  • Those are some great tips, observations and examples from LeicaBoss. Here are some more points: 1. Shoot RAW. You can recover shadow details much better with lower noise in those areas. With JPEGs, ...
  • My suggestion would be to get the A7 and the 55mm lens. Its tack sharp and the price is lower. But it largely depends on your needs. I had the experience of using the A99 with the 24-70 lens and I ...
  • I am not convinced yet, but I saw some video reviews which seemed to look pretty good. Also Sony is releasing Fast Hybrid AF in the next firmware update for the A7/r so I am waiting to see how that ...
  • I do not see a lot of noise in this photo and yes there will be that level of "noise" at ISO 160 with the A77 because of its pixel density. Some users here shoot at 12MP JPEG to avoid it. Remember ...
  • I like how the E mount cameras are so portable and can add fast PDAF with the SLT adapters when needed and still be far less bulky. I doubt if the successor in the A mount will be SLT but its a ...
  • Hey nice you know you lived in Pune. Bangalore and Pune are very similar weather wise. Its sad that some cool names like Madras and Bangalore have been changed to something that sounds like from a ...
  • Well, do you think that a few years ago you could get a camera like the A7 or Canon 6D for around $1500? I think there have been substantial improvements in sensor IQ recently. The quality of ...
  • This is in Pune (Maharashtra). Pune used to be a much greener place a decade ago...slowly the natural beauty is dying. They are building some bird sanctuaries and parks but its the concrete jungle ...
  • Nice catch Anand. Kingfishers are indeed hard to find (yet to see one in US yet). I was on a trip to India last year and had my A500 and SAL70300G. As I stepped out of the house early morning, I ...
  • Read this for a comparison I had posted some time back Note the A7r is better than the A7 in some areas (MP, IQ etc) but worse in some areas (lacks hybrid AF, no EFC, etc)
  • Good points. Both E and A mount cameras have their own merits and I had highlighted it in other threads. Your point about the A77 replacement is spot on, I think it was close to this price at ...

    Yes agree with you. But the price drop was not only on the A7/r, the A99 was also discounted by $1000 last week :D Also if the light leak issue is really a big one, a company like Sony would ...

    Absolutely exciting. It also looks like Sony is concentrating on the E mounts a lot more. They even announced at Sony Alpha Rumors about new FF cameras coming in fall. I am thinking of getting the ...

    I think what you are referring to is only caused at very high ISO (128,000) and that too only in some cameras when you shine a bright light source on it. I don't shine flashlights on my camera ...
  • Congratulations on your first post as well as the A700. You have done your research well and got yourself a great camera. Enjoy using it and do share your pics!

    Here are some of the kit lens shots for your reference The AF is much better than people think it is (but is slower than an A mount in dim light). With the LA-EA4 adapter and A mount lenses its ...

    Coming from an A mount, I jumped to the FF E mount a few months ago. I paid $2000 for a Sony A7 + FE 28-70mm so this does look like a great deal. But I am still going to see what Sony has in store ...
  • LOL. The IQ of the A7 is far better than the A77 and beats the A99 as well in most areas. The A7r is even better. You can see for your own here: http://www.dxomark.com/Cameras/Compare/Side-by-side/ ...
  • Nice captures, I especially like the goat and the Macaws. For the whistling duck photo your shutter speed was too low (100) which is why you see subject blur/camera shake. For the meerkat photo ...
  • I have been shooting ONLY Sony so far and had an opinion that the A99 is over priced. I even started a thread describing why I did not feel it was worth $1000 more than the A7 body (when the A99 ...
