*Cut and pasted from the Sony X thread*

More images, this time I decided to go to the Montreal International Jazz festival's final night with no real plans other than taking some photos. I took the Sony 28mm with me along with the Samyang 135mm lens on the Sony A7s.

I will be honest, I am not much for taking wide angled portrait shots so the 28mm is not growing on me. Personally I prefer a 50mm focal length and longer, anyways as the night went on, I actually swapped out the 28mm for the 135mm to get some tighter shots of the performers on stage.

This band in particular is called Monkey Junk and were pretty talented. Anyways, all shows are with the Samyang 135.

Just picked this up, very interesting lens! Tough to manage with moving targets, I need more practice...

I think it's pretty incredible you guys are able to shoot concerts/dancing with this lens.


Here's one of a completely static subject :)
