Dear all, I hope this is the right place to ask my question. I am planning on buying an A6000 (or wait for the A7000, but they are both E-mount anyway) and would appreciate some advice on what lenses I should purchase. I wish to have an allround system for several purposes that I will first put to the test on a trip to New York. There, I want to take photos of my girlfriend in various situations in the city and indoors in restaurants etc., i.e. low and normal lighting. Also I was thinking to...

I want to make good use of my Zeiss Sonnar 1680 on my new a6000. What do others think the best lens adapter would be? LA-EA2/3/4? 2 LA-EA3 and 4 seem to be for full frame.  LA-EA2 for APS C. Thaks, Colin --varoomshka

With the option to adapt lenses, its becoming tricky to figure out which PRIMES are really needed to cover the entire range from 20-50mm. how do i calculate how much distance i can cover with legs between 2 specific focal lengths? here is my list. 20, 24, 30, 32, 35, 40, 50mm  (on APS-C)  i have a 20mm & 32mm. i am getting a 24mm & 40mm (Canon with Viltrox). Will that pretty much cover me from 20-50mm ?? (with the help of the 2 manual zoom levers attached to my A7000 camera body ;) are they...

Using my Metz 48 AF-1 in wireless mode with A700 I noticed that I could not change the shutter speed in Aperture priority mode even if lighting conditions changed, for instance by pointing the camera from another angle. I had the Sony 50mm F1.8 on at 1.8 aperture. I wanted darker background so I tried a lower exposure compensation (-1EV) to affect the background (not the flash compensation for my theme) and the shutter speed stayed unchanged at 1/80 seconds in all cases. By changing the flash...

I've enjoyed the A700 for many years and while I don't shoot much everyday I take a lot of images when I travel. I am considering a new A77ii and if I do so I do not want to have to purchase all new accessories as well, so I hope someone can advise me on the questions below. I have perhaps 15k actuations and many more miles left in my A700 so I don't have to upgrade now, but folks who have the A77ii seem to be happy and I want to stay with the crop factor.    The following is what I am...

Hello everyone looking for a little help with my first camera setup. I have asked many questions about a lot of different cameras as well i am looking for places to take some classes if i can find some that will work with my work.

Does anyone know of any active Sony OVF forum? It seems that nobody cares for the A700 in dpreview. The same in 'dyxum.com'. The forum in 'dynaxdigital.com' is inactive. Maybe the 'Konika-Minolta' forum could include the Sony OVF users?

I recently purchased a A7 to go along with my A700 (which I won't give up, I like it that much!). With the LA-EA4, I can use my older A mount lenses that I feel are important to me (like my 70-200 f2.8). Anyhow, my thought is currently there is a lack of E mount Full Frame lenses on the market. However, there are some for the A mounts. If I understand things correctly, if I buy a 12-24mm full frame A mount lens, I would, with the adapter, be able to use the A700 with the full frame lens,...

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 Savagehttp://www.flickr.com/photos/mrnoronha/sets/
