  1. Thank you for your perspective on FF lenses and APSC bodies. You are a wonderful rarity among photo channels because most are devoted to FF bodies and treat APSC as a passing thought. For those of us who are dedicated APSC users (carefully waving my a6500 in the air to you), your testing, feedback, and efforts are a perfect way for me to determine what to get. Thanks again!

  2. Love how chuncky and well built it looks, but yeah I guess the price tag is really off since we can get an AF Sigma for less 😅

  3. hi, i just found your channel and immediately subscribe. I need your suggestion as I'm planning to buy a mirrorless mostly for footage video and selfie. Hence, I think I need to have external mic and flip up/side screen on it. Would you recommend any for budget below $1000

  4. Will you be reviewing and comparing the Tamron 28-75 anytime? I can't find a proper APS-C centered review and I'm looking for a fast and versatile kit lens replacement.

  5. The Viltrox 20mm f/1.8 isn't very affordable. In eBay its price is around 400€. The different lens hood is made only for attaching the filter. Without the extra special lens hood the front element is very bulbous and doesn't permit a filter.
    I am very interested to buy the brighter autofocus and much more expensive full frame Sigma 20mm f/1.4 FE e-mount. But I may change my mind.
    Very bright full frame manual focus lenses are nearly always much more expensive than similar bright APS-C manual focus lenses. The APS-C sensor has the 40% area of the full frame sensor. It demands a smaller image circle and that permits smaller lenses and less expensive high quality optical glass.
    One of the advantages of Sony e-mount cameras is the ability to use the same e-mount lens on bigger full frame e-mount cameras or smaller APS e-mount cameras.
    That can't happen with Canon or Nikon full frame cameras.
    However on the L mount mirrorless cameras can be used both full frame L mount lenses and APS-C L mount lenses.
    Only Leica offers both APS-C and full frame L mount lenses for its mirrorless APS-C and full frame L mount cameras. These lenses are very very expensive because of course they are real Leica lenses.
    Panasonic until now has only full frame L mount lenses for its full frame L mount mirrorless cameras but Leica APS-C L mount lenses are compatible. Sigma is part of the L mount alliance with Leica and Panasonic and is rumored that it will convert many of its APS-C or full frame lenses to L mount.

    Until now in practice only Sony has the advantage of the same mount on both APS-C and Full frame mirrorless cameras.

  6. The reason people complain about testing FF lens on APS-C camera is not because it will give poor results but because almost always you'll find better options designed specifically for crop sensor. Why buy expensive 16-35/4 lens if you can get much cheaper 10-18/4? Why buy Sony GM 24/1.4 when you can buy Sigma 16/1.4? When you have APS-C camera in most cases it simply doesn't make any sense – FF lenses are heavier, bulkier and more expensive. When you own FF camera, buying Sigma 16/1.4 is not an option (unless you're ok with heavy vignetting) – you have to pay premium for a lens like this Viltrox 20/1.8 and at the same time you gain that extra something in the pictures.

    Love your channel btw, congratulations on 100k subscribers!

  7. I already thought this video was shot with the A6400 as the colours are different, less blue casts than on the other videos.

  8. Too expensive for a manual focus lens and it is only a 30mm lens on the A6000 series. I'll stick with my Sigma 16. Your videos are always great though!

  9. This kind of glass is squarely aimed at professional videographers who need complete manual control on aperture and focus and use full frame E mount cameras. They don't car about weight and bulk… Possibly for professionnal photographs with same needs, but would then use the 42 MP A7R series. It really makes no sense on an APSC camera, even if, granted, it is possible. Also, "ASPH" are not initials and does not need to be spelled as 4 individual letters. It's short for "aspherical" as you certainly know.

  10. There is a lot of truth to test FF lenses on FF cameras, that’s like what those lenses were made for. It’s a waste of money to buy FF lenses for your cropped sensor camera, I just don’t see the point. It’s like testing racing tires on your Kia, yes it will work but why, no reason and a waste of money.
