Belt holster, easily all day.

I can't do shoulder either unless it's a small prime. Think tank digital holster 10 + thick leather belt or think tank belt.

My wife already thinks I look like a dork carrying a camera around chasing my kids around the playground, with a belt holster she would pretend not to know me, haha.

When I showed her my Peak Design Capture Clip she laughed at me for a few minutes.

digital holster is the least nerdy, at least your gear is concealed!

I wear it with a cross body strap attached to my camera (not the bag itself), and to the untrained eye, it can look like you're simply carrying a camera bag, but in actuality, it's a holster that holds all of your gear on your waist, none on your shoulder. Use your existing belt, seriously, any leather belt will be fine as long as you are committed to just one lens one body.

with the photo attached, how can you tell if it's attached to the belt or not? Makes a huge difference how you carry the weight.

All Stirred Up!

After a vigorous stir with a wooden chopstick to freshen up the head of the beer, I wound up with this result.

And...

A friend of mine had some old wood lying around on his property and he was kind enough to build a couple of platforms for me. They are both about 2' x 2' in size.

Below the beer shot is a pull back of my Stella Artois shot afterward too.

Thanks guys. It was just got me down a bit when I liked the image enough in camera, just to find i missed focus when got it on the large monitor. By then it was far too late to recreate the shot. It was tough shooting f1.8 focus and recomposed, and I had the camera like 2" from the ground.

i know the feeling especially when i was in canon. i always hear the green focus confirmation with a beep, when i get to computer, many are out of focus. even if I used the outer points. hit rate with sony even without the eye focus is much better.

when i shoot with fast apertures, focus and recompose is not a good idea.

I don't think anyone noticed it was out of focus except you Anh. It's a great image and there's a lot more good going on in the photo than focus accuracy. Posing and composition are great.

But yes I hate the feeling of knowing everything is good except that the AF is off ever so slightly.

Carlo, how do you like that 35? I just returned from a family trip and could have used a 35 lens with AF to capture shots of my son and family. I used my iPhone most of the time because it was convenient. Also used the FE 55 some of the time.

35mm is my favorite focal length for documentary photos, events, and environmental portraits when you have a nice scene you want to pull into the frame....It's a great story telling focal length. This is why I love the RX1 cameras so much.

I've owned the 35ZA before and have missed it since I sold it. It has the same rendering as the Sonnar in the RX1 cameras...its not as sharp, but the bokeh is just as smooth, colors are vibrant, and the look at f1.4 is very different from f2.

The downside to the lens is CA in the borders of OOF highlights, but the alternative is something like the really harsh over-corrected OOF rendering of the Sigma.

Thank you for the feedback. Looks great to me from the samples you have shared. I had the original Canon 35L f1.4 and loved it. I sold it and have been missing a 35mm for the reasons you mentioned.

I captured this with the FE55. I think 35mm would have brought in more of the farm to help tell a story. Btw, I'm still not sure about the skin tones here. This was shot about 6 PM so it's not harsh light I would say. The original had too much orange tones.

David, I'm not seeing your image come through. Same for Carlo's. Flickr issue?

Edit: Nevermind. It's working now.

Awesome colors and composition!

Another very nice shot David! Hard to follow that one!

Here's another angle of from the scene shared earlier. I like this one better.

I am critical about what appeals to me regarding bokeh. For example, I dislike the oof rendering from my Batis lenses...it feels a bit swirly and astigmatic (love them regardless!). The Otus 55mm will always be my standard for "perfect bokeh", though I've seen some people be very disparaging of the Otus' bokeh. Such a personal taste thing. All that to say that I actually do not dislike the Sigma's bokeh, though I concede it is no match for the Sony's oof rendering.

Indeed, last night it dawned on me that I may be heading towards buying a Sigma for my needs for three reasons: 1. I have always liked the IQ from the lens (though I have a small issue regarding color), and 2. It's the most affordable high-performing 35mm f/1.4 lens I can think of, and 3. It has the same 67mm filter thread as my Batis 25mm and 85mm, which adds considerably to its overall affordableness.

Downsides are: 1. not native, 2. adapter adds weight making it a heavier choice, not weather sealed.

Sooooo, Nadim or Gene: Get rid of your Sigma 35.........and give me a super nice price for it. Pretty please? :p
