All autofocus Sony FE and E-mount lenses for A7 A9

Sony E-mount Prime Lenses | Sony E-mount zoom Lenses | Zeiss Batis Lenses

Sony make questionably the best mirrorless cameras on the market with their new Sony A9 body aimed at sports and wedding photography and the high megapixel Sony A7R II for landscape and studio photography still highly regarded for a camera released in August 2015.

Even some two years later the Sony A7R II is an excellent buy right now as prices are dropping rapidly as the Sony A7R II is being replaced with the new Sony A7R III or Sony A9R. Today you can get a brand new 42MP Sony A7R II from as little as £1,700. This is a 50% reduction on the list price of over £3,000.

It makes good sense if you don’t currently own a Sony A7R II but want to move into mirrorless to purchase one now and invest in some quality Sony lenses for the same price as just the Sony A7R III / Sony A9R body without lenses. The A7R II is still a highly commended camera and still more then adequate with that huge 42MP sensor. And of course if you do upgrade to the Sony A9R later you can still use all your E-mount lenses and benefit from any early issues with the A9R being fixed / updated. I was one of the first to purchase the Nikon D800 and that camera had early problems.

The Sony E-mount has always been trying to catch up with huge amount of lenses offered for Nikon and Canon but Sony has been slowly building up the lenses they offer and now you can pretty much get any lens focal range or aperture that you need. Here is a full run down of all the Sony Autofocus lenses available right now for the Sony A7 A9 full frame cameras.

New Samyang Auto Focus lenses for Sony FE 14mm 50mm

Im a big fan of Samyang lenses excellent construction and very sharp images. I’ve owned both the 14mm 2.8 ultra wide angle and the 12mm 2.8 fisheye which Ive used extensively on a full frame Nikon D800 and then also the crop sensor Samyang 8mm 2.8 fisheye.

The 14mm 2.8 is one of the best options for astro photography and even when I also had the Nikkor 14-24mm 2.8 I tended to use the Samyang 14mm more as its far lighter and smaller, image quality is negligible. The Nikkor 14-24mm lets in a bit more light for astrophotography as a 30 second photo at 2.8 on the Samyang lens I could achieve similar exposure at 25 seconds on the Nikkor 14-24mm at 2.8.

Now that Samyang have started rolling out their 14mm and 50mm prime lenses in auto focus for the Sony FE full frame. I’ve always been a manual focus shooter and as my photography tends to be more landscape I generally shoot with my focus set to infinity. But as the Sony A7R cameras have a really good auto focus it does make sense to use that.

Downside still with the 14mm Sony FE Samyang is there is still no filter thread, you can of course use the Samyang filter hood adaptor but this is a rather bulky option.

Dunure Castle Ayrshire Red Sky

Along the west coast of Scotland near the town of Ayr is Dunure Castle. A very scenic part of Scotland often overlooked in favour of the highlands of Scotland. The site dates back to the 13th century but the castle was built around the 15th century.

Photo taken with the 36mp Sony A7R, 24mm prime lens with a 52mm polarising filter. A single RAW file.

I’m subscribed to the aurora borealis watchlist in the UK and when theres a chance of the aurora borealis being visible in the North of the UK they send out notifications. One of which I got tonight, if your interested in receiving an email notification your self then just visit http://aurorawatch.lancs.ac.uk

However it was very cloudy and raining here tonight but there was a break in the rain so I slipped out at 1am to see what it was like. I popped down to Dunure castle but no sign of anything dramatic happening in the sky. There was a small break in the heavy clouds that I managed to see some stars through.

Taken on the Sony A7R with 24mm fixed prime lens at f2.8, ISO 1600 and 30 second exposure.

Gothic Quarter Barcelona

While in Barcelona for a week I took a night out on my own to photograph the Sagrada Familia and around the Gothic Quarter. I got down to the Sagrada Familia shortly after 10pm which gave me till 12am to get some shots in before the lights went out on the Church at midnight, always seems to be very busy outside but as the widest lens I had was a fixed 24mm that was fine as all my shots where up avoiding any people.

After midnight I headed down to the Gothic Quarter which as I was expecting was quite eerie to wander the tight, dark narrow streets after dark. Some of the little dark streets you will find the odd drug dealer whom where very cheerie and friendly although a few minutes chat to break the ice and move on I’d recommend then you turn another corner and find a few folk just chilling like here.
