To be honest, I have a bunch of 85s, 90s, and 100s
I shot an evening event the other nite, with the M9 covering everything 35 and wider, and the A7 50 and up.
At 85 I used:
DSC09002 by unoh7, Canon LTM 85/1.5
At f/2 it's very good, but at 1.5 it's a bit wild and maybe too glowy for paid work.
I liked the FL so well at this party on the A7, I'm thinking maybe I need something more modern looking wide open.
I have a CV 75/2.5 which is great for everything 75 on both cameras, and tiny as well. But in dim light I don't care for it.
The roki/sammy I've always resisted, but maybe I need to re think that.
Anyway the 75 lux is a benchmark lens and I can use it on the M9 too which is huge. But of course at a party I won't trust my focus on the M9 even close to wide open, so the real use would be with the A7.
AF really would be sweet if it sort of works with the LAEA4 and AF minolta or possibly zeiss. The one thing which spooks me a bit with the minolta is there is no MF/AF switch. So I'm not sure how it will go real world.
The minolta is supposedly great wide open, better than the canon 1.2 at 1.4--which costs about the same in FD mount.
Of course I've always craved that FD 1.2 too.
I know there many many good 85ish lenses and the current cron 75/2 is fantastic, but it's just not fast enough for me to justify the cost. I'm already happy at f/2.
The 75 lux would be pretty darn fun and I think would really fit the bill, but the minolta AF cries: "affordable work horse" at 1/5 cost.
anyway love the input and passion for personal favorites.
what do we think of the zeiss/sony on an A7?
