  1. I'm looking at the sony 35mm oss because I'm a bit new at photography so oss might be quite useful for me. The Sigma 30mm looks awesome though. It's got me conflicted because it's cheaper and seems better but there's no stabilization in the sony a6000 I picked up. I'm guessing either will get me nice shots with a narrow depth of field compared to the kit lens tho

  2. Thank you for the video.
    Do you have a video for lenses that are compatible with full frame. I currently have an A6000 but will eventually like to upgrade to full frame.
    Thanks again for your time

  3. Interesting video, I just wonder why everyone and you say about lowlight since most of photography (not videos) are shot at golden hours and day time! Portrait is a niche for some, so is wedding. But most humans are shooting landscapes, street, family, sports, vacations and all of them do not require wide open, shallow depth. Yet the color, sharpness are key for everybody. What do you think?

  4. I love this video, I have the 16 and 30. What I love also is the preset you are using, it looks like a fuji chrome style. What are you actually using, especially when you are demonstrating the 16mm lens?

  5. Can someone help me? I like car photography and i don't know which lens is better 30mm 1.4/ 56mm 1.4 or 85mm 1.8 ( Sony a6000 body) help me please🤷🏽‍♂️🤷🏽‍♂️

  6. @that1cameraguy soo…. you preferred sigma 16mm over the 10-18 for vlogging (I'm thinking of either for my collection for my a6400) and as you mentioned, with no oss, i'm wondering how you overcame it or the reasons either than 10-18 being f4.

  7. should i go with 30mm f1.4 for vlogging ( is it too close to my face or good for a vloG) with a6500

    love frm INDIA

  8. Hello. I'm starting to prepare my trip around Japan and so, I will buy my first camera. I'm not a vlogger, I just want to documentat and take some good photos.

    I chose the a6000, but I have doubts regarding which lens I should choose, if the kit lens (16-50mm), or 35mm f1. 8 (or other).

    As I'm quite new to photography, and I still have a lot to learn and to experiment so, which one you think is the best choice for me?

    Thank you

    Awesome video btw 🙂

  9. Firstly, Great Video! 2nd, here's a more accurate APS-C conversion for FF Equivalent, Sigma 16mm/F1.4(24mm/F2.1), Sigma 30mm/F1.4(45mm/F2.1), and Sony 85mm/F1.8(127.5mm/F2.7). Focal length and aperture are impacted by the crop sensor.

  10. Would you ever switch the 85mm 1.8 for the Samyang 85 1.4? Asking for your opinion on it as well, if you can get around to it.

  11. Very nice lenses for range of focal length !! Did you try Rokinon 85mm f1.8 as an alternative to Sony 85mm f1.8? Rokinon 85mm f1.8 is a full manual lens specifically designed for Aps-c mirrorless. Can you pls review this lens as compared to Sony 85mm f1.8? Thank you

  12. I have Sony 50mm 1.8 OSS and also sigma 30mm 1.4 – for some reason I prefer Sony 50mm 1.8 OSS for fashion shoots/potraits and I use sigma 30mm for architecture and also for shooting food and objects – maybe I will grab the 16mm one as well altho if you need only one lens I would go for the Sigma 30mm cause its so diverse – you can shoot everything with that lens from architecture,fashion and also food/objects.

  13. Hi, I have a question that maybe nobody talked about yet. When using the Sony FE 85mm in a crop sensor like the Sony a6000, you loose pixels when printing out the photos, or not? I wonder if I'm right, since this lens will be a 127mm equivalent in a crop sensor, which means that the image is already being cropped, so loosing some pixels as a result. I'd appreciate your thoughts. Thanks and greetings from Argentina!!

  14. Don't suppose there's a video explaining when to use f1.4 and the lowest aperature? Like why use 2.4 as opposed to 2.6 etc?

  15. good lens choices. its not f1.4 on a crop sensor. It'll actually have an f stop of 2.1. you need to multiply the fstop as well as the focal length.

  16. I have the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 and the Sony 85mm f/1.8 but, right now I an struggling along with the Sony 16mm f/2.8 and Sigma 19mm f/2.8 lenses for my wide angle options. Neither of these lenses really ring my chimes!

    I have avoided the Sigma 16mm f/1.4 because of its size and weight but, I think that I may just dump the 16mm and 19mm lenses that I already own and opt for the Sigma 16mm f/1.4.

    I also have a Sony 50mm f/1.8 OSS lens and the Samyang 12mm f/2.0…

    I shoot with a pair of APSC cameras: A6400 and A6500…

  17. Hey man, love your videos, just wanted to add something. I hear a lot of youtubers refer to “upgrading” to a full frame. A full frame is not necessarily an upgrade. Yes specs wise it’s an upgrade but a lot of people actually prefer apsc cameras. I know a lot of professionals who use m43 cameras even. Just saying but keep up the awesome videos!

  18. I have a Sony a6000 with a Rokinon 12mm 2.0. I was considering the sigma 16mm? I was wanting a landscape lens ideas… or is the sigma a nice upgrade .. thanks
