Happy new year

I’m a bit late but happy new year everyone :). I am going to improve the quality of my reviews and try make the menu system a lot easier to navigate on my site this year.

Culling posts

I’m gradually trying to make my site look neater, and I’ve been going through a lot of posts and deleting them. So far I’ve deleted 100+, it’ll take a while but hopefully in the next few months it will look better.

I’ve ordered some perspex/acrylic/plexiglass (it goes by many names) and as I plan to take photographs of the products I review, it will help give the reviews a better look I think. Writing reviews is not my favourite pass time, but I also think I am pretty critical and honest when it comes to camera equipment, and I like to help people so I think I should try to share that knowledge better :).

Although I’ve thought about editing the website theme for a while now, I don’t think there’s much point until I’ve edited the content–that is more important :).

Sony 12-24mm f/4.0 e-mount lens review incoming

I think I have decided to keep the Sony 12-24mm f/4.0 ultra wide angle lens. I’d like to write the review properly, unlike my other reviews, so it might take a while haha.

It’s a lens that doesn’t really get much hype, and perhaps people are a bit put off by spending that much on something which isn’t a GM lens. My initial impressions are that it’s incredibly lightweight but it doesn’t feel as plasticy as I was expecting. Think more along the lines of any typical poly-carbonate (Canon “L”) lens. I’ve never had a problem with plastic being used for lenses, providing it feel somewhat rugged, in fact, in some cases it’s nicer (your fingers won’t freeze to it like metal, haha).

I would say the biggest problem I have with it is that 12mm is very hard to frame with, even indoors. For example, it can make a living room look too big and the furniture too stretched out in the corners. For bathroom shots though, there’s a significant improvement over the 16mm focal length.

When I got the 24-70 gm lens, I was a bit doubtful of it because it seemed a bit big and whatnot. After a few weeks, I grew to really love it and it’s perhaps my favourite lens right now :). So although I’m not 100% in love with the Sony 12-24mm f/4.0 e-mount lens, I think it’s one I could grow to love. I will be using it every day, all day, for a while, for interior photography.
