Big Gs

White twins! The Sony 70-200mm F2.8G SSM on the Sony Alpha 700 with a VG-C70AM battery grip and HVL-F58AM flash attached… times two!

Not so twins – left, the Konica Minolta 17-35mm F2.8-4, right, the Konica Minolta 11-18mm F4.5-5.6 DT. Both are Tamron rebadges with Minolta’s secret sauce marinated in.

I used the KM 17-35mm at F2.8 and its closest focusing distance of 30cm, to get this!

You know what they say about big hands… (the Sony Carl Zeiss 135mm F1.8 is dwarfed!)

The cheapest G, the Sony 70-300mm F4.5-5.6G SSM.


(This idea was taken from a shot that Siddiq took.)

I used the Sony 70-200mm F2.8G SSM for this, shot at 70mm F2.8.

The Sony 70-200mm excels at bokeh – this is a shot at 200mm F2.8, cropped a bit.

The KM 17-35mm at 35mm does a respectable close-up – here’s the Konica Minolta Dynax 7 Digital, a great body of its time. On it is a classic Minolta 20mm F2.8 Original!

Signither with his Kabuto!
