It's only been a few days since I switched from manual lenses and the 35/2.8 to the 55/1.8 as my everyday lens. Honestly I haven't been too impressed by it. This is mostly because I find the AF performance of the A7 + 55/1.8 combo to be slower than the 35/2.8. I usually only use single point AF (centre) & focus recompose. But even with this technique, sometimes my camera would struggle to achieve AF lock in the strangest situation. The picture below is one of them that I encountered earlier....

Pentax solved this issue over a decade and a half ago. When the camera is turned on with a manual lens installed , the IBIS focal length setting screen is displayed to confirm the correct setting. Lack of communication with the lens triggers the screen display. A gentle remainder always worked for me. I hope that Sony figures this out soon.  --Sony A7R Sony A7II Pentax K5ii

Has anyone tried using the Rokinon 10mm f2.8 lens designed for APS-C size sensors on a full frame camera like the A7?  I am wondering if the vignetting will be any at all or noticeable, since I have read that actually this lens was first designed for full frame cameras yet being marketed for APS-C sensor cameras.  If it's anything like the Sony 10-18, the vignetting might not be bad at all and considering the size of the lens, thinking this might be an interesting combination.  Anyone tried it?

I don't have a 35mm lens yet. I have a LA-EA4 adapter already. Should I get this Sigma lens or the Sony FE 35mm F2.8 lens? They are about the same price.

My NEX7 developed a few barely perceptible sensor defects after 2.9 yrs while under 3 yr warranty. The camera is very usable but Sony refunded the full cost as well as giving me the camera back. SONY YOU HAVE MY LOYALTY! Time to upgrade. After much research I am thinking a7ii with 24-70. My considerations: a7, a7ii, a7s, a6000. 28-70, 24-70, and 55. ? my thought process A7ii upgraded build quality and ergonomics. IBIS ? better for street photos/snapping on the run. 24-70 a little lighter than...

If I'm shooting astro stuff, would it behoove me to remove my A99's mirror before I go out? I use the Rokinon 14mm, so I'm manual focusing anyway. Will that give me lower noise images, or am I better off using Noise Ninja or that new program, Noiseless?

Hi all, I have  Sony A7 with a Sony HVL-F20M flash. When I attach the flash directly onto the camera's hot shoe, everything works perfectly and the flash fires as it should. Now I would like to use two Yongnuo RF603-c3ii units for remote flash operation. For that purpose, I attach one of the Yongnuos onto the hot shoe of the Sony A7 with setting to "TX". The Sony HVL-F20M flash is attached onto the second Yongnuo RF603-c3ii with setting to "TRX". Now, when I release the shutter of the A7, the...

Curious if anyone has lost their battery door and been able to find a replacement or part # anywhere.  I misplaced mine while I was using the battery grip.  Any ideas, I can't find anything anywhere at all. Thanks!

The title speaks for itself. Can it be improve? Can we find ways to make it more fair to compare cameras be it different sensor size or the similar? Here's a bonus. Look closely how the light reflection on the brass part of the red brush. Sony a7, A7ii and even A7r have distinctive reflection or shadow cast suggesting the lighting condition is different from the Nikons. Click here. According to the reviewer of thousand of shots made using the comparison there's about 1/6-1/3EV margin of...
