  • Clearing stock for a7000 =( one can only hope.
  • Replied in A77 2
    The D5500 would leave ~300-400 for nicer glass, D5500 has same sensor as d7200.  I did some more research, and highly rated lens need not cost 2k or more, if you do your research above average ...
  • Not outgrown, but I think five years is enough time to consider an upgrade. Also I am working on the gallery, not too found of the way Zenfolio does things, but I have thousands and thousands of ...
  • In a reply I just made, surely there is some middle ground someplace?  Where I can have a decent zoom?
  • Replied in A77 2
    There has to be a sweet spot someplace in the middle where you have IQ and the convenience of a zoom, when your halfway across the world its really hard to pack multiple lenses and carry a camera ...
  • Exactly right, I would be very disappointed if I spent $1500 or so on an upgrade and end up with very similar photos... I have a lot of thinking to do between now and when I make a buy in the ...
  • Sony is being very aggressive and in many ways innovating, but they seem to be focusing heavily on the E mount business and neglecting their A mount, as I have stated I would LOVE at A7II but I ...
  • I hate the pick one thing in particular, but its sharpness to me, nothing more appealing than a tack sharp photo.  The Nikons I read the low pass and AA filters being removed which has an impact ...
  • Well then let me ask you, what, in your opinion, would make a noticeable difference. Lets assume a budget of no more than 1500-2k, the latter being a huge difference. BTW, thank you for all the ...
  • Replied in A77 2
    While its a consideration it will not be a deal breaker for me, again stills are my priority with video being a distant second.  It's more of a future proof thing for me, my upgrade cycle is ...
  • No real glaring weakness, I just figured after 5 years, technology has possibly advanced enough where maybe some new gear should be considered.  But are you saying, my skills being the constant, ...
  • Its the comprise I make when I travel, plus we go hiking in remote parts of where we happen to be and I don't want to carry a heavy backpack, my poor wife sometimes carries the tripod should we ...
  • Replied in A77 2
    Stills for sure, video, we never do long clips, as we have learned, long clips can get boring really quickly unless there is a lot of dynamic changing scenery.  Its more of a future proof nice to ...
  • Replied in A77 2
    I almost pulled the trigger last year on that very camera, I do not remember what stopped me, these days with technology and these insane yearly product refresh cycles you fancy new camera in 1 ...
  • I have the excellent Sigma 17-70, and the Tamron 16-300,  our last trip on the Galapagos Islands, all hikes on the various islands were supervised and controlled so not much time to stop, swap ...
  • Couldn't have stated it better.  This is exactly what I want to do within reason,  I have a lot of time before my next trip and there are a few new cameras coming out and a ton of speculation on ...
  • Thank you for the long and detailed reply and I see you were trying to be helpful and I appreciate that. I forgot I had that in my signature, I use Flickr mostly now since they give you 1TB for ...
  • I bought my A55 in 2010 right before an Alaskan vacation and it has served me well for the last 5 years.  I think 5 generations is a good amount of time to consider an upgrade.  I am mostly a ...
