we all like such different things...I love the rendering of the Sigma lenses, especially for portraits, not as much contrast, but that is just my taste...

Once I got the silly camera setup right for IBIS...it makes such a huge difference...I can't seem to get auto to work, I have to change it everytime I change lenses if I am shooting handheld...

I'm a bit confused, what are you trying to do? IBIS is automatic if you use an electronic adapter.

I think it can be set manually too for focal length of the lens

I didn't know you could adjust when using an electronic lens, essentially overriding exif

to be honest, I can't remember fully, but I just leave mine on auto, but I thought you could change the focal length in the options which changes the amount of IBIS.

I could be wrong, but I thought thats how it worked when you set in manually.

anyone remembers what article was that that talks about the disadvantage regarding using electronic shutter in terms of image quality? somebody ask me and I told him there is a problem but I can't find the article.

Using EFCS over 1/1000 causes iq issues and weird bokeh. It's on FM forum somewhere. Basically In really good light you are better to turn it off.
There was a side by side comparison using the FE55 and it was really noticeable

Yeah that's the process for dumb adaptors and dumb lenses. For everything else it defaults to auto on my camera

Hmmm. Backing up my photos to 2TB My Book.
I think I need to go through and delete some. Keeping the RAW files and the Jpg's and I have 96,890 on my hard drive hahaha.
I need to find some time to clean these up a bit :)

from Dpreview (external link) about Sigmas native E-mount:

"You now make a mount adapter for Sony E-mount, but are you planning native support for the Sony E-mount in the future?

Yes, that’s our plan. Our plan is to develop full-frame lenses for Sony E mount, and in the future we will have more E mount lenses. But it takes time. Normally it takes about two years to develop one lens, sometimes three. So even if I start the process now, the lens might come out in two years time."

Looks like will need to wait for B35 or adapt 35mm art to MC-11 :(

Hehe yeah its all subjective. Having owned the Sigma 35 and 50 in the past, I'd say that while they're very sharp and contrasty, they were not my favorites for portraits.

My favorite 35mm and 50mm lenses for portraits are not the sharpest at all......Sony FE 35 1.4 and Canon 50L.

At least they are coming. I just hope they are small and not just dslr sized with an e mount on the back. If they are small and perform like the current art lenses I'll be all over them. I loved the 35 art, just too big for my liking now. Some of my favourite baby shots of Callum are 35 art

It might be the best for dumb adapters...but for this dumb operator...I get better results if I tell the camera that I have the 135 on. When set to Auto, it doesn't seem to compensate enough, and I have find that shutter speeds under 1/200 I have trouble getting a sharp shot, if I set it to 135, I get sharp images down to 1/100. I only really mess with it when shooting portraits, just about every other image I take is tripod mounted.

tried to go out and shoot sunrise this Saturday...the overnight storm that was supposed to pass through was a little slow moving...so it killed the color chances. So I went black and white, 4 30 second frames with the SR app.

IMAGE LINK: https://flic.kr/p/Sv4U​4K  (external link) Passing Through (external link) by Travis Rhoads (external link), on Flickr

funny sidenote about shooting Saturday morning...I got to my location, had the B25 on...and it wasn't wide enough. Put the B18 on and still felt like it was not very wide. I couldn't get much of these foreground rocks in the frame without backing up more...I was confused and getting a little frustrated...I took the camera off the tripod, and was fiddling around with a setting and noticed on the info screen that I was still on APS-C mode...having shot a function at school last week where I needed a little more "reach"...turned that off and all was better, but I got a good chuckle out of it.
