  • The old a99 doesn't justify that amount of money on repairs. Unfortunately the a7ii with the adapter is no option either. The LA-EA4 adapter is clumsy and offers a really poor autofocus ...
  • Obviously you didn't get what I was saying and I didn't get the point I was referring to. The battery life of mirrorless cameras is often so bad, that you have to charge it while taking the ...
  • You are correct but I have my reasons. I used to be an a-mount guy and had an a850 but afterwards the SLTs and especially the a99 made me switch brands due to several aspects. For me and many ...
  • Replied in 5D IV or 7D II
    The only things the 7d does better are framerate, price and reach when paired with the right lenses. Otherwise the 5DIV is the better choice and offer great video and image quality

    I was just responding to what the OP wants. He wants: Good video and good high ISO The a99 offers: ok video but not up to today's expectations (again: poor codec, only 1080, no profiles, no ibis ...
  • At this point I wouldn't bother with the a99 and go directly to the a99ii if you absolutely want to have an a-mount camera. You still have to spend a significant amount of money for a 5 year old, ...
  • Welcome to the Sony lens line-up and it's flaws. The 50 1.8 is affordable and ok but plasticy and cheaply made. The 55 1.8 is bigger, better but overpriced for a 1.8 lens. The Sigma is 1.4 and ...
  • But using usb charging, you have to open at least one of the sealed flaps and expose the usb port. There goes your weather sealing

    Yes, it does just like its predecessor

    You get eye AF with the few expensive ssm lenses. Screw drive lenses aren't supported. the canon adapters almost all allow it.

    PS. Sony does indeed not care about A-mount users. Making them buy...

  • The best value is certainly hard to quantify. While some other brands might be more rich in specs and features, canon is still the way to go for several reasons. Presence: canon cameras are popular ...
  • Battery life and weather sealing are the big questions here. Generally speaking both areas are still cases where DSLRs shine. Sony battery performance is rubbish except for the A9 so you will be ...

    That is because it isn't a DSLR but an awkward mix of DSLRish body without a mirror while not being a proper mirrorless design. Kinda stuck in the middle without appealing to any party in a special...

    The LA-EA4 adapter simply overrides the internal AF system and replaces it with the ancient one in the adapter. None of the fancy focussing features are supported. The LA-EA3 allows acces to these...

    The a99ii has a few major flaws. The autofocus system has been shown to be not that reliable by DPR but even more so, the loss of light due to the SLT system and the lack of proper manufacturer and...

  • Unfortunately, most units of this lens don't do well. The lens is an ancient design and has serious flaws. The field curvature is massive and soft corners are a typical result. Chromatic aberration ...
  • Of course time hasn't stood still and the leaps forward in image quality are noticable, especially compared to old cameras. But comparing the old a99 is a particularly bad case. A Nikon d800 or...

  • Unless there is some sort of automatic stitching, a result that is free of any motion artifacts and fast enough burst rate to shoot 90% of all scenes that way this is an utterly useless feature and...

  • the question was about a full frame camera, not crop cameras and not crop lenses. And I only listed the downsides of the old and outdated a99. I wasn't talking about the a99ii
  • I told him that the a99ii is the logical choice, the a99 isn't
