Good evening, everyone. I'm looking 90mm lens for my A7ii. After reading lots of review, I'll buy a leica elmairt M 90mm. But mostly, reviewers use this lens on leica camera (or DSLR), but no photos taken from A7 series (especially A7ii). If there is anybody using this lens with A7ii or A7, which is same sensor with A7ii(So I think I'll get same result on A7ii), please give me some examples and how do you feel about this lens on A7 series. Thank for reading. P/s: With 90mm focal length,...

This is probably a very strange question, I was wondering if I could get some suggestion on whether if I should get the E-mount 35mm f/1.8 lens for my a6000 as an AF option over my current manual focus arrangement (A7 + Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D). I'm using DXOMarks datas for reference. Because I obviously cannot get the data for adapted lenses, so I chose to use D600 (supposed to have a very similar sensor to the one on the A7) as the body for the Nikkor lens data. In terms of sharpness, if you...

Agh! Going crazy. I sold all my Nikon gear (D600, 24-70 f2.8, 50 f1.4) because I want to move into the Sony world. I've probably read and watched everything on the internet related to the A7s and A7II, and just don't know which one to get. I really enjoy taking natural light shots, whether that's on a hike in the woods, or during dusk. I love landscape, astrophotography, and just general street photography. What attracts me about the A7s: Excellent low light.Excellent video.120p...

The very recent review of the Google Nexus 6 mentions "optical image stabilization". Is that more or less equivalent to Canon's IS or Nikons VR? Or the IBIS (in body) for the A7-ii? I think Panasonic Lumix cameras have OIS. I'm curious is "real" IS is happening, or "digital" like "digital zoom". I didn't notice OIS being explained, but maybe I read too fast.

hi, I have two questions about the Sony A7 (I) ilce-7 camera. 1, when I use dmf I first metering and locking the AE by half pressing the shutter button then I recompose the picture and when I adjusting the focus manually (dmf) the AE lock is immediately unlocking and it adjust the exposition to the new light condition which is annoying that's why I half press the shutter button to keep the first metering values... is it a bug or I can set it somewhere or I do something wrong? 2, When I...

So the idea of a compact camera will a full-frame sensor, such as the A7, sounds great, but what is the point if none of the lenses are compact. I am looking for a lens that is close to normal focal length, and when used with an adapter to fit the Sony A7 is actually compact, so at least as physically short as the FE 35mm (according to DPreview 37mm or 1.46") , preferrably shorter. Is such a thing possible without vignetting or some other unforseen issue? I am not particularly concerned about...

As a previous NEX 5n & 7 user, I just moved up to a A7 with kit 28-70 full frame lens. I realize how the APS-C lens trade-off thing works on the A7 body (vignetting, etc.) and the A7's menu setting to compensate when using these lenses on it by filling the frame with the cropped image, but at the expense of not being able to utilize the full sensor's capabilities. You're creating an image about one third as big as you'd get with a full frame lens, as a matter of fact. What I'm wondering here...

I am considering purchasing an A7ii camera with an A-mount to E-mount adapter. Since the A7ii has both on-sensor phase detection and contrast detection, is there any advantage to purchasing a Sony LAEA4 adapter rather than a LAEA3 adapter?  Also, I noticed in some reviews that some users were not able to auto focus Sigma lenses using these adapters.  Have members of the forum found this to be problem?

Hi my friends. I bought couple EF - Nex with Auto Focus around $100 on ebay. And the Auto Focus take 3 seconds to get the object in good light. I heard people talk about "Metabones" , $400, I want to know more about this adapter.  1. Does it eat battery like my stupid AF Adapter?2. Does it good on auto focus ? Faster than my 3 seconds AF adapter. Thanks my friends, if it worth $399, I will buy it >_< --Add me? We shoot togetherhttp://www.dslr101.comhttp://flickr.com/photos/dslr101
