Camera Gear

In a nutshell

... I use Sony gear and here's why:

  1. Mirrorless is the future of photography and Sony are setting the standard (a very high standard at that).
  2. The focussing system found within Sony cameras is like nothing else on the market and in my opinion far superior to rival brands.
  3. Not only can I use the selection of Sony lenses on my camera but I can also mount lenses from any other brand, making my system extremely versatile.
  4. Finally, the Sony community is fantastic!

Sony Zeiss Sonnar T* FE 55mm F1.8 ZA ~ This standard prime lens with a 55mm focal length and large F1.8 maximum aperture offers stunning ZEISS Sonnar contrast and resolution for full-frame E-mount bodies.

The big, bright maximum aperture means you can shoot handheld in low-light conditions while still getting outstanding sharpness and clarity.

Sony FE 70-200mm F4 G OSS ~ In addition to an ideal zoom range for nature, sports, and other photography that requires a bit more “reach” that a mid-range zoom provides, this lens offers outstanding corner-to-corner sharpness from 70mm to 200mm in a compact, lightweight unit that is a perfect match for compact full-frame E-mount bodies like the α7 series. Being a G Lens it can also produce smooth, creamy background bokeh.
