In Topic: Sony Releases Full-Frame FE 50mm F2.8 Macro Lens

31 August 2016 - 06:19 AM

I expect this lens would be attractive to those shooting Sony APS-C cameras like the new Sony A6300 at half the cost of the Zeiss Touit 50 mm F/2.8. Also as a fish portrait lens for Sony A7 series full frame shooters. 

In Topic: Sigma MC11 + Sigma 10mm fisheye = on Sony A6000... Your opinion plz ?

MC-11 and the fisheye are not compatible on the APS-C or FF Sony cameras.

The best suggestion I can give you regarding install of the port is to grease the port threads as well as the O-ring and remove often. I find that the biggest problem with battery power comes when using the 90mm macro. I am getting longer battery life with my wide lenses which include the Canon 8-15 Fisheye zoom and the Zeiss 18mm F/2.8.

Try mounting the extension to the housing then mount the lens to the camera from the front of the housing, then mount the port over the lens onto the extension and reposition the port shade so it will not vignette.

You can look at these and be the judge. I may shoot the lens in a few days with the Zen 200mm dome to see how it looks. Cant get this close with that dome. Most of these shots are very close to the subject. This is also I believe the only full frame system where you can shoot the 8-15 zoom with a 100mm port.


From todays dives using the Canon 8-15mm Fisheye zoom, at the 15mm full frame end and the 8mm circular fisheye ends of the lens.

Nauticam Housing, Sony A7R II, Canon 8-15mm Fisheye zoom, Metabones adapter, Zen Underwater 100mm port, two Inon Z-240 strobes.
