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

Hi all, sorry might be a dumb question, I tried searching, but didn't find anything. Will the Full Frame e-Mount lens work on the E-Mount NEX-7 line? Thanks in advance

Hi, what bothers me most, in my nex 7 is the lack of accuracy in getting focus in good light too. Of course it depends also on the lenses, but most times it dosen't focuses on the object I thought it would, a little bit before or often behind. Does it happen frequently in A6000 too? Shall I change to have a better accuracy? Thanks

I currently have a Fuji X-E2 and an NEX-F3 and for birding (casual stuff only) and kids, I find the NEX to be much more proficient. Don't laugh, birds and kids are very similar subjects, they both move quickly and unpredictably! I like to take photos of birds in flight and like to shoot with multi-area focus and continuous autofocus, and the F3 does surprisingly well. In all categories that matter (autofocus speed, shutter lag, and most importantly the ability to focus on a small object in...

I know focus peaking on the Nex7 mainly highlights vertical edges. Is the A6000's focus peaking more comprehensive due to it's hybrid AF or is it essentially the same?

What lens gives me Macro lens setup at 7360pixels - Full frame Does any one have example macro photographs with their Sony A7r and lens (setup)..

Do other lens with adapter give full frame results etc So how macro are these FE lenses (without...

Howdy Folks, I have a NEX-7 and Minolta 5600HS(D) flash.  I have an opportunity to do some quick and dirty work on some product shots. Items as small as a pencil to as large as a baseball bat.  I'm thinking of doing a setup in my basement with a backdrop and some speedlights.   I figure the speedlights could be used for other things like real estate, etc.   I'd like to do it relatively cheaply with a budget less than $500. Can I use the 5600HS(D) to trigger Yongnuo speedlights?

Hi guys, Have you tried using one of the "Polaroid" lens adapters? I found it in Amazon but not in the official Polaroid website. Is it any good? Thanks, Balduv --STFU because you're making the noise. Not the camera.

I've posted this question in another thread before, but thought I'd put it in its own thread since I never received a response. I am hoping to use one of these cases with the A6000 and was wondering if anyone had any experience with using either of these cases with their...
