      Hey jason!! You need to do a bokeh/portrait battle with the 85mm gm vs the 100mm gm and the 135mm gm.

      Will you review the Freewell Variable Nd filters for the camera?Also compare it to the Polarpro Variable ND filter? And peak design is coming out with the new backpacks. some one is showing it in this link

    How do you think this lens would do with vlogging on an a6400 since the lens and camera doesn’t have stabilization?! And would it be too heavy to use with the crane m2?!

    Hi Jason does the noise of the aperture blades is quite normal for this kind of lense? Thanks for replying.

    I have the 24GM, but if I already owned the batis 25mm I wouldn't buy the GM. The difference is minimal for most viewers.

    Hi jason,
    I need help.. I am thinking about getting the 24mm 1.4 GM but I also have the 16-35 2.8 it worth it to get it as an extra lens?
    I shoot landscape and portraits and would looks to shoot night sky..
    Is it better then the 16-35 2.8 gm at 24mm?
    Thank you....

  • Windy City Paranormal

    I enjoy watching your tutorials and updates. I recently bought the Sony a6400 primarily for shooting 4K and got the Sony 18-105 G/F4 lens. My question for you is with all the Sony products you test, what program do you run to edit and produce your videos? Thanks!

    Lol!!! Messy AF has nothing to do with your dope content. But it is quite funny. Just bought the lens and hasn’t come off my a7 iii since

    I have been slimming down gear. I have the 35mm F1.8 and 85mm F1.8 for primes (technically I have the 90mm Macro, but thats more for spring / wildflower season). Then I just have 16-25mm, 24-240mm and 100-400mm. My favorite focal length is 35mm... but I imagine if I did video it would be 24mm. What I really want to do is split the difference and buy a Leica Q2.

    It is my go-to lens 90-95% of the time. Perfect to record your life... complement it with the 55mm and you got the best camera setup everrrr

    Edit: Got the lens from my local Sony store at the end of January 2019 without waiting at all.. walked it and bought it immediately

    Nice video, although if I could offer any feedback it would be to tone down the "youtube personality" a bit (the exaggerated style of talking/presentation that youtube content creators feel is necessary). I remember when you only had 15k subscribers, which I think was only a couple years ago and like the style back then much more. Anyway, kudos for creating all the great content and congrats on the 165k subs! Oh, and yeah, the 24/1.4 GM is awesome and my go to lens nowadays.

    Now that you have the Sony 24mm GM, do you still need the Batis 18mm? I have the 24mm, and I saw your video at Fushimi Inari with the Batis and it was great. Could I get by with 24mm, or do you recommend to have a wider lens. The Batis 18mm is on sale now and the Samyang 18mm is super cheap

    The Sigma 16mm is 24mm equivalent on the a7III and that's what I use for my video right now. Would love a full frame lens for video though. This looks good!
