Favourite lens: Sony Carl Zeiss Son­nar T* FE 35mm f/2.8 ZA

Amateur Photographer - - Technique | Mirrorless Lenses Of The Pros -

I love to shoot with the Sony Al­pha 7S along­side Sony Carl Zeiss lenses. I shoot with a prime lenses be­cause they are gen­er­ally smaller, lighter, faster and sharper than the zoom lens equiv­a­lent. The Al­pha 7S with the 20mm f/2 or 35mm f/2.8 lens is so light I can take it any­where in my bag and for­get it’s there. It is per­fect for shoot­ing land­scapes or street pho­tog­ra­phy. For por­trai­ture, I en­joy the 85mm f/1.4. It is a big lens, so not one I carry around un­nec­es­sar­ily but the im­age qual­ity is ex­cep­tional. I will use zooms for event pho­tog­ra­phy or gen­eral travel, such as the 24-70mm f/4. Lens speed is less of a pri­or­ity with the Al­pha 7S be­cause it can shoot at such high ISO set­tings.

The 85mm is per­fect for events such as the Arts fes­ti­val ‘Arc­tic Ac­tion’ in Longyear­byen Sval­bard Sony Al­pha 7S, 85mm, 1/1250sec at f/1.4, ISO 200
