Hopefully, in the very near future, I will be able to pick up these two Sony lenses. The reason I’m picking up these two is they both have a purpose, and I’m going to explain their purposes in my opinion below.
Before we get into why I’m picking each lens I do want to say that these lenses are very expensive and by no means am I sitting on a giant pile of cash to where I can pick these up soon or whenever I want. I’m just saying this is the types of lenses that I want to get as soon as I possibly can. That said let’s move on to the Sony lenses and why I’m going to pick them.
The first lens and arguably the most important lens out of this lineup is the Sony FE 85mm f/1.4 GM Lens. This lands is an absolute beast and takes amazing portrait photos. The fact that it is a f/1.4 lens is just astounding to me, and the 85mm creates the right look with portrait photos. Obviously, this lens can be used for other things including low-light video situations but for me I’m more purchasing it for portrait and wedding work.
The other lens that I’m looking at is the Sony FE 24-105mm f/4 G OSS Lens. This lens is the perfect all-around lens that I will probably have attached to my camera of the majority of the time. Basically, the reason I want this lens is because it’s nice and compact yet has a good zoom range. This lens would be good for out and about sessions that you’re not specifically targeting a certain type of photograph. For example street photography or general journalism type of photography. Some of you may be wondering why I’m picking up a lens that is at f/4, The reason why I’m picking this lens it’s because well it’s the only option like this and f/4 is not really an issue with the Sony A9 being attached to it.
Of course, once I have these lenses and test them out, I will be sure to give you a post talking about them / reviewing them.
