I’ve raved about the Rokinon 85mm f/1.4 lens that I purchased for a song a little while ago. I’d been using it with my Sony A77ii and was quite pleased with the results. I decided to try it on my new A99ii.
What a difference the 42 megapixels does! Suddenly, I was discovering green and purple fringing that was all but invisible on the 24Mp APS-C sensor. It’s still a great lens, mind you. It’s cheap and does a good job for portraits. But now I have to make corrections if I crop my pictures.
It just confirms that I have a real beast in my hands with the A99ii. It’s a fantastic camera. But, you have to put the right glass on it with adequate resolving power to get the best results.
It’s been a fun discovery, and it’s pushing my photography to new heights. I hope everyone can have just as much fun.
