I am trialing an A7 (amazon warehouse deal w 30 day return), and so far have really enjoyed it with the zeiss 35mm 2.8. However, I feel I have to make a VERY compelling case over the A6000 that I feel is a nearly perfect camera. Oh, and without totally breaking the bank! I mostly shoot landscapes and adventure/hiking photography, and I mostly shoot on the wide end. However, there are times where I do want to have the compression/reach of a telephoto. It’s not too often, so I’ve normally been...

Hi all, I was wondering if you could cast your expert eyes over the following image. If you zoom into the centre of the gate, where the rust is contrasted against the grass, you'll see that the rust colour bleeds/ghosts over the grass.  A7II 16-35 FE f/4 @ f/11 1/400 ISO 200 Original RAW: https://www.dropbox.com/s/wzz6d06ls285t88/DSC06968.ARW?dl=0 Is this normal? Have you ever seen something like it before? It certainly looks like a digital issue due to the almost perfect distribution.I'd...

Hi, My question is basically, if I use Crop Mode on my A7r (APS-c), I understand the resolution of stills is reduced. But when filming Video on the A7r in Crop Mode...is it still1080p? My settings are 60p 28m, 1080p but I'm not sure if I put APS-C mode on, if that 1080p in full frame mode is cropped into a lower resolution. My goal is to use Crop mode on my Zeiss 55mm F1.8 and still get 1080p for video on the a7r. Any advice appreciated thanks

Since Leica cameras are Outrageous to own and rent I was thinking about renting a A7II with a Leica lens attached but wondering if any of you in here have experience using manual focus lenses on the A7II and if focusing is Easy? Focus Peaking, etc.?

I just read a thread on the Fotodiox Tough E-Mount and was quite fascinated by how a few defended the sloppy half plastic mount on the A7 and A7r. This thread isn't about that. I just purchased a Canon FD 500mm f4.5L and will be using it a lot. I hadn't noticed how much slop was in the mount until I upgraded to this larger lens. And just to prevent deterioration of this thread... no I don't wag the lens around unsupported. There is still a lot more force with a lens like this even when doing...

I plan to use my A7II with a Phottix Odin radio controller and 2 flashes (1 Phottix flash with built-in Odin receiver and 1 Sony F43M flash with an external Phottix Odin receiver). I understand that if my subject is at the center of the frame, I can use A7II's center metering mode and dial in the correct amount of compensation for the flash. If the subject is off center, what settings do I use so that I can get proper flash exposure with the setup?
