APOLLO BY EMER O’DONNELL – SCULPTURE IN CONTEXT 2017
TODAY IS USED A SONY 35MM 1.4 LENS
NOTE THE DESCRIPTION BELOW DATES FROM 2017
Emer O’Donnell was born in Dublin Ireland. She is currently completing a BA in Fine Art (Hons) Ceramics and Glass in the National College of Art and Design. Emer uses the technique of graal to explore the properties of glass attempting to draw the eye beyond the surface … it is possible that this is what made it difficult for me to photograph her work.
Over the last two weeks I have used four different lenses to photograph the Sculpture In Context exhibition in the Botanic Gardens. Today it was the turn of the Sony 35mm 1.4 lens and in my opinion it proved to be the best of the four.
According to the majority reviewers the FE 35mm f1.4’s performance is excellent and ranks as the second best FE-mount lens [apparently the 55mm 1.8, which I also have, is considered to be the best] Sharpness and Transmission results are particularly strong. However, less expensive FE-mount zoom lenses that also cover 35mm are available and they might be a better option. A few reviewers claim that the inexpensive Zeiss 35mm f/2.8 FE is sharper has less distorted, is smaller and lighter. It’s a much better lens for most uses for less than half the price.
