I need answers to the following. I have a Sony A900 and Sony A700. Minolta 17-35mm F2.8 excellent results. Carl Zeiss Sony F2.8  24-70 ZoomZA on A900 and A700  sharp as a pin  within range indicated on lens 1.2- 10 Feet. I suspect this is a specialialized  Portrait Zoom Lens and although reviews state suitable for Interiors and Landscapes, I cannot obtain the results achieve with other quality lenses such as CZ 135 prime. In a recent email Sony Customer Services informed me that they cannot...
The a6000 is the closest thing to a DSLR that isn't a DSLR that I've ever used.. However, I'm still holding onto my a700 because of two lenses that don't have e-mount equivalents: 28-75 f/2.8 and 70-300G SSM. Maybe I can find a la-ea2 to get me by. I have the la-ea1 but losing PDAF with the 70-300 is a nightmare. --'I reject your reality and substitute my own' -Adam Savage
OK, so I have had an A700 for about 6 years now. I love it. I am ready to upgrade. I can't decide...should I switch to E mount or not? I already have money in the A mount system...4 lenses and a flash. I would either have to buy new lenses, which seem really expensive for E-mount or get an adapter, which kind of defeats the purpose of going E-mount in the first place. Putting that aside, how does the A6000 compare to the A77 II or the A65? I am sure some of you in here have made the switch...
Hi guys, first time posting, but long time lurker of the forums.  I recently purchased a NEX-7 and have been using it a lot.  I've been very happy with the results.  I liked it so much, I bought my wife a NEX-5 which she loves.  My Sony A77 has been gathering dust and I'm wondering, is it time to sell the SLR body and lenses and just go with the NEX?  My first SLR was a Minolta, then the Sony A100, then the A700.  I find myself reluctant to make the leap away from the SLR body, but I hate to...
Alright. I have the NEX-3 and while I do enjoy the camera very much I just can't live without a viewfinder. Not to mention the AF is atrocious compared to phase detect AF. So anyway, I'm planning on getting an a6000. However, I'm not happy with lens options. I have an a700 as well and the KM 28-75 f/2.8 lives on it. I want a 2.8 zoom for E-mount as well, but it just doesn't seem to exist. So. I did get the 16 f/2.8 with my NEX-3. Keeping that. I'd like to supplement it with something in the...
I remember the A700 US version has a sensor that detects the presence of a human hand, which was removed from the european version. 1) Does the US vertical grip have the same sensor too? 2) Can I combine a US camera body and an european grip? 3) Can I combine an european camera body and an US grip?

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  , i want to upgrade from my Canon S95 which is slow and can't get thin DOF. I love to go fishing , lots of opportunities to make a nice shot . I was thinking of buying a body with a fast prime , to learn to play with the DOF. As i don't want to worry about some rain , i was looking at the a700 . I like it because it has 2 control wheels . a700 + 35mm f1.8  or a minolta 50mm f 1.7 ? By the way , i held an a58 the other day ; these SLT's are really fast !! Would the speed of the a700 turn...
The more I use the A99 the more I discover how much I need to learn (but it's lots of fun). Well, I getting ready for a week long adventure to photograph BIF in Florida and I am trying to figure out if my A99 w/70-400mm G has more capability than I am using (answer is obviously, yes). One thing I am trying to make sure I have correct in my head is how AF-D works with other settings: 1) AF-D with Continuous Shooting “Hi” 2) AF-D with Auto Focus Area "Spot" Quote from Gary Friedman's Book: TIP:...
