My journey with my new Sony Alpha A7II continues. In my last post I discuss the importance of having an in-body image stabilization (IBIS) system in a mirrorless camera. When doing concert photography, IBIS plays a less significant role than a camera's autofocus system. Sony claims to have an improvement of approximately 30% over its predecessor. In this post, I take my camera to the wonderful world of Alice in Wonderland and provide a field report about the AF system, the handling and my thoughts on the increased weight of the mark II. I find the Mad T Party a perfect place to test out my gear. Thanks as always for stopping by.
Like my brothers, I am a gear head. Any opportunity I have to try new camera equipment, I jump on it like bees to a hive. Not too long ago, a friend offered me deal on an amazing mirrorless camera from FujiFilm, the X-T1. He had recently joined the Leica Owners' Club and no longer needed this retro-modern looking body. Initially I was hesitant, but couldn't resist the lens adapter package he threw in. Maybe one day he'll let me mess around with his 35mm Summicron.
I spent a majority of the winter holiday immersing myself with the X-T1 and found the camera extremely fun to use. Fuji is known to have spectacular JPEGs and I decided to put it to the test. You can read more about my findings below.
Update: Since writing this post, I have added the Fuji XF 56mm f/1.2 lens to the arsenal and will eventually report my findings about this well received prime lens.
When I ventured into the world of full frame mirrorless cameras, I immediately knew I would need a good telephoto zoom. The newly released G lens was and still is a highly rated lens for the Sony Alpha A7 series. Although I usually wait about 6 months before I write a review about any piece of gear I own, my experience was so good that it warranted a write up. If you are already an A7 owner, I am certain you will enjoy having this glass in your arsenal. For more information, please feel free to click the link below.
