Jusr started doing macro seriously.. so using F16 a lot. But now see a lot of 'dirt spots' emanating from mirror that I cannot clean off. I'm happy with sensor cleaning (Arctic Butterfly) but no idea how to clean the mirror. Any suggestions? TIA --LesP

Lenstip.com says that the mirror affects the resolution of lenses which are faster than 2.8 with a resolution higher than 200 lp/mm. http://www.lenstip.com/137.5-article-Everything_you_always_wanted_to_know_about_the_semi-transparent_mirror_technology_(but_were_afraid_to_ask)_Test_of_the_Sony_A99_mirror_.html Which A mount lens falls into this category?

I added an A99 to my collection this week, along side my trusty A77. So far I really like it quite a bit, but there are a few oddities/quirks I'm concerned about. Since I purchased the camera used, I want to know if these are abnormal problems, or if it just takes some time getting used to the differences. 1. During long exposures (4 seconds tested here) the A99 makes a terrible noise. Almost like an autofocus motor is hunting. Does your A99 make noticeable noise during long exposures? 2. I...

It will be used on a A99 and I would like it to be compatible with lenses like Zeiss 24-70 and Tamron 70-200. Thanks.

I have a nice kit of lenses for our two a99s, and I'm thinking of ditching them for the a7II. I already have an a7r and an a7s but the primary purpose of the a7II would be action-y outdoor shooting and I'd want it to be an improvement over the a99 performance. Every test I've seen mentions the improved autofocus performance of the a7II (over the previous model) but I'm thinking that the reviewers are using FE lenses.

How do I set up my a99 to video manuel mode???? It goes directly to automatic and than for some reason when I hit the record button it crops the image for video. So i lose my full frame sensor. Why???? --http://www.viewbug.com/member/vincentlopezTechnology does not take good photos, people do.

I know it's not on the roadmap. I'm wondering whether to just finally say "oh all right you win" and pick up the current F4 or wait. I can wait, but the longer I do the more I feel the absence of a genuinely good 24-70. I do still have an LA-EA4 just in case but I really did not like the handling of the A-mount lenses on the A7, I'd rather switch to using an A99 in that case (and I'm not planning for that to happen).
