My Sony A6300 became a lot more useful since I added the Meike battery grip, handles much better, especially for manual focusing, the only drawback, I do prefer to remove the card if I don’t shoot tethered rather then downloading the files via USB cable from the camera (too slow). That means I have to remove the grip every time, other then that I love it. I rediscovered the Helios 44-2, which I had laying around and completely forgot about it, this little lens produces lovely low contrast files wide open, tack sharp and if stopped down by only 1/2 a stop, the contrast increases dramatically. Quite like the low contrast look for portraits.
