Hello everyone, I bought my a580 used about a year and a half ago, and have been very happy with it. When it first arrived, i must say it was in absolutely perfect condition (and only 8000 clicks). However, after a lot of handling (and another 50,000 clicks) the grip has become very weird feeling, sort of sticky when you first grip it, and after a while even a little slippery. The problem is clearly in the rubber of the grip, and i'd like to ask if anyone has experienced such a problem...

I currently use an A580 and my walk-around lens is the Sigma 17-70 f/2.8-4.0 OS. I have boatloads of other glass including full frame 70-200 f/2.8, UWA zoom, and a variety of primes. I am considering purchasing the A6000 as I am attracted to its compact format. I would either need to purchase the LEA4 adaptor or purchase new lenses. I suspect that I would keep both bodies and use only the A6000 when travelling "light". So we come to the PZ 18-105 f/4 lens which seems to provide pretty good...

I am thinking of buying an A580 to replace my wife's A200. I like the A580 because it has both an optical viewfinder and live-view as well as HDR, panoramic mode, video and the tilting back screen. I think this will be the last optical viewfinder A-mount Sony will ever make so that is another reason I want to get one now. I would like to hear your opinion of the A580 and how it compares to the A200. Thanks. PS I shoot with a couple of A700s (best shooting layout of controls and menus) an A900...

My husband has offered to buy me a new lens to add to my collection and I am trying to decide between a Tamron 200-500mm f/5-6.3 SP AF Di LD (IF) Lens and a Sigma 73A205 150-500mm F/5-6.3 APO HSM DG lens. I use a A77, A580, and an A700. There's nothing in particular I plan to use it for. I would love to hear your thoughts on these lenses. Thanks in advance for any thoughts on these lenses.

Hi Looking for the best quality for stills - I can always use the GH2 for video I have a GH2 and GF3 with 14mm and kit lens I have an old KM 5d, with minolta 50mm 1.4, KM 17 - 35 2.8 zoom and a nice sony flash. I have been slightly disappointed with the grain i can see from my micro-4/3 cameras compared to my 10 year old Konica minolta 5d. Do i get a a55 / a580 body and use my old lenses or go for the leica 25mm and stick with my panasonic bodies? I have been using the minolta lenses on the...

Hi all. I really don't know how to explain this, so bear with me here. While taking pictures last night, my a580 wouldn't respond to the shutter button. After switching to manual focus, I was able to take a few pictures, but autofocus was a must at the time so I had to switch back to AF. When I did go back to AF, however, the SteadyShot and Flash symbols on the LCD would start flashing, and after a few seconds of not focusing at all, the motor would change the focus of the lens, and then a...
