Very reluctant and unhappy model. Something about her hair being a mess...
I said I was experimenting with my flash, remote trigger, umbrella, stand and it was just an "experiment". Which it really was as I've decided to refocus on off camera flash portraits. The time away was just enough to almost forget all the flash and trigger settings. Shot at f/4, ISO 50, 1/200 sec.

Large high-speed primes such as the 85mm F1.4 G Master are nice to have, but they are pricey, large, and sometimes intimidating. When it comes to moderate-speed lenses, it sometimes seems that manufacturers put price before outright optical performance. That’s not the case here. While not exactly cheap, the Sony FE 85mm F1.8 costs less than its premium G Master sibling or even the rival Zeiss Batis 85mm F1.8, yet it has a real nice balance of performance, with excellent sharpness and low lateral color and distortion. Apart from a little vignetting, with its unobtrusive size and low weight, this new lens looks to be an excellent alternative for all the right reasons.
Never thought I would need this but at $548 on sale, why not? There are times 135mm is a bit long for close quarter. Much lighter, compact, native mount for quick AF.
AF motor specs is great and it is. Very very quiet. Is it worth it? Sure is.
Arrived yesterday and out for a spin today mounted on a7m2.
