Universal glasses for fullframe Sony A7/A7R/A9

3 months 2 weeks ago #679637 by Lucas955
Hi I have glass Sony / Zeiss F1.8 55mm. I am looking for some universal glass of ideal top quality which does not focus manually. DLe everything 55mm which I have come out as super top glass. Do you have experience with similar Zeiss or GM 1.4 24mm - or some macro glass like Sony F2.8 90mm? TO GM attracts me should be about a lot of quality, I want it for regular photography and portrait and objects from nearby. Thanks for the feedback. Thank you

I compared the lenses for the fullframe Sony A7 / A9. We are a little clueless I want a more versatile lens, but if necessary I can take a small object from close to "detail"
I was looking for Sony FE 24mm f / 1.4 GM vs Sony / Zeiss FE 35mm f / 1.4 ZA Distagon T vs Sony FE 50mm f / 1.4 ZA Planar. I think the best would be 24 or 35mm but it is about the quality, sharpness and how to handle the object to take a picture, such an occasional replacement, macros, I looked at the macro lens Sony 90mm 2.8 but somehow did not address me though ordinary photos, but I need a universal not strictly macro glass.
Your experience, advice, tips?

They don't make what you want. Mostly because it's impossible. If they did, it would be available.

If you want macro, you want a a longer lens for magnification power. If you want. If you want to do other work, you need a lens suitable for that. And if you're considering a Zeiss Distagon, you clearly have the budget for more than one lens.

Here: figure out what you most want to (one thing) and get a lens appropriate to that. Practice. Figure out what more you want to do, and then figure out what lens is needed for that.

I could be wrong.

Have you considered the Sony FE 20mm 1.8, like the 24mm it is very sharp and has a minimum focus distance of just over 7 inches - ideal for wide angle macro.
If you don´t mind manual, the Laowa 100mm 2.8 is allegedly sharper than the Sony 90mm and will get you closer with a 2x magnification. Their 15mm macro is pretty amazing as well.

Thank you for your advice most probably look at the Sony GM 24mm 1.4, but we'll see what I said. Too bad there is no quality lens with stabilization and good aperture, I did not find ... I'll look around. I will shoot the macro at least it is more of a zoom / detail than a macro. But I don't want to buy a macro lens when I shoot different things and details only occasionally.

Yes it´s a pain that not many are stabilized, i use a video head and tripod and when on the move a gimbal, the Weebill S supports the A7 series and up to the 24-70 GM in weight - worth a look..
