To whom who has/had been using a Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di PZD Lens for Sony - I am interested in buying the lens for my A99, but I can't find information whether the lens are DMF compatible. DMF is a deal breaker for me. Thank you for the info.

Has there been a comparison between the focus/acquisition  speed of the A7 mkii and the A99, a camera that many might update from. I assume that there will be a slight advantage to A99 even in reasonable light, but perhaps not.

I have the FE 16-35 and 24-70 on the way for testing (loaners from Sony) and I'm planning on comparing how they hold up agains my A-mount F2.8 equivalents.  The plan is to compare them side by side within available apertures/fl settings, A-mount zooms mounted to the A99 and E-mount zooms mounted to the A7ii. I have a feeling that the FE 16-35 F4 will smoke the A-mount version, as much as I'm quite positive that the opposite will happen with the 24-70's.  I'm basing these predictions on the...

I just got the A7 ii for 5 axis stabilization, was sick of the wobble effect on the A99... but the Zeiss 16-35 F2.8 just hunts for AF even when it's in one position (this also happens on the A7, but not as bad). The A99 is fine with AF. https://youtu.be/eAEGRLpfDTg Anyone have any ideas on this situation? --www.joshsouzaphotos.com

It appears that I will be needing an additional body for dual use (photography and videography).  I currently have the following: Sony A7S (dual use) Sony A99 (dual use) Panasonic GH4 (pretty much video only) If not for the announcement of the A7Rii, I would just buy the A77ii and call it a day.  In fact before the announcement I wouldn't have even had any interest in the A7Rii because I assumed Sony would simply improve low light and increase resolution, however the internal 4K and...

I could really use some help, please.  I am taking a class to learn how to shoot with studio strobes.  I just got my equipment less than 48 hours ago.  I am having trouble focusing on my subject with my A99 because I can barely see through the viewfinder or on the screen using ISO 100.  When I raise my ISO to 1250, I can see my subject, but, of course, it is blown out because of the high ISO.  Is this because of the optical viewfinder?  Do any of you have any tips for me to be able to see my...

I am looking for a good macro lens for some ring shots and such.  I've never owned a macro lens before so I do not know if they are also useful as normal lenses.  I think the only choices are 50mm/2.8 and 100mm/2.8.  Both seem about the same price on eBay.  There are the D versions which work with AF-D on the A99, which I own. With that said, I am looking for the lens which has the best sharpness and if they work as normal lenses, I want good AF speed.  I would also lean more to the 50mm if...

Hi, I was using auto HDR 6 stops last week when I was shooting landscapes during a sunny day at mid day.  The pics had shadows and bright light.  All my HDR pics came out looking over- saturated with unnatural color (see attachment).  Is there any trick to using the HDR feature that I'm not aware of?  Am I asking too much of the camera by using 6 stops?  Any comments or advice would be appreciated. Fred Auto HDR 6 stops.  It helped with the dynamic range but the pic looks overprocessed and...

I have a set of Pixel Soldiers (TX and RX) that with adaptors, sit on my A99 and HS60 respectively. The are powered up and the TX has a green LED but the RX only has a slowly flashing red LED.  I have selected the same set, A (but have tried C) on both but nothing ? Some setting I am missing on the camera or on the flash ? I know there's no TTL so I just expected the flash to fire... and I would adjust the flash power manually... What am I doing wrong ?

It's hard for me to design. A7II with 5 Axis Stab, but lens only A Mount <-- I hate this. A99 with a lot of A Mount Lens. I found 2 deals for this camera under $1500. Which one should I buy? If you have money, and you can only pick one. which one you should pick? P/S: I shoot outdoor fashion, portraits only. --Add me?
