Hey, guys,And this article, I’m going to talk about the number one best first lens, or if you could just buy one lens. What lenses you buy for your Sony camera.
Now, this is a very annoying question I’ve gotten over the years.
It’s a very tough question and one that you can’t really answer. That was extremely difficult to answer until now because who could just get away with having one lens? Unfortunately, some people are in that position.
Either it’s because they don’t have the money to buy more than one lens or they just want to have one all around lens.
They can go shoot with regardless of if it’s something that’s on a longer and shooting some portraits, shooting some landscapes.
Something is just going to get you buy, but not really compromising too many areas.
It’s been just over seven months since this lens launch. I’ve been using it since then. And this is the lens that I would recommend if you can only get one lens for use on a camera, the 24 to one of five F four zoom lens. I should turn it around here for you guys.
Now, I never would have thought that I would recommend an F for zoom lens.
When I start out in photography, I would just avoid F zoom lenses like the plague just because the sensors were not good enough to shoot at enough for they would not be enough light to get you good images if you’re in the lower light situation.
I was shooting wedding photography and if you went up to like ISO two thousand of my five D mark TEUs, which is what I shot the majority my weddings with a man. Those images did not look that good. Fast forward to today.
And these Sony cameras at 60 400, I said look better than my five day mark tooted.
So you have multiple stops of improvement and low light performance. So now, instead of sticking with two point eight zooms and even then I had a lot of times in Lorelei’s situations I’d be shooting prime lenses, F1 four of eight. I can get away with getting fantastic images with that look good quality wise with an F4 lens.
Now, on top of that, some of those lenses are aphorisms were not that sharp.
This guy is tack sharp. So I let you know why I chose this lens. First off. Twenty four to one to five is a fantastic range. Sure. A lot of people use twenty four to 70s, but I find that 70 millimeter to be a little bit limiting if you’re not in a controlled environment.
So sure, if you go out and shoot you’re doing portrait’s shots, you could set somebody up, you could get closer Rekia further.
But if you’re doing a run and gun shooting, you’re an environment that you can’t control.
You’re shooting an event 70 is just not enough. And then you’re gonna have to if you’re shooting at 70, you can crop and posts, which might be OK if you have nice seven ar3. But a lot of you guys are me buying a seven threes, which is what I’m shooting on right now.
And you really don’t want to drop in on that. Twenty four megapixel image, at least not very much.
So having that extra range to one to five is really, really helpful. Now on top of that, this thing is tax sharp. Like I mentioned. I compare this to the G.M. and it is almost as sharp. It’s extremely, extremely close sharpness wise.
And that’s on a five K display that I’m looking at it. So.
Twenty four millimeters was almost the same and shooting at seventy millimeters. It was just slightly behind the G.M. lens, surprisingly.
And that was with the G.M. stop down to F4, which does give it an advantage. So this thing is super, super sharp. On top of that, this thing has image stabilization, which the G.M. does not have that will work with the IBIS internal system and get you better stabilization.
It’s also smaller and lighter, which is really nice. It’s better balanced and it’s thirteen hundred dollars, which isn’t cheap, but compared to twenty two hundred hours of the G.M. man, it really is a good value overall. You also have cheaper lenses.
Isn’t this only lineup that you could potentially go for like the twenty eight to seventy four.
But I just have not recommended that lens. First off, it’s not as wide as this, which isn’t that big of a difference. Twenty, twenty four. But you’re stuck at seventy instead of going to one of five and that lens is much softer. It definitely does not compare in terms of sharpness to this. Twenty four to one oh five.
And I have a variety of lenses in my arsenal and most of the time when we’re going out to shoot somewhere in a running gun situation, this is the lens that is on the camera when we’re shooting.
So all those article we’re doing, comparisons in the park, different locations like that, even for some wedding stuff, we’re using this lens because of just the flexibility that you have.
An F4 is not that bad for a lot of you guys. That car coming from, let’s say, a crop sensor, Sony camera or you’re coming from a mike for third’s.
F4 is like F2 Punti on your Sony, a sixty five hundred.
But of course you have a better zoom range compared to say it can in sixteen, the 50s or those kind of lenses.
So you can still get a good amount of blur, especially since you have that one of five. If you’re shooting some portraits, it’s not that much worse in terms of the how shallow the depth of field is. The Boca compared to a twenty four to seventy two point eight lens.
Yes, you have an advantage with a 2.8 as far as aperture of.
With this thing, you can zoom in a little bit further, a little closer. Walk back a little bit. You’ll get more compression and the boco will be fairly similar. So overall, this lens has been great. The manual focusing really, even though it is of tronic.
It does work quite well. I think Sony is improving their manual, focusing with these electronic lenses over time. The stabilization has been great. The bill quality itself is really nice. Better than the Tamron lens that I’ll be comparing it with.
And you have this little programable button. So I think the majority of people that are out there are agreeing with me on this, too, because this loss has basically been sold out ever since they came out over seven months ago.
It’s constantly on backwards. So if you do want to pick one of these up, check out the link in the article description that supports my channel and order the lens.
You might have to wait a little bit. But so far, it’s been so long and it just keeps going on backward and backward because they keep selling more than they’re making. So there you have it. If you have a different suggestion, comment down below.
I’d love to hear your guys thoughts, but all around, if you buy a single prime lens, you’re gonna be limited no matter what, if you buy a wider prime lens.
You can’t do Porch’s very well if you buy a standard size like a fifty fifty five.
You can’t do group shots very well. Nothing really wide. If you buy something longer, that of course you’re limited on the white end.
So being able to have twenty four to one or five with an F4 aperture with these new sensors that perform really well I think in a very sharp lens with really fast autofocus and something you just put on the camera and be pretty much ready for every situation. It is really a good deal. Value wise.
Not bad. It’s all the more expensive in the Canon and Nikon counterparts.
But it is quite sharp, so I can’t blame them too much. That’s it, guys. Thank you guys for watching.
I will be talking about the difference between this lens and that. Tamron twenty 28 to seventy five f twenty. Another great value lens. Less expensive than this in the future. So guys do not want to miss out on that article.
