Just wondering if either Sony lenses or Sony/Zeiss lenses, or Zeiss lenses I guess since they're a partner...I was curious if or how much better they are at using focus peaking accurately? Does it make a difference since they're designed for that camera specifically over say Canon glass adapted? Reason I ask (besides being a noob lol) is because of some articles mentioning things like CDAF and PDAF designed lenses and microcontrast/etc being better on certain lenses over others. Just...

So i'm researching the Loxia line of lenses from Zeiss for the A7S2, and I came across an article that basically said focus peaking is extremely easy on the aps-c line of cameras, but on full frame peaking is extremely difficult especially wide open on wide angle lenses. Obviously it'll be a lil harder like that, but they made a point to say it's because of Sony's neglect to fix an underlying issues with some kind of firmware update. This is a year old article, so I was curious if anyone...

Nissin Di700a, Air 1 remote flash worked fine with A7s markI. With A7r/s mark II remote flash has a massive lag. Is there any solution, firmware update?

I remember using 70–200 sony G lens with A7s in manual focus mode starting af pressing focus hold button. Same way as using activating focusing with thumb af/mf back button. Is it the mark II bug or is there way to activate focusing from the lens? That´s a nice feature specially with heavy lenses as forthcoming 24-70 mm G master.

Good night, everybody Im currently using a panasonic m43. I always had a look at sony cams for all the features they usually have (nice DR, Low light, S-log), but, as i'm a main videographer, only the high end models, as the a7s, a7sii and a7rii, got me, as with panasonic i already have 4k and dont wanna go back to full hd. The problem is that going full frame its out of my budget, and my country's currency and wage doesn't help at all (i'm brazillian). For months i've been keeping an eye...

I was gonna keep my lenses around for adapting to my new A7S2, but after using my Canon 50mm 1.4 I feel like it's time for an upgrade. I'd possibly keep around my 24-105mm but there's probably something better in the Sony line or a 3rd party brand I can get with time. The lenses i've been looking at are the: Zeiss Loxia 50mm f/2 Sony Sonnar T* FE 55mm f/1.8 Mitakon Zhongyi 50mm f/0.95 Zeiss Loxia 35mm f/2 Sigma 35mm f/1.4 The Sigma I would have to get an adapter for, but i've heard SOOO...

I hear alot of talk in reviews regarding how sharp lenses are, can the sensor output the actual image quality the lens is capable of, etc. If i'm only using the 12mp Sony A7S2 does that really matter as much or at all? I think in a Tony Northrup video he had 24mp cameras that could only render out the clarity of like 9mp or something to that effect. Is this kind of a non issue for the A7S2 or should I still be concerned with image quality as much as anyone else?

first of all, I do NOT video, I'm strictly a stills photographer anyways...so, long story short, this past Monday, I got about $15,000 worth of camera gear stolen.  The good news is, I'm covered by insurance and will (or should) be getting everything replaced.   At the moment, a store is dealing with the insurance agent and according to the store, they will be replacing the a7S with the a7S MkII since they no longer carry the a7S.  I have no problems taking the newer model... my a7S was my...

My first thread/question! I usually just read and read and read until I find an answer, but I have done so many searches and can not find the answer... Where my smart people at? I want to shoot video in continuous autofocus with a zoom at 2.8 aperture, on my sony a7Rii. Is this even possible? Awhile back I mounted a tamron 24-70 2.8 canon mount to an a7s, but was locked at 3.5 aperture for autofocus in video. Has this changed for the a7rii? Will it still lock at f/3.5? What if i use...

Is there a solution to control the focus and zoom remotely with some kind of controller?If I connect the camera to the PlayMemories Android app, I have the ability to zoom, and by touching the phones display I have the ability to refocus, but that is not what I desire. I need a solution to slowly focus during a video. I do not like touching the lens while the camera is on tripod. It shakes the camera, sometimes very badly.I also have an older IR remote I have used many years ago for a Sony...
