yah i'm really a 135 guy on my canon days. i love the compression or the angle of view. it can eliminate unwanted clutters in the background.

wait, you're not the antidote. you need some explaining to do with my wife. :) lol

I also learned from Manny Ortiz video that the AF on the native is better compared to the adapted one.

Very cool sunset Eddie. Did you fly your drone from a golf course? Here's what I found on Google maps...:-)

Thanks Gene, there’s a golf course next to my house so I basically just took the drone straight up from my garden. On my earlier shot where I was pointing the camera straight down the golf course is just out the frame to the right hand side

Here’s a screen grab from google maps

nice shot. What’s your thoughts on the AF speed? I keep contemplating changing from my Batis to it but I love my Batis 85 so concerned i won’t like the added size, weight and possibly slow af speed

thanks. the AF wasnt too bad. I wasn't paying too much attention to it really but it did a fine job. had a little problem when the sun went down though. surprisingly it was lighter than it looks but keep in mind I been using heavy lenses so i'm not sure how much more heavy it is compared to the batis. overall experience, I would love to have it if I did more portraits.
