I want to buy a Sony A7R4 because of the lens options. But I keep reading that the narrow lens mount causes more image noise because of the steeper exit angles. Should I buy a Nikon Z7II instead?

dunno man, seems like a close call

This only really causes problems with certain adapted lenses, like Leica M wides that have a rear element that sits really close to the focal plane
>>

Use your brain for literally 5 seconds and ponder how the fuck a lens mount would create more noise. That's just literally not how it works.

That said, the a7R IV has decently high noise because it's an incredibly high resolution sensor. You want less noise? Go R3 or A1, or S3.

The Sony lens mount isn't large enough for f0.7 lenses, go find some f0.7 lenses you like and report back if there's any issues.

This has nothing to do with the mount size, and everything to do with those lenses being designed for film, all digital cameras have issues with lenses with rear elements too close to the sensor with too wide a lens, when using lenses not designed for digital.

Let's simplify this even more: go find some f/0.7 lenses you like. idgaf what mount it's for, go show me a *good* f/0.7 lens, made by anybody.
>>
Give me a reason to buy the f/1.4 over the standard f/1.8 50mm other than build quality

After all the research I've done I just don't think the extra bit of aperture size is worth triple the price and I couldn't care less about the 1.8 being made of plastic but what's your guys opinion

>Don't care about speed or optical properties
>Don't care about build quality
Why ask then? the 1.8 is also smaller so buy away

How do you decide what / where to photograph? I’ve barely ever been taking pictures anymore. If theres some kind of event im going to ill take my camera and still sometimes will do some abstract stuff (usually macro) if i see something that gives me a good idea but i never go out specifically to get photos anymore and that feels like a shame.
>>
What kind of ISO settings do you use? Do you always set it manually, do you keep it at like 100 and only raise it if you must, do you keep it on auto (if so what max iso do you have specified)?
>>
>>3940014
Depends on what kind of pictures i want to shoot. If i want to shoot long exposure, i will use iso 100. If i want to shoot fast subject, i will increase the iso
>>
>>3940020
So you typically are manually adjusting it along with the other settings? I generally don’t notice much graininess up to around 20000 iso for my body so i typically just leave it on auto with the limit around there
>>
>>3940012
If it feels like a chore then you won’t do it. What do you like taking pictures of? I like taking pictures of plants, mushrooms, and cats while on walks. And I like taking pictures of my friends. It should have some direct benefit to your own enjoyment and mental well-being.
>>
>>3940014
im rocking the a7ii and set ISO auto to 100/6400. Works well in dynamic situations.
>>
>>3940001
The EF 50mm rendering is fucking gross, that should be reason enough. And once you take transmission of the 2 lenses into account, the f1.4 is just shy of a whole stop faster, allowing you to shoot and focus in half as much light. You'll regret not just getting the 1.4 in the 1st place.
>>
>>3940014
I use auto if I'm in decent to good light. min 100, max 25600, standard auto iso min shutter speed
>>
>>3939842
this is sure to be a productive discussion

I will Travel to south America and i know that robbery IS a common thing there. So i dont want to take my 5k camera setup, and it's too old for having a décent insurrance. So i thinking to go with my smartphone, a osmo and smartphone lens. My question : Smartphone lens are really bullshits ? Because i want to buy some for my Travel i have like a 200 $ budget. Do you know good ones ?
>>
>>3940023
I am using aperture priority, so i only control aperture and iso
