Hello Guys, I'm thinking about selling my 70D, bought September 2015 together with my Sigma 17-50 F2.8 for buying a used (top condition) Sony a7. What I don't like at the 70D is the large size in my opinion its very hard to take in anywhere you go. I would switch to the a7 because of the small body and the amazing low light capabilities and the high dynamic range of the sensor. I would use the following lenses on the a7. - Sony 28-70 Kit lens (For video shooting due to the OSS)- Canon 50mm...

Hey gang.  Late to the game but finally upgrading to the A7 or A7R.  If I buy the A7 should I buy it with the kit lens 28-70mm or is there a similarly priced lens that would be beneficial to buy.  At the moment I am using only legacy Canon FD lenses on my NEX-5T.  My go to lenses are the Canon 85mm 1.2L and 50mm 1.4.   I will be doing mostly portraiture and product work but some landscapes as well.  I'd say 60% of my shoots will be in controlled lighting environments.  40% will be walkabout...

Hi photographers, I'm buying the A7 II with the 28-70mm f/3.5-5.6 kit lens. I will mainly use the camera to do portraits full body, half body and face-only, both in indoor and outdoor. At the beginning I thought this was an easy choice: everybody is incredibly happy with the 55mm, a stellar lens. But then I heard some popular photographers (ex. Tony Northrup), who almost always suggest the telephoto 70-200mm f/4 for portraits. Maybe the 70-200 f/4 is too tight for indoor, isn't it? Would you...

I recently purchased the Sony A7s and a Sony 28-70mm, but when I put on the lens, it won't autofocus, there's no f-stop reading and I get the message "Invalid because lens not attached. Attach lens correctly." It gives the same message for my manual lenses. I've Enabled Released w/o Lens, tried cleaning the contact points, gave it a firmware update and went through the manual to see what else it could be. ANY IDEAS? Much appreciated!

Dear DPReview Community, once again I request your aid. You've helped me pick a camera and lenses before, but indeciveness has reared its ugly head again. Over the past week, I've pored over articles, sample shots, videos, etc and I really can't make my mind. I've noticed that I tend to take more portrait shots (with a SEL 35, which I love) than other types, but I also want to continue my quest of travelling once a year to a far-off country. I've got a budget of about $800 for lenses. So it...

Hello, I have a Sony A7 with Sony FE 28-70mm kit lens. On the Sony A7, if i select "Shading Compensation" in the camera menu, the camera corrects vignetting in the saved raw file. I have experimented by taking two raw photos, with in camera Shading Compensation turned on and off. I then imported the photos into Lightroom. I then tried turning lens compensation (vignetting) on and off in Lightroom. This confuses me. In the first image (In camera ON and Lightroom correction ON) it looks like...

Hi guys, so I've been shooting with the Sony A7 + Kit lens for three days now and am very VERY happy with it. I've moved on from my Nikon D90. The Sony A7 Kit lens is sharp, across the frame, I'm astounded, must be a good sample. However, my cat was modeling for me in the backyard today (just kidding, just wanted to shoot a few RAW images to see how it comes out) and noticed that most things look good and sharp, but for example in his white whiskers, it's quite clear that the edge is...

Hello everyone, I am looking for a smaller and lighter alternative to my D800E + 24-70mm walk around lens, and am looking at two different Sony cameras: Sony A6000 + Zeiss 16-70mm f4 OSS - (285g + 308g) Sony A7 + Sony 28-70mm f/3.5-5.6 - (474g + 295g) I understand that one is a crop sensor with a better lens, and the other one is a full frame with kit lens, but I was wondering which would be a nice combination for day walk, maybe short hike or just a camera to carry with? I haven't had any...

I apologize if this question has already been asked. I was wondering if the FE 28-70MM F3.5-5.6 was a good all-around lens if you will not be able to invest in anymore lenses for a while. I know Zeiss would probably be the preferred choice if you have the extra cash at the initial purchase, but if that's not possible would you go ahead and purchase this setup anyway, if you had no specific photography in mind until upgrading? Or do you think it may be better to go with a less expensive Sony...
