HELLLOOOOO E MOUNT! (again)
10 months ago

After a year of not having my NEX 5R, I now have A7 + FE55 in hand!

I guess I am back to the small (dark) side?

What kind of accessories do I need?

EDIT: I just noticed my post count: 666

My number one accessory recommendation is "time" and lots of it for all those new photos you are going to be taking with this great new combo. Enjoy!

A spare battery is always useful. A battery charger.

You probably already have a tripod.

Otherwise -- nothing.

Should I buy B+W UV filter?

since this guy does not come with a hood, I think it would be a wise investment...

THOUGHTS?

My FE 55 came with a half-metal hood.  Did you get yours second hand or something?

P.S. I actually have 4/6 of the items on Henry's list... eek!

Isn't there a contents list on the box that the lens came in?

Could you tell us if fast hybrid Phase Detection will install and work with the 55 FE lens? (It's supposed to work with the A7 OK, but we don't know about the 5R/ 5T/6 models.)

Sorry, my mistake. You got the A7.

Can you please confirm that the A7 and the FE55 will do hybrid phase detection?

Thank you.

Steve

Make that at least 2 spare batteries, and a car charger LOL

My wife unboxed it, guess she missed the hood but we did get one!

Ordered the 35 FE also

Looking forward to getting the 70-200 and 24-70, need to shed some weight from my SLRs
