Out and About with a 100mm Lens

25 Oct 2020 10:39AM   Views : 431 Unique : 296

I've done quite a few reviews of lenses for ePHOTOzine so I've decided to have a second look at some, not to much from the point of view of testing or commenting on the lens again but more from the point of view of processing some of the images and enjoying what the type of lens has to offer. When the reviews are done the image samples are unprocessed, the idea being that the reader can download them and have a play in their own favourite program. Now I'm going to do my versions of images from a few lenses. This does not mean that I am selecting favourite lenses, but I might be selecting favourite focal lengths.

First up is the 100mm lens, which has always been a favourite of mine. I feel the 135mm is a bit too long for a short telephoto and the 85mm a bit too short, although 85mm lenses are in general much faster and have their own advantages. This lens is the Sony FE 100mm f/2.8 STF GM OSS used with the Sony A7R II. Clearly, it spoke to me Flowers and Plants! It also is a great focal length for portraits and landscapes, but for today this is what I pulled out of the sample images that I shot for the review, processed afresh using Photoshop CC.
