im not able to turn the steady shot mode with my 24-70 FE? is this right or do i need to change a setting to enable it?  the lens has "optical steady shot" written on the barrel but when i try to turn it on via the menu system the camera says its not available with this lens? (or my 55 1.8) im also unable to turn the Distortion comp on or off with this lens? thank you for your help

Hi, Using Sony ILCE7 aka A7 I get a black underexposed band at top 10% (aprox) of the picture if I use a lens 200mm or longer with shutter speeds in excess of 1/2500 sec. Are any other users of A7 / A7S or A7R facing the same problem? Sample Shots with Sony FE 70-200mm & Canon FD 100-300mm are attached below. Both are shots of sky where top part should be brighter! Sony FE 70-200mm @ 200mm 1/6400 second @ f4 Canon FD 100-300mm f5.6 @ 300mm 1/5000 Second  @ f 5.6

Currently using Olympus M4/3 stuff, which I like to be honest. But I'm considering adding an A7R for the higher IQ, because I want to be free to print large.  That in itself may be a debatable topic. Anyway, I am prepared to spend but at same time I like to be reasonable, so I think in terms of costs and benefits. One thing that is bothering me a bit is the physical size of the Alpha lenses. The body of the A7 seems comparable to my OMD, but the lenses are much larger, and I do most of my...

Normally, i buy electronics new, but as I am considering the A7R , i see the current price for a new one is 2099 (calli ti 2100 ).  I want to buy before xmas, as I will be in USA then and want to buy there (not based there full time) On Ebay, there seems to be about 5 or so used A7R for sale, and the bids between 1500 and 1800. Any opinions on what would constitute a good deal, and what would not be worth the risk? Assuming only buying from sellers with good reps. One of my concerns is that i...

So, little info on what I got, what I want to do, and asking which direction I should be going... Since June of 2013, I have a little Sony NEX-F3, which for a newbie photographer like me has done a very good job. It came with it's standard 18-55mm manual zoom lens, and a few pretty crappy third-party wide-angle and telephoto lens adapters in the bundle that I bought (both of which I rarely used). Now, I primarily wanted this camera since it seemed simple to learn on, but flexible enough with...

Please excuse my lack of technical expertise - but can someone tell me please - If I use a Canon/Nikon mount Sigma 12-24 with adapter on an A7R - do I retain any electronic functions ? I am aware if I use A mount fit and one of the LEA? adapters I should - but not too keen on the bulk. I have enjoyed this lens in the past on FF Nikon/Canon/Sony and am wondering about trying it on A7R. Zony 16-35 f4 looking +ve, but like a bit wider than 16 if possible. Thanks.John

I am shooting some inside presentations and I am considering shooting some of the shots with available light. I am guessing I may have to go as high as 6400 ISO.  Whilst they look ok on the web I'm wondering how a 8x12 would look at that ISO when printed. Anyone? --Regards Michaelhttp://michaelminterphotography.zenfolio.com

Dear A7R naturalists, we share a dilemma. Photographing birds and distant wildlife requires good light, a steady camera, and long glass. Two out of three won't hack it. I have gone round and round with lens options, and (having ruled out the Sony version of Tamron's 100-500) have winnowed it down to three: Contax Zeiss Vario-Sonnar 100-300mm f/45.-5.6 Very sharp; compact; but with limited reach (and no tripod collar). It would require a leitax sex change and a Canon to E adapter. Totally...

Considering on getting the A580. I am previously a Nikon user when I started photography at school using my father's Nikon FM2. Then got my first DSLR, the Nikon D70. Then D70 -> D200 -> S5 Pro. I still have the S5 Pro but ever since I was introduced to mirrorless cameras my S5 Pro has been collecting dust and I have been using m43 and NEX cameras almost all the time. I haven't used a DSLR for almost four years now. Recently I have switched to A7R and have been buying a few MAF / Sony Alpha...
