I rented a long lens from Lensrental.com to try out.
With Covid-19 making it hard to work as usual, a lens that would allow me to film at a distance made sense to have in my arsenal.
I am in the Sony universe and the FE70 to 300 lens was the glass I chose to experiment with.
The FE 70 to 300mm F4.5-5.6 with optical steady shot is a full frame lens that will allow me to get close to subjects during these crazy times at a reasonable price point.
Since I shoot on APS-C bodies, it will, effectively, give me a 105 to 450mm range.
The 72mm filter size allows me to use an variable filter that I already own.
I found that having this combination, while filming Scout climbing hills and sniffing out canyons was invaluable.
