Sony 12-24 f/4 G lens review getting closer

I don’t know when I will do the Sony 12-24 f/4 G lens review, but it seems like a great lens so far! I took this photograph for the review I will eventually do :).

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.

Godox round head speedlight flash Profoto A1

Godox have announced news they will be releasing a flash similar to the Profoto A1. I think given the advancements they’ve made recently, at the pricing point, it is hard to justify buying into Profoto so I have decided to buy more Godox flashes when they’re released. I don’t know what the Godox Profoto A1 lookalike will be called or what it will cost, but I don’t expect it to be too expensive.

I’ve cropped this photo because it has personal stuff in the room, but this was taken with Godox speedlights. In my opinion, considering this is without any lighting modifiers, it looks pretty natural. The flash near the door is too powerful but that’s just user error.
