Recommended Posts

FE PZ 16-35mm f/4 G - landscape, environmental portraits, family events

FE 24-105mm f/4 G OSS - travel, street, landscape

FE 50mm f/1.2 GM - low light situations, but otherwise I use my zoom lenses

FE 70-200 mm f/2.8 GM OSS II - my favourite for daily walks in nature. I carry the 2.0X teleconverter in case I need more reach for distant wildlife or candid shots

FE 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 OSS - wildlife, especially birds in flight

Before switching to Sony I had all Canon gear, I still have a ton of their lenses and an adaptor to use them with my Sony body. I did purchase a Sony 55mm lens and I use that 90% of the time, the focus is crazy good and my other lenses are so soft and unreliable. I really should see if I can sell them off or trade them for more Sony lenses!

You should follow with the question: How many of those lenses do you actually use? (more than twice a year) 😇

I’m assuming you used the 600 f/4 in Svalbard. How far was too far the subject with this lens? Did you add a teleconverter?

Yes, I used the 600 f/4 in Svalbard. I wish I brought my range finder so I could make a better estimate. but I think anything greater than 600-1000 meters is too far especially from a moving boat. I did have a 2x TC but stopped using it because I felt it was too much of a challenge to get a stable shot while the boat was bobbing at that magnification. If I had a tripod and was on solid ground, I could've probably reached farther and still maintain decent sharpness.

Makes sense. Thanks.
