As the question says, would the A7II be usable for beginner photographers? Budget isn't a huge problem and i'll be using it for travel so the weight is relatively light.

I've read through a lot of the threads on backpacks in here, however I'm pretty picky with what I look for in a camera bag so my apologies for what may be considered a re-post but I haven't found anything that works for me yet. Since picking up the A7II in January, I've accumulated some equipment and as you'd imagine, some if it is fairly large. Fitting my A7II, Zeiss 55, 28-70 kit, Minolta 70-210 f4 + LA-EA4, and flashes in my Slingshot 150AW is tight to say the least. I still plan to use it...

Hi, I'm looking for a cheap tele lens for my A7II and I was wondering about the Walimex Pro 500mm f/6.3. It's a cheap mirror less, quite compact, with fixed aperture. Does anyone have experience with this? I'm consdering it for photographing birds and the moon. I'd also like to know if A7II can stabilise the lens, since it's quite sensitive to shaking from what I've seen on youtube :) Samyang is also marketed as Walimex, Rokinon and a million other names.

After been forced to do a lens change in a dusty construction site again, I decided that it's probably time for me to get a standard zoom to make my life easier. I'm choosing between getting a Zeiss 16-70mm f4 for the a6000 or the FE28-70 kit on the A7. I was wondering which one would deliver better image quality? Would the A7 + kit "win hands down" due to its full frame sensor? Would the a6000 + 16-70mm f4 produce sharper and more detailed images due to the "Zeiss-ness" of the more expensive...

Can one focus the a6000 or a711 using finder or screen with a nd filter in place, or must one focus lens first and then screw filter in? --Bob M

Hi A7 community, I am interested to find if A7ii has a focusing mode where autofocus is set on the central point. I am a long time Canon user where I'm used to such focus work. This way I lock focus on the subject and then reframe as needed. I had some experience with Nex 5 but I could not find such focusing mode. Thanks

I constantly see comments concerning the a7 II's loose and too-easily opened battery and memory card doors here. On mine, I really don't see this being much of a problem, but I do see the total absence of any type of gasket or O-ring there that I would think would be an absolute necessity in order to make these openings water tight. Looks like Sony would have spent the extra few cents to have provided this, which would have also made these doors have a snugger fit as well. Why the lack of...

I am looking to use some heavier lenses with my A7r. I really need a base that will allow the full width of my hand a grip.I don't need all the length that a vertical grip provides. Anything out there?

Apologies, I suspect this is the kind of question that people will have asked before but I trawled through a lot of forum posts without being able to find it. I have been using a NEX-5N happily for the last few years. I've settled into primarily just using the two sigma primes and the 55-210 when it is called for. Also love my very cheap Rokkor 50 1.7. I've got a fairly significant birthday coming up shortly and looking to splash out on a new camera. I'm looking at one of the A7 models as a...
