The Sony 50mm f1.8 is one of their cheapest lenses, meant to give shooters a taste of what it's like to shoot with a fast prime on a lighter budget with a very classic style of rendering. This lens has a cheap plastic construction and a clunky autofocus system but it is very small and very lightweight making it a great walk-around lens. There are a lot of technical issues but with the 6 element design, the lens produces some absolutely wonderful images with a more retro vibe.
The Sony A7 III, like the A9 and A7r III, has some very impressive new internal hardware that allows for faster memory card performance, a larger buffer, as well as UHS-II memory cards compatibility. We'll have full test for the A7 III up very soon. But until then, we've compiled the results from the fastest memory cards for the Sony A7 III, from the results of the Sony A7rIII or you can check the Sony A9 memory card guide, they all seem to perform very similar.
Deep within Kyushu island in the Ariake Sea of Japan are these cool Torii gates that get flooded twice a day with the high tide. The official name for this spot is The Floating Torii Gate of Oouo Shrine. Not sure what the story is with these, every time I read up on them the story seems slightly different and it never makes any sense. Something about blessing the waters for better fishing, or there is something about some giant fish. That's usually how it goes with historical sites in Japan. A giant catfish, a giant fish, a mountain god, etc. Fun stuff.
We were lucky. The rivers all around us were on the brink of overflowing and many of the neighbor towns had to evacuate. We live in a giant apartment complex that could probably withstand a tsunami so we didn't have too much to worry about, but as the rivers all around us started filling up and our phones continued beeping with alerts about evacuations for areas near us, we were still a bit nervous. It never let up from relentless pouring rain.
The Handevision 75mm f2.4 lens is a small lightweight manual lens designed for mirrorless camera systems including the Leica. The lens features 5 elements in 5 groups for incredible contrast and color rendering and a 6 blade rounded aperture for butter smooth bokeh at f2.4. You might be wondering, who is Handevision? are Handevision lenses good? Is this Handevision IBERIT 75mm worth it?
Today I want to talk a little about this hidden little gem of a lens, the Handevision 75mm f2.4. Full review coming soon, but since those take forever to build, compile and process, I wanted to share a little bit about why this lens is unique and why it's totally worth it. So the big question, since there are so many lenses out there for both Sony and Fujifilm, what's the point of these Handevision lenses? What makes them special? Especially this 75mm f2.4?
