Hi, In photo mode Canon 6D and Sony a7s give almost the same results in low light conditions: Sony Alpha 7s and Canon 6D Studio shot comparison But in video mode Sony is MUCH more sensitive to the light: Low light video: Canon 6D vs Sony A7s Why there is so huge difference in video mode although photos are almost exactly the same?

I recently purchased the Sony A7s and a Sony 28-70mm, but when I put on the lens, it won't autofocus, there's no f-stop reading and I get the message "Invalid because lens not attached. Attach lens correctly." It gives the same message for my manual lenses. I've Enabled Released w/o Lens, tried cleaning the contact points, gave it a firmware update and went through the manual to see what else it could be. ANY IDEAS? Much appreciated!

Hey all, I'm planning on purchasing a new camera this week and have done a lot of research into both the XT1 and the Sony FE system. I was hoping that you guys could help me pick which camera to purchase based on my needs. From my research, the pros of the two systems seem to be as follows: Fuji: Beautiful JPEGs (explained later in my post) Full selection of lenses, both zoom and prime - reasonably priced, high quality, with a large handful of them weather-sealed Lightweight and beautiful...

Should I get A7 II or A7S ? How much did you pay for your A7S ? I am recently interesting on Night Shoot Portrait, and I wonder should I get A7 II for 5Axis, or a boost ISO like A7S... Hard for me to decide >_< --Add me? We shoot togetherhttp://www.dslr101.comhttp://flickr.com/photos/dslr101

I saw a few videos showcasing the speed of Canon lenses + Metabones IV with A7rII and the AF speed is pretty impressive at least way better than on A7s and other older models relatively speaking. So I was wondering if the speed is actually better than using LA-EA4 + non SSM/HSM/USD lenses such as Minolta AF lenses, Sony non SSMs such as 135/1.8, 85/1.4, etc. If so then RIP Minolta AF, Sony non SSM, and other non HSM/USD lenses and Canon + FE lenses all the way? Do SAM lenses work on LA-EA3?...

I am shooting with A6000 and Carl 135mm 1.8 + some M42 lens. The A6000 is not good for at night, with ISo 1600/3200+ , the photo is bad. ( because I shoot Portrait only, no landscape, so I don't like tripod ). I heard A99 have sensor shift too, how it's compare to the A7 II ? and A7S / A7RII , can shoot at fast shutter with very hight ISO like 10,000+ and the photo still look good, right? Do you think a sensor shift is better than high ISO like A7S / A7R II ? --Add me? We shoot...

Hi Sony people. I was thinking about jumping into a A7 camera for its unbeatable versatility and adaptivity. Here is my question. I'll be using it with Nikon AI-S super telephoto lenses. Mainly the 500 F4 P and 800 F/8. Would it be better to get the A7II with its decent ISO and in camera stabilization or go for the A7s with its best in class ISO and just keep a high shutter speed?  My gut is telling me go with the A7s...

I was planning on acquiring Sony's PZ 28-135 lens. The reviews have mostly been stellar and it is designed for the FS7 as well as the A7S and A7RII. Unfortunately, an emerging consensus is that A7RII video is best in S35 mode, making the widest angle on the PZ lens 42mm, and Sony's standard 24-70 would = 36 - 105. Has anyone tried with success APS/C or full frame lenses that are more practical, either from Sony or from a Canon mount supplier for a standard zoom? The Sigma APS/C 18-35 f 1.8,...

Besides the expensive 28-135/4 PZ lens, are there any other PZ lenses for full frame E mount Sony cameras? I wanted a Power zoom lens for video work similar to the 16-50 PZ OSS or 18-200 PZ OSS on the APSC E-mount system. I can only find the 28-135/4 but that lens is too expensive and too big and heavy for every day video use. Are there any other options? Or should I just go for a dedicated camcorder? But I love the A7s sensor will they put that sensor on a camcorder in the future such as VG...
