The argument that sony doesn’t offer enough professional lenses for their full frame mirrorless system just vanished into thin air with the HUGE announcement of three seriously professional lenses (with serious professional prices to match).  These lenses are compatible with the Sony a7 series of cameras and the a6000 crop series cameras including the newly announced a6300.

The 24-70 f/2.8 and the 70-200 f/2.8 provide wedding photographers and event photographers with the two staple lenses. I expect these lenses to be sharp and extremely well built.   Along with the 85mm f/1.4 and the additional lens offerings like the Batis series Sony now has the lenses and the bodies to really start attracting professionals in numbers that should scare the pants of Canon and Nikon.  I am not saying this is all a perfect system – see my discussion of why I don’t love shooting with the Sony a7RII at weddings but this does make the entire system much more appealing. I’d love to hear your thoughts and don’t complain about the price- they are comparable to the Canon and Nikon offerings.

More about the newly announced A6300.

 #bison #snowface ~  Captured with the #Sony #a7rII and Canon 100-400 and heavily cropped because I follow the #YellowstonePledge :)
 In Yellowstone National Park the roads are paved with snow and go straight for miles. Yesterday was sweet, today was the sweetest! Captured here on our way to Hayden Valley - a #dreamyplace like no other. #YellowstonePledge ~  Captured with the #Sony #A7RII and Canon 24-105 lens
 Yesterday ended as epically as it began (see my earlier post?) As we made our way out of the park the setting sun lit up this line of trees and steam from geothermal activity - a single line of animal tracks lead the way to this scene. #iloveyellowstonenp #YellowstonePledge ~  Captured with the #Sony #A7RII and Canon 70-200 ️‍️ EXIF: Exactly the same as the morning shot posted earlier.
