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...

I've had an A99 for over two years ( which I love ) and four months ago bought an A6000. I'm very well impressed with the A6000, and was thinking of buying an A7 or A7r. My doubt is which of the two: I'm tempted by the cropping possibilities with the A7r, but the potential higher noise at high ISOs and mainly slower AF compared to the A7 really concern me. Are those worries well founded? Is the AF so much worse on the A7r? Please, I'd appreciate comments from whomever has experienced both...

Hi, I am considering adding a Sony A7R body to my equipment, mainly for shooting landscape. Can those of you who already use EF-lenses on these adapters comment on how stable they are and which lenses you carry on them ? Any feedback or advice is greatly appreciated.

Deciding between A7 and A7R, planning to use EF lenses via smart adaptor (metabones etc). Couldn't work out from online info with definate confident that if A7 will use PDAF for EF lenses via these adaptor (and which one? does all of them support/don't support PDAF?). Help to clarify this will be of great help to me. Thanks in advance. I guess both A7 and A7R are doom to CDAF for EF lenses, just need to be sure before I pull the trigger to buy.

I'm missing this lens for my portrait shots and have been toying with the idea of saving for the zeiss 135 but it's been a tough road to save at least 2k for it. Then there's the canon 135 f2 which is very popular and affordable, used can be found between 7-800 usd. Are there any other options? Or maybe I should just stick with the 85mm 1.4 rokinon?

Vario-Tessar FE 24-70mm F4 ZA OSS F11, 1.3sec, ISO 400  Hi! This is a picture in the Sony A7/A7R brochure. I'm curious why the exposure was set a F11, 1.3 sec, ISO 400, instead of like F4, 1/60, ISO400? Why the longer shutter and smaller aperture?  Thank you! Tony
