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?
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...
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...
