Hi guys, Do you also experience that the Medium Flexible Spot AF setting locks-in more often than Small Flexible Spot AF? For me, when I use the Small, it usually hunts especially indoor (limited light, not really low light). But when I use Medium, it locks in most of the time. Also, using DMF somehow improves it and makes the hunting go away a bit (btw, I don't really override the focus after locking). I'd appreciate your replies! Cheers!Balduv --STFU because you're making the noise. Not the...

Something tells me this is a dumb question... I am looking at DxOMark...at the low-light / indoor sports scores for the Sony A7. If I use an e-mount (NOT full frame) lens on the A7, would the low-light / indoor sports score degrade at all?  In other words, would the noise in the image be the same whether I use an FE lens or an E lens?   Or would using the E lens mean I would have to lower the shutter speed or open the aperture to keep the same noise as with an FE lens? Thanks...

Since I own the A700, I have several MemoryStick cards laying about. I also have several SD cards from my LX-7 laying about. When I put in my 16GB Duo Pro HX cards I see a message on the A7 that playback of movies may not be supported. Initially my concern was that maybe the counterfeiters were getting really good at counterfeiting memory sticks since there was a huge problem with that not too many years ago (and I suspect still is)... but the HX sticks I bought did come with the genuine Sony...

Hi all , just got hold of the great Sony alpha 7. I have seen that the Rokinon (brand renamed Samyang and /or Walimex in Europe) has put an alpha7-native 14mm f2.8 uwa lens on the American market. Does anyone know when this lens will be sold in Europe? And if already, where can I find it?  Thanks!

I wanted to get a ND filter for the Zeiss FE 35mm. At the glass its a 49mm diameter, but with the lens hood on, its a 40.5mm diameter. Looking at the hood, it seems to be threaded. Has anyone tried? Which size should I consider, is having the ND filter further away from the lens a pro or con? I know that a thicker profile filter at the lens will be to thick to screen the standard hood back on.  Also, is 5 stops or 3 stops the more commonly used filter? It has been cloudy for the last 3...

I'm trying to decide the better option for the putting a wide angle lens on the A7. One option is to go with the Sony 10-18 mm E mount lens. I realize it's not designed for the Full Frame of the A7, but as shown in the following thread, it's a very workable solution: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/54025061 Another option (I have the Alpha to E mount adapter on order), is to get the Sigma 10-20 mm in the Alpha mount. I see the advantage here of being able to use this lens on my A700 as...

Hello,  I have just acquired the cash to buy the Sony A7 or A7R, and I need some advice from the wonderful folks on this forum.  I am a wedding photographer and have always used Canon DSLR's with Canon L lenses.   I want to start getting into the mirror-less world, and I am pretty sure I want to go the Sony route being that you get a lot for your money.  Even though I shoot weddings for a living, I have a sincere love for landscape photography, and when I heard the Sony A7R had 36 megapixels...

Does anyone know of a good, reliable adapter mount to allow me to use a full frame Canon EF lens on the Sony a7? There are plenty of Canon to Nex adapters but I cannot seem to find one that is under $150 while still maintaining full frame lens capabilities.  I could really use some help- I know about the Metabones adapters, but am not looking to spend more than about $150 and do not want the sensor to be cropped to APS-C size either (defeats the purpose of full frame)... Thanks to everyone in...

Hi, I just previously purchased my first flash which is Sony HVL-F43AM, and I am now going to do some more experiment on off camera flash, and obviously there were a secondhand one of the HVL-F58AM around with a competitive price, but before deciding if i should get that one... there is some questions i need to check. As the older HVL-58AM cannot be mounted on a7 without an adapter, so i will have to use it as a slave (or "remote") - Is this possible? both of the models share pretty much the...

Hello, I'm looking for a wide angle to complete my lenses and I wonder if someone had already tried the so expensive Zeiss Distagon 15 / 2.8 ZM on an A7/ R / S model in full frame mode. Because of it's price, you have to think twice before buying such thing, so any advice, samples, personal experience would be appreciated, thanks ;)
