Anyone using the A-mount 16-50mm f2.8 lens on your A7x camera? I've got a good copy, that I loved so much in the past 10 month with my a700. I've since upgraded to the a7ii with kit lens. I am trying to convince myself to let it go. Is there any good reason to sell it? What is the equivalent in FE lens without breaking my wallet? I have LA-EA4 adaptor for Minolta stuff too. I don't want to hoard the lens that I know it can probably be sold with a good return value. I like shooting it at F4.5...

Just bought this and according to the user manual, the shutter button has the same functionality as the one on my old A700 i.e. depress halfway = focusing, depress full and shutter is released, hovever on my old A700 there was a clear distinction between half and full depressed button, which I don't get on the A77II. Is this a defect or just the way it's made?

Myself and my wife shoot with a variety of A mount cameras. an A580, A900, A700. We shot mostly while travelling in Asia. We shot a variety of landscapes, street shooting and portraits of people we meet. My wife uses a Sigma DC 18-250 F3.5-6.3 with the A580 and I use my 70-210 f4 a lot of the time on my A900 and previously on my A700. We shoot alot of photos and they are most often crisp, sharp and very good overall. However we also get a fair amount of shots we call the"nothing in focus...

Sold my A700 1½ years ago and have been missing a camera ever since. I own a couple of A-mount lenses a flash and several other stuff for the A-mount system, so I would like to know if the A77II is still a good buy or if this whole line (A-mount) is abandoned anytime soon by Sony?

I'm wondering if somebody could share their settings for back button focus. I have turned off the focus on the shutter and reassigned that a back button. That works fine, but I'm not sure if it's a result of that or something else, but now when I have the camera in continuous focus, it won't focus that way. I enabled focusing with the eye, which does enable continuous focus, but ended up turning that off last night when shoot a basketball game because it just didn't seem to focus in on what I...

I have the chance to pick up a Tokina 400/5.6 lens "in great condition" for just under $200. Seller is local and I can inspect but haven't yet.  I've read about it on Dyxum but most reviewers were using the a700 or older bodies and didn't think much of the sharpness, even stopped down a bit. I'm curious if anyone has used this on a more recent body with MFA and if so has your opinion of its sharpness improved after adjustments? Would the a77II even recognize/register this lens to store an MFA...

I have a nex 7 and the 16-50 kit lens (and many other sony and sigma lenses).  I'm also an experienced adobe camera raw user.  Like most 16-50s mine is rather soft in the corners at 16mm with lens corrections turned on.  If I turn the lens corrections off, the corners are much sharper but there are problems with barrel distortion and vignetting, some of which I can manually correct.  However, I have found that this lens performs quite well in the 18-20 to 50 range.  I suspect, but don't...

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 !
