I own an NEX-6, the Sony 16-50 kit lens for landscapes and video, Sony 30mm macro lens, and Sony 50mm lens for portraits. I'm very interested in purchasing the Zeiss 16-70 lens to replace these 3 lenses in order to improve my IQ and simplify my lens options. I also own the Sony 35mm, but I want to keep that for my low light needs. And yes, I do know that I would probably have to use extension tubes or something similar to do macro photography with the 16-70 Zeiss. My questions is, does it...
Had a x30 for about a month now and I'm very satisfied. However... I've been after a fast 35mm equivalent lens for my other system but after seeing prices for a used x100 I'm now very tempted to pick one up. My question is whether the x30 would be able to read the files from the x100 to allow me to transfer them using my phone via wifi. This would be a very handy feature. The x100 is half the cost of a used x100s and over a 3rd less than a x100t. I know its 4 years old now, but from what I...
I'm going on a 3 week trip to the US east coast this year and am considering getting a Sony 16-70 Z to use with my NEX-6, but thought I'd rent one rather than buy to see what I thought of it. A web search for UK-based lens rentals brings up companies that rent Canon and Nikon lenses only, no sign of anyone renting Sony lenses. Does anyone know of a company in the UK that rents out Sony e-mount lenses?
I will receive the Titanium version of EM5 mkii next week. i have doubt about lens for my use. i bought the camera only for collection, video and little macro . Videos best option because my A77 is very heavy to use. Macro is a little fun work and I make few shoots with nex6 and Cosina 100mm(I shot ice creams for my shop). i don' t know if is a good idea buy 12-50 or go to another lens because a friend told me about the good quality of 14-150 and 12-40. the top 12-40 I see very expensive and...
I have seen some good prices but it looks like an import & sell operation, probably HK, but say they include import taxes (UK only). Have you had any problems or success with them? Thanks for your assist. http://slrhut.co.uk/product/ID1481C68/google?mkwid=o3aOrybv&pcrid=40141408916&gclid=CKvIwdjf8MUCFQXJtAodaSEALA --NEX7, NEX6, SEL 50/1.8, SEL1018, kit1855&1650PZ, SEL18200oss, Samyang 8mm, Sigma30 plus Pentax/Olympus manual glass, RX100 on hand
Just been pointed out to me there are silicone body covers that give a fair measure of protection from the elements for A6000. http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2050601.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0.H0.Xsilicone+A6000.TRS0&_nkw=silicone+A6000&_sacat=0 Have you any comments on how well they work in use? Amount of protection in each key area and against what? How easy buttons and use is with it on? Drop protection? Have you extended a cover in any way to protect the other areas? (I...
Mk 1 versions of RX100 seem prone to develop random switching on due to the "play" button presumably "shorting". This means that just sitting on a table, untouched the camera will just switch on and maybe switch between replay and shoot multiple times. Several dozens of people have reported this issue (it seems fixed in Mk 2 & 3). See here my thread in Sony Cyber-shot forum for background. One person reported "removing the metal shim behind the switch" to disable it making any contact but...
When I look at a given prime lens on DXO, the scores on the A7R are much higher for the same lens and often marginally better on another APSC camera like the A5000, which has fewer but larger pixels. Are these lenses just not able to resolve sharply enough for the small A6000 pixels? Are the smaller 24mpx too much for an APSC sensor? But, if that is the case why does the A6000 have so much more detail than the NEX6 on the DPReview studio comparison screen? The A6000 looks almost...
I have the back off RX100 and a flight soon. I'd like to disable the picture review button as it is causing random and repeated switching from off to review to take shots. Following Grom1300 posting I was inspired to have a go and he mentions removing a metal shim to disable SWITCH BLOCK CONTROL 149043511. But I can't make out what he means and it not obvious how to access the switch (between a mount plate and the rear outer casing) or how to disable it. A thin plastic shim slipped between...
