I see that the RX10 will take a threaded shutter release cable on the shutter button, anyone know where to get one versus using the multi hot shoe? --TonyA100, A700, Sony 16-105, & 35/1.8, Minolta 50/ 1.7, and Tamron SP 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di & 55-200

I've been a loyal Canon customer for many years but have decided it's time to "get with the program" and go mirrorless. After looking at what's available I think I'll be going with the A6000 or maybe A7000 if looks like an improvement. So should I keep my L glass and buy an adaptor or should I just start again? The adaptors seem to be a bit hit and miss when it comes to AF etc. List of current gear is as follows: 20d plus other cheap and cheerful lenses 60d 24-70 2.8 L Mk1 70-200 F4 L...

Hello,I would like to know what has changed since the A7RII to allow to adapt third parties lenses like Canon ? Is it hardware or software ?, I mean could it be possible with the A7 to adapt siuch lenses via a firmware ?Do you think Sony will allow this with the A7000 ? It could be really bad news for the Sony competitors !

I love the images of the A700 but its bad for any pics over iso 800 in low light shots and not very fast at focusing for action shots out side though it can do well if I can some what anticipate the action.  I have purchased the RX10 mainly for that piece of Zeiss glass.  I have nothing in my bag that can match that lens except for maybe the 35/50 1.8 primes.  But I am hoping that the RX10 will far and away exceed low light shots at higher ISO than my A700 and give me flexibility with the...

Dear all, I hope this is the right place to ask my question. I am planning on buying an A6000 (or wait for the A7000, but they are both E-mount anyway) and would appreciate some advice on what lenses I should purchase. I wish to have an allround system for several purposes that I will first put to the test on a trip to New York. There, I want to take photos of my girlfriend in various situations in the city and indoors in restaurants etc., i.e. low and normal lighting. Also I was thinking to...

I want to make good use of my Zeiss Sonnar 1680 on my new a6000. What do others think the best lens adapter would be? LA-EA2/3/4? 2 LA-EA3 and 4 seem to be for full frame.  LA-EA2 for APS C. Thaks, Colin --varoomshka

With the option to adapt lenses, its becoming tricky to figure out which PRIMES are really needed to cover the entire range from 20-50mm. how do i calculate how much distance i can cover with legs between 2 specific focal lengths? here is my list. 20, 24, 30, 32, 35, 40, 50mm  (on APS-C)  i have a 20mm & 32mm. i am getting a 24mm & 40mm (Canon with Viltrox). Will that pretty much cover me from 20-50mm ?? (with the help of the 2 manual zoom levers attached to my A7000 camera body ;) are they...

Using my Metz 48 AF-1 in wireless mode with A700 I noticed that I could not change the shutter speed in Aperture priority mode even if lighting conditions changed, for instance by pointing the camera from another angle. I had the Sony 50mm F1.8 on at 1.8 aperture. I wanted darker background so I tried a lower exposure compensation (-1EV) to affect the background (not the flash compensation for my theme) and the shutter speed stayed unchanged at 1/80 seconds in all cases. By changing the flash...

I've enjoyed the A700 for many years and while I don't shoot much everyday I take a lot of images when I travel. I am considering a new A77ii and if I do so I do not want to have to purchase all new accessories as well, so I hope someone can advise me on the questions below. I have perhaps 15k actuations and many more miles left in my A700 so I don't have to upgrade now, but folks who have the A77ii seem to be happy and I want to stay with the crop factor.    The following is what I am...

Hello everyone looking for a little help with my first camera setup. I have asked many questions about a lot of different cameras as well i am looking for places to take some classes if i can find some that will work with my work.
