Sony Alpha 7R mkiv and the Sony FE 200-600mm lens part 2 Featured

Sony – Dunstable Downs 8th March 2020

Found myself at Dunstable Downs to put the Sony FE 200-600mm lens through its paces on a Sony Alpha 7R mkiv. Weather was changing all the time. Raining, Sunny, Stormy. I’m looking at purchasing this lens and the camera so I wanted to put it through its paces.

First thing i found is the lens is very comfortable to be hand held. Which is perfect as I wanted to capture images without being too obvious. Dunstable Downs is big place and the views are amazing. When I have photographed up here before with a smaller lens you will struggle to capture well what you see. Probably need to crop in a lot which will have effect on the quality of the image. The shot above is simple view and on a 600mm lens becomes very accessible.

The Dunstable Downs is a busy place. Dog Walking, Cycling Flying Kites, Gliders and Planes. Perfect opportunity to test the lens. The tracking was pretty much spot on. Tracking the plane and the glider was very easy and shooting into the sun amongst the clouds was not an issue. Using this lens really does open the opportunity of capturing images you probably would of thought about taking.

Sony Mirrorless – 6th March 2020

Thanks to Sony and the team I was invited during October 2019 to test the new Sony Alpha 9 mkii in Turkey at the Gloria Serenity Resort photographing Olympic athletes training. The conditions were perfect and I was blown away with the quality.

I have been with Canon for many years and now looking to switch over to the Sony mirrorless system. This will be a game changer for me.

Here are a few images from the Turkey trip October 2019

I have currently on test the Sony Alpha 7 mkiv with the 200m-600m lens and the 100m-400m lens. I will be posting images later.
