weddings going to be put off by the dinky camera if anything
(lol) Im a professional that uses this lens for weddings and portraits on a A6000 series camera as a side job to my 8-5 job. Unfortunately clients have the idea about the look of your gear rather than its actual results. Ive been looked at and judged by guests at a weddings because i held my Sony A7 out at arms length to get a shot, which they are not use to. Im not saying i care about the colour of the lens (although i am OCD), but clients do.
what sort of 'event' is a pro going to be using this lens for? anyone daft enough to be fooled by colour would be fooled by a lens that sticks out anyway
Depends if you are using for hobby use or professional use ;) i wouldnt show up to any event with a black body and silver lens, no chance!
when the prices are the same then you may have a point but for 50quid .. nah ;)
