    Let's just start by saying that I'm Pentax user, so not affilitations to Sony. I was quite pleased with your reviews in the past and video courses related to different technicques, however, It seems, at least to me, that your reviews are quite biased against Sony. It is little bit strange that your review of Sport Camera is based on taking photos of Pride Parade participants. Not a single photo of any sport - not counting few guys "playing" recreational tennis. Watching reviews from well known and respected Sports photographers, camera is praised for autofocus, speed, DR.....and quite different conclusions than yours. Not sure what is going on, but kind of loosing credibility with such reviews. Again, no intention to troll or be rude, just my observation.

Best Portrait lens? 85mm vs 105mm vs 70-200mm

Best Portrait lens? 85mm vs 105mm vs 70-200mm

What should you buy? Which is best for portraiture? If you own a 70-200mm, is it worth getting an 85mm or 105mm f1.4 prime? Is there much difference in BOKEH?

In terms of maximum aperture to focal length - nothing beats the 600mm f4. And this new FL E variant from Nikkor is simply amazing for bird and wildlife photography.
