Sony Alpha 7S in MLS (Multiple Listings) Photography I currently use a Sony RX100 for MLS photography. I do this for real estate agents. I am purchasing a Alpha 7S this week and wanted some advice on what would be the best prime lenses for this purpose. So far I'm looking at these: SEL55F28Z Sonnar 55mm F1.8 ZASEL35F28Z 35MM F2.8SAL20F28 20mm F2.8 Wide-Angle Prime Lens Please advise. Thank you

Okay I understand that if I use a 16-70 E mount lens it will basically be a 24-105 equivalent on the A7S, but what I can't seem to figure out (since none of the reviews mention it) is what will the resolution be? If I use an e-mount lens on an a7s will it capture stills at 12mp still?

Any shutter speed/ISO limits or banding during still shooting.  Is it really silent?  Any other impact on IQ? Thank you for sharing your impressions. Cheers.

Hi guys, as an original NEX-5 and Canon 7D user that is planning to finally upgrade this year. I just wanted to find out some information about A7s that I haven't really been able to find. Hopefully I can get some answers from more knowledgable people here. 1- with the A7s, why would it be limited to 5fps? it's not a processing problems as A6000 use same processor and can do 11. Saying that it's also 24mp vs 12mp.  Can someone please explain this or is Sony just holding out for a version 2 or...

I do video work in the Outdoor industry, mainly a combination of video and timelapses which I always shoot as raw image sequences. I'm considering upgrading from the NEX-5R to the A7s because of the increased low light for video (in outdoor filming, low light is the norm rather than the exception). Let me know if I am understanding this right... -According to DXOMark, the A7s has a usable ISO of 3702, whereas the NEX-5R has a usable rating of 910. This matches my previous experience that...

I have a Sony A7S and the focusing area defaults to 'Flexible Spot M'.. For shooting movies which would be the recommended focusing area for me to use when using continuous auto focus? The choices are "(Wide/Zone/Center/Flexible Spot/Lock-on AF)"I'm mainly shooting at the 16mm , 35mm and 55mm focal ranges and I am shooting on a glidecam/steadicam and following/tracking subjects.. Both me and the subjects are moving. I need to do shots like follow people walking at 55mm or 35mm , also wide...

In regards to the top selection dial on the A7S.. It has the usual settings 'AUTO' 'A' 'S' 'M' 'SCN' etc.. Now you can shoot a movie in any of the modes by using the movie-record  button on the camera..  What I want to know is what has Sony included an actual 'movie' selection on the dial? The Filmstrip icon..  What is the purpose of having a dedicated movie selection on the dial when you can just shoot  movie in the other modes? Does selecting 'movie' on the dial do anything different than...

What recommendations do people have for a fast 35mm prime for the A7s body? Leica is out, because the cost is too high for me, but anything under $1500 is fine. Also, which adapter would best suit this combination?Anything to suggest Sony/Zeiss intend to launch a faster 35 prime in the next 12 months?

Hi Guys, Looking for options to replace Apple's (recently killed) Aperture. I'm currently cataloguing, stills, AVCHD & audio clips within Aperture in one "job folder." What are the good choices in DAM's currently? I liked CaptureOne, but it was a no-go for video clips (I think). Lightroom handles stills & video, BUT, will it handle the A7S' XAVC S video files. I realize that I'm probably SOOL where audio is concerned though, I think Aperture was the only game in town for...

The Sony a7S is marketed as a camera with highly capable video capabilities. In this video from NAB (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kJzGLiim2dU), the Sony rep mentioned the 30-min recording limit found on most still cameras will be lifted on the a7S. Apparently, it is not going to happen... On 6/21, Matthew Allard posted on Twitter "Big problem on the Sony A7s. It only records for 29min 50 seconds at a time." It was later confirmed by another owner that his international version also cuts...
