Canon 70-210mm f3.5-4.5 USM test

This was a late night testing the Canon 70-210mm f3.5-4.5 just to see how it does for videos on my Sony A7s with a Commlite adapter. The 70-210mm f3.5-4.5 is quite affordable option if you cannot afford the Canon 70-200mm f4 L as you can find it for around 100bucks or even less second hand.

To find this lens 2nd hand on Ebay please follow this link:

Personally I do like how it renders blurry backgrounds and does have a certain filmic look. But one thing is filming at 210mm you really need quite a distance between you and the subject, but this lens does not have any stabilisation and probably be nicer to use on the markii series of the A7 cams, as these were filmed on a monopod but still hard to hold it steady while filming at 210mm, otherwise a tripod is really required. Macro wise using on a full frame its not that extreme, but on APSC crop mode it does help more getting the image closer for a macro. Overal do like the looks of shots and do feel its more filmic then a 50mm f1.8 with it looks, but its not so great but wide shots indoors but usable for macro shots, but do need a tripod instead of a monopod to make it easier to use and lessening the shake and drift.
