Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM "A"

Review Date: Jan 16, 2021 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

Pros: Sharpness, quick focus
Barrel came loose and I had to open it up and tighten screws

I have mixed feelings about this lens. First off, I'm more of a zoom guys myself, so I wasn't really used to a 35mm. In general, I tend to shoot wider (24mm) or tighter (75mm) so this lens was really in the middle of both.

The lens is sharp and focuses quickly, and overall, the images look good.

The lens feels like a tank, but I did have a common problem with mine. Over time, the barrel came loose causing the lens to not focus and wobble.

I was able to find instructions online, and I took it apart and fixed it (I think).

If you're looking for a 35mm, this is a great lens.

Nikon D750

Review Date: Jan 15, 2021 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,500.00 | Rating: 8 

Pros: Good in low light, lots of Nikon lenses, focusing in lower light
some issues with color correction in Lightroom (files would look good in camera and be hard to replicate with RAW file)

Before the Nikon D750, I was using the D600. The D750 was a big step up. Now, I'm using the Z6 and Z6ii, and I prefer them over the D750.

I used the D750 for about 3 years for weddings, and I really enjoyed it. I found it did well with finding focus accurately and quickly. Great battery life.

Honestly, I would have kept using it if the color issues hadn't happened. The only real big downside was video. It didn't do well with autofocus.
