  1. The #FE 14mm F1.8 GM (SEL14F18GM) is NOT discontinued, it's just showing as out of stock kin the Sony store at the moment.
  2. The #FE 12-24mm F2.8 GM has been at or near the top of my list since it came out. I find that I do a lot of my shooting within that range and the 12-24 GM is just so good. The 12-24 GM will complete my version of the zoom trinity: 12-24 GM, #FE 24-105mm F4 G OSS and the #FE 100-400mm F4.5-5.6 GM OSS .
  3. This is a great question. I'm not sure it's an either/or scenario. I have an #Alpha 6400 (a6400) and a #ZV-1 setup for livestreaming. I like that the Alpha 6400 (which I have set up at an angle to my computer) allows for interchangeable lenses (mine has a #Vario-Tessar T* FE 16-35mm F4 ZA OSS on it most of the time) and the ZV-1 is set up for head on. I run both through a capture card which has been very stable. I feel like this setup gives me a lot of versatility. A #ZV-E10 in place of the Alpha 6400 would also be a great solution, but since you already have the Alpha 6400 (like I did), you could keep it and add a ZV-1 and a lens or 2 to expand your setup'd versatility. Of course it depends on exactly what you're doing. You might also have a look at this video with Terry Warfield. ( He talks about gear like the ZV-E10 as well as some of his top vlogging tips.
  4. This is a great topic and we thought we might explore it more on Have a look:
  5. That 100mm is one of the great sleeper lenses of all time IMO. Truly unique, super sharp and with the STF it creates bokeh like no other.
  6. The #FE 24-105mm F4 G OSS is on my camera 75% of the time as it is and I'm very comfortable working with that lens in just about any situation. That said, if forced to just use a single lens for a year, I might go with the #FE 24mm F1.4 GM . I think it would train me to get closer to the subjects and also force me to get creative and literally "see" in that perspective.
  7. Drew Geraci did this video on some portrait lighting techniques.
  8. I prefer using the back button instead of the half-press on the shutter button to activate AF. It's more intuitive for me and I like having the shutter button dedicated to just one thing, tripping the shutter.
  9. Great. This is exactly what I'm looking for. Thanks for the great feedback.
  10. Glenn has some great tips and resources in his reply. Definitely have a look at Stan Moniz's article on the 500 Rule ( It will get you making sharp astro images right out of the gate. Personally, I bought the 24mm f/1.4 GM when it came out specifically for astro.
  11. For ll the vloggers, I'm working up some content on vlogging and I'd like to learn about your preferred setups. I'm interested in your camera, favorite lens or lenses and any other essentials you use. Thanks.
