I noticed yesterday that the front dial started making a slight 'grinding'/friction sound when changing the Aperture (while installing FW 3 for the Techart Adapter). The rear dial is totally quiet and moves easily. Ages ago my D3S had the front dial become hard to turn but after quite a bit of use it went back to normal. The D3S had been used in really tough conditions, not so for the a7II. I do live in a very dusty environment but the Monsoon has started so no dust but high humidity and...

I Am in Switzerland, using the new 50 a fair amount for the first time.  I am finding it missing focus quite often, especially when bracketing.  The are landscape shots, mostly at infinity and in descent daylight.  I get the "beep" indicating focus in OK, but a quick check of the results shows a blurry photo.  Thought it might be too slow of a shutter speed, but I was even getting the issue at 1/250.  Manual focus works fine, and I have started to use that almost exclusively, to make sure I...

Hi everyone ! I was wondering if there was any comparison between the two options, since the angle of view is practically the same with both combinations. Do you have any insight ? Thanks in advance ! --Pierre P.Blog: http://pierrepaquetonphotography.wordpress.com

Hello. After days of researching and testing out different cameras in camera stores, I've narrowed down to two choices: The Olympus OM-D E-M10 ii and the Sony A6000. As an aspiring ethnographic researcher/journalist and a medic in the army, I want to photographically record my experiences.  That being said, I'm avoiding DSLRs as they are too big and bulky in the field. Testing out the two cameras, I noticed that the M10 ii autofocuses much faster and smoother than the A6000. Also, the...

I have a 2 month old Sony 128gb sdxc card that failed in the middle of taking a picture today.  My computer does not recognize the card either.  Over in Switzerland shooting my second day.  Afraid I may have lost some very nice images.  Any suggestions ?  Using an A7.          Was eventually able to get the  camera to use one of my other cards.

so, theres a very good deal on at the moment at my local camera store for the Sony Alpha 7 and i was just wondering what you guys think about moving from the Nikon D5500 to the A7. should i buy? is it worth having that camera or is there not really much point? i played with the A7 and liked it but its hard to really enjoy a camera with the sales reps standing next to me, thought about renting the A7 but not much time to go back and forth to the shops.  what do you guys recommend??? thanks

So after all my gear was stolen, I got this insane idea that I should go buy a Nikon D7200... well that ended quick.. faulty unit and found out that sony was the way for me.. My question Is when taking aside that the A7ii has IBIS and better DOF is it still worth it compared to ex. A6300 when comparing DPreview ISO I find them about the same, and the AF on A6300 is better..  So comparing the two in prices here in Denmark the A7ii with kit-lens is 2300$ and the A6300 with the 18-105 G lens is...

I have read that the A7II switches from PDAF to CDAF under certain conditions, but it is not entirely clear to me when.  1. Certain low light levels 2. At a certain aperature... this is where I am confused. I have been told by one person on here around f6 and by another around f9.  I have not yet acquired the A7II, but once my 70D, some canon lenses and flash are sold off today I plan on ordering one immediately. I have been considering the FE 24-240 as my first and all around and walk around...

Sony Alpha 7S11   12 Meg Pix Sony Alpha 7R11  42 Meg Pix \Sony Alpha 711   24 Meg Pix These are all full frame and yet there is a large Pix count difference. Does this mean that the 12 Meg Pix has larger Pix to cover the sensor and as I understand it larger Pix is better I would appreciate some advice before I buy one of them...Thanks....Jeff
