E 35/1,8 OSS
FD 50/1,8 canon
E 18-105/4 G OSS at F8,0
|price paid:||189 €|
|positive:||Sharp from F2,8|
Small and light
|negative:||F2,8 is littlebit slow|
|comment:||Great small lens for portraits. Sharpness can allow lot of croping, so this lens can act alike FF 90-180mm zoom even at F2,8, surely from F3,5, if shutter speed is accordingly selected and 3000x2000 pix from the centre of the frame are enough. |
As this lens is really small and light for 90mm FF, I compline because of littlebit slow max aperture. I hope 60/2 lens can come out from Sigma and this one can be awesome. If it happens, I am going to replace my 60/2,8.
My feeling is, that IS is mandatory for novadays small and light mirrorless camera's lenses, if the sensor has no stabilisation.
Added after few month use:
Now with the first IBIS-loaded a6500 Sigma 60/2,8 makes lot of sense. If macro is not the interest, savigs can be remarkabel, as IBIS-loaded body cost can be transfered for use of all lenses with no OSS I own.
The main reason I still have it, is sharpness, nice color and small/light shape. It gives to me 2 EV steps more at 60(90)mm compared to zoom Sony E 18-135/3.5-5.6 OSS I own, for using indoor shooting.
Replaced with Sigma 56/1,4 DC DN.
