To switch from AFto MF, do you have to f lip the switch on the body and lens or just the lens? And will thick filter cause vignetting at 11mm? --Sony A77ii 16-50 2.8, 55-300 4.5-5.6DT SAM, many Nikons digital and film and Pentax 645 man focusBill

I feel that a lens in the 50-70mm range is too short for macro. More interested in 90-105mm range(that is not too expensive). Do the old Minolta lenses offer TTL flash, image stabilazation, AF fine tune micro adjust, and other good features of the A77II? And is there any real disadvantage to having the focus motor in the body vs in the lens? Do all Sony bodies focus lenses without the built in motor or just the high end bodies(like Nikon)? --Sony A77ii 16-50 2.8, 55-300 4.5-5.6DT SAM, many...

Today I called the local camera shop that cleans the sensors on my Nikons. I asked about SOny SLT's and he said they don't "touch" them because the mirror is so easily damaged. Where do you guys send yours to get the sensor and mirror cleaned? Does the mirror need cleaning as often as the sensor? I'm new to Sonyland. --Sony A77ii 16-50 2.8, 55-300 4.5-5.6DT SAM, many Nikons digital and film and Pentax 645 man focusBill

Have you been able to determine which IS works best, camera or lens. I assume both on is a bad idea? --It ain't rocket surgery.

I just got an a77ii and I can't seem to get my popup to work as a controller.  I have the camera in WL flash mode, and my Nissin i40 in a wireless mode, but when I take a shot, I'm still getting tons of flash from the popup... can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.  TIA.

Is there a way to pop up the flash for AF assist without the flash firing for the shot in manual or aperture priority mode?--Sony A77ii 16-50 2.8, 55-300 4.5-5.6DT SAM and many Nikons digital and film and Pentax 645 man focusBill

While looking (with no luck so far) for any aftermarket eyecups for the A65 (the bigger ones, providing more shade), I came across this product: http://www.ebay.com/itm/1-3x-Magnifier-Eyepiece-Eyecup-viewfinder-to-Sony-a77-a65-a580-a55-a35-A55-SLR-/110855078985?pt=US_Viewfinders_Eyecups&hash=item19cf7a4449 Anybody got one of these by any chance? Is it just cheap china gimmick or could it indeed provide some eye relief? How about using it with eyeglasses? Of course it would block the eye...

When I push the red button to start recording movies, I get a tighter crop. The clear image zoom is set to 1.0X and I didn't notice this before. Just in the past couple of days. I went through all the menu and didn't see anything that applied to that. Am I overlooking some setting?--Sony A77ii 16-50 2.8, 55-300 4.5-5.6DT SAMBill

Hi, I have just ordered an A77 mk II and a Sigma 300mm F/2.8, plus the 1.4x and 2x EX teleconverters, primarily for walk-around bird photography, generally without a tripod. I gather the lens is pretty long with its hood extended - that part is optional, but I really don't want to be having to take the lens or TCs off just to put it in a bag, as I like quick access. Does anyone happen to know of a reasonably priced bag that happens to fit this combo well? or other protection options? I'm...

I downloaded the help guide from Sony's site and have watched Youtube videos. But haven't figured out how to change what's in memory 1, 2, and 3. I can recall it, but how do you change the settings?
