  • man thats just bad luck.  Both of the sigmas i had were reliable but i didnt keep them very long.  Ive owned probably 20 cameras only a pentax K-R failed on me, and my nikon d750 was fixed under ...
  • I was using a Nikon D750 and the camera just flat out worked.  Never missed a shot, legendary low light performance, great dynamic range... but I just never enjoyed using it.  It never frustrated ...
  • Yeah,. I think they offered me $436 for a mint Sony a7ii with all the original packaging, accessories and less then a year old. I had zero trouble selling my sigmas on ebay.  Kinda regret selling ...
  • Replied in New a7ii
    It would be helpful if you could post some examples with i assume a6000 and the a7ii and describe why your expectations are not met.  I went from a Nikon D750 to the a99 and then a7ii and i too ...
  • i really dont think its a limitation of the surface hardware.  I have a surface pro 4 i5 available to test -- but id start with making sure you have all the windows updates,  go into power options ...
  • I had zero lag editing 24mp d600 raw files on a lenovo T420 i5-2430m.  8gb of ram, 128gb ssd.  I think your specs are fine, something else must be going on.  Maybe antivirus or windows update was ...
  • Though, when i did paid gigs at car shows i probably did 10,000-15,000 a day.   I had to take pictures of every classic car on its way into the show against a nice wooded backdrop.
  • Im sure i would love it, but im also pretty happy with a $40 70-210mm F4 beercan set to 135mm :-)
  • Replied in adapter
    I have a sigma MC11 adapter for my sony.  It makes the camera unbalanced and basically as heavy/large as a traditional DSLR.  The whole point of going to a mirrorless is to reduce weight and ...
  • I currently have an A7ii and i am considering A7r2, Z6, Fuji X-T3.   I really like the way the Z6 handles, but i dont care for the lens selection currently.  im pretty sure i am going to go with ...
  • Replied in A7r or A7ii?
    i think i would only take the a7r over the a7ii if your focus is landscapes.  Portraits dont need critical sharpness and shutter shock issue of a7r might be annoying to work around.  With that ...
  • I love the idea of renting... until it comes time to pay for it.  Renting both may end up eating 20-30% of his budget.  Id rather handle one in a local camera store / best buy and put that rental ...
  • If i was doing paid gigs, id feel more comfortable with the 6D ii autofocus. For my own photography I often need more dynamic range and the 6d is a turn off for me. The sony is smaller and cheaper ...
  • My a7ii with 50mm F1.8 FE is basically the same size and weight as your M.   Nothing is stopping an A7 user from using APS-C lenses either.  sometimes i put on a Sigma 30mm F1.4 DC art lens and ...
  • I love using fujis. Their camera bodies and lenses are a delight to hold and use. The sony takes much better low light shots and gives you better depth of field control, but i do not enjoy using them.
  • I was hesitant to reply, but what the heck ill chime in.   Why not buy a new Sony A7Rii from 6ave for $1550 shipped ?  I currently have an A7ii and strongly considering the A7rii myself. I have ...
  • Ive tried nearly every camera ever made and the ONE THING that makes all the difference at low light indoor photography is a flash bounced off the ceiling. My YN560 manual flash has an index card ...
  • Replied in Sony a7ii here
    auto focus is slow, but it works.
  • He has a point, i am not saying the photos will be bad -- but if your not going to use video then yes, you should have got an A7ii.  I paid $759 from bestbuy for my open box A7ii. This is all ...
  • It would do the job, but please dont buy that machine. For $250 you could get something off lease like a dell latitude or lenovo T450 or something with a fourth generation or better core i5. I have ...
