The Rokinon 85mm f1.4 Aspherical on the Sony A7

My oldest son just got his first pair of glasses, and I figured it would be a great opportunity to do a little "studio" session. It's also a perfect opportunity to test out my Rokinon 85mm f1.4 on the A7. It's a bit of a generic looking portrait, but for what it is, I'm quite happy with the end result!

If anyone is interested, here's the lighting setup & equipment I used:

I used 2 Yongnuo speedlights. 1 in the umbrella & the other directly behind my son pointing backwards onto the back drop:

Triggered using these inexpensive Cowboy Studio wireless triggers:

An umbrella softbox at about a 45 degree angle on the right:

A silver reflector on the left:

And an old black fleece blanket for the backdrop. I've found that black fleece turns into a nice gray when lit with a speedlight.

Canon FD 55mm f1.2 SCC on the A7

The Sony A7 & Canon FD 55mm f1.2 SCC are a wonderful combination. It's too bad this lens is so heavy! The image quality is great, but the combination feels very unbalanced.


I've been itching to put the Samyang 14mm on the A7 to the test. A recent trip to Phoenix scratched that itch for me!

A7, Samyang 14mm, ISO 320, f5.6, 1/60s
