  • Replied in A7 II
    Actually the system Sony is launching (FF mirrorless) is the future, it's just that at the moment the lens situation is just ridicolous. -- Alfred
  • Replied in A7 II
    It's high quality (optically) and equivalent to a 24-120 FF lens, which is not available for the A7. Or what point are you trying to make? -- Alfred
  • Replied in A7 II
    Not wide enough -- Alfred
  • Replied in A7 II
    In the APS-C world, the CZ16-80, which has more zoom range than the 24-70, costs around 600 Euro and is an optically excellent lens. -- Alfred
  • Replied in A7 II
    Ok, but can't they make lenses with smaller apertures, so that they are not so big and heavy? -- Alfred
  • Replied in A7 II
    Now you are just arguing for the sake of arguing..... trolling in other words.
  • Replied in A7 II
    Interesting. Didn't know you could use the 10-18 on the A7. But look here: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/52634956 1. Below 12mm there is heavy vignetting. 2. And in any case the geometric ...
  • Replied in A7 II
    You have no ultra-wideangle lens or tele lens for wildlife. I currently have an A65 with 8-16, 35, 16-80 and 70-300mm lenses (12-450mm in FF equivalence) and would like to have the same range of ...
  • Replied in A7 II
    Well, according to this roadmap: http://www.ephotozine.com/article/sony-lens-roadmap-2015-plus-new-fe-full-frame-lenses-26187 Sony are not that aggressive in releasing new lenses. Alnd look where ...
  • Replied in A7 II
    Sony has discontinued that lens, i.e. you can't buy it anymore.

  • Replied in A7 II
    Very tempted to just grab an A7 II, but I guess I'll wait until a suitable allround lens (24-120 or similar) is available. Or perhaps (who knows) this planned 24-240 is not too terrible optically ...
  • Replied in A7 II
    The CZ16-80, Sigma 8-16, and Sony 35/1.8 are all APS-C lenses (smaller image circle) which won't work on a FF camera. Only the 70-300 G SSM is also for FF cameras. -- Alfred
  • Replied in A7 II
    Sony could launch *one* not too expensive, high quality, light weight 24-120 lens. No need for OIS, no need for large apertures (4.5-5.6 or even smaller would suffice). Then all problems would be ...
  • Created discussions A7 II
    Nice body, but the lenses are a joke: http://store.sony.com/full-frame-e-mount-lenses/cat-27-catid-All-Full-Frame-E-Mount-Lenses $1200 for the 24-70, $2500 for the 28-135 The 28-135 is at the ...
  • I believe I tried that a while ago, but it didn't help. The flash hotshoe contacts get oxidated quite frequently and cleaning those helps. -- Alfred
  • Maybe a bit complicated to send a lens to the other end of the world ;-)
  • Some internal lose contact. Sometimes the AF works fine, sometimes it's dead. When I shake the lens a bit I can hear some lose part inside. My guess is perhaps some small screw inside got ...
  • The other lenses are working fine. But I had to replace one CZ16-80 a year ago because of a defective autofocus (rapairing it would have cost over 500 Euro). Sony lenses may be good optically, but ...
  • My Sony 70-300G SSM has a defective autofocus. I could send it in for repairs, but the bill could easily be 200 Euro or more. On the other hand, for 300 Euro I could buy a new Tamron 70-300 Di USD ...
