Hey guys, today I’m going to share with you three Sony lenses that cover all of my video needs first of all. I currently only use Sony lenses and that’s because I need fast reliable autofocus most of my shots are done on a gimbal.

Where I can’t manually focus my lens, so I need quick reliable autofocus to lock onto my subject. Now, there are other third-party manufacturers such as Sigma which produce good quality lenses but because they’re not native Sony lenses the autofocus isn’t as fast all three lenses that I’m going to share with you today are aps-c format lenses they all have optical steadyshot which is also known as image stabilization they all have a constant aperture so that means once you set your aperture in camera when you zoom with that lens that aperture will stay the same and you will not lose any light as you zoom further and lastly they all have a good balance between price and quality

Since the Sony a6500 is a crop sensor camera all images are magnified 1.5 times so the first lens I need is a
nice wide angle lens and I’ve selected the sony 10-18mm lens f/4 now taking into account the crop factor or the magnification of the Sony a6500 this lens will give me an equivalent focal length of 15mm which is still really wide all the way up to 27mm I use this lens mainly for landscape shots and also when I’m indoors when I’m in some
really tight quarters now there’s a couple of downsides to this lens first of all it’s a wide-angle lens and it also has a maximum aperture of only f/4 so as a result it’s really hard to blur out the background and get a nice
shallow depth of field and also as a result this lens doesn’t perform that well in low-light situation so the next lens I need and the next lens I have is the Sony 35mm lens f/1.8 this lens performs really well in low-light
situations and because it has a maximum aperture of f/1.8 I can get some really nice shallow depth of field shots there are seven aperture blades and that gives you some very pleasing bokeh and lastly when you throw this on the sony a6000 it gives you an equivalent focal length of about 50mm and that’s very pleasing to the human eye so both of these lenses that I have discussed so far the wide-angle lens and also this 35mm f/1.8 they have really fast reliable autofocus and that’s just what I need so so far I’ve covered why the angle and I have covered shallow depth of field and low-light now the last lens I need to complete my trifecta is a nice telephoto or zoom lens to allow me to get some shots when I just can’t get that close to my subject so the last lens I have selected to complete my trifecta is the Sony 18-105 f/4 lens now when you throw this onto the Sony a6500 also taking into account the crop factor again it gives you an equivalent focal length of about 27mm to a maximum focal length of about 160mm and that’s still pretty good zoom one cool feature about this zoom lens is it has this zoom switch where you can smoothly zoom in and out from your subject instead of using the zoom ring this lens will also produce some nice bokeh because it has seven aperture blades just like the 35mm lens and when you shoot at longer focal lengths such as 160mm you can get some nice shallow depth of field and autofocus is also good with this lens
too now when combining the prices of all three of these lenses they’re valued at around $1,800 and that’s the price of one really good sony g master lens now I feel like what this trifecta I have assembled we have a good balance between price and also quality for all three of these lenses and you also have a lens to shoot every single situation you’ll need on your job if you would like to check out any of these lenses or if you would like to add
one of these to your own collection
