a99 for professional Video
Oct 17, 2012

Hi everybody, I'm a videographer and I shoot mostly weddings, namely a situation where no error is allowed due to its uniqueness. This always took me apart from selling my camcorder to buy a video dslr, expecially for focusing/depth of field matter. Now I'm almost convinced by the fantastic AF features of the a99, but still I'm in doubt for a lens question: There's no SONY lens by the moment that could cover the entire focal range I need, say we the 28-300 range. The only FF lens in this range is the TAMRON which however has no silent AF motor, so my question are:

1) will every no HSM/SSD lens' AF noise be captured by a99 microphone (even an external mic)?

2) will every AF mode/feature work with non-SONY lenses?

3) am I missing any other solution?

thank you in advance

Sony SLT-A99
