Just a quick sample shots from the class I taught two weeks ago. Now each person has used his/hers own style when processing and I didn't have any control on it. Sony is using top of the line 85mm f1.4 GM, Nikon with 70-200mm f2.8 and I am with my 110mm f2.
I like the 2nd from the top image from the Nikon. The Nikon has the most natural non flash look with no bright highlights on the skin retaining more skin texture. This is just my preference in how background and subject balance very well. Shadow transition is very nice with the Nikon example.
So easy to critique and talk big on the internet. All image here are great. This is just an example of how every photographer shoots differently.
When I shoot in all kinds of lighting from mixed lighting, open shadow, bright sun both in lens or with sun behind the Sony colour science is different. In most cases I do not have to touch vibrance at all or the reds and orange will start getting aggressive. I still find it easier to ramp up colours with fuji or canon vs toning down the colours I get straight out of camera with Sony.
This weekend I've been analyzing my 3 camera systems and I'll say they are so different that it's such a variety of looks just by the camera render. No question the Fuji has this certain look that is just fantastic once I massage my raw's in post. I just have to work incredibly much harder to get this magic with the Sony files when I use adapted canon glass. I'm just resistant in going full on with G master sony glass $$$$ but in due time I will.

Lately I've been trying to test my Fuji and 50-140mm combo. I'll have to say it's such an incredible combo. I sure wish the 8-16 f/2.8 hits the street soon. I do like my 10-24mm but lately i seem to really miss f/2.8 for a UWA zoom.
