states "distortion, chromatic aberration and vignetting". Are Fuji suggesting that the 35mm f/1.4 is free from distortion? It clearly isn't, I use it every day to document books and artwork, almost always with lots of vertical and horizontal lines in the subject, and there is often very significant distortion (barrel). At the moment I have to adjust the distortion manually which is very time consuming. I have the latest firmware loaded in the X-T1 body and in the lens, and am using the very latest version of Photoshop CC and ACR. Any ideas? Marc
  4. Popular Photography magazine has an article saying Sony will be bringing out 3 new primes and a zoom this spring and summer. 28mm f/2, ($450.00) 35mm f/1.4, ($1,600.00) 90mm f2.8 macro, ($1,098.00) and a 24-240mm f/3.5-6.3. ($998.00) All optimized for the a7 line, but works on APS-C format ILC. I don't shoot with these cameras, but am aware one of Sony's weaknesses were their lack of good glass forcing the use of adapters. I will be curious to know how good these lenses are. Betty
  5. Hi Folks's, i have a planned trip to shoot wildlife in Africa this coming March. All of my telephotos are Canon L series, for the ease of getting close and distant shots in a hurry from a car without working to cameras and big prime telephotos i was considering the Sigma 150-600 sports Telezoom. Has anybody here used or own this lens and are there any serious problems or downfalls? my biggest concern is lack of sharpness. I will be very happy to know of your experiences before shelving out €2000. Thanks everybody, Paul.
