Just see in ebay that minolta 600 F4 is in my budget. But there are too less photo in flickr or review site. Yes I read Dyxum and I want more sample image with more modern camera like A77II, A99, or even A7R/A7s/A7R2. I own Tamron 150-600 and I love this lens in 150-450 only. 600 is not too shape to me so I would like to know is minolta good to me or not.
Hello, I decided to upgrade my A99's firmware from 1.01 to 1.02. I downloaded all the apps (mac) and started the update process. And it failed at some point during the actual update. The app suggested turning the camera off and trying again. But the camera wouldn't turn on. At all. Turning the on/off ring makes no difference. And as long as there's battery in the camera, the red light at the bottom (the one that's usually blinking when a memory card is being used) - doesn't matter whether...
The a99 is rated for 200,000 shutter actuations. Using one of the available tools, mine has 212,000+ shots. So I have passed the rated number... what can I expect? Will it fail immediately, and without prior notice? Or will I have odd behavior (overexposed here and there) for a while and then it fails? Does anyone know if replacement of the shutter is covered under the extended warranty? --Want a roXplosion!?
I do love the A6000 and was looking into also an A7 soon. Do I dump old screw mount lens and go E mount or use the adapter and use my older lens? The Tamron 24-70mm 2.8 is the only one with USD and not sure if using the other LA-EA3 adapter will phase detection auto focus. Any thoughts? A Mount list, Full frame. Minolta/Maxxum, 16mm f2.8, 24mm f2, 50mm f1.4, 28-135mm F4, 100-300mm f4 APO and 80-200mm f2.8 HD G. Tamron 90mm f2.8 macro, New style 24-70mm 2.8 USD Sigma 100-500mm f5.6 APC, Sony...
Hi.. I'm a long time user of A99 and love the camera. Seeing the mirror-less hype though, I am thinking of buying an A7xx body. Question: Should I go for the cheaper A7II, or the much more expensive and latest A7RII? There is about a $1,000 price difference between the two. Can anyone comment if that price difference is really important.. and how much better would the results be than the A99?
I noticed this on a recent trip and have been able to spend some time with the camera since. When I use the camera with any lens it allows me to set the f/stop, however when I take the picture the camera always sets the f/stop wide open (ie. f/4 or f/2.8, depending on which lens I use). So I tested with DOF and sure enough, no matter what I set the f/stop for the preview only shows me max. The result, of course, is pictures that are over exposed and with shallower DOF than I intended. Now you...
I am shooting with A6000 and Carl 135mm 1.8 + some M42 lens. The A6000 is not good for at night, with ISo 1600/3200+ , the photo is bad. ( because I shoot Portrait only, no landscape, so I don't like tripod ). I heard A99 have sensor shift too, how it's compare to the A7 II ? and A7S / A7RII , can shoot at fast shutter with very hight ISO like 10,000+ and the photo still look good, right? Do you think a sensor shift is better than high ISO like A7S / A7R II ? --Add me? We shoot...
My cat broke my a99 today so I went to the camera store and they had 1 a7rii so I bought it because of my business and booked appointmens. Anyways, I currently have 3 sigma a mount lenses: Sigma 85 1.4 Sigma 50 1.4 (not art) Sigma 35 1.4 ART I just purchased the Sony LA EA3 adaptor, does anyone know if these lenses would work properly as far as auto focus with the new technology in the a7rii?
