Hello everyone, I am choosing from two cameras: Pentax K-50 (with a stock sense 18-135) and Sony A58 (with two lenses: 18-55 and 55-300). A58 is cheaper, but K-50 is weather sealed and has an AF assist lamp. I read a lot about both of them, but still did not manage to make up my mind. Which camera you would recommend to go for and why? I do not know much about photography (just started couple of weeks ago), so all hints do matter.   Many thanks for your opinions.  Cheers, Alex

Hi guys. I just bought the Samyang 14mm f/2.8 lens for my Sony A58.  For some reason I am not able to adjust the shutter when using this lens. Anyone have any idea why? This is the only lens that I've tried on my camera that I've experienced this issue with...  Cheers!

Hi, Had A6k one year or so, opinions conflict: +Feels rather good in the hand (but not in a solid kind of way, unlike the Minolta XD7 as well as the A7) +Can give all the shallow dof I need, at least at mfd, and all IQ I require at lower ISOs +Fits with smaller lenses in a jacket pocket, fits well in larger bag +Does not intimidate a lot when shooting people +Fast AF, though seldom required, works pretty well when required. <<<< -Can't seem to use A mode since stays at 1/60 too often. This...

Myself and my wife shoot with a variety of A mount cameras. an A580, A900, A700. We shot mostly while travelling in Asia. We shot a variety of landscapes, street shooting and portraits of people we meet. My wife uses a Sigma DC 18-250 F3.5-6.3 with the A580 and I use my 70-210 f4 a lot of the time on my A900 and previously on my A700. We shoot alot of photos and they are most often crisp, sharp and very good overall. However we also get a fair amount of shots we call the"nothing in focus...

Hi! I have been thinking of getting the Tamron 150-600 mm lens for birding. I have tried to decide if between getting the a58 or the LA-EA4 adaptoer for my A6000. In Sweden they now cost almost the same(with kit lens included), so the choice is not based on cost. So far I have come up with these points, I now ask to see if anyone have a suggestion for what is the best option. Sony a58 pros: IBIS, battery life?, a second camera body Cons: old sensor, less resolution, no micro adjust (haven't...

hello.  im very new to photography, but I purchased a sony a58 with a standard SAL18552 lens.  something weird is happening. When I am in autofocus mode while shooting a video, there are no problems.  When I am in MF mode on the camera and on the lens, the movie is shot at about 10-12 fps instead of 29.97fps.  I am really confused about what is going on. Can someone please help?

Hello to all!  I brought a manufacturer-refurbished Cyber-shot from Sony a couple of years ago.  I love the simplicity of operation and clarity of shots.  I had a opportunity to get an Alpha a58 for a very reasonable price recently.  I like the form factor of both cameras (even though I wish that a lefty model was available).  The prior owner told me that the Superior and Intelligent Modes didn't work in sunlight.  After "fiddling" with the camera, I discovered that the camera doesn't take...
