Sony FE Lens Size Comparison

©2016 CRAIG LITTEN

The Lineup

Sony FE 70-200 f4 G  •  Zeiss FE 35mm f1.4  •  Zeiss Batis 85mm f1.8  •  Zeiss Batis 25mm f2  •  Zeiss FE 55mm f1.8  •  Zeiss FE 35mm f2.8

 

The purpose of this post is to simply give an overall size comparison between six of the most common Sony and Zeiss FE lenses. Note that the last four lenses do not have native lens hoods on them, but smaller metal hoods that I supplemented for a much better fit into my camera bags, plus they are more compact while shooting. The alternate hoods protect just as well, in my opinion, but are not as deep so they may not be as good for protection against lens flair. Personally, I've never been bothered by flair, in fact I kind of like it, and it's a rare occurrence anyway because the Zeiss coatings are so good.

The Boys of Summer are Back

Rabid New York Mets fans push forward to get autographs during the first day of spring training on Friday, February 19, 2016 at Tradition Field in Port St. Lucie, Fla. Friday's practice was the largest crowd ever at Tradition Field for the Mets. The Mets are hoping to make it to the World Series again this year, but know that they have a target on their back and it won't be easy. I shot this assignment, covering the N.Y. Mets for two days, for the New York Times.

SCREENSHOTS

The above photo is the second in a new blog series that continues today called "SCREENSHOTS." The random series will feature a photo that I’m currently working on in Photoshop, or something else currently on my screen, shot directly off of my computer screen. It’s kind of a document or memorial of the evolution of my daily work and desktop with all of it’s mess and chaos. The idea camera from a photographer named Mel DiGiacomo (good luck trying to pronounce it), who has done some inspiring presentations on the B&H Photo YouTube channel.


Other blog series that I feature from time to time are:

FROM THE ARCHIVES
This series is where I feature a photo shot in the past. Some photos are those that were formally published, some were shots that got overlooked from the original edit or were good enough but didn’t fit the particular job, etc. The key is that the featured photo is not recent one.

O-U-T-T-A-K-E-S
Outtakes are just that; photos that didn’t make the cut for various reasons. But I’ve found over the years that some of these shots have turned out to be great photos.

PHOTO OF THE DAY
This is my favorite photo of that particular day. Sometimes I shoot a lot, sometimes a little, but I always try to keep fresh and to keep shooting as often as possible.

PHOTO OF THE WEEK
This is simply my favorite photo of that week, and it usually posts on a Friday so that it’s the featured post all weekend.

CULTURE OF LEISURE
These shots are part of the progresson of a book project that I started on Memorial Day 2006, and have continued to shoot for the last nine years. These are always shot on or very near the beach, and were literally shot on every beach in Florida.

(for) THE JOY OF PHOTOGRAPHY
This is one series that I recently started on a November 20th blog post, and that I’m considering continuing. The content is wide open, and the criteria is simply for the joy of photographing and discovering with my camera when I’m not being paid to take pictures.

I feature lots of other posts too, which can vary in subject matter from A to Z. Please visit often for inspiration, education, of just to see a new photograph.
