Sony FE 85mm f1.4 GM review

11 Feb 2019 Thomas

Sony's FE 85mm f1.4 GM is a high-end prime lens for its mirrorless cameras. The short telephoto focal length and bright f1.4 focal ratio make it ideal for portraits and the de-clickable aperture ring is ideal for video work. Thomas compared it to the Sigma ART and Zeiss Otus, as well as the budget Sony f1.8 versions to help…

The Sony A6400 is a mid-range mirrorless camera with a 24 Megapixel APSC sensor, 4k video, powerful AF, built-in viewfinder and touchscreen that flips-up by 180 degrees to face the subject. Successor to the A6300, it's Sony’s best camera yet for vlogging. Check out my full review!

Sony's FE 85mm f1.8 is a short telephoto lens for Sony mirrorless cameras. Costing one third of the FE 85mm f1.4 G Master, it represents a fairly light and relatively affordable option for anyone wanting to shoot portraits, street or details.

Tamron 28-75mm f2.8 review

05 Nov 2018 Thomas

The Tamron 28-75mm f2.8 is a general-purpose zoom for Sony’s full-frame mirrorless cameras. It offers a classy step-up from Sony’s entry-level FE 28-70mm f3.5-5.6, and is less than half the price of the FE 24-70mm f2.8 GM. Find out if it's the ideal kit zoom for Sony full-framers in Thomas's review!

01 Oct 2018 Gordon Laing

The Sony RX100 VI is a high-end compact aimed at enthusiasts. It takes the earlier Mark V with its 20 MP sensor, EVF, confident focusing and 4k video, but squeezes a longer 24-200mm range into essentially the same body. Find out why it's one of the best pocket travel cameras in my final review!

18 Oct 2017 Gordon Laing

The Sony FE 50mm f1.8 is an affordable standard prime lens for Alpha mirrorless cameras with a bright f1.8 focal ratio that's ideal for delivering shallow depth-of-field effects. There's lots of 50mm options for Sony's cameras, but the FE 50mm f1.8 is by far the most affordable with autofocus.

The RX10 IV updates Sony's high-end super-zoom retaining its predecessor's 24-600mm / 25x zoom and OLED EVF, but inheriting the RX100 V's sensor for phase-detect AF, 24fps bursts and 4k. There's also a touchscreen and Bluetooth; here's my review-so-far!
