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 FE 85mm f1.8 review

26 Nov 2018 Thomas

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. In Thomas's review he compares it against rivals from Zeiss, Tamron, Sigma and Sony!

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.

Find out if it's the ideal kit zoom for Sony full-framers in Thomas's review!

01 Oct 2018 Gordon Laing
