TCSTV: Sony FE 50mm f/1.2 GM + Wireless Microphone W2BT + Lavalier ECM-LV1 Review

TCSTV released their review of the Sony 50mm f/1.2 GM + W2BT. Below is a summary of their review:

Sony FE 50mm f/1.2 GM

  • The technology from Sony’s high-end telephoto lenses is being used to improve shorters lenses and the Sony 50mm f/1.2 GM is very good
  • Fast enough to be used for candid photography
  • The real-time tracking AF system is great even shooting at 10fps and the pupil is always in focus
  • Great bokeh that is very clean and circular with no weird patterns in it
  • Not very small but it is lighter than Canon or Nikon lenses coming in at 778g
  • Declicable aperture ring
  • 72mm filter threat and comes with a greaet hood
  • Very nice G Master quality and custom control buttons
  • Sony 50mm f/1.2 GM is fully weather-sealed
  • Optical performance is super sharp with a great surface coating
  • Great AF even on the edges of the frame
  • No flare even when the subject is heavily backlit
  • Smooth AF transitions for video
  • Focus breathing with this lens could limit its usefulness
  • Could be her favorite 50mm f/1.2 lens on the market right now since you sacrifice very little
  • This is the grown-up nifty 50

Wireless Microphone ECM-W2BT + Lavalier ECM-LV1

  • Just plug and play full digital interface with no cables to lose
  • A very automatic system so you cant adjust levels in the camera, but you can adjust the attenuator function on the unit
  • There is also a mix mode so someone behind the camera can say something
  • The Lavalier is in stereo and it is pretty big, but she prefers a smaller mic
  • The system takes a 3.5mm mic so you don’t have to use Sony’s Lavalier ECM-LV1
