I agree the dynamic range is awesome… .. Good honest review Julia…

Photo-Me-Ike says:

Well done Julia! I always find it interesting how Canon users are so impressed with the Dynamic Range on the Sonys because it’s always been a thing on Nikons

Umit Pala says:

I just own A7 iii, I must say dynamic range is incredible. When you first time look at your Raw files you will see blown out brights.
start processing them in LR, then voila! you cant believe your eyes ! shadows and brights are completely recovered 🙂
And about adapted lenses: I am using MC11 with canon zooms and sometimes it hunts continuously. no need to be backlit condition, it just hunts. In my opinion, if you dont use canon or nikon bodies sell your lenses and buy native sony, so you will not be disappointed

Jeff Blosser says:

Beautiful pics! I have one Canon lens left in my kit, the 70-200 2.8 and I am using the Sigma MC-11. I wonder if you would have better luck with the mc-11 paired with your 50mm, that thing is so sharp I may never replace it with native glass.. On another note, wait until you shoot with the 16-35 G master, yes it’s 2.8, but I am telling you I can do Astrophotography and then shoot a portrait at 35mm and it’s tac sharp all the way through.. I don’t make money shooting yet, but I am still glad I spent the $2600.00, it hurt for a min but WOW. Also the Zeiss 55 1.8, that is not a very expensive lens, but that is honestly the sharpest glass I have ever owned, it’s also lite and fits the A7III perfectly. Thank you again for all of your video’s and your relaxing voice, you have taught me a lot! @jeffreyblosser

Daniel Castillo says:

Hi Julia, do you prefer use the 85mm 1.2 over the 1.4 version?

Bilal Izaddin says:

For dynamic range you are comparing 2012 to 2018 gear see Dustin Abbot comparison with 5dm4, Sony a73 is awesome but the glasses are expensive, and the sensor got dust after using it for a month in wedding unlike my canon which is very good in that regard , For the size I agree with you it is small but when attach good lenses even the native lenses it becomes large because of FF sensor , this is why I love my fuji with awesome fast small prime lenses

Josh R says:

The talk about the mc11 is true. I’ve swapped from the MB to the mc-11 and have far less issues with canon lenses. Sometime I have to change from Flexi spot small to Flexi spot medium for my Canon 135. Maybe try that first but if its still an issue with the 50mm get the mc11!

Petru B. says:

can’t you just expose for the highlights instead of blowing them out?
you can use the highlights priority mode, or zebra 100, or check the histogram
no excuses now
recovering highlights is not a skill or a reason to buy a certain camera

Remington Little says:

Would love to see the tutorial on how to remove sunflares!

Joseph Peppard says:

Also don’t you find that you shoot differently with a mirrorless camera vs. a DSLR? Having a great EVF and using the LCD when shooting is liberating.

Ian Jack says:

It is so refreshing to hear a balanced view from a real photographer. Do you find you are using your Canon 5D mk3 less and less now or is there still a place for it?

Justin Estanislao says:

Would definitely appreciate a Photoshop tutorial on removing sun flares! It would be so much help. Thank you!

Enriko Mulawarman says:

Mc11 might help with cannon lens

B SAF1993 says:

canon is so better in rendering skin tones than sony

Sebastian Kvasnak says:

You should try native Sony 85mm 1.8

Kylie Knight says:

Awesome video Julia 🙂 I’m also a Canon Shooter from the very beginning and have just purchased my 1st Sony a7 III the other day to use for weddings and portrait work. I can’t wait to give it a real go soon. Just been shooting test stuff atm. I am also using an adapter, the Sigma Mc 11 and so far I’m impressed too with the colours and fast focusing. Keep up the great content hun 🙂

Zigmārs Romanovskis says:

I shot for flear, if you shot agenst sun and den corect fler in ps, thats not stayl, thats stupidity….

David Aelbrecht says:

So you gonna swap from Canon to Sony ?

boostftw123 says:

I think if you started shooting with native sony lens you’d get rid of that 5D asap.

Joseph Peppard says:

Hi Julia, thanks for another educational and interesting video. I have recently been adding Sony lenses to my camera gear to improve autofocus performance. I love the Sony 24-105 f/4 lens for travel, the Sony 85mm f/1.8 lens for portraits and the Sony/Zeiss 55mm f/1.8 lens for general/ everyday type photography. I’ve found the Sony and Zeiss lenses compare favorably to my Canon lenses in terms of color rendition, resolution and micro contrast. I also like the color rendition and dynamic range of my Sony a9. It seems Sony has definitely improved their color science. I love my Canon cameras and lenses but surprisingly I find I’m using my Sony camera more each day. Take care and happy shooting.

Jigme Tsering says:

So im using my 50mm 1.4 on a MC-11 for my sonya7r2 and i notice that everytime i take a picture, i loose the bokeh. Could it be a compatibility issue or maybe firmware update? Open to all, Thanks for the help!

Ümpf Design says:

Also interested in what picture profile you’re using! Great video thanks for keeping the content coming.

Ali Khawar says:

Am I the only one observing that these days more and more photographers are using extremely petite models with innocent baby faces who can totally pass for an 11 or 12 year old? Or is that really the case?

Caleb Bornman says:

Definitely check out the Sony 85mm 1.8! Such a good lens and not that expensive

kevin dudley says:

your reviews of the sony have been extremely helpful. thank you Julia. i have a sony a6300 and i’ve been trying to decide what will be my next camera, so these vids have been very informative. thanx again and keep the vlogs, reviews and tutorials coming!
