I have an NEX-7 and an a6000 and wish to video tape and shoot my wife's indoor martial arts black belt test.  It will be better than average indoor lighting, but limited natural light.  I am fairly new to shooting with the compact slr's or any slr's and I was wondering if it would be worth purchasing the Vario 16-70 lens to take the action shots.  I also have the sony 35mm and 20mm lenses.  I do not wish to use the kit lens as I am not very good at shooting and getting good results with that...

I have the nex 7 with the 24mm zeiss, the 18-55 sony, the 16 sony, and the 19 and 30 sigmas. Can anyone that has both the nex 7 and the a6000 comment about how any or all of the above lenses compare in the sides and corners?  The price of the a6000 is very attractive now.  Also, any other real life advantages to the a6000?  I know the specs of the evf in the a6000 are not as good as the nex 7, but many seem to feel that there is no substantive difference between the two.  I have always felt...

I have a NEX-7 and thinking about buying an A7R in the near future.  I also have some old Canon AF lenses that I would like to use on these cameras.  What type of adapters are best to use with the NEX and A&R?  I've seen some videos out there that show adapters for $15 and some a couple of hundred bucks.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Dear forum members, I kindly ask you for some advice. I am (still) a happy Nex-7 user. I shoot travel, landscape, portraits, street. Plus some video. Here are some of my pics at Flick https://www.flickr.com/photos/107514555@N06/  I own the 18-55 kit lens (which I find quite OK) + SEL1628 + UWA. I also have a bunch of old manual primes, mostly Canon FD, from the old good days of film, which I uses in some occasions, but not quite much when travelling, as I don't like to carry much weight. For...

I am seriously considering the purchase of a Sony Alpha A6000 (today!). As a former Nikon then Fuji user - oh, and I had a NEX 7 at one point, too - I am looking at the flexibility offered by the Alpha E-mount, given that it now has APSC and FF options, and that the A7 series has been so well received. However, probably a very dumb question which I have not been able to find the answer to: If I were to buy an (F)E-mount lens, like the Sony Zeiss 16-35mm or the 70-200mm, for use on the A6000,...

So, will shooting a Nex 7 with a lower pixel setting lower jpeg noise? What have Nex 7 users found as the best way to get good low light results?

Hi,I'm planing to buy this camera but I like to know is it possible to record series of images via IR remote control.  I like to do following: -push the trigger on IR remote controler and start recording images in specific interval. (i.e. every 2 seconds) - push the trigger on remote controller to stop recording.  Is is possible to do that? Thank You.

Hey all! I've been reading dpreview for years and years, have never needed a reason to reg till just now! Here's my question: A good friend of mine gave me first dibs at his camera/lens collection. For years I have been telling myself that I am going to buy a camera for around $1000. I have always been in secret love with photography and over the years I have owned a few nice-ish cameras such as Nikon D300, Canon 7D, but every time that I needed extra cash I would take a loss on my camera at...

Hi guys I'm about to bid on a used Nex-7, and want to buy a Zeiss 16-70 as my day-to-day lens. Only thing holding me back is uncertainty whether the magenta / purple corners issue (relating to wide angle lenses on the Nex 7) is also present on the wide end with the 16-70 lens. The idea of using Cornerfix etc seems a bit inconvenient. Sorry if this question has been asked, I did a bit of a search for this camera/lens combo but couldn't find much. Thanks
