How can I easily and fast, change the aperture settings on a SONY fx6, using this lense?
Asked by: Per
The Sony FE 35mm f/1.8 Lens would require you to adjust the lens' aperture using the controls built onto the Sony FX3 Full-Frame Cinema Camera. The Online Instruction Manual on Sony's website for the Sony FX3 Full-Frame Cinema Camera States "1: MODE (Mode) button → use the control wheel to select [Aperture Priority] → press the center of the control wheel. 2: Select the desired value by turning the front/rear dial." It also states "1: MODE (Mode) button → [Manual Exposure] → press the center of the control wheel. 2: Select the desired aperture value by turning the front dial. Select the desired shutter speed by turning the rear dial. You can change the setting of the front/rear dial using MENU → (Setup) → [Dial Customize] → [Dial Setup]."

Would you recommend this for copywork of paintings? I'm getting a Sony a7RII and am not sure which macro lens to get. I'm coming from a 60mm Nikon that works well for my space.
Asked by: Thomas
I would not recommend this lens at all. It has terrible chromatic aberration and it is definitely it suited to macro work. Check out the reviews and you'll see. I returned mine after 1 day of use. Sony has several other 35mm options that are great. They are all a little pricey but you might also look at Sigma art series or Tamaron. If you need Macro go with the 90mm which is fantastic.
